We think you are going to love the concise look that AceThinker has delivered in the new version.

The main interface has 6 distinct tabs: PHOTOS, MUSIC, VIDEOS, APPS, FILES, and STORAGE. Clicking on a tab reveals the items within. On the upper right corner you will see the scan button, which you can click to scan the QR code on the desktop app in order to connect devices. A link icon is on the bottom right of the interface, and pressing it will present you with 2 options: PC and Globe. The PC option represents the Phone Manager desktop program, and offer 3 ways to connect Android to PC. The Globe option allows you to connect your phone and computer via the internet.

Clicking the menu icon or sliding to the right reveals another interface. This features Space analyser, Hot Apps, Feedback, Help, About, and Settings. Hitting “Exit” takes you out of the program completely.

Part 3. Connection

As previously mentioned, there are 2 connection methods available in the app, which each one delivering 3 ways to connect.

PC icon:

This method requires you to run the software on your PC first before connecting your phone in one of the following 3 ways:

Way 1: Connect your Android device to your PC using a USB cable. If you get a prompt to “turn on USB debugging,” just click OK. If the prompt does not pop up, go to the app Settings and select USB Debugging > Debugging to start the process.

Way 2: A QR code appears on the desktop interface. Click scan on the phone app to begin the process. You get the same results by tapping the scan button on the phone interface.

Way 3: There is an input box located directly below the QR code. When you push the PC icon on your phone, you will be presented with a verification code, which you then need to enter in the input field.

Globe icon:

If you are away from your PC, you can use the Globe option on your phone, which will direct you to a website. The next step is to press “Scan” to capture the QR code, or you can type in the code that will be showing on your phone. You also have the option of entering the IP into the browser to connect your phone to your computer.

Tips:
