One of the most frustrating experiences for a smart phone user is having a well organised contact list list fall into chaos and disrepair upon purchasing a new device or having to do a soft reset. Of course, smart phones these days sync contacts to the cloud, making restoring the contacts easy enough, but what is lost is the hard work that you put into arranging those contacts.
Whether it be call logs, contact groups or joined contacts, on setting up or restoring a new phone these are all lost - possibly forcing you to start from scratch! Well, that was until now. With Total Backup, developer Adrian-Costin Tundrea has created a simplistic and effortless way to protect your hard work and to keep your contacts backed up and protected.
This app could not be simpler. Upon loading you are presented with a simple screen where you can choose what to backup, whether it be your call logs, contact groups or contact joins. In the settings of the app, you can quickly select where to store a backup (including external SD card support), as well as compression levels, to make the file as space efficient as possible.
In addition to this basic level of settings, more advanced users can enable scheduled backups, allowing the user to triggers days of the weeks and time when a backup will run. Schedule your backups regularly, and make backups to Dropbox or Google Drive and you can guarantee the protection of your contact information.
So once files are backup up, the real question becomes how easy is it to restore? In short, it could not be more simple. Simply tap the 'restore' tab and a list of all your backups will be presented. Tap the data-sets you want to restore and you are done! It could not be easier.
Finally, Total Backup looks fantastic. It features the latest Google design settings, making it not just simple to use, but also impressive to look at. Honestly - you would think this is almost a first party feature - it works so seamlessly!
All in all, this is a great Android app, well worth checking out. Have a read of the developer's description below then download!
In the words of the developer:
In a nutshell...
Total Backup offers the ability to backup and restore user contact joins, contact groups and call log with the touch of a button. Never lose your ordered contact list and groups when deleting accounts, reseting or migrating to a new device. Save and restore your call log fast and without hassle.
What is it good for?
Have you spent countless hours managing your contacts? Grouping or joining all those users with different names for each account took forever? And have you ever reseted or migrated to a new device? Lost all those groups or joins? How about your precious call logs? Bring order to chaos right now! Keep restore points updated using scheduled daily, weekly or monthly backups and compress/decompress, delete or share them as you want. You can easily send them by email or bluetooth and restore all that data on other devices. You can even upload them directly to Google Drive or Dropbox account (if you have their applications installed). And if you need extra security you can always choose to encrypt restore points with the AES algorithm.
Here is a list of features Total Backup offers for free:
- backup contact joins, groups (for most of your accounts) and call log
- restore all contact joins, groups and call log at any time
- save restore points on internal memory or on external storage and easily manage them
- automatic scheduled backups with customizable trigger (daily, weekly or monthly) and limit
- support for zip compression/decompression of restore points (can reduce memory usage with over 90% in some cases)
- support for restore point encryption by password (using AES algorithm)
- easy sharing of restore points by email, bluetooth or any other application that supports zip file format
- upload restore points to Google Drive or Dropbox (requires their own applications installed)
(developers features continued...)
If you want an ad-free user interface, extra features (like advanced compression, encryption and power saving settings) and support future development you can always buy the Premium features with a one-time fee of only 1.5$ (depending on your region).

Ondigo Mobile CRM
There are quite a number of CRM applications available for Android devices from Google Play, but they do not hit that perfect level of features and simplicity as effectively as Ondigo Mobile CRM. More importantly, the developers have tried to make the app reflect their vision as much as possible - creating a CRM that is powerful as well as easy to work with. From my brief time using the app, it is quite apparent that they pulled it off. Ondigo Mobile CRM is easy to recommendation to anyone looking for a way to streamline their customer management.
Check out the video above and the feature list in the video below - sure this may be a mobile application but no corners have been cut. This is absolutely a fully fledged CRM with capabilities equivalent to what you would find on many desktop systems. Best of all though, Ondigo is not only feature packed, but also many times easier to use - being beautifully designed and perfect for any small business owner/sales person who would like to stay on top of his sales flow/customers/contacts and make more money - not having to worry about complex software and databases!
On top of all that, Ondigo is excellent for those managers or business owners who want to keep track of how things are going while away from the office. Traveling abroad, late to work, working from home - all are situations where Ondigo will allow you to stay on top of your CRM.
After booting up the app, the app will present you with a simple login screen (which I accomplished using my google account in one simple tap!). From there calendars are automatically imported, allowing you to quickly glance at important and upcoming events. The second great feature is the ability to attach notes and records to contact user names. Best of all, these will automatically appear when a call is made. No more having to scrawl addresses on the back of a notepad - instead sync Ondigo on your phone or tablet and you will have a perfect solution, keeping both your contacts and their information in a single location.
Finally, the app features a 'Reports' tab, allowing you to easily keep track on how sales are progressing in a particular day, how many calls have been received, who needs to be called back, etc. These features are just the beginning - there are plenty more powerful features hidden below the surface that any user of the app will quickly come to appreciate. Best of all, it looks great and runs very smoothly. This has obviously been programmed with care and attention to detail - not simply thrown together!
All in all, this is a great mobile app - strongly recommended for anyone looking to simplify their CRM needs!
