Editors' review

Moborobo lets you send messages; manage data, images, media files, and themes, and even install apps to your smartphone or tablet from any computer. It can be a pain to set up if you don't know what you're doing, but it works like a charm once you have it up and running. If you'd rather send texts with your full keyboard or just don't want to get up to grab your phone, this is a nice download to have.

Moborobo lets you manage your Android tablet or smartphone from your computer; but to make it work, you need to download a companion app on your mobile gadget. Once you do, you can use the program over Wi-Fi or USB, but both take some setting up. Connecting with USB requires developer permission and a new driver (that windows may flag as suspicious) on your computer. Wi-Fi is a little easier, but you still have to scan a QR code that doesn't always respond and makes your phone vibrate wildly when it does. Once you make it through all of that, Moborobo works like a charm. It lets you use your phone as a USB drive and send texts quickly. To quickly transfer files to your device, you can just drag and drop them to the floating window on your desktop. It can even manage your contacts or current apps and install new ones from the developer's store. Though the program's menu doesn't look like Android's, it still looks nice.

The app is worth the long setup process, but it's still pretty daunting. It's especially off-putting when you know there are other apps that can do most of what this program does without needing to install a new program on your desktop. If you need to manage your phone as well as turn it into the occasional USB drive, Moborobo will probably fit your needs best, though.

    "Installs "Conduit" ad/spyware - tough to remove"

    March 27, 2014   |   By Spiral1

    Version: Moborobo 2.1.5.858

    Pros

    Looked like decent software, a bit bloaty.

    Cons

    Bundled in with this thing is software that download.com/Cnet rams down your machine. It highjacks your browser and reroutes you to their ad laden search landing page. When you try to uninstall this crapware, you actually get a message telling you it cannot be uninstalled because "software is being updated". Nice. It also apparently logs your activity and data - just like having a complete stranger enter into your home also thinking it's ok starting to videoing your family and reselling the videos for profit.

    Summary

    Cnet going forwards: after years of using your service, it looks like I am done. You allow browser highjack software to get installed? What's WRONG with you??? The money is not enough?

    Version: Moborobo 2.1.5.856

    Pros

    Does exactly what it says, it allowed me to export my SMS

    Cons

    The option to export sms to Excel didn't worked for me.
    It installs a weather widget that stays even after exiting app.

    Summary

    I rarely write reviews, but this app save me a trip to my cell phone provider.
    Great app, it works well on windows 7, I can see my messages, pictures, videos, etc.. from my PC. I can export and import files also.

    Cons

    No screen preview for Defy XT

    Summary

    I love texting through it and updating my apps. Very convenient at work.

    Summary

    Great a must for all smart phone users

    "Pretty decent piece of software"

    June 17, 2012   |   By Smith789456123

    Version: Moborobo 2.0.2.290

    Cons

    They could improve the design abit more

    Summary

    Pretty decent piece of software pretty handy to backup and transfer all the mobile from mobile to mobile or just restoring important data

    "Not so great for saving texts"

    May 10, 2012   |   By armymrs

    Version: Moborobo 2.0.1.238

    Pros

    Installs easily and you can see phone content

    Cons

    Text messages do not download in order so there is not way to follow an actual conversation. All the messages are out of order and non-sensical. A real disappointment.

    Summary

    If you need to download your texts for legal reasons, this is not the way to go. No one will be able to actually get the meaning of your conversation. I'm sad to say this was a thumbs down for me.

    Updated on May 10, 2012

    Oh, and you when it says you can email your text messages to yourself, this feature didn't work either. Not sure exactly what DOES work in this software. :-/

    "Waiting for next version"

    February 20, 2012   |   By 03344

    Version: Moborobo 1.0.0.70

    Pros

    Its a pretty useful piece of software with a few interesting functions to manage android device, would like to see how this software develops. It does provide more convience to find all the new games and application for my mobile.

    Cons

    The connection to this application can be improved.

    Summary

    This is an interesting piece of software, there are a few bugs and a better interface would improve the user experience, but in terms of function its pretty good. I would give it a 8.5/10
