having my aging phone at bay from interacting with other devices, I came to the conclusion that I should start thinking about backing up its data. Who knows when it might go dead. So I've installed the latest incarnation of the Mobo family: MoboPlay.
MoboPlay can connect to your phone via RS code (and app) or though USB, provided you enable the USB debugging mode. There's a nice explanation on how to do just that in the connection dialog.
It enables you to uninstall apps, check for updates as well as pick apart the entire file system. It is also able to distinguish video from audio and pictures and has categories to browse each of them. With MoboPlay you can also edit your contact entries and to view and send messages.
The rest of the features are found in the Toolbox, where you can selectively back up and restore phone data. There is also a space cleaner that helps you identify large files and remove them (such as forgotten downloaded videos or music). One cool feature is the RingBuild, a simple sound cropping tool that lets you pick-up a sound file from your computer, crop it to the desired size and set it as your phone's ring tone. Although very basic, it serves its purpose good enough.
What's more, there's a Resources section where from you may install different apps that happen to float about in there. Parents take care.
MoboPlay is an evolution to what we've seen in the past. The interface is much improved from the earlier MoboRobo and the prevailing connectivity issues have been solved to my utmost delight.
