It is very often that we are filled with notifications of apps prompting us to update them. There are other times when a newly updated app does not play good with our particular device resulting in frequent crashes. All in all, updating the app is a priority. For one, it means that you get access to the new and latest features in the app including new and bonus levels in games. Secondly, it keeps your phone running smoothly without any force closes.
Now one of the major issue that comes with frequently having to update apps is the high carrier data charges that follow. Unless you have an unlimited internet plan, updating all your apps on regular basis or leaving them on auto-update is not the recommended choice to be made. Mobogenie, a desktop suite for your android smartphone has a very neat trick in place to tackle this very problem. All you need is a Windows PC, a USB cable and your android smartphone running Android 2.1 or above.
Simply download Mobogenie from here. Start Mobogenie with administrative rights and connect your smartphone to the PC with USB cable. Just remember to enable USB Debugging mode. It’s really simple, but different versions of Android have varied methods of enabling it. Check out how to enable USB Debugging on your smartphone here.
Once Mobogenie is up and running, on the home tab under Mobile Phone Management, click My Apps.
It will take you to a list of apps that are installed on your smartphone. Here, you can accomplish the following tasks:
- Update existing apps.
- Move your apps to the SD Card or Phone memory.
- Uninstall any or multiple apps at once.
One of the main advantages of updating your apps using Mobogenie is that you can bypass all network charges as Mobogenie upadates your apps using the internet connectivity of your PC i.e. your broadband. Broadband data charges are both much faster as well as cheaper and with frequent updates being launched for many apps, updating your apps via Mobogenie makes perfect sense.
