As phone and SD card storage space continues to expand, the limited (cost-effective) options to backup your device remain few and far between (Apple I’m looking at you, 128 GB iPhone 6 and 10 gb free iCloud, yea no thanks).

Backup your device contacts, photos, videos, calendar events on iOS, in addition, you can backup SMS, call logs and apps, on android – in a single touch!
