Backup MMS allows you to easily save those attachments that you have sent to, or received from, your contacts.
- Works as designed
- Free to download (Pro version $0.99)
Setup is a breeze, simply download the app from Google Play and launch the application. The app automatically searches your messages for attachments that it can grab.
Backups MMS is not the most intuitive name for this app. While there are a lot of apps that will backup your SMS and MMS messages so that you can install a new ROM or transfer them to a new phone, I have not seen a lot of apps that will actually allow you to easily save the attachments to those messages directly to your internal storage.
Once you have launched the app it automatically searches your MMS messages for all attachments and puts them into three categories for you: Image, Audio, Video. Simply press the floppy button at the bottom right of the screen to save everything to your phone’s storage. Unfortunately, you are not able to specify where you would like to save these files.
The app is limited to backing up all items unless you would like to upgrade to the pro version. This unlocks features like selection of items you would like to backup, renaming of files, removal of ads, and it allows you to save higher quality images (saves them as .PNG, .JPG is the default).
The app also allows you to see statistics about how many items it found and how many of each category were found in your messages.
- Does what it sets out to do
- User-friendly GUI
- More customization would be nice
- No app integration (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.)
Despite a confusing name, Backup MMS is an app that completes what it sets out to do; backup those attachments in your MMS messages, and with the Pro version only costing $0.99 for those extra features, it’s not a bad price to pay. With the addition of some storage customization and app integration for things like Google Drive or Dropbox this app would be a real winner.
