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.

    "Best portal if you have half a brain and use it right."

    April 06, 2014   |   By Alice901

    Version: Mobogenie 2.2.3

    Pros

    Mobogenie is by far the best portal for android if you are not dumb. How do you think they provide a portal for free? Anyone who can root, look at (not even know how to edit) a command line should be able use the portal for what it can do.

    Take for instance the LG Optimus Zone which retails for around 40 USD. Good phone, but good luck getting to use it without at least activated-unless you know how to force open the android browser, get mobogenie which force opens the settings to allow it to install, and then is installed and the apk is viewable every reboot and you can enter your mobogenie view the apk and it will "reinstall" but then you have access to everything. It will give you every tool you need or it can let you play dumb games and bloat your phone with malware if you install it all like an idiot. If you have 10 extra bucks, just get an Ariel II; you can use it straight out of the box without problems to get all your favorite apps on it.

    Cons

    The portal will not protect idiots who have no idea how to avoid signing their life away to malware and blaming their idiotic click click -crap!- mentality on mobogenie.

    Summary

    Get a brain, get flux, get tux, get back to your 'roots' and seriously: get a grip.

    "Malware of the worst kind"

    January 17, 2014   |   By Exactly_Junk

    Version: Mobogenie 2.1.37

    Pros

    Sorry, there are no pros when it downloaded itself to my poor lil ol Nook Color and locked it up.

    Cons

    Is malware designed to download itself to Android phones, but somehow it got my Nook. Which was stock with no apps. I only used it to read web pages, but now it's locked up with this app.

    Summary

    Avoid it if you can.

    "Installs like malware without consent."

    January 04, 2014   |   By jarturof

    Version: Mobogenie 2.1.36

    Pros

    None, this piece of software is useless, it does not provide anything the software inside android already does.

    Cons

    That crapware installs without consent, I dont wnat that.

    Summary

    Their ads, forced downloads and software is annoying, hopefully they will go bankrupt or forced to close due to those malware tactics.

    "Problems rest with the site you use pal"

    October 17, 2013   |   By tekni

    Version: Mobogenie 2.1.7

    Pros

    Nothing amiss when I downloaded Mobogenie. I highlighted it and ran a spyware check on it and it was OK.

    Cons

    The download site I used had an extensive list of unwanted stuff I had to 'Un-tick' before I could get the Mobogenie software to clean download. I don't give reviews until I have thoroughly tried the product but it seems fine to me so far.

    Summary

    You must be very careful when downloading from sites other than the company you want, and Un-tick things you don't want. You MUST read the 'web address' and be careful if you want to avoid this sort of thing.. This especially applies to most free stuff out there.
