I needed to download / backup my messages from my phone to pc. This app worked great. It has a pretty nice interface and allows me to save messages as text, html or pdf to my pc. Pictures that are in the message were also downloaded. Needed to install Transfer Companion on my phone to make the connection work. It can also download other content including calendars and call logs, but I haven't tried those yet.

This app allowed me to sync my iTunes Music on my Windows 10 and Windows 11 system with my music on a Samsung A13 5G phone (Android 13). I am using my WIFI connection between the devices without problems. I would have given it a 5 stars, but I have not been able to figure out how to eliminate duplicates. Not sure how duplicates occurred, but I must eliminate them manually as they are discovered. Would be nice if there was an option to automatically eliminate duplicates.

Very happy with this app so far. After looking for free options for saving parent to parent text messages, I settled on Droid Transfer. Was initially hesitant based upon several of the reviews, but the process and final product (a pdf) seems to be exactly what I was looking for. The PC download and subsequent companion download to my Android (Moto G4) went very smoothly. The conversation I transferred (saved) took place over 30 months and included dozens of photos and images. All photos/images converted nicely within the finished pdf file. Total pages in the pdf was over 700. Be patient. Though it took a while to download the entire conversation (5 minutes) the companion app on my Android continually indicated that it was still in transfer mode and hadn't frozen. Note: Your initial print/download will only get you a FREE pdf of 5 messages and not the entire conversation. To print/save your entire conversation/thread you will need to pay $30 to finish your project. For me, it was worth the $30 to make sure I had an easy to read, printable and email ready PDF of the entire conversation.
