Slight backup

A very simple backup program

This small program allows you to backup and restore specific data:


  • SMS (only if the standard application is used)

  • Call-logs (no voicemails)

  • Settings (experimental)

  • Bookmarks (only stock browser; no folders are supported)

  • Playlists

  • User dictionaries

There is experimental support for Contacts, performed via the internal vcs capabilities.

The backups are stored unencrypted in an editable location on the SD card.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
