Sprite Backup Users say….

“peace of mind..”

“I love my Motorola Q but I must admit it is a Smartphone with some serious issues. Sprite Backup gives me the peace of mind that if something should happen to my Q that I will be able to recover. I helped beta test Smart Backup 6 and I can’t say enough good things about the Sprite team. These guys are serious about supporting the customer.”

- Michael Griffith - Motorola Q user

“Setting up my automated backup was a snap..”

“As a software beta tester I depend on Sprite Backup for critical backups prior to testing. The interface on Sprite Backup 6.0 is easy to use while retaining all of the options one would expect from a full featured application. “

- Curtis H : Sprint Mogul user

“a solid and versatile disaster recovery solution..”

“How many solutions are available for Windows Mobile that will not only allow you to rapidly deploy handhelds and phones to your workforce but give you a solid and versatile disaster recovery solution and the added security of carrying current backups with you in the event of a crash?
Only one, and that is Sprite Mobile Backup 6″

- Michael Allen,Systems Administrator,Seattle, Washington : MotoQ user

“This software just WORKS !”

I been working in data protection on UNIX, Linux, and Windows for over 10 years and have always felt that PDA’s were at risk.
I’ve been using Sprite for three generations of the software and have tried all its competitors.
I always came back to Sprite as “the best of a bad lot”, thats changed with Version 6, now I wont even bother trying the others.
With Sprite Backup Version 6, I have confidence that what I backup WILL come back in a safe, secure fashion and without having to tweak the system afterword. This software just WORKS! Exactly as advertised and without frustration.
Well Done!”

  • Do I really need it?
    Report suggest that up to 1/3 of all cellphones maybe lost or stolen every year. If that happened would you mind losing your contacts, sms, documents, today screens, ringtones, high scores, settings, applications and their activation codes? If you would, then you need Sprite Backup.
