Mobizen is a remote Android management service for Windows.

It's nice when your phone and PC get along. Mac users with iPhones have experienced this for years, but there's always been a disconnect between Windows computers and Android phones. Being able to manage your phone from your computer is fantastic, and it's something that Mobizen helps you do very well. The program allows you to use all of your phone's features on your desktop as if you were holding the phone, making for a great user experience that is just a little bit easier than working on the phone alone. It's a great leap forward in integrating your devices.

Mobizen is relatively easy to use and to install, which is a point in its favor. It's a little harder to use than some of the other similar programs, but it's still light years beyond where you'd think the program would be. Once you get everything up and running, use is virtually seamless. You'll encounter a hiccup here or there depending on your phone or version of the operating system, but most of what you will do will be intuitive. With quick access and remote screen recording, this is a full-featured program.

If you've got an Android program, there's no reason to avoid Mobizen. There might be easier to use programs out there, but they aren't necessarily better. This is as close as you are going to get to full integration with a non-Windows phone, so enjoy it while you can. As more changes come to Android phones down the road, you might not get to see this functionality for long. As always, check your individual phone to see just how good the integration can be.
