Android backup solution Carbon out of beta and in the Play Store
0. phoneArena 30 Jan 2013, 14:57 posted on
A couple weeks ago, we told you that Koush, creator of ClockworkMod Recovery and ROM Manager, had a new beta app in the works for Android users. The app, called Carbon, promised to be the app backup and sync solution that was missing from the platform, and today that app left its beta status behind and was released into the Google Play Store...

Yeah apparently blogs started publishing stuff about it being in the store before he was ready and he had to put it into the store a little earlier than he liked.

I'm hopeful that this will be included in one of the future versions of Android, along with a power-saving option.It's almost ironic that today, most of battery drains that happen on current Android smartphone are from Google services which misbehave and don't know when to stop trying to contact Google.

Wow, no more titanium backup. This makes flashing roms more interesting :D

What do you mean? How does this change flashing ROMs?

Technically its the same if not a longer process, unless they have a website where you can go to after flashing so you can sign in and sync. Otherwise great idea for nexus and non micro SD compatible devices.

Well doesn't this make sure all of your apps are backed up to a cloud where you can just sync and keep going from where you left off?
13. Atrixboyyy (Posts: 278; Member since: 03 Nov 2011)
Yes they both do but without a website its practically the same except you'll have to download and restore instead of just restoring

"The only thing to be wary of is that the app will not work on Motorola devices because Motorola devices have a bug that breaks Android's backup mechanism. "

Edit: excluding d fact that it doesn't require root
