    "Backup to the future"

    Concerned about what might happen to all your apps and data should your Android ever bite the dust? Helium is your syncing and backup solution. No need for rooting, either - Helium works on any Android device.

    Run Helium on your desktop and connect your Android to your computer to give the app the leeway it needs to work its magic. You'll be able to select whether you want to backup to the cloud or to your SD card. You can also sync your data with any of your other Android devices, regardless of whether they're on the same network. Schedule regular backups, and rest easy that your data is safe and sound.

    Doesn't work for me. Desktop app just says "Waiting for device" and the android app claims I'm in MTP mode when I'm really in PTP mode.

    Doesn't detect root on Android 6. Even rooted, you must still connect the device to a computer, every single boot, in order to use this app.
