Sprite Backup Feature Hunt

Thu Apr 23, 2009 - 7:12 PM EDT - By Neal Martin

Hey! Just read over at Sprite Software that they're in the midst of completely rebuilding their Sprite Backup from the ground up! It will be completely reengineered to make the most of the features offered in Microsoft’s new Windows Mobile 7 (and most likely 6.5). But, hang on - there's more.

Sprite Software is really interested in hearing from the folks who actually use their software, so they're holding a massive prize contest! Over 12 million people have used their Sprite Backup and they're holding a Backup 7 Feature Hunt, with some great prizes:

  • 1st prize (2 winners)
    Each receives a HTC Touch HD
  • 2nd prize (5 winners)
    Each receives a Bluetooth GPS Unit
  • 3rd prize (30 winners)
    Each receives an 8GB MicroSD Card
  • PLUS other exciting prizes!

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is suggest your one most wanted feature for Sprite Backup 7! If you've never used Sprite Backup, don't hesitate to enter anyway! I've yet to use the program, but after reading about Sprite Backup 6 in the treocentral store, this program sounds pretty darn awesome! I'll delve into some of the features of version 6 and let you judge for yourself!

Sprite Backup 6 Features:

  • Improved Sprite Explorer - Browse your Backup file and extract data – export Contacts as vCards to restore to any device or save them in Outlook or to another mobile phone operating system.
  • Powerful Backup PC Manager - Control your backup operations/options from your PC.
  • Redeveloped Upgrade Mode - We now guarantee to move your Contacts, Tasks and Appointments, SMS and Email, My Documents and Internet Favourites across to a new Windows Mobile device.
  • New 1-step Backup - Trigger a manual backup instantly with this feature!
  • Performance Improvements - General speed, stability and performance fixes and revisions
  • Trusted by 10m device owners – The most popular Windows Mobile Backup solution!
  • Backs up Everything - Sprite Backup can secure all your important device data – contacts, sms, documents, today screens, ringtones, high scores, settings, applications and their activation codes and more!
  • Self-Extracting Backups - Just open the Backup file to restore, no need to install any additional software.
  • and MANY more great features!

As I mentioned, even if you aren't interested in using the upcoming, completely revamped version of Sprite Backup, it's still worth your time to head over to Sprite Software's Feature Hunt page to submit the feature you'd most like to see in a backup program - this time, for Sprite Backup! You've got until May 8th to enter! Good luck and may the force be with you!!
