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.

Back up? My life..

rmmyyz says:

I would love an easy way to backup my pics, data, files, etc. I just went through a "brick" event and had to send in my tablet to get scraped - having carbon would have saved a lot of work.

pankey#AC says:

Angry birds for sure. And Swiftkey.

risingevil says:

I want to backup my apps data, so that I don't freak out when my phone breaks.

Hattori says:

To flash more roms.

harrylin1984 says:

Game data!
Other apps data usually auto-sync after I log into my account. I only need to backup my game data when transferring device or performing a factory reset.
I think Carbon backup suits me more than Titanium backup because of 1) simpler functionality and control, more user-friendly; 2) Holo-theme, conforming to Google's ICS+ design guideline. In a word, Carbon contains and ONLY contains the functions I desire, without tons of complicated options to burden my mind (as Titanium backup does).

nosmohtac says:

I need to back up my game data, my railroad time book, and my ewallet.
Thank you.

jprins68 says:

Data sync for game saves between my Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 would be awesome. If Google will not bake this into Android then this will have to fill the gap.

david279 says:

Gimmie one

ccano8 says:

I'm a flash-a-holic, so this would be great for storing my data.

JayJ-1974 says:

moo53 says:

I don't know how many times I've had to start over on my games when I change devices. Google needs an app data backup solution A.S.A.P. Good thing for carbon to come save the day. Oh... I guess that would be my game data lol.

Need to back up photos, last night my SD suddenly gave out and lost everything! I need backup.

I would love to backup all my app data because as i learnt afew weeks back, google backup doesnt.. =(( so my apps such as airdroid, my telstra stuff etc all were back to default.

So please let me win ;)

sikmentality says:

I backup all my apps on my Galaxy Nexus just in case. Same with my iPad. Most of time I don't have to worry because it's nothing important but it does make it more convenient in case I have to. I have pictures saved with Instant Upload but that doesn't help with the app data with switching ROMS.

Zlateway says:

Game data, especially Icy Tower 2. But when I think more about it, I like to backup everything.

srkmagnus says:

I have a two year old daughter who likes to play various games on my phone when we are out and about (Kids Connect the Dots, Toddler Tapping Zoo and others)...the problem is that I often forget to re-install these when I install a new ROM.

Using Carbon to backup and sync with my Galaxy Tab 10.1, which has her apps, is a great way to make sure I can load the apps (with data) while we are on the go.

Mastaking says:

I need to backup my titanium backup info... Just in case ;)

paul1035 says:

I could really use a copy for syncing up my Granny Smith games and PBA Bowling Games!

Would love to have my Game data, mainly Plauge inc and Hill climb racer, synced between my iconia tablet and my S3.

Thanks AC and KD

Pmac25 says:

Need to back up my app data but must important I need to back up my workout data and sync it between my phone and tablet.

Wiizoc says:

Carbon is really an amazing app! I would love the paid version to back up all my gaming data and sync them between my devices!!! Nothings worse than having to play the same level on angry birds multiple times on multiple devices to get my 3 stars! :D Thx AC, you're the best!!

mercado79 says:

Don't get me wrong, I love Titanium Backup, but the fact that it requires you to store your files on your phone's internal storage makes it a little tough to stomach when you don't have an external SD card to expand your storage with (Nexus 4). Carbon Backup looks like a great option to me!

I would love to use Carbon for syncing my data between my phone and tablet. Thanks!

alantsay says:

I'd love to be able to sync any app data between my phone and my tablet...
Thank you Koush for developing the app, and AndroidCentral for hosting the contest :)

Game data of course! It's frustrating to start all over again when you switch devices.

Need to back up all my game data so I can easily switch from my Evo LTE to my N7 and then hopefully to my M7 when it comes out.

Krynn says:

Pretty much everything?
Specifically I'd like to back up a few of my apps that don't support direct cloud storage yet (I'm looking at you, aCar!)

DraconisV says:

I'd like to do a full backup over the cloud and also sync my game data too.

Sure I'm in

scabbard says:

I need to backup everything I'm a flashaholic.

Being a flashaholic on my nexus7 and galaxy nexus back ups are a must

P-Men says:

God, I'd be forever in your debt if I win this.
I'm currently using Carbon, and a few days ago I backed up my Temple Run 2 data to my Dropbox account and my internal storage. Couple days later, I installed a new rom and found out the hard way that my internal storage's backup didn't work(there was a bug on the app that is now fixed), and my only option is to buy the app to recover from Dropbox (have to be a premium owner to recover from cloud).

I've stopped playing Temple Run 2 altogether because of this. I had too much progress there to start again. I almost bought the app because of this.

I'd use it for everything(I like to flash different ROMs alot), but mainly games between my phone and tablet.

deltatko says:

I would love to be able to replace titanium for when I flash roms

I need it to sync my saved game data. I have a Nexus 4 and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9. I am constantly getting further along on my tablet then having to play catch up on the phone.

teacherhax says:

I need to back up my top secret password to the NORAD nuclear launch codes, my winning lotto numbers, and 3 GB of nude photos of your sister. It would really help if I had a Carbon Pro account so I don't have to do it all by hand...

This would be excellent for backing all my preferences to the cloud.

On my tablet, I am way in level in Temple Run. But when I go back to my phone, I am just starting. Would it be nice if those are sync? (Not the starting part but obviously where I have already invested a lot of coins in Temple Run)

Syed Salleh says:

I would like to backup my application from top to bottom with the auwsome power of the cloud, that could be done automatically with the premium account which I WISHED TO GET . Some of the application include games, working applications, social application, entertainment application, games and more more more games.

It be a pretty huge help when ever I flash custom firmware, as all the aps can be recovered with just a click.

The power of carbon cloud rules!

coolbreeze says:

Would love to be able to back up game data.

hi my name is hamad from saudi arab...i want to buck up my apps for my new nexus 4

redball says:

I want one. :-)

simon.ponder says:

I need a key so that when I need to back up my applications as I move to my next developer phone, it is easy, much like another great backup application we have all come to love. The great perk with this one is that no root is needed. Maybe Google will take the application and fold it into the AOSP tree, who knows. Koush is a great developer. From a fellow developer, I would like to say, Great Job, keep up the good work, and give me m a key.

Oh yea, see you at IO 2013.

sbcbdn says:

All of it, duh.

baldypal says:

I need Carbon for all reasons a rooted user needs backups. But more importantly to share my Granny Smith progress from Nexus 7 to Galaxy Nexus and back again. Its easier to play on the N7 at home but not at work.

rjenkin41 says:

Apps! And some pics

ashraff_tech says:

I need backup my whole phone (apps and pictures especially) :)

davidk365 says:

I've been thinking about this for a while. Why doesn't Google/Android have something like this built in because switching between Android phones can be a hassle.
This is great for backing up apps and their data that doesn't require root.
Now people can switch phones without worrying about their game progress being lost, or having to re-setup everything for an app.

<3 Koush

damianza says:

When changing ROMS or factory resetting back up is a crucial role for Android devices. Until Carbon there has been no real way to backup App data without root.I use the free edition of Carbon and find it is great. A free version of the Premium edition would make me SMILE!

Ekreed says:

I'd like to try this out. The regular edition seems fine, but I think cloud syncing between devices is the big feature.

I have a ton of applications and the one my soul loves(My wife :) ) loves playing some games on it and I know that if I am able to save everything, I'll be able to surprise her when everything gets transferred to a new android device in the near future! Thank you for your awesome contests!

I need to backup everything. I change phones WAY too often. I have a problem. I feel great shame. Please help me.

Dshoe#AC says:

I develop my own personal custom ROM and do data wipes frequently. Being able to schedule backups into different categories of apps would help me tremendously, I've lost too many Battleheart saves!!

random_robbi says:

It would be great to not have to constantly remember to backup my Titanium Backup folder and be able to access it on any of my other devices.

You can never have too many backups when dealing with your personal data.

I think the android to android backup is the best part. I can sync my game saves between devices so I never have to replay an angry birds level again!!!

I need to back up my photos, primarily. But backing up everything would certainly make upgrading ROMs easier!

Longtime iphone user turned android user here. Used my iphone for 5 years, dumped big blue for and reluctantly got my first android (Samsung Galaxy Nexus). That was about a month ago.

Now I'm happily flashing nightly updates for Cyanogenmod 10.1. Would LOVE a free promo code to what sounds like an EXCELLENT backup utility.

I need cloud backup space, since my N4 doesn't have room for all of the backups I'd like to keep handy.

I had recorded a voice mail my Aunt had left me for my birthday with the voice recorder app.I ended up having to do a factory reset while trouble shooting with verizon and lost it.I wish I would have had a way to have backed it up.She passed away from cancer a few months ago and I had been saving that message so I could hear her voice when I missed her.

twilite2000 says:

Thanks Jerry for your quick reply. You guys are awesome.

Since I've lost everything once before and know I've never been able to replace it all especially the pictures of my family I would have to say I would backup everything. Good luck everybody.

Obsession says:

I would love to back up my apps between flashing roms. :)

whoisjlk says:

I want a backup solution for devices that are not rooted. Also any competition is great for the user not on titanium. thanks!

tazman13 says:

A carbon unlock key would be great to help me backup all of my texts, photos and apps.

Would love to have a reliable safe way to backup and restore my apps pictures and videos when installing various roms on my galaxy nexus which has issues with the internal storage wiping the device means losing everything unlike other phones where the pictures stay on a micro sd card safe from a data wipe.

boylert says:

I have an unlocked Verizon Galaxy Nexus and was trying to avoid rooting because of instability with my OG Droid after rooting. After months of frustration and watching every other carrier version pass me by, i have been exceedingly frustrated and ready to take the plunge and flash a custom ROM. The only thing holding me back is the hassle of losing all of my settings and data. Carbon seems like the perfect solution! Please pick me!

MajorTankz says:

All my news, music streaming, and task/schedule apps would be backed up with carbon.

All of the things I forgot to backup BEFORE switching to a new ROM. :/

I need one! I'm always switching phones and it'd be so much easier if things would just backup!

Marvelous app! I think it woud be marvelous for me to being able to backup my work important data and notes, apps of course and being able to flash without worries of losing or reinstalling everything or dealing with complicated solutions. :D

jimjr says:

I have lots of data to back up... files and apps and settings.

GUHoya94 says:

I would love to back up the pictures I take off Harry and if I decide to start angry birds again from scratch.

backing up my data and syncing between devices is crucial, as i am an IT tech and having multiple devices with me is pretty much the norm. so getting things backed up and synced in a neat and organized way (such as all apps for remote support, etc) will be a HUGE help.

oh, im a Nexus user BTW, Galaxy and N7.

I would love have to my games' app data backed up!

tookie88 says:

I want to back up all my app data, as I flash new ROMs often to try them out :)

My pics of my twins would be the first thing I would back up.

ebnight says:

I'd like one :-D. I love Carbon!

It would make switching ROMs infinitely easier.

I'd love to have an unlock code so i can store my data in on a white puffy thing ;)

dabaum says:

I would use this like crazy. I just installed the free version because of AC's review just a couple of days ago and look forward to trying it out when I get home. Thanks AC.

JimelJ says:

i was just looking at this today pick me !

Stocklone says:

I will of course use it to backup my apps between messing around with custom ROMs. I already got my Note II running JellyBomb and I've only had it for 5 days. The cloud storage will come in super duper handy since I just got 50GB for free with DropBox for two years because of the Note II.

Even if I don't win, I'm really excited about Carbon. TBPro and Nandroid backups are great for power users, but they aren't something your average person can use easily. I haven't been able to recommend an 'average person' backup tool for all the people I switched over to Android over the past 3 years. But now I do! Finally, Apple users can quit rubbing iCloud in my face because I will have Carbon Premium. Hopefully.

I would like to back up all of my apps and media files

mandar_h says:

Give me one.

chadmd23 says:

I'm getting a warranty replacement tomorrow for my N4, I'd really like to make a backup of everything before I switch to my new one.

Awesome. I want one

I need to back up everything and the full features of this app are awesome for switching between devices. Please pick me.

rohail6 says:

I have like 100 apps and I don't wanna root cause I'm waiting for 4.1.2 for T889V and I would exceptionally appreciate this.

enyce9 says:

backup everything

Warrenisit says:

My phone (EVO 4G LTE) has basically become my computer so to be able to back up all my documents, pictures, videos, apps, etc to one place would be really awesome. Breaking my phone or having it "brick" would totally suck without having everything backed up.

I'm new to the Android world and one thing i've been looking for is the simplicity of Carbon. Back ups on the cloud is what i've been looking for and they done it in the way it should be done. Awesome app... Now i just need the full version to take the full advantage of it!
