Note: On newer phones with inbuilt storage the default backup location will probably be the internal storage card and not the external. This is because the phone reports the storage that way. If you intend to do a factory reset on the phone, please make sure you save/email a copy of the backup outside the phone before doing the reset.

Recently changed in this version:
- Added an alternate Restore method as a workaround for Restore problems on some devices. The app will prompt the user to try the alternate way when the restore fails. It can be manually switched on from Preferences as well. The alternate Restore may result in the Phone App crashing, pressing OK on the message will restart the app. After that Resume Restore.
- Opening the app after a failed Restore will prompt to Resume Restore.
- More bug fixes.
