Koush’s Carbon backup application received an update today, the most notable change probably being its name. Carbon is now called Helium, as there was a trademark issue with “Carbon.” Either way, it’s still the same application, just a new name.
According to the man himself, Koush just got done implementing the #1 requested feature for Carbon, SMS backup and restore. Hip hip hooray. As a bonus, he states that it won’t simply just replace all of your current messages either, but nicely places them alongside already existing messages.
Carbon for Twitter is finally available on Android. Yes, on Super Bowl Sunday, the longest delayed Twitter app in history has been released to Google Play – and it’s free. After a few minutes with it, I can easily say that this is one of the better designed apps we have seen. It’s ultra fast, utilizes gestures for navigation, and includes almost all of the features I look for in a Twitter app. Is it better than Falcon Pro, you ask? I’ll let you decide that.
This morning, Koush’s Carbon app is now out of beta and available in Google Play. It seems that testing went very well and everything was ready for the prime time. With Carbon, users root and non-root can backup their apps and app data to several different places for safe keeping, including the cloud. It’s perfect for people like me who are looking for a third party means of transferring data between devices.
This morning, Koush released an updated version of Carbon, his backup app that has been making the rounds and receiving a lot of great attention. In this update, he has allowed non-rooted users to get into the game, with the help of a desktop application that is easily installed on your computer. With this app, every Android user (rooted and non-rooted) can backup apps and app data easily and safely.
Koush released a new version of his cloud app syncing app called Carbon, this morning. In the new build, which is still root-only, you can now backup to Dropbox, group apps into batches (and save those same groups for later), “select all” apps, and tell Carbon to backup app data only, rather than the entire .apk.
He says there will be one more beta release that will be the non-root or “rootless” version before going to market.
