Rather useless - does not back up data to PC anymore
Not sure what purpose this servers. Previously it would copy un-synced photos and videos, now for windows phone it does not seem to do anything. You see, you cannot sync full quality videos and photos to skydrive automatically on cellular. So you have to choose wifi and sometimes that's no fun if you want to share photos quickly. So the PC is an important way to backup full quality pictures.More
What's the point?
This app used to be handy for moving files on and off of my phone. Now it doesn't do anything. It says the phone is connected and charging , when it isn't. I uninstalled the app but the Windows Store still says its installed. Not sure what's going on MS but quality needs to matter if you're ever going to keep your customers.More
Different microsoft accounts
If you have a different microsoft account for your phone then it will not show in windows 10. It would show and work just fine in window 8.1 but now I am unable to sync or transfer any files back and forth. The only way around this is to reset your windows phone with the same account on your laptop but I don't wish to loose 2 years of info on my phone. (I can put it all back but in the past I experienced that it takes soooooo long. Thanks Microsoft!More
This app can't sync playlists?!
I had to search around for an hour before I found out that you have to pay for a Groove Music Pass ($10 a month) to sync your playlists using Windows 10. What?! Now I have to PAY to play my songs in a specific order? Syncing playlists from my computer to my phone is something the Phone Companion should do, just like the previous versions did.More
UX hurts, limiting...
behaves like it has never been used before every time I instantiate the interface. it doesn't provide much behavior that is useful. Depressing...The Windows echo system is degenerating and mutating GApple.More
I'm trying to sync playlists from Win10 PC to Win8 phone, and this is useless. The help section doesn't even list that as a posibilityMore
I love being able to sync my pictures from my phone to my home computer.More
This app does nothing, just links you to other apps.
It would be nice to connect my phone, and sync folders (files, pictures, music, etc.) through the USB because I want to have the sync files from my computer to the phone, and vice-versa without having to rely on OneDrive. I really see no point for using this app as it on itself doesn't do anything. If you want to import(not export) photos then it opens the Photo App for you. All I want is really simple, if I add new files to a folder on my computer, I want to connect my phone and sync those to have them in my phone too because if I put them in the OneDrive folder then I will need an internet connection to access them. I don't want to be using my data every time I want to access my files. OneDrive is useful, but I also want to have the option to easily sync folders. Will have to look for a third party app for something that should be integrated in the system.More
Does what it says it does.
Its alright. However, it doesn't really serve a purpose other than reminding you that if you sign into the same account you use for your computer on your phone, all your stuff is synced. I was hoping it would allow me to send texts through my android phone while using Cortana on my computer, or receive phone notifications on my computer, but as far as I can tell, it does not let you do either of those things.More
worse than useless
I have to connect to a Mac to let it manage anything. Garbage app by an unresponsive, irresponsible provider. Give up on phones, you suckMore
