    "Super Backup & Restore does what a lot of the other backup apps do, but it can automatically save to gmail or google drive, too, making it a lot easier to work with a wiped device or dodgy SD card. It does the standard backup of contacts, apps, data, calendar, texts, etc. I think being able to schedule backups is the best feature, because you don't have to think about it and will always have a backup in case of emergency.
