    "One Stop Solution for your Android phone"

    October 15, 2013  |   By negikamal1986

    Version: Mobogenie 2.1.17

    Pros

    Great app store. There were many apps which I couldn't find on other stores.
    Download your favorite videos to your phone.
    No internet connection required on your mobile phone.
    Future developments are also showcased in advance.

    Cons

    It takes longer than expected, the first time the phone is connected.

    Summary

    It's once in a while that you come across such a quality product. Loved it to the core for it technicalities and simplicity. A software that should had been so complicating ended up being the most easy to use. Thanks MoboGenie...

    "Not that good"

    October 13, 2013  |   By mb208

    Version: Mobogenie 2.1.17

    Pros

    An alternative for Kies

    Cons

    Avoid the extra add-ons when installing. It doesn't seem to backup phone settings. The vCard backup for contacts doesn't work when you try to import it into a third party app. Takes a fair while to connect to phone. Will add itself to your PC startup menu, which in my case identified it as pestware. Strangely had browsing issues when installed - slowed down Chrome to crawling pace. Backups take forever.

    Summary

    An alternative to Kies that is far easier to install, but just as slow when running. Backup of data is extremely slow and there is a big question mark over security.

    "Excellent!!"

    October 11, 2013  |   By Rahul_sethi

    Version: Mobogenie 2.1.17

    Pros

    Backup/Restore
    free apps/games from appstore
    No need of 2G/3G connection

    Cons

    Perfect software for me

    Summary

    It backs-up my phone data and the file manager helps me manage my phone data with ease. But what really impresses me is the ability to download apps and games without the very expensive and often unreliable mobile internet connection. Just plug your phone and start downloading

    "Use at Your Own Risk - It makes phone vulnerable"

    October 4, 2013  |   By incomechanix

    Version: Mobogenie 2.1.7

    Pros

    1. Easy & Smooth Installation Hassle-Free
    2. Nice Interface - Simple & User Friendly

    Cons

    1. Makes Your Phone Vulnerable to Adware/Malware
    2. Advises you during installation to override
    factory default setting and adjust a setting
    which is intended for remote tech support by
    a very highly skilled specialist technician.

    Summary

    This program advised me during my setup that to proceed I had to manually make an adjustment to a setting in the phone usually only accessed when a tech support person needs remote access to install a program; otherwise that setting shuts out programs such as malware and adware from being able to much more quickly & easily self-install on your phone.

    That setting is called the USB Debugging setting which is located in the following directory path: Settings>Applications>Development>USB Debugging
    It's purpose is stated right below where you check to activate it: it reads: "Enable debug mode when USB is connected"

    What happens is when you tap the checkbox to activate it an alertbox appears, urgently prompting you "Enabling USB Debugging allows programs to install on your phone without notification. Are you SURE you want to enable USB Debugging?"

    That tells you RIGHT THERE what you are doing is handing over the keys to your phone to allow a program to march right in and SELF-Install .....WITHOUT EVEN TELLING YOU ABOUT IT...

    That's a security threat, as well as makes your phone vulnerable to adware malware bloatware etc..

    A different review posted here, very recently, addressed this same issue and it was replied to by the MoboGenie team denying that adware or malware is installed by the software.. In this review I am not saying for a fact that it did or does install that during initial installation. But as you have read for yourself, the ANDROID operating system itself attempts to caution you to the potential liability of enabling that setting under other than the recommended time (under the direct supervision of a technical supportperson needing direct access for troubleshooting purposes via that setting) That's what it's for. Otherwise it really shouldn't be adjusted.
    This software, MoboGenie to me appears to exploit and capitalize on this setting without any justification to the user. I don't see why

    I think they want you and I to believe that USB Debugging needs to be turned on simply to install the software ONLY. Well, they should say so if that is the case. But they don't. They don't tell you to turn it on, install the software, then deactivate it (turn it back off). They just tell you to "enable" it. (Turn it on, and LEAVE IT ON)..

    This is why I have presented both the Pro's AND the Cons.. and my Summary is the TITLE of this Review... USE AT YOUR OWN RISK... I would suggest to you that if you decide to explore this software, to completely back up your phone, all data, contact directories, etc, and everything you can back up (apps, games, etc) because then if you are suspicious about whether you want to keep this software, you can wipe your phone all the way back to the factory default settings and then reinstall your backups of your data, if you trust that data is "clean" obviously..

    INSTALL AT YOUR OWN RISK... you may be placing your phone in jeopardy...


    sincerely..

    "BEWARE- Malwear and Adwear in this product"

    August 7, 2013  |   By gary161514

    Version: Mobogenie 2.1.7

    Pros

    A program that installs Malwear and Adwear doesnt have any Pros

    Cons

    BEWARE -This program installs Malwear and Adwear Extensions in your Internet Browser that are difficult and time consuming to remove
    It installs,
    1) WebCake 3.0 - an adware program that displays coupons, advertisements and sponsored links via a pop-up box on certain websites that you are visiting

    2) Selection Links 4.3 that causes a large pop up of advertisement links to appear on the left of your screen when you do an Internet search.
    Very annoying

    3) Changes the appearance of new Browser tabs to show links to shopping sites.

    Anyway - My Phone Explorer is a much better program with many more useful features than this infected rubbish.

    Summary

    BEWARE- Malwear and Adwear in this product and much better alternatives available anyway
