Manage Your Android from Your Computer with Mobogenie

As large as our cell phone screens are becoming, they still offer nowhere near the real estate of a traditional computer monitor. And let’s face it: Hunching over and fiddling with our phones while more powerful computers are available is a bit silly. So how do you make use of the more efficient interface afforded by extra screen space, as well as a keyboard and mouse?

This is where XDA Senior Member proseray and his Windows application Mobogenie come in. Serving as a frontend of sorts for ADB, Mobogenie gives you much of the ADB functionality without the stress of remembering commands and syntax.

Of course, to actually use the app, you must have USB debugging enabled. Once that is ready and the app is installed on your Windows PC, you can access to your device storage, backup and restore your phone, install and manage applications, and access data such as contacts and messages. Thus, with this application you can avoid data charges when loading up on your favorite apps, and you can avoid the mental anguish of sorting and editing your messages and ginormous contact list on a 4.7″ screen.

Avoid the eyestrain and get started by heading over to the utility thread.

Please Note: According to the developers (FAQ #5), Mobogenie installs Mobogenie Phone Daemon on your server device (phone) upon first connection (presumably via ADB install functionality) in order to better communicate with the client PC.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
