What's New
Version 2.5.3:
  • Addressed an issue where a calendar could not be backed up if Google was unable to return the list of modifications since its last successful backup. CloudPull now handles this condition by retrieving a fresh list of all events for that calendar.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause CloudPull to attempt to download Google Drive files from stale URLs.
  • Added error handling improvements when downloading Gmail messages.
  • Increased the amount of time allowed for a Gmail message to be downloaded.
  • Fixed a bug that could incorrectly cause mail messages to be listed as unlabeled messages.
  • Fixed a bug that would sometimes cause the "Restoring…" window to not close after restoring via drag-and-drop.
  • Fixed an error condition that could occur when renewing an OAuth token after a backup of Google Drive, Calendar, or Contacts had been running for more than an hour.
  • CloudPull will now find the inbox mail folder even if it is not named "INBOX".
  • Improved the error message shown if a newly authorized Google account does not have the expected email address.
  • Added validation that all previously backed up files are still present in the backup repository at the start of each backup cycle.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause an inability to drag and drop multiple items from the main window if two of the items are Google Drive folders with long and similar names.
  • Built against the Mavericks SDK with Xcode 5.

Hello,

Where does CloudPull place the backup documents by default?

Thanks!

And WHY does Apple sandbox it?
Ok, then why YOU didn't sandbox it?
Pull me out from my ignorance, please!

Thank you Golden Hill Software for the useful explanation!
Having automatic update and sending any useful feedback and crash reports belongs to a collaborative vision of life and democratic, scientific way of thinking to let grow a global peaceful culture defending which brought me tons of negative votes by the 'patriot fascists' of the secrecy, but there was guys 2000 years ago crucified for less, so I'm happy to can be whipped just this way.
I don't see any reason why the Apple policy had to be so Manichean, 'black or white', all or nothing and avoid us to have a proper, willing, collaborative, friendly attitude to bring all together the stream towards a better future, little humble drops with a common dream for our grandchildren!

There are two things most of us want when we purchase an application. We want it to work as advertised (or better) and we want the developer to be responsive to any problems, should we encounter them.

While many of you here are anti-Google...many others are not, and if you're in the latter segment, you need CloudPull...even if you don't realize it yet. CloudPull backs up all your Google account data to your Mac (remember, the backed up data lives on "your" Mac...not in the Google Cloud). It supports Gmail, Google Contacts, Google Calendar, Google Drive, and Google Apps.

CloudPull has a true Mac interface and it's simple...simple...simple to use. Just setup your Google accounts, and forget it. In the case of Google Apps users with family accounts, you only need to purchase one license.

Lastly, the developer of CloudPull knows how to use the REPLY button in email messages and he uses it usually within minutes of receiving an email. I had an odd bug that was most likely related to my Google Apps account, but the developer added code to the latest beta version to fix it...which it did. Kudos to a developer who actually cares about those of us who plunked down hard-earned cash for his app.

I assume you're the dev or a total idiot. Google does this for free.

Dear Mountabe: it never ceases to amaze me how some people just post without doing any research on what they're say. First, I'm certainly not the developer...don't even know him. The big difference here is that Google provides reliable online apps and offers a way to recover lost data (we hope), but it is still up to you to protect yourself against service outages and possible data loss. Regardless of the state of Google's services, your Google account, or your internet connection, a CloudPull backup is always available to you on your Mac. I value the information in my Google Apps account and this is the ONLY solution that assures me I'll never lose it.

LOL. First day? I think they are offering computer courses for seniors at the community college. You should look into that.

@Mountabe: If that's the case...you should sign up to audit one of them (don't bother actually taking it...you'd fail). FWIW I'm a recently retired developer with over 30 yrs experience in all facets of computing. Leave your last inane comment so you can have the last word...but don't expect another one from me. Happy Holidays!

Just chillaxington, Golden Bill. I'm Larry's step-son. He knows it's me. He's just being, um, Larry. Larry thinks that after living with him for 12 years we had no idea what he did for work besides never get out of his chair because of the computer. Dude has an empty detergent bottle at his desk.

Really good program to backup your Google Docs!

We use Google Apps for our business and we use CloudPull to make sure that if we were to loose our internet connection, we still have local copies of vital documents.

The main feature of CloudPull that puts it above the rest (for us) is that it keeps revisions and it keeps everything in Office format (.doc .xls etc) so we can access and edit the programs instantly.

For many people this will be a really convenient way to backup or export their data from Google.

Google themselves provide free ways to do it:

sorry, forgot to mention that if you want to move data the other way ie from desktop to Google, you can, with the very excellent CyberDuck.

Yes, one of the free ways is called Google Takeout but it only supports some of their services at the moment (e.g. Contacts, Docs, etc.) ---

Does this app allow back up to Google? Don't you think your going the wrong way? Every one is uploading to the cloud!? I might be interested if this were an automated way to back up to my google account.

Google provides reliable online apps, but it is up to you to protect yourself against service outages and data loss. While backing up local data *to* the cloud is a great idea, I think it is also important to have a local, physical copy of your data.

Backup. Backup. Backup. Having frequent backs are important. However, backing up to the cloud is becoming a practical solution. My original post was to inquire as to whether you could push to Google as well as pull. Please understand the context...

No, CloudPull backs Google service data up to your Mac. If you are looking for a way to back up your local data to the cloud, I recommend Arq: http://www.haystacksoftware.com/

@Cmacuser If you were just asking a genuine question about some perceived missing functionality perhaps it would be better to remove or adjust your rating if possible? It's not very helpful for people like myself that are interested in this application when it's given a 1/2 star based on what seems to be an opinion rather than genuine use.

@Nick Lo: Thank you for asking @Cmacuser to adjust his or her rating of CloudPull.

There are also ratings available in the Mac App Store, all from customers who have downloaded the app through the Mac App Store. You can see those ratings by going to this link, and clicking on "View in Mac App Store":

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cloudpull/id404445477?mt=12

At present, there are two reviews there: one with a five-star rating, and one with a four-star rating.

I find this useful. There are many, many back-up solutions to the cloud. There are too many times I do not have internet connection and wish I had files locally. This is perfect. Now, I might get an Google account and use Google calendar, contacts, etc, and not be tethered/slaved to online connection. Unfair to give it a half-star rating because it does not do what you are looking for.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
