Novosoft, the international IT-consulting and software company has announced the release of Handy Backup v. 1.3 for Android. This version allows customers to back up their phones to a secure data storage system located in San Diego, California. The release of Handy Backup 1.3 is Novosoft‘s first step to monetize the program for Android and resembles a pricing model similar to that of Handy Backup for PC.
