Editors' review

Mobogenie links your Android device to your Windows PC, typically via the USB cable that attaches to the device's charger. It not only syncs your smartphone or tablet to your Windows PC but also serves as an Android app manager, picture gallery, video player, and more. Mobogenie is free but ad-supported.

Pros

Usually works: Mobogenie seemed to work pretty well most of the time; something that can't be said of all Android-to-PC sync agents.

Order from chaos: Mobogenie's ad-supported interface fairly buzzes with app ads, but the My Manager navigation drawer is clean and efficient and makes it easy to access the app's features and extras.

Useful extras: Mobogenie includes Pictures, Music, Videos, and Documents managers and more.

Cons

Ads: Mobogenie's home page is dominated by banner ads for apps, apps listed by category, and so on.

Settings maze: You must enable USB debugging in your phone or tablet's Settings to use Mobogenie. That got a lot harder with Android 4.3, which hides Developer Options.

Bottom Line

If you need a tool to sync your Android device to your Windows PC, or if the sync app that came with your phone or tablet doesn't meet your needs, Mobogenie is certainly worth a try. For newer Android devices (4.3 and up) though, Mobogenie might not be worth the trouble it takes to set up.

    "MoboGenie is malware of the worst sort"

    May 04, 2014   |   By persistentones

    Version: Mobogenie 2.2.5

    Pros

    MoboGenie will successfully connect a Samsung S3 Note clone to a Windows XP computer and allows downloading of music and photos as well as installation of programs from Google Play via the computer's Internet connection.

    Cons

    MoboGenie is stone cold malware. You can tell a malware program because it does not come with any way to uninstall it and it resists your attempts to uninstall it at every turn. You cannot simply delete the files, because it won't let you. So, you have to search the Internet for special tools designed especially to remove this particular MoboGenie bloatware malware virus-laden product.

    You had better KNOW WITH CERTAINTY that you want this program forever before you install it. Because the uninstall process will make you want to format your computer instead.

    MoboGenie comes with a boatload of unnecessary programs that automatically start when your computer starts and that slow down booting, slow down the computer and slow down the Internet connection. There are countless unnecessary programs and files that download with this program. It is impossible to remove MoboGenie from the start menu without removing the whole stinking program and all of its dozens of subsidiaries.

    Summary

    Think long and hard before you install this program because it is like getting a tattoo: It is very, very, very hard to remove.
