Uppidy Saves Your Text Messages to the Cloud for Safe Keeping


Folks who are not taking advantage of Google Voice’s feature of saving messages to the cloud, may want to take a look at Uppidy. If you want to make sure you never lose an important text message or special picture you have received ever again, then check out the short video. The service automatically saves all of your messages to the cloud, then makes them available from any device, including your PC, from anywhere you are. It sounds perfect for the people who are constantly flashing new ROMs or getting new phones.

Sign up here.

Cheers Curtis!

  • I use “Backup to GMail” for this. It doesn’t (yet) support MMS backups, but I don’t care too much about that. Since I’ve used it, it’s been very easy to port my SMS messages (and call log, by the way) from my old phone to my new phone (and across ROM installs, by the way). And I can review my messages and call logs via Gmail on my non-mobile devices. Very helpful.

  • i personally just use titanium backup on my msg prefs and all my mms sms go from build to build with me. no loss of data and i kick backups onto dropbox and box and i dont worry one bit about lost msgs. Gnex 4.03 codename android1.55

  • You want me to create account in one more website. No, thanks. Coming to know about this app only pushed me to sms backup+. And it is working like a charm on my GNex.

  • You want me create another account in yet another website….!!! No, thanks. All this app did was prod me to install sms backup+ and it is working fine on my GNex.

  • MrWicket

    there are quite a few apps (on android at least) that do this. one actually emails you them as a backup where as others backup to a file on your phone. cool idea I guess but not for me.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Signed up on the site, but when I downloaded/installed the app on my Galaxy Nexus, all it does is give me a network error when launching it each time. For shame!

  • Thanks for the coverage here and yes we think its perfect as well, no bias of course!  Also remember that you can perform a full backup by hitting the “menu” button on your droid and then selecting “back-up”.  Set the timer and go right back to texting.

      As many have reported, great concept but not working on Galaxy Nexus. Network error

      • Its being fixed…sorry about that.  Its working on all other android devices.  Stay tuned and thanks for your patience.

        • Aziz Joudi

          Thank you.

    SMS Backup+ already does that free with no account creation necessary. Backs up texts to Gmail and phone calls to Google Calendar

  • my best friend’s ex-wife makes $60 every ħour on the computer. She has been out of á job for five months but last month her ćheck was $16010 just working on the computer for a fěw hours. Go to this web site and read ṁore : LazyCash5.Com

    Doesn’t work on droid bionic…idiotic

  • Liderc

    I don’t think I want another way for people to see my texts.  The phone companies already keep records of our texts, you can have them printed out from day 1 if you’re the owner of the account or the police.

  • This app does not work on galaxy Nexus, hopefully will be soon though.

  • Geoff

    i just use titanium backup to backup sms/mms/etc..

    there’s a simple tutorial that allows you to create a filter that you can apply to a schedule in titanium backup which will backup all texts. Then you can sync to dropbox occasionally and you’re good to go. Also, the restore is about a minute compared to apps like MyBackup Pro that take almost an hour to restore 5k texts (even when saved locally).

    Works on my Gnex just fine, though I’m running AOKP (ver M2)

    • Ryan

       brain farted, SMS Backup+ does that is..

  • 12Playy

    whats the difference between this and mysms.com

  • Droidzilla

    Google Voice. That is all.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Awesome…signing up right this very second.

  • Stalker Central 

  • I’m confused about the gvoice backup to cloud mentioned as well…Does it back up your regular messages too if you want to?  This would be great, but I don’t see a way to do it, I hardly ever use my gvoice text message service.

  • Sean Rowe

    Do you have to recieve texts through your GV number to backup sms with GV? I don’t use my GV number at all, just use it for Voicemail…

  • Dshudson

    that’s about the last thing I want.. my texts saved someplace else, so when I delete them from my phone, they can be accessed again.. no thanks. 

    • Butters619

      That is exactly what I was thinking.

    • Liderc

      Sadly the phone companies keep all of our texts anyways.  

  • Firelight

    I’ve been happiest with CrossTXT. DeskSMS was overloading my GTalk and became cumbersome. CrossTXT works in my browser & has rudimentary backup by its nature so it’s a winner for me.

  • Firelight

    Not working on my GNex. Getting “Application Error: Network Error”.

    Uninstalled twice with no joy.

  • Sp4rxx

    Based on the comments, guess I’m glad I don’t own a Gnex! hehe

  • wastry

    Anthony Weiner does not approve of this service

  • Brian Hendricks

    i use SMS Backup Plus and it syncs right to my gmail in the background. most times i forget its there, but my messages and pics, vids, or audio get backed up just the same.

  • Backup to Gmail does this and makes the texts available for easy searching by label.

  • gbenj

    +1 for SMS backup+ Especially considering it isnt working on Gnex 4.0

  • I kid you not I had a idea for an app like this a couple months ago, but I don’t have the time or resources to develop apps quickly. It would have been a replacement messaging app, utilizing the native messaging system API, but maintaining a database stored and searchable online as well.

    On a side note, I have also been using SMS Backup+ for a long while now. I used to backup & restore my entire message database before and after flashing, but that took forever, and SMS Backup+ allows me to actually select how many I restore, making what’s in my inbox more relevant.

  • No worky on the Gnex 🙁

  • Franz

    If you are running ICS (Running ICS CM9 Nightly on the Motorola BIONIC) you might get this error: 
    A network error occurred. (File://andriod-asset/www/author.html#sign-up-page)So far can’t get a way around it…

  • The NAME though… {{o_0}}

    This doesn’t work on the Galaxy Nexus for some reason.

      or Brett Favre, I’m sure.

  • RedPandaAlex

    SMS Backup+ has been doing something similar for a while. It puts your text messages into a Gmail label.

    • Carlos

      Yep, thats what I use and I send the file to me via email. No one gets to see it.

    • I was going to say the same thing. Granted, this service probably has a few extra features, but I don’t see any obvious ones at first glance.

    • IanGillespie

      I wish that app worked on the Gnex.  Used to love it on my Incredible

      • It does work on the Galaxy Nexus. I use it without a problem.

        • IanGillespie

          That’s weird every time I try and set it up the app crashes trying to do the initial backup

          • Bear831

            That was probably before they added ics support as I originally had the same issue. Works perfectly now though.

        • Bob

          I use another program called VeryAndroid SMS Backup for my Samsung Galaxy S2. It can transfer messages to my computer with ease via usb connection. Works great.

      • user01

        It does work on the galaxy nexus.  no doubt about that at all

    • Tim Swann

      I am not a fan of Gmail labels and I just use another backup app, but having the msgs accessible anywhere is appealing

      • John

        Gmail labels > *
