An attempt to build a Cloud based Mobile Data Backup System
Wishing a very Happy New Year to everyone, and to all you pirates out there, may this new year bring new adventures in your life and prove to be a great one for you, your team and your venture(s)! 🙂
In this post, I wanted to share something which I have been working on as part of my BTP (B.Tech Project) at IIIT-D. Basically it’s a mobile data backup system, to make the process of backup and restoration of mobile data, extremely easy.
Let me put it this way: Have you ever Reset your Phone?
Or moved on to a new phone (possibly using a different platform than the previous one)?
Or for some reason, realized (after it was too late as you just messed up with something) that you really needed to have a backup?
Or postponed upgrading your mobile OS just to avoid the frustration of first backing up all your data and then restoring, and still feeling like having landed up on an alien planet!
Has something as unfortunate as your phone getting stolen/lost occurred to you, and after that you’re putting chat/fb status for everyone to msg you their numbers as you didn’t have any backup?
Are you one of those who hate the so called “PC-Suite” software?
What if all your important mobile phone data (including, but not limited to, your contacts, SMS, music, files, etc) could be backed up on the cloud with just 1 click, and restored in another click?
What if it also provides you option to do selective backup/restore so that you have full control over what you want to backup and restore?
What if the UI of the application is very intuitive and easy to use, and you don’t have to be a geek to be able to understand and use it!
And, the best part, what if all this just works out of the box on different mobile platforms, so that switching to a new mobile, if needed, is as seamless as it could be?
Do you feel that it could be useful for you? Have suggestions? Feel free to comment below or get in touch with me on Twitter, here or drop me a mail at: [ me at atulgoyal dot com ]. And push the +1/Like/Tweet button. (See the buttons on the left are really trying hard to get your attention! :P)
From January, we’re starting to test out the Android version on a small group of people. If you use an Android and want to be eligible to be a premium user (basic + advanced features for free) for lifetime, contact me. Only limited no. of free premium versions to be distributed. If you don’t use an Android, don’t worry, not too long before we’re done building a version for your platform. Let me know app for which platform you want me to roll out next ! 🙂
