Android backup solution Carbon out of beta and in the Play Store

it does not require a rooted device. Setup will have a couple extra steps if you aren't rooted, but the app will still work, which automatically gives Carbon a step up on the reigning Android backup king, Titanium Backup.The app is designed to allow users to backup apps and app data to local storage or the cloud, or to sync apps and data between Android devices. But, the best thing about the app is that
The app comes in two flavors. There is a free version of the app which is ad-supported and limits users to backups and restores from local storage or your PC, and the premium version ($4.99) which removes the ads and allows for automatic backups, syncing between Android devices, and backing up to cloud services Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box.
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.

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

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.
