Cloud backup solutions, like Google Photos and Dropbox, are great for making your photos taken on the phone available on all your devices. But, when you start thinking how important some of your photos are, you may think again if it’s a good idea to rely solely on a cloud service for all those precious memories. And this is a reason why we are experimenting with a new feature in AirDroid called Backup.
Backup allows you to backup all the photos in your camera album on the phone to your computer via local network. It’s safe, fast and works automatically.
All photo backups are transferred directly through your local network and saved to your own computer. No photo will pass through our servers. You don’t have to worry about someone hacking into your cloud backup account and steal all your photos anymore.
Everything happens on your local network so it’s really fast and stable. The network will no longer be the bottleneck of backup speed.
Few people would remember doing backups when there are new photos. So, to make the backup feature really work, we added an automatic backup option. With automatic backup option on, AirDroid will start backup your new photos automatically when the phone battery level is higher than 40%. To save battery, you can also turn on the option of “Only when charging”, to start backup only when the phone is being charged.
To start using the backup feature, you’ll need to have desktop client v3.3.1 and Android client v3.2.1 installed. The latest release is being gradually rolled out. Cannot wait? You can download the APK now from our website: www.airdroid.com.
We hope you enjoy this new feature, and if you have any feedback please feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
