G Cloud Backup

Wanna backup your contacts, messages, photos, videos and many more? If yes then this is the right app for you.

G Cloud Backup is a cloud based storage system which backs up your important data. Never worry about upgrading to a new phone, if you wanna do hard reset, if you loose your phone, etc. Your precious data can be restored with ease. For a free user the memory given is 1GB and can earn up to 10GB for Free!. Unlimited storage can be gained by spending few pennies.

Root access is not required for anything, so this one is for everyone. The cloud part is Amazon's S3 cloud storage. There is no shortage of options that are provided by G Cloud. 
The app itself is so incredibly simple to use, with a very simple user interface. G Cloud Backup has a pretty extensive feature list.

G Cloud Backup provides facility to back up and restore of the followings,

> Contacts
> Call log
> Messages
> Photos
> Videos
> Music
> Documents
> Calendars
> System Settings
> Browser Data

An important feature of this app is that it stores all the backups made with respect to time(Backs up every version of all files). For example, the app does not overwrite the Contacts back up made today with the one which was made yesterday.

The first tab you are shown upon signing in is the dashboard or home. Next is the scheduled backup, how much of your storage you've used, anything pending and how much has been backed up already. At the bottom are the options for getting extra free storage or upgrading to more storage by paying some money.

The other tab is basically just a list with check boxes. Simple, clean, effective. It's all about backing up to your own choices, you just select what you want from the list. In addition to regular backup things like photos and videos, there are options to back up such information as system settings, browser data.

Contacts backup is useful to have, but it duplicates the contacts that are already restored by your google account. Google account just backs up the contacts that are stored under your Google account but G Cloud backs up the contacts that are stored in phone, sim, multiple google accounts. Pretty nice thing to backup contacts.

The new feature of G Cloud is that it can protect your apps settings, game levels, app customization and more but strictly works only for Rooted devices.  
There is a web version of G Cloud available at
