Our smartphone devices store the most precious data we have. Our beautiful pictures and videos, documents, music, and what not! But the problem is, what are you supposed to do when you accidentally delete a specific file? Or what if after deleting you realize that it was actually required? This is one of the reasons why some people prefer having hard copies of their important documents or pictures. But well you don’t need to do that.

You can instead install the dumpster app. This app works just like the recycle bin in Windows. When you delete some data, it stores the same. You can recover it back right when you need it. The features of the app include:

  • You can recover any music file, video, image, document (pdf, word, etc.) back even after deleting you.
  • You can do that without manually backing up all your data again and again.
  • You can preview the deleted files in the Dumpster App before recovering them.
