Backup settings

I've seen this before but, it would be great to have the ability to backup your Textra settings and customization. It's a hassle to have to do that each time.

    This should be at the number 1 spot in the priority list. Imagine the pain of re-creating everything, every settings. Ugh I just went through all of that last last week and I hope the next time I'll reformat my phone or move to a a new one, it could be as smooth as restoring a backup.

    Well, this is official Textra uservoice. Could any1 of u guys please telk us if it's planned or not?? I changed my phone and if I even try to imagibe the PAIN with setting it all up again I would rather look somewhere else. That would be really sad, I LOVE Textra, use it for a few years already!

    Just transferred all my data to a new phone. Except for Textra. I'm tired of recreating all my settings over and over. I'm out

    Ditto. Come on Textra. No brainer. What excuses are there not to have this available??? I'm a Pro user.

    Yes, add me to this list. If works be a great addition. I'm a paid user, at it to the paid version, this week get more people to buy it too!

    well...I'm glad I choose to have ads instead of paying for this app. I need to do a factory reset now and it seems I'm going to lose all my settings. Not sure if it will be my sms app after the restore

    Already posted about this on another topic line. It's a huge factor that has been overlooked!

    Google can back up the data for free, it's not hard to integrate for developers. Why isn't this the standard??

  • David commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It would be especially awesome if they made the app data backup with Google's built-in backup&restore feature so that you could have all your settings as soon as you install the app.

    The fact that there are 762 votes for various versions of this suggestion shows how much people want it. Even just because you constantly have to clear data when something goes wrong in the app and all hope seems disappear. I don't understand why this hasn't been done as it can't be that difficult. A very basic pet planner app only downloaded by about 1000 people added it in so I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard for Textra. I'm even a pro user so I know they have the money to implement the two minute change.

    A must have basic feature now included in most apps, especially given all customization features of Textra. Something simple as SD card or a Google drive cloud service or Dropbox. Hours restoring customization on new or reset to factory phones tedious in this day & age w/ all backup optiobs available.
