Mobiledit Lite

CNET Editors' review

The cloud has become a popular term of late, and for good reason: It offers users a convenient way to store and access frequently used files from any location. Mobiledit Lite taps into the cloud's convenience by giving users a way to manage their mobile device on any computer. However, when we put it to the test, it failed to recognize our mobile device after repeated attempts to connect.

During the installation process, a pop-up window asked if we wanted to install phone drivers if we didn't already have them installed. We opted to do so and were taken to the publisher's Web site to download a driver specific to our Apple iPhone. A helpful wizard walks you through the initial stages of pulling info from your mobile device. We told it that we wanted to manage our phone and that we wanted to connect it using a cable or USB. After connecting our iPhone, we clicked Next and the program tried to then make a connection, but to no avail. We clicked the Refresh button, disconnected and then connected our phone again, and even restarted the program, but no luck. It just would not recognize our mobile device. It's a shame, too, because Mobiledit Lite has a seemingly user-friendly interface with easy-access shortcuts to manage video, ringtones, photos, and more. Shortcuts across the top of the window give you access to its Import feature (the Export, Read, Write, and Backup features are disabled in the trial version). The Help feature was pretty sparse and only offered info for activating the program, as well as a list of supported phones (oddly, our phone appeared on the list).

Mobiledit Lite installs and uninstalls without any issues or leaving any files behind. Because we couldn't see the program all the way through to the end, we recommend you save yourself the time and trouble and look for a mobile management program that lets you test drive before you buy.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Mobiledit Lite 6.9.0.2841.

    "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 2, 2011  |   By jimbochi

    Version: Mobiledit Lite 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 1, 2011  |   By albertodonati

    Version: Mobiledit Lite 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.

    Pros

    Easy to use and authenticated data management

    the best aspect is its updates data only on PC not the phone data

    Summary

    Great soft wire , user friendly and reliable on data management it should be freeware
