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.

    "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.
