Novosoft Releases Handy Backup for Android v. 1.3 Bundled with Online Backup Service

December 8, 2009

Novosoft releases a new version of Handy Backup for Android, a data backup tool for Android-powered smartphones, now with support for Online backup.

Novosoft, an international IT-consulting and software development company, today announced the release of a new 1.3 version of Handy Backup for Android. Now users of the utility can back up their phones to a secure online storage located in San Diego, California.

"We launched our online backup service in the end of 2005, to let users of PC version of Handy Backup store files remotely and always be able to access them," said Alexander Prichalov, head of Novosoft Development Department. "In recent years, we saw a growing demand for online backup solutions, and we are happy to have integrated our service into Handy Backup for Android."

The release of the current update is the first Novosoft's step to monetize the program: to a certain extent it follows a pricing model of Handy Backup for PC, where a low cost software can be upgraded with paid options. Handy Backup for Android remains free of charge, but the use of a new Online Backup option requires the user to have a paid account at Novosoft Online Backup service.

"Further development of Handy Backup for Android will be focused on a scheduling engine and improvements to the utility's user interface," said Mr. Prichalov. "Also, we are planning to add certain security enhancements, e.g. add SFTP and FTPS servers to the list of supported backup destinations."

Handy Backup for Android is a free tool that can be downloaded directly on your phone from the Android Market.
