MoboPlay is a free Android PC suite to backup & restore Android data, transfer media files, take screenshot of Android from PC, view device in fullscreen, manage files, install apps, manage contacts & messages, etc. It exhibits all the features of another popular PC suite “MoboGenie“, but the features which make MoboPlay unique are space (junk) cleaner, the screenshot function, and the fullscreen view. It also shows some software and hardware details of the connected Android device along with storage usage.
You can easily backup and restore your phone’s data like contacts, messages, call logs, images, apps, and music. The fullscreen view of the device can help you take better screenshots using the built-in screenshot feature. It also helps you transfer media files like photos and music from your phone to PC and vice versa. You can explore and install tons of apps and games directly to your Android device. If you wish to clear up your storage, then use the “Space Cleaner” to remove all the junk files and free up storage.
Let me explain all the important features of MoboPlay and how you can use them for your Android device.
How to Backup and Restore Data of your Android Phone:
Step 1: After opening this PC suite, click the “ToolBox” tab to browse various options including backup and restore.
Step 2: Click the “Backup” option in the toolbox to select items or data of your Android phone which you want to backup. It allows you to backup contacts, messages, call logs, images, apps, and music. You can also set the destination folder where you want the backup to be stored.
Step 3: Once, you’re done selecting items and assigning the destination folder, simply click the “Quick Backup” button to start the backup. It will automatically create a backup file with all the items you’ve selected in the destination folder.
Step 4: To restore your data from any backup file, select the “Restore” option in the toolbox. A popup will appear with all the backup files and item types. You can check and uncheck any of the item types from the list. When you’re done with selecting a backup file and associated items, hit the “Restore” button, that’s all.

How to Transfer Media from Android to PC and PC to Android:

Step 3: If you want to transfer files from PC to any of the folders in the “Media” section, then click the “Upload” button adjacent to the “Export” button. After that, you can simply browse your PC and select the files which you want to transfer to your Android phone.
How to Manage Contacts and Messages of Android from PC:
Step 1: Click the “Device” tab and you will be able to see two folders named, Contacts and Messages below the “Media” section.

Step 3: If you want to manage all your Android messages, then select the “Messages” folder. All your messages will be visible on the screen, where you can delete and view messages. You can also start a conversation with any of the message senders right on your PC.
How to Clean Junk Files on Android:
Step 1: The last useful and important feature of MoboPlay is the “Space Cleaner”. Go to the “ToolBox” tab and select the option “Space Cleaner”. As soon as you do that, a popup window will appear with two tabs named, APK Files Cleanup and Large Files Cleanup.
Step 2: It automatically scans through all the APK files to find and clear junk file. But if you want to free up more space, then try the large files cleanup.
Step 3: Simply click the “Large Files Cleanup” tab and hit the “Scan” button. It will scan your entire phone for large videos, images, unnecessary documents, etc. You can click the “Clean” button associated with each junk or large file to remove it instantly.
