Carbon backup app lands on Google Play
The latest backup application for Android that we told you about recently just went out of beta. We’re talking about a little app called Carbon Backup, and now, those who want to can download it by choosing either one of its two available versions on Google Play.
In case you didn’t know, Carbon Backup is product of the hard work and dedication of one man named Koushik Dutta. This is the same man responsible for the very popular ClockworkMod Recovery and he has a few other apps to his name. Now, with Carbon Backup, he’s taking on Titanium Backup and its ilk.
As mentioned earlier, Carbon Backup for Android is available in two different versions. First, there’s an ad-supported version that can be downloaded for free. Then there’s also a premium version that’s available for $4.99. Carbon Premium doesn’t have ads and allows cloud backup and restore to online services such as Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive.
Now that the app is out of beta, it offers one very important feature that was noticeably absent from earlier versions. It can now be used to back up applications without the need for rooting. Thanks to an accompanying desktop program, rooting is no longer necessary.
