Alliance, OH, December 10, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Novosoft, one of the leading providers of data backup solutions worldwide, today announced the release of a new 1.3 version of Handy Backup for Android. Now users of the utility can take advantage of the Online Backup option and back up phone's data to a secure online storage system provided by Novosoft.
"We launched our Remote Backup Service in October, 2005, and the reaction of users of Handy Backup for PC was very positive," said Alexander Prichalov, head of Novosoft Development Department. "Today we are happy to come up with a similar solution for Handy Backup for Android, and we hope that users will find the new feature useful and advantageous."
The release of the current update is the first Novosoft's attempt to monetize the application: to an extent it resembles Handy Backup for PC which is a low-cost utility upgradable with paid add-ons. 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 Remote Backup service.
"Further development of Handy Backup for Android will be focused on increasing security and ease of use," said Mr. Prichalov. "In the upcoming releases we are planning to add support for SFTP and FTPS protocols, as well as a separate encryption engine, to let the users feel even safer about their data."
Handy Backup for Android is distributed as a freeware and can be downloaded directly on your phone from the Android Market.
