MyPhoneExplorer from FJ Software (

It would be a great addition to Portable Apps.

The software is stable and has been around for about a decade. It is actively developed.

The portable version is included in the installer available from the developer's site, but unfortunately, you currently have to run the installer to create the portable version. That's one reason why it would be such a great addition here.

I do not believe it is open-source. I'm not sure if open-source is a requirement here.

Just wanted to add my +1 to this suggestion. I hope bumping this old thread (rather than making a new one) is the right way to do it.

Some additional info:

Thank you

Thanks for the bump. I think how you chose to bump it is the best way... that way the history of the request is maintained.

Description and anything else which might help:

Connection via WiFi, USB-Cable or Bluetooth. No data will be handled by external servers; the whole communication is local.


Currently listed on FOSShub too:

According to the description on FOSShub:
MyPhoneExplorer is a freeware phone management software, useful for those who need to explore their phones. It works with Sony® Ericsson® and Android™ mobile phones (running Android™ 1.6 or higher).

This application can connect to mobile devices using a USB cable, Wi-Fi, infrared or Bluetooth (pairing also possible) connections. As soon as a connection is available, you can perform all kind of actions (listed at features section below) related to backup, Explorer, and personal information manager. It works with almost all Microsoft® Windows® versions in both ways: portable or installer. Linux users can run this software using the Wine emulator (tested with Ubuntu Linux version 12.10).

So, according to the above description, it can be portable (I haven't confirmed), but having it available in PortableApps format would be great!
