CloudPull seamlessly backs up your Google account to your Mac. It supports Gmail, Google Contacts, Google Calendar, Google Drive (formerly Google Docs), and Google Reader. By default, the app performs backups every hour, and maintains old point-in-time snapshots of your accounts for 90 days.
CloudPull allows you to back up a single account for free. For $9.99 (USD), you can upgrade to get premium features including:
- Support for up to ten Google accounts
- The ability to run CloudPull as a background app
- The ability to store your backup files in an alternate location
Backup file formats:
- Email messages can be imported into Apple Mail individually.
- Entire email labels can be imported into Apple Mail as mailboxes.
- Contacts can be imported into Address Book.
- Calendars can be imported into iCal.
- Documents, presentations, and spreadsheets from Google Drive can be opened with Microsoft Office, and can also be imported into Pages, Keynote, or Numbers. Other files from Google Drive are backed up in their native formats.
With Google Reader shutting down, CloudPull provides an easy way to preserve and export your Google Reader data:
- CloudPull can export Google Reader subscriptions into an OPML file, suitable for importing into most news readers including NetNewsWire.
- CloudPull can export articles you have Starred, Shared, Liked, or Tagged into an HTML Bookmarks file suitable for importing into Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Pinboard.
- Quick Look previews of articles you have Starred, Shared, Liked, or Tagged show the text content from the RSS feed. This is particularly useful for articles that are no longer online.
CloudPull provides a Mac native interface for working with your backups:
- You can browse current backups and backups from old snapshots.
- You can preview backed up items via Quick Look.
- You can restore items by dragging them to the Finder.
- Updated to handle a change in the way Google expects URLs to be generated when exporting documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. This addresses an issue where backing up presentations stopped working.
- Addressed several minor bugs in the in-app store that allows customers to pay for the app or its premium features.
