This seems nice to backup/copy typical info off our device for use anywhere, including on the next device.

I did not check special data like contacts and messages because my Android has none of that.

I only got books, music, pictures, and oddly enough, "apps".

All of that data is usable everywhere except the "apps", which I have not had a chance to try to use elsewhere.

If this expires, I've got the useable data, so I'll just use the data regardless of this program expiring - "Annual" is there way of saying 1 year from ... first install? from today's giveaway date?

Since this program has no need for contemporaneous connection, as a malware scanner might, what's the point of expiring at all?

1 year trial, I guess.

In response to [ nowaywins ], "... i am looking for sw that will clone the phone. there are lots of ways to DL messages contacts etc, but what about programs? ..."

Try this - I saw "apps" as something it copies off to a directory on my Windows computer, I presume it then offers to push them the other way, back onto the device or onto another device.

We all ought to do this, especially for "apps" that might not be available from "app" stores later.

Anyway, yes, this seems to backup "apps".

I was so pleased with the program last time it was offered that I purchased it. Couldn't get it to work anymore. Uninstalled & reinstalled again & again. I just knew that since it was offered up again here, I'd give it another shot. Nope - still won't connect via Wi-Fi. Will uninstall once again. It was a great program - when it worked.

Great giveaway! Quick to download and install, help is thorough and it works. If you need links for downloads they're right there in the instructions. For me it's easier to perform these tasks from my desktop. I really appreciate being able to try this for a full year. That gives me plenty of time to decide about buying.

Thank you developers and GOTD for a useful tool.

Dulip Gnanakan, If it did not show the license code on the same browser window after inputting your names and email address you need to either change to a different web browser or disable some of your addons like noscript etc if you use them as the license code and instructions should be shown in a white rectangular page overlay with the text on it which you can select and copy the text to notepad or directly into the register key icon gui of the giveaway program.

I saw this on GOTD, and since the USB connection on my phone doesn't work and this software claims to transfer files over WiFi, I decided to give this product a try. Downloaded, installed, and registered PC  software with no problems, but since I have no USB connection, I had a hard time figuring out how to get the APK on to the Pixel 3 XL. I figured the easiest way to do it was to download the APK from Google Play, but guess what? IT IS NOT AVAILABLE ON GOOGLE PLAY! I was finally able to find a download link which was hidden very well on the Coolmuster site, or was it the PC app itself?  Either way, I was able after much frustration to DL the APK and install the app on my phone. I launched the app and used its barcode scanner to scan the QR to connect via WiFi  (Both PC and phone were connected to the same LAN). The phone vibrated but no connection was made. I tried several times using both the scan option and the WiFi connect button. I tried relaunching both PC and phone apps. WILL NOT CONNECT! That makes this app useless. If I'm doing something wrong, please let me know. Thanks.

Paul Silvan, I presume you did not know that for the APK to be sideloaded via USB the program had to have access to the APK and it does. A copy of the APK can be found in the programs installation \bin folder called:

com.coolmuster.androidassistant.PhoneConnActivity.apk

you only needed to drop it on a SMB share on the PC and use something like ES File Explorer to browser the windows networking shared folder and enable installing programs from unknown sources and install it from within ES File Explorer or pop it on a microSD card and use that to transfer it...

Hello Paul Silvan,
This is Coolmuster Support Team.
If you connect your phone to the same LAN as your pc, then please go to control panel->network connections on your pc to check whether you have several connections, try to disable others that you don't use and just keep one, then restart our program to see whether it works.
If you still have the problem, please feel free to contact us at support@coolmuster.com, thanks.

Hey [ TK ], what's an "SMB share on a PC"?

Google says:

Creating a SMB File Share Symbol Store
Open Windows Explorer.
Right-click D:\SymStore\Symbols and choose Properties.
Click on the Sharing tab.
Click on Advanced Sharing… .
Check Share this folder.
Click on Permissions.
Remove the Everyone group.
Using Add…, add the Users/Security Groups requiring access.

Huh?

Is Dell on point here?

You write "... for the APK to be sideloaded via USB ..." when the prior question stated "... the USB connection on my phone doesn't work ..."

Are you offering a work-around, or did you miss that the USB was not an option?

Thanks.

Peter Blaise, What? I thought you were a computer technician. I used the term SMB as that is what windows file networking is called on an Android phone or any linux based system. I was pointing out there was no need to go searching out the apk app archive from coolmusters site as the OP already had a copy.... the mentioning of sideloaded via USB was just explaining why the OP already had the required apk. IF the programs WiFI connection option has any possibility of working the OP just needed to transfer the apk they have to the android device either by SMB client on the Android device and Microsoft WIndows Networking which is functionally a SMB server using the file and folder sharing controls you found for a very specific folder in the article snippet you quote.

If the installed apk file that resides on the windows programs installation heirachy is coppied and installed on the android device and works via WiFi then problem solved.

Of course I have seen Android and iOS device users claim their USB ports do not work any more and in reality they are fine just the lead and plug has failed on one of the data lines so the USB data does not function but it still charges so they assume the ports partially failed but for a few £ or $ or other units of currency they can buy a new reliable lead and regain functionality!

Surely Google automatically backs everything up anyway. I've had no problem restoring when I've changed phones. What does this program do that Google doesn't?

In response to [ Bucksplit ],

I have absolutely no Google relationship on my Android device.

Are you suggesting that some people witt Android devices can have a Google relationship ... that looks like Apple's backup to the cloud ( which I see Apple tease offering me, that I also do not use ) of things like purchased "apps", music, ebooks, photos, contacts, notes, device settings, customizations, and so on, at no charge, or do you pay?

In other words, are you referring to Google Android hardware only as your experience, or are you referring to any brand Android hardware from any non-google manufacturer?

I'm curious because I have no experience of Google's offering in competition with Coolmuster's offering.

Thanks for exploring this and sharing.

Peter Blaise, I don't fully understand your post. My point simply was that every Android phone I've owned offers free Google backup so that it's straight forward to restore stuff when/if you replace your phone. Of course, if you'd rather not use Google's services you can use others.

Peter Blaise, if you have an android phone, you already have a relationship with google. Who do you think makes android operating systems?

In response to [ Joe ],

I have had many high tech devices and never had any relationship with the hardware vendor or software vendor.

The question was basically , "Oh? How do you get Google to backup your stuff? ... My Android device has no "backup to Google" option."

Thanks.

In response to [ Bucksplit ],

Android is on more than phones - tablets, cameras, things with no cell or Internet of their own, especially during setup.

I think you are saying that Google as a "backup to the cloud" offering for Android devices, not local backup to another device of our own under our own control, like from one phone to the next one, or one tablet to the next one, or one camera to the next one, or just to a USB flash thumb drive, external drive, or Windows PC.

I'm uncomfortable using or depending on the cloud for many reasons, including lack of speed and lack of control.

If you mean cloud backup, that's different than this program, which males local copies of data from our Android device to another device of our own.

Thanks.

If you have made a backup and need to restore the data after one year, when the license has expired, is it possible without buying the program?

Smart Switch doesn't allow you to edit your content on a PC. It's a migration and backup app that lets you move your data to a new phone. It's available for iOS and Android. (I don't work for Samsung, just clarifying.)

Hello dicron liechty,
This is Coolmuster Support Team.
Our program still can help you manage the data on your phone, such as view the data on your phone, delete or edit the contacts, send messages, delete the photos and so on.
And you need to purchase the software to get the license code to use the full function of the program, sorry for the inconvenience.

Reply   |   Comment by Coolmuster Support  –  28 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

dicron liechty, I used Smart Switch to migrate everything from my Samsung Note 4 to my new Samsung S9+ about 18 months ago, and I'd give it a 7 out of 10 review.

It missed a few things, and mangled a few others.

Overall, it was somewhat better than starting from scratch, but not by a ton.

Kjell, actually the coolmuster answer is incomplete and inacurate. This giveaway software initially installs onto a windows based PC but sideloads their Android APK APP via the USB cable or from their site not any acreddited app store like google play or amazon appstore. So the answer is for the program to function the provided programs need to be installed on both devices.
