As you already know, Google Play is the official Android app store. There we can search for and install whatever applications we want on our smartphone or tablet, either from our mobile device itself, or from a web browser on the desktop of your PC or Mac simply using our usual Gmail account.
An excellent tool to manage Android, from controlling files to installing apps from a PC.
However, it's not the only tool out there for this purpose... there are alternatives to Google Play that offer us the possibility to download APKs of apps that Google doesn't allow on its market, as is the case of Blackmart or Aptoide. And then there are options like Mobogenies, half way between these two concepts: you can download applications from the official store, but with a different selection of contents.
An interesting Android device and app manager
So, what's all this got to do with a PC? Well, we're basically talking about a program to manage all the applications and contents of your phone or tablet from the Windows desktop. That's basically what this computer version is all about and the functions of which can be summarized as follows:
- Search for and install apps with a single click.
- Download music and videos curated by the tool's editors.
- Manage files and contacts.
- Make backups of the data contained in your mobile device.
- Download eBooks and wallpapers.
- Root your Android and obtain superuser permissions to speed up how it works, save battery or remove preinstalled applications (bloatware).
How does this Android manager work?
How to use the program isn't complicated at all: just connect your Android to the PC by means of a USB cable and make sure that you've enabled USB Debugging in your device's settings to allow your computer to access different storage units (both internal and SD card).
Discover life beyond Google Play.
Using this interesting tool doesn't mean you need to set out on a quest to discuss which one's better: Mobogenie or Play Store? The truth is that you can use them at the same time. One the one hand, Google's market offers you access to apps and other contents such as music and eBooks. On the other, this program offers you a different kind of access, since the selection of apps, songs and other tools is carried out by the editors whose interests don't necessarily have to be the same as the guys behind the search engine and their corporative policies. So just download the full version of this Android manager and check out all its possibilities to make the most of your mobile device.
