Mobogenie is an Android Backup and Management Solution

Mobogenie is an incredibly easy to use software which allows you to backup and perform a plethora of tasks on your Android device — most importantly, backing up your device.

Easy Backup

I have to admit that I’m not one to get too enthusiastic about Android device management solutions and I’ve rarely seen universal, easy to use solutions. However, Mobogenie has changed my opinion. It demonstrates that it’s possible to build a simple piece of software that caters to an Android user and does exactly as advertised. Plus it’s free.

Installing Mobogenie is done as you would install any other piece of Windows software. You can download it from here, then hit Next a few times — an no worries about it installing toolbars or other crapware during the process.

Nothing needs installing on your Android device, but you need to have USB debugging enabled. If you don’t, here’s how to enable it. With all of that out of the way, start the software and connect your phone.

Once connected, you’ll get a simple, straight-forward interface with tabs for navigation. The My Phone tab is the most important one, as it gives you access to everything you can do on your device. It shows an overview of the way space is used on your device, but it also allows you to manage files on your SD card, It also provides the ability to install apk files and, most importantly, backup and restore.

Backing up your devices is simple. Just launch the Backup Wizard and after the software gathers information from your device, you’ll be able to create a backup of things like contacts, apps, music and much more. Even if you’re syncing contacts to the cloud, having a secondary local backup is important as well.

Other Mobogenie Features

Some other cool features are you can manage content like images, videos or ringtones directly on your smartphone from the program. While you can do that using a regular file manager, Mobogenie also allows you to manage your SMS messages and Contacts directly. You can even reply to messages straight from your computer.

What I also like is it’s possible to update apps on your phone directly from the Mobogenie interface, without touching your phone. I presume that the computer’s internet connection is used, as my phone wasn’t connected to WiFi.

As you would expect, the app is tied up to an alternative Android app store. This allows you to get apps, free ringtones, and wallpapers. Just a simple click on the Download button, and the  content is sent to your device.

The same goes for apps in the store. Even if you’re not interested in any of the content from the magisto store, just having a feature rich back up and restore feature makes this worth it alone.

    How does this app compare to HELIUM (formarly known as CARBON COPY)?

      First of all, this one doesn’t need you to install anything on the phone. Also, it does a few other things, apart from helping you backup your apps.

    wow! Just in the nick of time: Just got rid of my iPhone 4S and got a Galaxy Note 2. Compared to the iPhone the droid is very confusing to operate and requires a lot of learning. But one of the reasons I got the droid was because of ease of interaction between it and my desktop – which was almost impossible with the iPhone. THANKS MUCH for the information!

      Glad to hear it’s useful. No, that didn’t happen to me and I have no idea why it could happen. However, you can always try contacting support on the Mobogenie website.
