Mobogenie is a free Windows program that helps you manage the data on your Android device, via USB cable. 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.
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.
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.
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.

What's new in this version:
Version 3.3.7 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
When you first run, displays "downloading driver for your phone" but what it is actually doing is downloading 274MB of programs WITHOUT ASKING FOR PERMISSION- Genie Cleaner, Genie Wifi, KMPlayer and PhotoScape. Then start the popup ads and the launching of your browser.. AVIOD THIS
Do not install this program if you dont want to spend a few hours cleaning up your machine.. it is not worth the effort.
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.
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.
Think long and hard before you install this program because it is like getting a tattoo: It is very, very, very hard to remove.
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.
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.
Get a brain, get flux, get tux, get back to your 'roots' and seriously: get a grip.
Nothing amiss when I downloaded Mobogenie. I highlighted it and ran a spyware check on it and it was OK.
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.
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.
