mBackup is built by students at IIIT-Delhi under the supervision of Dr. Amarjeet Singh. The idea was first worked upon by Atul Goyal (Computer Science Graduate, 2012, IIIT Delhi) as part of his B.Tech. project under the entrepreneurship category. As a final outcome, an Android app was developed that could backup contacts and SMS into a dropbox account. There on, three students - Kunal Mehta, Lokesh Garg and Shreyasi Agrawal (class of 2014, Computer Science, IIIT Delhi) worked in Summer 2012 under guidance of Atul Goyal and Amarjeet Singh. They extended the Android app to support transfer of contacts and SMS over bluetooth, developed a Symbian app and a web interface to edit the backed up contacts and SMS.

Thanks to MUC group at IIIT-D for providing support (including resources) to help us working on the project.
