AirDroid for the desktop is a free full management system available for owners of Android tablets and cell phones, operating over a WiFi network.
AirDroid can be used to manage your phone over a wireless connection and facilitates file transfers between your PC and Android devices, access call lists and can even read and send SMS messages over your wireless carrier network.
The user interface of AirDroid is pretty neat and is organized in vertical tabs with icons representing their functions like calls, messages, notifications, etc.
AirDroid is a pretty cool program and viewing your call list, missed calls, SMS messages and more is done without even having to pick up your phone. It sounds ideal for people who have little time or interest in checking their phone every time a notification alert takes place. Much of what happens on your phone can show up on your PC as notifications in the system tray.
AirDroid itself does have one prerequisite: You must also have the corresponding AirDroid for Android app installed on your device. This can be done either with the Google Play Store or with the Windows application. The program does have a limit of how much data may be transferred per month.
AirDroid also offers some security functions, namely the E2EE (End-to-End Encryption) used on your wireless network.
AirDroid also includes a "Find my phone" feature which can locate your Android device on a map and allow you to erase data remotely, lock it or play a sound. The latter function being a great alternative to ringing your cell phone if you've misplaced it.
Backing up data, restoring data, copying videos and photos and uploading/downloading music are all possible by using synchronization features on offer by this free Android tool.
Overall, AirDroid is a really cool and useful application which really allows you to remotely use your cell phone features on a PC desktop and highly recommend it for its time-saving value.
