    I used this app on my BB and really loved it. It was in beta for while and now it's finally available for Android in the Market. Check out their website:

    I don't see anything on the website that indicates your data is encrypted, either before transmitting or on their servers. What is a "private web site" anyway? What are the chances I'm going to send all my data in clear text over a wireless connection, and then save it on someone else's server, located I don't know where, also in clear text?

    Approximately zero.

    What on-line Android back-up services meet your criteria ?

    I've not checked out online backups for Android yet. I back up to my SD card, and copy that to my PC.

    For PCs, there are a number of online backup sites that use 128 or 256 bit encryption to transfer your data, and 256K or better encryption to store it on their servers. And they're set up so only you know the password to decrypt the data.

    M:IQ is owned by Best Buy so I doubt they'd be looking to steal peoples' information. I tend to trust them more than all the apps we download authored by JoeSchmo who we know nothing about.

    Besides, it only backs-up: Contacts, photos and videos, phone calls, calendar, and texts. And to be honest, you'd have to be an ***** to send any sensitive information through texts anyways. I don't send or store any sensitive information like passwords on my phone and that type of information isn't even backed up on this service. I doubt anyone is looking to steal my vacation pictures.
