    Too bad no Box.com support, I have 50 GB on Box.com which this would be amazing for.

    Duhh!! That’s one of the points of rooting/root apps. Google copy and help make future versions of android better.. #carbon. Nice.

    LOL @ hashtag.

    How is this different from Titanium Backup? It can backup to Box and Dropbox already?

    So, if I understand this correctly, the current version of the app – and the apk download linked in the article – is only useable on rooted devices? I don’t mean to be rhetorical with my question either.

    • MattyMattMatt

      Yes, it currently needs, but why would you not be rooted?

  • Shervin

    Please…stop posting pictures of that damned Nexus.

    WHY CANT I HAVE ONE?

    It currently requires Root (for the Beta), but Koush says the final version won’t require it. Not too sure how he’ll make the magic happen, but I’m excited to see this happen.

    Even without root, it should be simple enough to back “non-market” apps, and save a “catalog” of DRM’d app + the app data. The application data is really the key here, because really, restoring an app from the play store is easy, but you always loose the data…

    Titanium backup will always be better.
