We all deal with operating systems every day of our life. They serve as the gateway to the applications and features our devices use, but for users looking for a little more power over the way their devices function, stock OS' can be limiting. This is especially true on phones, where the only way to truly alter the deep functions of your operating system is through the buggy and sometimes dangerous rooting process. Users can often trade the standard software for third party services, but some core functions like the Google Play Store don't offer a range of reasonable options. Mobogenie serves as the premier software for users who are sick of relying on Google's service as the sole gateway to Android compatible apps and files. But Mobogenie doesn't just serve as a gated alternative to the Google Play Store. It unshackles some of the fundamentally curated aspects of how you use your phone and provides you with more versatility and allows you to manage your files and applications using your Windows enabled computer. Most users will get the most mileage out of Mobogenie's app store. Mobogenie claims to use a system of recommendations that's smarter and more intuitive than that utilized by the Google Play Store, but (particularly given the fact that Mobogenie's and Google's algorithms are secret) this is a hard notion to prove. But for users who are worried about Google data mining their information on the behalf of advertisers, this might help alleviate their fears. In terms of the interface, Mobogenie puts the Google Play Store to shame. It runs quickly and sports a clean and functional user interface that's a pleasure to look at. That's a relief, as the Mobogenie store boasts access to millions of Android compatible apps. Moreover, it's further supported by an included file manager. This lets you sort everything from apps and contact lists to videos and wallpaper. The file manager is easy to use, and the fact that it can be operated on a full computer screen rather than a small phone greatly expedites the process of management when dealing with a large amount of information. It's also a boon for users who are worried about the limited amount of storage on their phone. While it won't help you fit more onto your device, it will make sure that any excess files you need are ready to be quickly transferred to your phone when you need them. Mobogenie also increases the versatility of your SMS functionality. If you use your phone for business and have to deal with a large volume of SMS messages, Mobogenie lets you treat it more like your email inbox, giving you the options to easily sort through messages, delete or archive them, and send out mass texts without having to peck away at your phone's virtual keyboard.
