Carbon backup

Carbon (the backup app) is a kick ass way to backup and restore apps and their precious data on your Android phone or tablet. It's simple, looks great, works even better, and doesn't need root or any fancy hocus-pocus to get it to work. We think it's the way Google should have done it. The free version works great, backing up all your data to the device, but the premium version takes things a step further by placing all your data in your Dropbox, Google Drive, or account. Yay the cloud!

There's one thing that could make it better, and that's getting a free Carbon Premium code. Koush hooked us up with 20 of them to give away, and here's your chance. Comment on this post, telling everyone what data you need to back up, and sometime after midnight (Eastern time) we'll pick 20 winners. No muss, no fuss.

If you're not sure because you haven't tried Carbon backup just yet, now is the time. Hit the Google Play link above and see why everyone is loving this one.

metaldood says:

I backup my entire device and would like to sync across my s3 and nexus 7

Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online.(Click Home information)

I'd like one

Jin Zhao says:

backing up gaming data is a plus

My Samsung Galaxy S III just suffered from SDS so I need a Carbon key to make sure I never suffer from data loss in the future

BTW, this old Nokia brick is really terrible

Treknologist says:

I need to backup all my gaming data! A free code for Carbon would be quite welcome for that. :)

michael13162 says:

This is very true for me as well. May I has plz ^_^

all my game data :)

I'm hopefully getting a new phone soon (Nexus 4), so I'd like to back up all of my media and apps.

WindRunner says:

Syncing the sideloaded apps is nice, but really we know this is all just gold for people who want to keep their games synced up. Storing it in the cloud along the way is just a bonus! :)

yocubed says:

I'd back up my important texts and pictures that i don't want lost. also all my settings in my favorite apps that i'd otherwise loose when resetting the phone

I love ROM-ing and developing so I lose a lot of data between flashes so yeah.

Backing up almost everything.

I really need to back up all my pr0n. It's critical that doesn't go missing...

GUI_Center says:

What data don't I need to backup? Everything!

imnuts says:

I would use it to back up my app data for frequently used apps, mainly messaging though to save my text messages. Also, syncing app settings for other things like camera and Gmail. But, if you're a crack flasher, or someone who does a lot of ROM testing, backing up everything so you can restore it on a new ROM is always nice as well.

Harlemknight says:

Let me get one please!

dmart81 says:

I need to back up my calendars, quotes for prospective clients, all my pictures, and especially my musica.

Vance14 says:

My app data is the most important, since I use Folder Sync already to save my photos and the cloud to store my documents. The ability to just have Carbon prompt to install the apps from the Play store, then having it drop all my data back in an awesome feeling!

uluaz says:

I need to back up a LOT of game save data, all of my passwords, and pictures across multiple devices. a premium code would be awesome. thanks once again AC for another awesome contest!

Game scores when I switch phones and a lot of other things!

kngsxvigil says:

Now more than ever. RN to BSN program data and all of my pictures so that when I'm dead others can see who I was.

techboydino says:

What don't I need to back up. With my frequent crack flashing habits, losing game and app data is a PITA. I'm loving Carbon so far but adding it to my multi GB's of cloud data would be the bees knees. I'm in.

SaMo0204 says:

I want one!
I neet to back up my contactbook because my phone it's my work assistant too. My pics, I love to take pics of everything. And apps, I'm loaded with tons from games to work related apps.

I need to back all my saved game files!!!

Sdheller106 says:

Pictures of my newborn daughter... videos also

gatorleg1234 says:

I need to back up everything but mostly my work related stuff!

plasmoidia says:

App data, of course. Things like game progress so I don't have to play the game once on my phone and once on my tablet (Carbon can sync between devices!).

ApocX99 says:

I need to back up my game data

I need to backup everything, in fact. But AnMoney and Cut the Rope are my priorities.

dpaskvan says:

I have over 150 applications installed on my tablet, so it's a bit hard to decide which ones I need backed up the most. Game progress, of course, and... Oh who am I kidding? I just want to back up my game data (Rayman, Temple Run 2, Plague Inc, and so on).

Gator352 says:

I just need to back up my phone reliably. And I think carbon is the way to go.

downtown3641 says:

In have an upgrade coming next month, so I'll need to back up all my app data.

SecularRhyme says:

All of my game data!

shem2409 says:

I change the roms on my galaxy nexus all the time and would love a reliable backup solution such as Carbon Backup. I backup my contacts, pictures, music, game saves and application settings.
I think it would be great to be able to backup to the cloud like in Carbon premium. That would make my life a lot easier and more efficient.

PMarina says:

I would definitely back up my apps and settings, as I tend to customize things a lot. Cloud functionality is a huge plus, as everything else I use is on the cloud. Here's hoping I'm picked!

barchamb says:

I want to backup my Apps + Data because I change ROMs so often. :-)

palmbay24 says:

I will backup Carbon with Carbon!

imdabold1 says:

I wipe my phone very often so it would be great to have a back up to remote server that allows me to not lose my app data. No chance of losing documents as they are all in the cloud so no sweat there. But most definitely app data.

demontooth says:

I need it all backed up!!!

Bahamaboy99 says:

pick me!

datdo0d says:

consider me please

Basscase says:

I need to back everything up... So I can finally take the plunge and root this thing!

wilee1928 says:

pick me! pick me!! i really want it!!!

jazzbassist1 says:

Would love to try it out! Been using Titanium for nearly 2 years but I'd love to try something fresh!

I need to back up my game data, aCar (fuel and maintenance) data, as well as all my app login and notification settings. Having all this back up to the cloud so I don't need to do each one individually every time I want to put on a new rom would be great. Especially since I have not been leaving my roms rooted.

The most important thing I need to back up is my calendar data. If I accidentally delete from calendar then it also deletes from google calendar and it is pain to restore.
Having carbon means no more issues with accidentally deleting calendar entry. Also loosing a phone is no major issue as carbon stores apps and data on cloud.

Love it.

sk8mdw says:

I need to backup 400+ photos of my first (and only so far) granddaughter! :)

Sharon Kay says:

I have a lot of documents on my tablet that I need access to for my special needs child (i.e. proof of guardianship legal documents, medications, etc.) and need to have them backed up and available at a moment's notice. I also have photographs of my children, contact information, and all my college assignments and notes as I am beginning to work on my bachelor's degree. As a full time student and single mom of 3 ... I could sure use this!

It's good just to save any and all app data period. Also, if they could get it to work with my Droid Razr Maxx, that would be swell.

gunnz04 says:

since i am a chronic flasher...this app would aid me greatly in restoring all my data and game saves. please choose me ;)

Forly03 says:

Would have to be my whatsapp data.

I switch ROMs often, and would like an elegant backup solution like this. It'd be great to use to keep my game data in sync, too!

b_boogey_xl says:

I need to back up all my app data, texts, mms and everything... just like how backing up was on my iPhone 4 before I switched to the Nexus 4. It's one of the last few things I need to complete the experience on Android I had with my iPhone.

jbr05ki says:

I need to back up my game save files to transfer to my tablet and back to my phone. A lot of games need cloud saving!

ksk123 says:

xValiran says:

I'm in.

rkleung says:

Would love to back up all my app data.

Game saves definitely need backing up. Plus Twicca - my fav Twitter app with it's eleventy-hundred options, severely lacks a settings backup & restore option. And it doesn't hurt to back up those mobile photos to another cloud either!

SmileyXX says:

Hook me up. I backup everything

Deutch says:

My app data needs some back up!

fradster says:

Titanium is great for basic app backup, but really hasn't offered what I wanted as a total stipulation because I want to backup my texts, and other data too. Thanks for the contest, cheers.

byrds8 says:

I would back up my game data for when I switch devices. In the past 2 years I think Ive had 10 different phones lol. Needless to say I need something to back up this stuff so I can stop starting over.

iJohnny says:

I love to try out new ROMs on my Android devices, and it would be very handy to have great backup app that can sync all my devices.

Backup schedules would come in handy if i forget to backup and it would allow me to have all my data stored for safe keeping. Set and forget.

Backup to my Dropbox and gDrive would be a great feature. Single drive in my laptop and it can also get smashed if I drop it again.

When I try out new ROMs, app and data backup is a must feature. Not easy to flash 5 different ROMs in one night and set everything up to test it. It's even worse if I customize my own ROM. Testing never ends.

I hope you pick me and make my life little easier with Carbon - App Sync and Backup.

Best of luck guys. :)

scottaeaton says:

The most valuable piece of this is the ability to back-up and restore applications and all their associated data and settings. That is huge! Hope I win!!!

J_Droid says:

I need to back up all my intel - in case they get to me...

Darksurf says:

dunno if it can backup wifi connection settings, but being a Contract I.T. Tech, this could save me from remembering over 20 wifi passwords. especially when I wipe my tablet to install a new ROM :D !
I also have 2 personal email addresses, 1 shared email address (between myself and spouse), and 1 work email address that I need to backup and keep managed. D:

JsinLegacy says:

I Have to back up everything mainly because I change devices way to often and it just makes doing so easier.

I need to backup my pics and my docs and my music and I need a license to do it

alacrify says:

Need to back up everything and the groups feature would be great for flashing ROMs and testing


I like to backup app data without the app itself. Carbon seems perfect for my need.

Great app

Hopefully will grow in flexibility (e.g. select individual apps to restore from PC backup).

Xxxopusxxx says:

need to backup everything! Always!

corydunbar says:

I would be able to backup all my apps and data so keeping up with Jelly Belly on my GNex would be more enjoyable. It is already pretty good though knowing so many Devs love to support this device.

Ron Yeshulas says:

I need a place to backup my documents and photos.

hyperkind808 says:

Definately need Carbon to back up my gaming and all my app data. I jump between using my S3 and my Note 2 alot and it would be great to easily continue my gaming progress as well as have my info saved to the cloud!

I'm ready to backup my Angry birds high scores. To bad I haven't installed it (angry birds).

As much as I change my rom every other week this would come in so damn handy. If I dont win I might just have to buy it anyway.

JsinLegacy says:

I have To back up everything.. Mainly because I switch devices way to often and this just makes it easier when doing so.

espjerez says:

Pictures, a lot of pictures. And other stuff, like game data.

Naruvam says:

App data for rom surfing:-)

Nyjil says:

Mostly game save data, call logs, texts and the occasional total backup for switching roms. If you had asked me this a few months ago it would have included photos as well but G+ has been pretty helpful there with Instant Upload

beranzo says:

Not only do I backup standard things (game data, apps, etc.) I also back up photos, screen shots, emergency contacts, and text files. I work in a job where I directly serve people with developmental disabilities. Sometimes these files help when one gets hurt or when I'm trying to remember details on an incident that occured on site. I've lost files before, and it's made serving to my fullest extent harder. I have ways to back up many of the things I need professionally, but so far no one in one solution.

briankurtz79 says:

Love this app! Can't think of a battered way to secure all my(and my 2 year old daughter who's better than me at bad piggies...seriously!) Game apps and save data! Google needs to integrate this into android and Google drive!

ZoretMan says:

I need to back up all my apps and be able to restore them on my other devices.

With two tablets, a phone, and hundreds of apps and games, cloud backup is sounding reaaaaaal nice right about now... Backing up app data is not very fun...

dancing-bass says:

What WOULDN'T I need to back up?

apps/data/settings absolutely.

themana says:

I want to backup my as much as I can, I currently backup my photos and any notes to my home computer. If I could backup all my apps along with all app data that would make it extremely easy to restore if I ever ran into a issue with my phone

The Tick077 says:

I need to back everything up. I rooted my last device (Epic 4g) and used TI Backup, but on my S3 I haven't found a reason to root yet, so therefore don't have a good backup of everything. I would love a Carbon code. Thanks for doing this!

tdbacksrock says:

To back up all my app data! Awesome app by the way, works great!

jontalk says:

I have the free version and need to back up the 100+ app, Kingsoft documents, recorded stuff, some music, photos.. shall I go on? And am about to get a Nexus 7, and am sure they'll be plenty of stuff to back up on that bad boy too.. Pick me!

nopdonBKK says:

Hope to get one. I need to backup Keepassdroid password file, last time my S3 died, I lost all my recent additional passwords.

ringer13 says:

I am waiting to root my Nexus 4, and need to back up all of my apps and data (temple run 2 specifically)

greenie25 says:

I need to backup all of my games, data for logging in apps (I seem to have to reflash my phone every couple of weeks, I just can't stop doing fatal mods), and I need the google drive recovery, as storage on my 8Gb Nexus 4 is waaaaaay too tight.

msgreenf says:

I would like to backup my apps to keep game data

Montigo says:

I need to bounce apps/app data between the my phone and tablet. I NEED THAT CODE! LOL

SQ609 says:

I have to back up all my data needs and then some (I'm a truck driver). An then I must back up all my 5 year old son's apps and data for his tablet. If not, then I won't be his "favorite dad for ever, and ever".

thechints says:

Love the app. Would be awesome to get a code for unlocking premium features.

Nick Morgan says:

You mean my diabolical schemes could be wasted ? Surely my data centre in my hollowed out volcano is up to the job ? No ? Then give me this Carbon code you speak of or I will forced to set my minions against you. Be warned !

fredo166 says:

I'd like to backup photos and apps.

mugabuga says:

I need to keep my game saves backed up.

I would backup all of my apps to the cloud!

quarian17 says:

Wow firsthand experience. My galaxy samsung s3 soft bricked yesterday..and I had my friend's birthday photos and videos from the night before on it. ARGH. Boy was I upset. I didn't dare to flash it for the longest time because I was trying to figure out how to get the data out and wished there was some way I could keep important data uploaded to dropbox as and when.

I even..*ominous music* took out my sim card and put it back into my old iphone 4! That's how badly I wanted to not wipe out the phone with the photos and videos on it. Man that thing was tiny..I think my hand started to cramp holding this small old clunky iphone with a half dead home key.

Yes, I would really appreciate the pro version of this app.

kellybrf says:

I want to back up everything!

Brocco says:

Game backups would be great. Most everything else is backed up to the cloud already.

jcpetrs says:

I need to back everything up!

bellbk says:

Game data backups would be awesome!

cpaight says:

Midget porn...tiny tiny midget porn

hindustani8 says:

I'd like to have one!

leroy_sunset says:

I am headed to Turkey next week and it would be great to back up my data and apps to the cloud, in case something happens to my phone. Specifically pictures and texts.

psipher says:

I need to backup everything.

Well, I like the user interface, it's much better than TitaniumBackup. Tried to do a backup on my GNex and it failed, no explanation given.

And stop calling it free; it's NOT free. It's only free to backup, not free to restore. Fix the bugs and I will consider using it.

I want all my apps to be banned up!

I need to backup all my app settings and data. Nothing is more annoying than getting a new device and starting from scratch.

Luis Sanz says:

I live for constantly changing Rom's and devices so this is the ideal backup option for me. Please give me a code!

Hockeypuck55 says:

I need to back up those pesky Amazon Appstore apps!

I would snap if I lost my Angry Birds and Plague Inc. levels. It would also suck to lose my Key Ring Point Card information, folder information (from Folder Organizer App), Podcast subscriptions (can't wait for Pocket Cast cloud backup!), and alarm clocks.

cliffmoniz says:

I need to backup videos and photos of family and friends. Memories keep me sane thousands of miles away from home.

appmy says:

A good backup that I can use when changing devices

Nerrs says:

I dealt with a buggy and laggy version of jellybean because I didn't want to use titanium backup due to its awful interface. Would rather deal with Android 2.0 level laggyness than use the horrid mess that is titanium backup.

bassmig says:

I fear I will need to do a system restore shortly because I am having some rogue battery plummeting issues and this would oh so save me a ton of PITA restoring of data and game saves amongst other headaches. Please of please pick me!!

PS cool app. Keep up the good work!!

Barton82 says:

The only things I wouldn't need to backup are the ones that are already in the cloud.

droidman0922 says:

Holy cow, everything. Most important...should I be ashamed to say all of my Angry Birds games (ALL versions!)

bliger241 says:

I would love to be able to backup my apps, changing roms a lot is a chore without proper backup

LightChaser says:

My wife refuses to root her SGS3, and hasn't bought a whole lot of apps. She's lost her data twice already though, and I don't want her to get a third strike. Giving get Carbon Backup for Valentine's should solve that. Can I have a code please?

Fady Mahfouz says:

Well, I need to sync the games saves and data between my devices.

I would like to backup only my application cache data so that when I change my's easy to restore. One code me pls!

I'd love to be able to backup all of my apps and application (especially game saves) data! This app seems like it makes it so easy!

bar1203 says:

I need to back up everything! Photos, game data, app data! I hate having to start a game over because I switched phones or accidentally wiped something.

ClinchDroid says:

I want this so I can sync Angry Birds Star Wars between my phone and my Nexus 7.

dandinnj says:

This would be great .. as a flashoholic I need to keep backups handy :)

maverickrulz says:

I would use it to backup everything. But most importantly my game data. It would be great to pick up my N7 and start from where I left it on GNex... :)

I have a need to back up everything so if I'm able to back everything more easily than before, I say why not and go for it.

Love it, great that you don't need root. Got whatsapp working on my Samsung tab2 wifi!!:-). Made backup on phone and did a restore on the tab2. Worked first time I tried.

atomics says:

Count me in! The one thing that attracts me to carbon is its UI. Would love to give it a try as a backup solution.

n8_dc_oslo says:

I think the real question is "what wouldn't I like to back up?" Mostly games like angry birds & Granny Smith just so I don't have to keep doing the levels over & over & over & over every time I flash a new Rom. (yes i'm aware of such apps as titanium and such but they all require root which for some reason Verizon doesn't like) More importantly though I would like to back up Swiftkey so it doesn't have to re-learn all my curse words and slang I like to use. I like the idea that I can use this to switch from phone to phone to tablet, and not have to re-enter every single one of my passwords to twitter, instagram, etc. etc. I'm more than willing to pay the $5 but if I can get it for free, why the hell not?

Games, Definitely my games.

It appears I need backup software... As I just upgraded to WIN 8... And my Hard drive became corrupted somehow.... Lost everything.

Guess you have to learn the hard way.

What would ease the least for my new Nexus 4... Would be to get a FREE copy.

Keep up the good work... I visit and enjoy androd central daily... Plus I love the podcasts.

lackoftalent says:

This would be awesome for backing up game saves without root access. It's especially handy if you're playing a challenging game like superhexagon. Unlocked a new difficulty on the nexus 7 and would love to continue my progress on my brand new Nexus 4.

Thanks for the competitions guys and keep up the amazing work you do for the Android community.

idoesdroid says:

Would love to back up my apps and other miscellaneous data so that it's easy to restore when I have to wipe/change/ROM devices. Google never seems to be able to restore anything unless it's on the same device.

altazor08 says:

well, what do I need to backup? Of course my angry birds data, it's annoying to get 3 stars in each level every time i try a new rom or change something in my phone, everything else lives in the cloud, music in Play, pictures in Dropbox... oh, and my Wifi passwords :P

SalmonFrisby says:

I'd use Carbon to back up my contacts-losing them would really mess up my life!

mlr_90 says:

Awesome app!!! Would love an unlock code!!

jg274105 says:

I was kinda mad when I first read about Carbon... why could they have come out with it like 2 days earlier. I literally just reset my phone and I've decided not to go with root on this phone (Nothing I use needs root), so I ended up losing all my super important app data (Read: Games). Oh well, at least it out now and I know.

Back it up! I'll take it!

I'm always trying out different ROMs and would love to be able to back up my app data so that I don't have to set everything up from scratch every time I flash something new.

eheaps says:

Backup GAME data! High scores, progress, etc. The most frustrating thing about Android with switching devices or rom flashing, etc is the constant loss of game data without a hassle free way to backup the apps! Other apps would be useful as well, but any app with a login, isn't too bad to re-install fresh, however, keeping settings is another reason to backup!!! Love the free version of this app!!

lorissimo says:

I'd backup everything of course! :-)
