Address Book Contacts Backup App for Android

Easy Contacts Backup

Nearly all of the Address Book Contacts Backup App for Android are filled with ads. They're also complicated to use.

The idea here is to create a one screen layout that is easy to use. It should be possible to backup and export or share all contacts in 2 taps. The bottom area is reserved to show an ad to Everyday Hobo.

Tap on the button to generate a backup. The button needs to animate when generating the backup. What happens if the user closes the app?

Backups generated by the app need to be stored in the phones local filesystem. Nothing is saved online.

The app will read the vcf backups from the directory and show the backup filename with the date from the file in the grid below the button.

So a person's contacts would be stored on a Hobo server? That sounds like personal data on Hobo?

Dave you are right, this is against our code of security, we do not want anything of value on the site.

Nothing is stored online. It is just a simple export no sync no nothing. Backups generated by the app need to be stored in the phones local filesystem. Nothing is saved online.

The idea is to create more utility apps under the HoboTraveler brand. If this app had 2000 downloads, 1000 would discover everydayhobo and maybe 200 would install it.

That is sounding better.
