Conventionally, to copy files such as movies, photo’s, tunes and the like from your Android smart phone or tablet requires the user hooking up a sync cable to the computer. Lost the sync cable? Can’t do with the hassle of doing this every time? Then why not use your wireless network to control your Android device!
Surely one of the most talked about (and free) Android utilities in existence, a 5-star rated app in Google Play is the superb AirDroid app from Airdroid.com. To say you can’t live without this great app would be an understatement and simply it allows your Android device to connect, over WiFi, to any Windows or Mac computer and simply ‘copy & drag’ files to and from. It’s that simple, but it can do a lot more too!
And don’t worry about someone hacking into your Android device while you do the wireless free copying. You simply enter an initial pass code (similar to paring a bluetooth device) from the Browser, once you’ve done this, you’re in. View all your Android folders from the comfort of your Notebook, MacBook or desktop PC and simply drag what you need.
Other stuff that AirDroid can do which is worth mentioning:-
