MyPhoneExplorer is a proprietary freeware desktop application allowing management of Sony Ericsson and Android mobile phones. It is developed in Austria and has been translated into many languages, including English. It is available from multiple download sites and was downloaded over 1.5 million times, as of 2007[update]. Softpedia have given it their 100% Free award, and visitors to Softpedia have rated MyPhoneExplorer very highly. The Android client has been highly rated as well.
MyPhoneExplorer can connect to a Sony Ericsson phone using USB cable, Bluetooth or infrared connections. Once connected, address book entries can be synchronised between the phone and MyPhoneExplorer, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express, Mozilla Thunderbird or Google Mail. Calendar entries can also be synchronised with many systems, including Google Calendar.
As with the PC Suite software which is normally shipped with Sony Ericsson mobiles, files can be dragged and dropped to and from the phone's memory and memory stick. Notably, however, MyPhoneExplorer also allows calls to be managed (i.e. dialled and answered) from within the application, and allows SMS text messages to be saved, read, written, sent, etc. directly from a PC. Moreover, it provides feature of back-up and restore which can back up everything like messages, contacts, calendar entries, and files.
Later versions of the software has support for some Symbian based Sony Erricson phone although some older models are unsupported or require workarounds.
Since version 1.8, MyPhoneExplorer has supported all Android phones running Android 1.6 or higher.
MyPhoneExplorer comes bundled with MixiDj Toolbar, DoNotTrackMe, and RegClean Pro. During installation of MyPhoneExplorer you are given an option to opt out of the bundled applications.
Text displayed in MyPhoneExplorer (e.g. in column headings, message boxes, etc.) is read up from installed language files (e.g. English.lng), thereby allowing translation to other languages. MyPhoneExplorer comes with instructions on how to create new language files and there are approximately 40 languages for which such language files have been created (as of 14 October 2007).
