Usually, backing up your data takes a concerted effort. To take time out of your day to do something that may or may not be worthwhile is a tricky choice to make. Often, we don’t bother, and that’s where it all falls down. Creating the habit is certainly difficult, but what if backing up was part of a habit we already have? Meem aims to do that. By taking a daily task all mobile phone users religiously do and hijack it to incorporate backups.
The concept is simple. A specially designed cable for Android and iPhone backs up the device when plugged in to a power source. Data is stored on the device, and while its space is limited compared to the cloud, it’s far more reliable since it doesn’t need an internet connection, or computer software for that matter.
Meem is available in 16GB and 32GB versions for £40 – £56. Be quick to grab one on Kickstarter before their campaign finishes.
