Perform Android backups without the requirement of root

A review of Helium by Tina de Pierre

Helium is an interesting Android tool which allows you to create backups of your phone's data without the requirement of having your device rooted.

Formerly known as Carbon Desktop, Helium creates backups of cell phone settings (like WiFi and User Dictionary), messaging (SMS and MMS) and your installed apps.

One cool thing about the Helium application is that it can backup your data to both your hard drive and your Google Drive. Everything is done with the Android app.

Restoring apps can be a quick and painless operation and doesn't take very much time. Once again, everything is done with the Android app so the Windows counterpart just provides access to disk space.

In the end, Helium is a useful program which gives you the opportunity to backup messages and apps without having to void your warranty by rooting.

Helium can transfer files between phone and PC, synchronize with the cloud and perform backup operations.
