Editors' Review

MobilEdit Lite offers the ability to manage your mobile device on your computer no matter what type of phone you're currently using. With multiple connection options and a wide range of phone compatibility, this program could greatly streamline the way you manage your phone data, although the trial version leaves a lot to be desired.

Pros

Guide and options: This program is compatible with almost any phone type, which makes it a convenient option for just about anyone. This is especially true of households in which different people have different types of phones, as it eliminates the need to have multiple programs installed to manage them.

Cons

Confusing presentation: The Lite version of this program is presented as a standalone option, but it's really only a trial version with severely limited functionality. In fact, it is Read-only, and you can complete only five dials and one file download while using this version, in addition to other limitations.

Confusing driver installation: The program repeatedly prompts you to install drivers to access your phone, even if you already have them installed. It does tell you that if you have used a program before to manage your device, you likely already have the necessary drivers installed, but then it continues to prompt the installation of new ones anyway.

Failure to read: We did manage to connect an iPhone 5 through this program and have it recognized, but we were unable to get any further. The program couldn't even bring up a display of the selected category for viewing after a significant wait time.

Bottom Line

MobilEdit Lite is an exciting program in theory, but its execution leaves a lot to be desired. The setup is confusing, and in the end, it doesn't even seem to work. While the issues encountered may be less of a problem with the paid version of the app, the Lite installation gives you no incentive to upgrade.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of MobilEdit Lite 7.5.2.4183.

"Close to worthless"

July 23, 2014  |  By Gary Mickelson

 |  Version: MobilEdit Lite 7.5.2.4183

Pros

Nice interface
Many great features
Updated frequently

Cons

Installation difficult, driver downloads "Unable to download" message ALWAYS
Connection to phone difficult
"Not Responding" on almost every program open.

Summary

Version 7.5 has fixed virtually none of the issues stated above. After numerous uninstalls and reinstalls, manual driver download and installation program still starts up on "Not Responding" until you kill it-- regardless of how I run the program. This is common and has NOT been fixed since version 6.9 and I am running licensed version 7.5. Big promises on performance and service but, for instance, their servers that have the driver downlaods for various phones cannot be reached through the automatic download function within the program. You have to go routing around for them.

Great idea. And that's where it stopped.

"Worked OK, many extra features included"

April 15, 2013  |  By nuckyluck

 |  Version: Mobiledit Lite 6.9.0.2848

Pros

- worked OK via wifi and cable
- you can make calls or send a text message from a PC
- many useful features: duplicates detection, ringtone editor etc...

Cons

- the connection process is not so easy - you have to put your android to developer mode (USB debugging mode) - once you can do it, it all works OK
- you have to install drivers for usb cable first

Summary

The tool seems to be OK, many and many functions, a little expensive comparing to free PC suites, but I found the option to pay only $2 per phone using text message - so it's not so bad :) However, the option pops up only after you connect the phone.

"Never worked..."

January 29, 2013  |  By Jim_HiTek

 |  Version: Mobiledit Lite 6.9.0.2848

Pros

Easy uninstall.

Cons

Out of 3 different phones, ie, Samsung, LG840g and Motorola W376, and after downloading their drivers, this product couldn't find a one of them. The first two are brand new, and the Moto is 5 years old. On my computer, when I asked Mobiledit Lite to find my phone, and follow the prompts, one screen tells me to not set the phone for mass storage, however, that's the only option on the phone. My computer shows it as an Unknown USB device, but I can remove the MicroSD card and read/write that with ease. So, I think it's because two of those phones are Tracfones and I believe they block USB connections to computers. The Samsung is from Virgin mobile and it's microSD card is easily read and written to as it's shown as a drive in My Computer. Nowhere can I find in the Mobiledit marketing material info that states that you may have trouble with certain carriers. Nowhere could I find a listing of phone models it wouldn't find either.

Summary

Don't buy this software without checking if your phone is actually found...try it with the lite version.

"Useless. Contortions, Hoops, etc - never worked for me"

January 26, 2013  |  By sc.salamin

 |  Version: Mobiledit Lite 6.9.0.2848

Pros

None. Oh - okay - UNinstalls nicely.

Cons

Never recognized my Samsung Galaxy S3. I tried every combination of installs after uninstalls and it never worked.

Summary

Why is this such a problem - connecting a PC and Outlook to a Smartphone. Ahhhh - the phones are too smart!

"Does not work for me either"

April 28, 2012  |  By Mikedps3

 |  Version: Mobiledit Lite 6.1.1.1806

Pros

Uninstalls well

Cons

My phone and my correct info for the phone were displayed but it refused to install completely. I tried every method given; USB, WiFi, and QR Code reader with no luck.

Summary

You can try it for yourself but don't hold your breath in anticipation.

"Did not work with my Samsung Mobile :("

February 24, 2012  |  By LizetteDM

 |  Version: Mobiledit Lite 6.0.2.1506

Pros

I don't know. Impossible to evaluate, as it does not work. I would not buy it with out testing as they advocate on the download.

Cons

Found my phones (2) but was not able to connect to either of them. Large package takes forever to install. I only hope it removes all the useless code from my comp when uninstalled.

Summary

It did not work. Looks good but fails to deliver.

"Pretty to look at, crippled eval, aggressive pricing"

June 02, 2011  |  By jimbochi

 |  Version: MOBILedit 5.5.0.1140

Pros

appears to have great selection of supported phones
top UI, very professional
good selection of products

Cons

crippling limitations make for pointless eval
very expensive as a consumer product

Summary

If you simply want to see what's on your phone via a PC screen, this is a nice viewer.
If you want to save your contacts, forget it. If you want to see it copy once from one phone to another to evaluate how good it works, forget it. The blocked functionality simply makes this product impossible to evaluate even for a one-time run. There is no eval period. It just comes like a window-shopping exercise. Look, don't touch.

Pricing, too, is OK for commercial products, but the consumer version licenses only two phones at the first cost level, forcing you to keep upping your license fee higher as you get another phone. For a family, or somebody who uses multiple phones, count on spending $119 off the bat, just to have a phone copier. This feels too high. It would be better to take your phones to any cell network store and ask them to copy for free, which they all do.

You can't have that kind of pricing and make the sad-eyes pitch (which they do on their site) to chip in and keep this good software going. How about meeting us halfway in this double-dip recession, instead of double-dipping with miserly device-counts and making, say, a five-phone starting point?

The latest release (5.5) claims to support Windows Phone 7, but there are only Windows Mobile 6.5 drivers available on the site's driver list. This will not work with the all-new Windows Phone 7 platform.

Terribly unfortunate, because the products look very top-notch, but they just don't have a viable consumer offering at this prehensile price scaling.

"it seems to have some major difficulties..."

June 01, 2011  |  By albertodonati

 |  Version: Mobiledit 2.0.0.13

Pros

A nice interface to manage data on your phone, but many features are really unuseful, like video/audio/ringtone editor and do not work properly. And could not find a proper pict for my phone! (I had the same problem with another phone before!)

Cons

I installed the software (lite) and bought a full licence. Nevertheless, the program do not seem to be able to complete basic functions, and is instable. In particular updating the phonebook, can not be updated.

Summary

It also made unstable android as well. One day, after unplugging my phone, I could not even receive calls (without knowing it!). I am quite unsatisfied with this product.
