Androidâs flexibility is simply jaw-dropping. Although its built-in features may not make a complete phone, it has the potential to fit one's personal needs. People were of the notion that android falls behind iOS when it was about taking a complete backup of your media files, contacts, transfer and management of files. That could now be completely rubbished, thanks to the developers for android platform. Managing or backup of files between your PC/MAC and Android phone has never much easier, thanks to WindowShare'sMobileGo.

The setup: Intuitive interface

Windowshareâs android manager â MobileGo seamlessly blends transferring and management of files between your PC and Android phone. Before we get into all of that good stuff, this thing needs a simple setup process. The android app comes in at 4.2MB size and can be downloaded for free from the Play store and the PC software can be downloaded as a 15-day free trial.


The initial interface of the PC software and android app are seen above and I really like the way the app behaves â Intuitive and Distinctive.


Below are the PC software and Android app download links.

Your PC and android phone can be connected with this tool by either of these two methods â Wi-Fi and USB cable. I have personally made use of Wi-Fi, and all it needs to get connected is by scanning of the QR screen shown on your desktop. Once connected, you can manage everything from your PC.

As you can see from the initial interface of MobileGo on your PC, the orange button at the bottom of your device â âOne-Click backupâ is what you need. This is a simple one-step process to backup all of your media files, apps, contacts, call logs, app data, music, photos, text messages, videos and calendar entries! All this backup can be directly saved to your PC and can be restored again, by going to the âToolkitâ on the left-sidebar and selecting the backup file from your PC.


This is one of the most extensive backup tools Iâve ever come across for android, all at the click of a button!


Transferring/Converting files and media

Again, this is the only tool that Iâve across for android that provides users not only to transfer files between PC and mobile, it also allows them to convert files between different formats. That implies, no other software needed again to convert your audio and video files, this does it all!


As you can see from the above screenshot, for transferring of videos, select your appropriate file format from the left-sidebar. You can add files to you mobile or export files to PC from the buttons seen above the files.


Manage your contacts

These contacts can be imported or exportedfrom vCard files, Outlook Express, Windows Address Book, Windows Mail and Outlook 2003/2007/2010. You can also edit contacts by selecting them or even duplicate them.

    As we know, due to some mistakenly deleting, factory resetting or other unknown reasons, we may suffer the situation of losing personal data on Android phone. Fortunately, with Android Transfer, you can easily and quickly back up everything on your Android, such as photos, music, videos, contacts, SMS, call history, apps, calendar, etc. With a simple click, you can recover all deleted data files. Besides, you are allowed to selectively choose only the data files you want back to recover.
