    Any way we can be sure this isn't some piece of malware since it's not coming from market, or even downloaded from moto?

    That is a risk you take no matter if you install an app from the Market or 3rd party. So far the only malicious Android app on record I am aware of CAME FROM THE MARKET.. just a week or so ago and it was sucking banking info !!

    Concerning the Phone Tools app, you can save some tin foil by doing a Google search for "Motorola Phone Portal" . There is even a link to an Official Motorola Press release(directly on their website) where Motorola mentioned this tool whould come with the Milestone, but it has since been edited by Motorola. It is still a mystery why they didn't pursure this incredible app, but I have already given my opinion in previous posts here ($$).

    Of course the Chinese Gov could have planted this app there 4 months ago to spy on the Droid Army that exists today :)

    The app we are discussing in this thread will do that.

    This is certainly an interesting find. Just got it running and looks like it has alot of potential. As has been mentioned, I wonder why it has not been promoted at all by Motorola? When I first started it up on browser it said something about transfer files. videos, play over wifi but I dont see any of that functionality in the browser app.

    edit - closed the browser link and reopened. Guess it didnt say play over wifi, but did say "transfer files". Other than downloading pictures I dont see anything else.

    Click on the "File manager" tab on the Browser app. This opens up an Explorer file folder window with all your SD card files, from there you can transfer to and from your PC all day long.

    Too funny, I hadn't tried "Playing Music" with the web browser, when I clicked a file to play it the song plays on my phone! I thought it would play it on the PC

    Could be handy for changing/selecting playlists/songs on my desktop at work when listening with my BT headphones without pulling out the phone.

    Interesting little app.

    Does this allow me to simply upload/sync my photos and videos from my phone or does all this have to initiated from the PC browser?

    Interesting, I get the File Manager tab in Internet Explorer, but not in Firefox or Chrome. Probably the only reason I have to use Internet Explorer at this point!

    I think everything it will do is initiated via the PC web browser.

    Interestingly, I was emailed a survey from Motorola asking me about this very program. It was very short, only about three questions, but I told them I would find it useful.

    I wish you could see SMS as threads just like on the droid, its incredibly annoying saving a convo.

    ...unless I'm not seeing an option?

    question, the only thing I've d/l'd other than apps from the android mkt was the gallery for 2.1. I just d/l'd zip viewer to open the MPP.zip. it is only giving me options to open it to my SD card. I know we can't run apps from our SD cards unless the phone is rooted. I'm not rooted. what the hell do I do now? Yes, yes, I know I'm a newbie. can someone walk me through what I'm supposed to do?

    Just for the facts :) and that we are clear on the terminolgy so others aren't confused , Motorola Media Link Software (made by Nero) Motorola Media Link - Motorola USA is a PC based solution (131mb Download) used via USB cable connection.

    Motorola Phone Portal (Phone Tools) that we are discussing here in this thread is a different animal, it is a phone based app that uses WiFi.
