Why is that folder empty?

I think it's preferrable to use an org file you don't use otherwise as
inbox.  When pulling from MobileOrg, all notes you caputed on your phone
will go there so that you can refile them.

The latter is where MobileOrg puts its changes in.

The default value is (org-agenda-files), so it should push all your org
files to `org-mobile-directory'.  What does C-x C-e after the closing
paren above return?

My settings are

  (setq org-mobile-directory "~/Desktop/Dropbox/MobileOrg")
  (setq org-mobile-inbox-for-pull "~/repos/org/from-org-mobile.org")

which work pretty well.
