Intex PC Suite is a generic phone management application which allows the Intex brand mobile phone users (a popular mobile phone type in India and other Asian countries) to manage their devices and transfer data from the PC to the phone and vice verse. This Phone Suite solution is very similar in looks and functionalities with other Indian manufacturers and service providers like Micromax, GPhone, Spice, Lava phones and more. The idea of the project is to provide a basic tool for out of the box management and a simple way to keep the mobile phone updated, backed up and restored if needed. It does not excel in either looks or usefulness and reflects the actual time and effort that has been put in developing it. The Intex users however will probably not be disappointed because after all, they will get a freeware PC Suite solution for their devices which does the job it is intended to do. We will take all these options and functionalities and explain them as we go through this application. Users downloading it will be surprised it does not need any installation to be able to function. All they need to do is just download the compressed Intex PC Suite package available and extract it anywhere on the PC. After that, open the executable file available in the folder and they are set. The phone can be plugged to the PC either before the application is started or after as it will not make any difference in functionality as the device will be recognized in both of the cases.
