What's the best app for backing up and saving sms/mms text and pics / vids
Honestly I use the Google Photos app, and it works very well...
When I open a photo sent by MMS, and long press the photo, it is saved to the Messenger folder in Google Photos, where I can view the photo, edit it, and share it.
I am in the Textra SMS camp.
I have it set up to default to download all of my Photos to Gallery and they show up in a folder called Textra.
I use the KK Gallery app to view my stuff, lots better than most gallery apps.
as far as sending pictures? I use Google Drive.
Thx for the info...
Another Gallery idea ... I use ...
A+ Gallery Phots & Videos – organizer for photos and videos
It has all the typical options and some additional grouping options I have not seen in any other gallery app ... like year ... or blue.
(Yes year is handy ... I remember taking the picture ... I have no idea when or where I stored it.)
I just tried this and it worked for me for mms.
For SMS texts only, I uses SMS Backup and restore
For regular photos/vidoes, I use Google Photos
I use ...
... to backup MMS and restore on a different device.
