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.

Ozius says:

Just for backup my "under development" apps data and game progress data!!

I'd backup everything. I'm commenting only because the Pro version will let me backup to Google Drive.

muddyjch says:

Pick me

sats0101 says:

I like to flash new ROMs and MODs but since my S2 is equipped with THE SUPER BRICK BUG, I am very much skeptical to use Nandroid Backup and all. So I'd prefer to back up the data for all the app esp when my phone is not rooted. (Need to unroot the phone whenever I had to visit Samsung Customer care;))

mikedez says:

Hope I'm not to late. I definitely want one for backing up my game saves and such between rom updates.

Oh man, is the contest still open?
I hope so, I really need to backup some games before I switch to a new phone..

Haviing Carbon Pro would make it a really sweet deal to switch over!

KarDan1111 says:

I recently bought a new nexus.It's my first android device and I really have much fun with it after owning an iPhone for almost 3 years. My only gripe is, that I have a constant fear of losing my data and pictures. Since I am not that tech savvy,I am not familiar with the new cloud services.a convenient method of backing up my data sure sounds like a relief. Sorry for the typos...I'm from Germany :) good luck y'all

nsumner says:

I back up app data (not apps)

I have My Backup Pro (biggest waste ever), and Titanium (well worth the price). Would be interesting to see how this compares...

uploadpf says:

More simple than Titanium! I would love one free copy :)

aesopn says:

I need to back up my game save

stjom says:

I own several android devices. Depending on the availability (whether physically, battery-related or whatnot), I need to have the same settings setup for my applications and games -- ESPECIALLY GAMES. I want to be able to pickup where I last left off from a different device towards with what I'm currently holding. With regards with applications, tweaking different applications for different devices is always a pain. That's why "setup once and apply to all devices" via carbon backup really saves my day.

shavedbg says:

i want a code to back up all my data - music, pictures, games, SMS, etc. thank in advance! :-)

Weishaupt says:

I'd especially like to backup all the apps configuration as I spend quite some time setting up a device.

A Backup of all my photos would be nice, too.

Hi, I'd really need to use Carbon because I've been using the same phone for 2 years and I'd lose my mind if I lost all the family and friend pictures I have,the crucial contacts stored that make my freelance career possible and the tiny, numerous customizations I've made to my various screens,widgets,games and apps.

Doug Nichols says:

This is great for backing up the pics and music I have on my phone and the documents I have on my tablet.

Cranky Bear says:

I've been putting custom ROMs on my phone, and get sick of having to start from scratch with each new ROM and especially each new phone. I know, there are solutions out there and I need to boost my knowledge, but this would take me there in one shot!

My pictures and videos are backed up to Google+, but of course my data is not. I need my data and settigns backed up whenever I install a new rom or get a new phone.

bentsh says:

I just got a replacement phone and there is no good way to transfer my data over. I can't root because I don't want them to find out when I send the phone back, so this is my only option :/ Come on Google, get with the program!

My Angry Birds data. I can't restart Angry Birds now! I have 68 hours invested...

I mean... my email and other important things.

jcsugrue says:

I'd like one. I don't really have much that I NEED to back up, except maybe Symantec VIP Access. I just want something a little more unified. Right now, I back up pics to picasa, back up some stuff to Dropbox, and use titanium backup on the rest. Android really is a cluster of fun when it comes to backing up. I'm hoping Carbon makes it a little easier.

tyoac says:

backup the apps is fine but a backup in the cloud would be even nicer!

Game saves, launcher settings, alarm clock settings... backup them all!

Photos and Documents

I really need to factory reset my tablet. The jelly bean update killed my battery life. I need Carbon Backup to put my data on Dropbox so I can get the data back after the reset.

The premium code would help with doing that!!!!!

Need to backup the all important password management, notes, and lists data.

I would love one. Thanks

NeoGenesisX says:

As a student, I need to back up my workfiles, but it's a real pain in the butt to keep the files sync'd across multiple cloud savers. I use Google Drive primarily, but a lot of other people use dropbox, which makes it a real pain. If I had the premium, I'd just toss it there to drop box and let Google Drive pull it off as normal and now I got 2 backup copies ^_^

scampi says:

All the app data and game progress.

yes please

chendriks27 says:

ivrimon says:

I'd love to be able to sync my apps between my phone and tablet, and having backup of apps which take a lot of setting up would be a great time saver.

Chuckl says:

Codes please. I need some backup love

gizak says:

Well, obviously saved game data, but for me it would be mainly for transferring specific complex custom app data between phone and tablet via the cloud as an automated process.

Photos, videos, contacts, apps settings.

I'm also one of those guys that would love to root my devices, but I'm too lazy to learn and to scared to give it a shot. Carbon would make a nice addition to my Android Library of apps because I'm long over due for a full system restore. Thanks!

Backing up games is a must. im actually switching from a Sprint Gnex to a Nexus 4 so having one of those codes would be heavenly.

Jym Brittain says:

I'd back up my entire device

MSchac says:

As an Android user who has not rooted (yet), Carbon is the only solution I know of that can do a FULL back-up including all application data. I'm very impressed so far. I would love to win the one of the free keys to the full version. Please!?

ToBHo says:

Perfect to backup all my Data when switching between roms :)

P4Peter says:

I have almost all my data in the cloud, but that requires logging into each app separately. I would love to be able to back up and restore all my accounts (email, Facebook, Amazon, Dropbox, SkyDrive, Pandora, Redbox, etc).

AkshatNz says:

I need it to back up data between ROMS plus the 4000+ photos from my week long, big fat Indian wedding!

ferddy says:

Well I got 50 GB of dropdox with my Note 2 so I guess I'll back up my videos, pictures and music.

All my apps so I can do an ICS upgrade

Shreyas13 says:

I definitely would love this to back up my data and photos. Losing all the data that you have on your phone ends up being more and more devastating without cloud services.

A l i says:

I want to backup my games data.

srgonu says:

I have two phones and I want similar app data on both the phones so that I don't have to spend time customizing and copying my stuff. I hope I can win in this contest and get the app for free.

Flamenova says:

Carbon unlock codes this way please :)

PR1DE says:

Would love to win one! :) This would be THE backup tool for everything!

Game data between a One X, Transformer Prime, and my shiny new Nexus 4.
And all my apps for my general crackflashing needs :)

djchru says:

What don't I need to backup?! I have a romming addiction, please help!!!

sheanzyy says:

I need it to backup my life..... oh and because I love Carbon and AC!

Kvoth says:

EDIT: Pls disregard, thought my last one disappeared but it didn't =/

pinny says:

Would love a code. I keep so much info on my android in HandBase.

I need this because I'm constantly flashing ROMs and having to set up 60+ apps is becoming a burden. I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

WeeJavaDude says:

I would love one to backup before I move to cm10

prinzhernan says:

I'd like a license please. This would be so useful backing up game data whenever I do my 3 month phone wipe.

jhnstn00 says:

Works well backing up to my pc.

bravada says:

Need this app before I send my SG3 in for warranty repair.

sinc39 says:

I would like one that way I can back up all my most treasured games data, plus pictures

I would like to use it for syncing all my data

LV23 says:

I'm in!

I think this contest may be over but I'm not to sure since I didn't see any winners posted. So, just in case it's not over, I'd certainly love to win!!

HarrisHakim says:

I want to ditch Titanium Backup (I bought the unlock/pro key) once and for all. spending another $5+ dollar for other backup app is not acceptable for me. It'd be cool if I can get this new carbon app unlock key for free, because it looks extremely sexy and easy to use. Titanium Backup is extremely bloated with many options and doesn't follow holo guideline properly. If I get this unlock key, I'll use it to make a scheduled backup of all my apps so that I can sync between my nexus 7 and galaxy s3. *crossing fingers*

rotibot says:

I'd like to backup Carbon for Twitter :)

Data, games and office related documents and emails

dwd3885 says:

were the winners ever announced?

Joe Bechely says:

count me in!

pushpak1990 says:

I have a galaxy nexus, nexus one, galaxy s, nexus 7 and soon, a nexus 4. and i want to keep all my devices in sync and titanium backup wont cut it.

evostudios says:

According to the rules the contest ended, but I haven't seen any winners announced so I might as well try!

I would backup EVERYTHING to DropBox!

Kris Viklund says:

The irreplaceable memories. Pics of my Family, Friends and 3 puppies

ditosoft says:

Hoooo is all I need!... the best way to recover my data between Nighty's!!
My music (lot!!!), pictures and program's!.. and of course my config!

ejatds says:

i'd like to backup all my game data

drummerweed says:

Would love to try the pro version, love the free one. Although I never get picked for these things I might as well express my love of a good app when I see one.

billdotmu says:

I'm planning to buy a new phone this month. That is all.

chatboysam says:

When I did a factory reset for my phone and shifted from old phone to a new one, I not only lost settings for all my apps that were done in a span of number of months reflecting my habits, but also the progress of games I have been playing and spent hours reaching a certain level of progress. With Carbon, I can fix all of that when I move from one phone to another or do a factory reset. No more worries when change happens. Thank you Carbon!!

xxjoshuaaxx says:

I'd definitely like one of these. I love the idea of cloud storage and my Nexus 4 is only 8 gigs. Online backups make more sense to back up my apps. Especially for a flashaholic like me. x)

MC_A_DOT says:

I need to backup my music, photos, games, invoices...i just NEED IT...for work and entertainment. Oh and my life lol #Cheers

dwd3885 says:
