We're grateful for your reviews and stories

Reincubate and iPhone Backup Extractor were born of a passion for helping people access and recover their data, built from the founder’s own need to recover his data. From the very start, we’ve been humbled and inspired by the response to our software.

So many users have shared emotional stories to keep us going, or offered feedback on how we can improve, just as many reporters and sponsors have covered or otherwise helped us. And that’s not to mention the kindness of Apple and Google along the way. Thank you. 🙏

Through the feedback of millions of our users, Reincubate is rated one of the UK’s top 10 most loved software companies by TrustPilot.
