I want to be able to browse the file system on android MotoE 5.0 Android from a Windows machine. in Delphi.

I have some examples using PortableDeviceAPI but this is horrendously complex and there are few examples.

I have got MTP demo but this does not work consistently. For example GetDeviceFriendlyName dos not work with this phone.

Is there a simple API and examples?

I just think it is complex (thank you MS and Android).

some devices do not have a friendly name and if I know this the code works.

Now to simplify this! DIY!

For iOS, there is an open source C++ library that works great for data transfer between computer and iOS device, called MobileDevice.h. You can compile this into your library.

You can connect your Android phone to your Windows 7 via USB, transfer files from your Android to computer, but for messages and contacts. You need professional program to do that.
For contacts, you can try Google Gmail, but for messages, Mobiledic Android manager program is the best choice to backup Android text to PC .
