Koush’s Carbon Backup now out of Beta and Available in the Play Store
Koush Dutta, collector of yachts and developer behind ClockworkMod, has moved his new project, Carbon – App Sync and Backup, out of beta and into the Play store.
Carbon is a backup app that allows user to backup their apps and data to SD or cloud storage. One of the major advantages of Koush’s Carbon is that it can be used with or without root.
Carbon comes in a basic free version which is ad-supported, however, users can upgrade to a Premium version by purchasing the license key via the Premium app in the Play store.
The Premium version costs $4.99 and offers everything the free version does along with:
- No Ads
- Android to Android app sync
- Automatic Backup schedules (coming soon!)
- Cloud backup and restore
* Google Drive
The app works for both rooted and non-rooted users, with non-rooted users required to download an accompanying desktop client.
Koush also notes the app is NOT available to Motorola devices thanks to a bug that seems to break Android’s backup mechanism. Other than that, you’re free to download it and give it a try.
