AnyTrans® - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

We have a development team with over 10 experienced engineers. Before we made 'AnyTrans for Android', we mainly focused on PC & Mac desktop applications for smartphone data management and recovery. Our users hoped to use our service on their mobile phones, that’s why we finally made 'AnyTrans for Android'.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Although we have been making desktop applications for a long time, it’s not an easy job to combine a desktop application with a mobile app to bring our users new and better experience. This explains why 'AnyTrans for Android' gets 3 big betas and countless small betas before it's officially announced.

'iMobie' was established in 2011, located at Tianfu Software Park, Chengdu, China. The company's name is inspired by "I'm Optimistic, Brave, Independent & Efficient", which represents the main characters of this young, passionate and promising team. At our fledgling stage, we focus on developing iPhone, iPod, iPad content management, iOS data recovery and iPhone/Mac maintenance utility software. We believe that all our efforts are worthwhile since over 8 million happy users have been served by 'iMobie' products and services.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

'Send Anywhere', 'ES File Explorer', and 'AirDroid' are three of my favorite apps. The fast sharing feature of 'Send Anywhere' lets me share files quickly and easily with my friends. I love 'ES File Explorer' because of its full-way and powerful file management. 'AirDroid' combines its mobile app with the desktop app very well so that I can use it in any case, which is also what we hope our 'AnyTrans for Android' could bring to our users.

How long have you been working on this app?

It has cost us 7 months to finish 'AnyTrans for Android', with the effort of 10 experienced engineers.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

We made 'AnyTrans for Android' mainly for a fast and simple file sharing between a computer & an Android device and also between 2 Android devices. No USB cable needed, no cloud service involved, the transfer process happens directly via a Wi-Fi network. Quick and easy.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

The neat UI, except a build-in file manager, also provides file sharing with an iOS device and a computer. Automatically convert Android incompatible format to compatible format when transferring content from iOS to Android. For example, convert HEIC images to JPG format.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We will add automatic Wi-Fi detection, multi-clouds file transfer and management and improve the transfer speed in future updates.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

We hope they can share their thoughts about 'AnyTrans for Android' with us, so that we can also know what to do with future updates. Of course we’d be very happy if they can recommend 'AnyTrans for Android' to their friends and family.
