AirDroid Introduces Desktop Widget And Right-Click File Sharing For Windows, New Menu Bar Tabs For Mac, And SMS Search For Both

AirDroid offers one of the more Android-themed ways to get files from your computer to your smartphone or tablet. It's green, there's a bugdroid in the logo, and, well—this isn't the point. Besides, file sharing is just scratching the surface. AirDroid lets you control your device remotely, accessing texts and turning on the camera. Now the developers have rolled out a number of intriguing features in the latest updates to its Windows and Mac desktop clients.

On the Windows side of things, there's a new desktop widget. It lets you access much of the functionality the main client offers without having to load up the full window.

Google Shoots First, Asks Questions Later With AirDroid After Broad Facebook Trademark Complaint

Last night, we received a tip that the Play Store listing for AirDroid, a popular app that allows users to see notifications, respond to messages, and manage content from their Android devices on a desktop, had been removed from the Play Store. The listing was directing to Google's infamous "Not Found" page.

We reached out to the AirDroid team who, at the time, were still trying to figure out what had happened. As it turns out, Google had removed the listing after a mass-complaint from Facebook. The sweeping set of complaints picked up tons of apps with "WhatsApp" in their names, but also apps - like AirDroid - that simply mentioned WhatsApp in the description.

[Update: Winners] Win One Of 100 AirDroid Premium Membership Codes From AirDroid And Android Police

AirDroid has been doing its thing for a while now, and the developers are constantly trying to find new ways to make this already-powerful tool even more useful. Today's update to v3.1.3 brings just that, with significant improvements to AirMirror on Samsung phones. For those who may not know, AirMirror is a tool that allows the user to remotely control their rooted Android phone directly from their PC or Mac. It's incredibly useful.

With today's AirDroid update, this feature has been greatly improved on rooted Samsung phones. Basically, at this point it should work with most Samsung phones running Android 4.0 or above.

[Update: Winners] AirDroid 3 Is Out Of Beta And On The Play Store, And We've Got 100 Premium Upgrades To Give Away

We've already covered the beta, but now AirDroid 3 is available as a completed release on the Play Store. The new app has an updated UI and a few new features, but the biggest change is the addition of stand-alone clients for Windows and OS X, besides the app's famous desktop browser management. You can grab the desktop apps from here.

The Windows and OS X versions of AirDroid let you do pretty much all of the things you could do in the browser, albeit without the "virtual desktop" interface: send and receive SMS, file transfers to your device, contact and call log access, and of course, notification mirroring for your laptop or desktop, including call alerts.

AirDroid 3 Beta Now Available With Desktop Companion Apps For Windows And OS X

AirDroid is one of those indispensible tools that goes on a new phone or tablet the minute I set it up. And it's only gotten better in the years since it debuted: the second version of the web-based management app allowed users to access their Android device for files, contacts, photos, and other functions from any browser with a login system. With version 3, just published as a beta app, the developer has added a stand-alone desktop manager for Windows and OS X.

The desktop client isn't a carbon copy of the "virtual desktop" web interface, it's more of a basic tool for accessing some of the more popular features of AirDroid without relying on a browser.

AirDroid Adds Desktop Notification Mirroring And Drag-And-Drop Folder Uploads In Version 2.0.9

It's hard to overstate my love for AirDroid, the app that hosts a tiny, web-based interface for managing your phone with a desktop browser. And it just keeps getting better: the latest update has added notification mirroring, a la PushBullet and Notifications+. That means that once you enable the setting in AirDroid and Android, you'll get visual indications of incoming notifications on your AirDroid desktop.

Enabling mirroring is easy - you'll get a prompt the first time you start the updated application, so all you have to do is check the box in the linked settings dialog. At the moment the service has some limits on its functionality, mostly because the alerts appear and disappear in a few seconds, and there's no way to scroll back through them - you'll just have to pick up your phone and check.

Even in its current and somewhat dated form, AirDroid is easily one of the best apps on the Google Play Store. The sheer flexibility and polish of the remote access tool has made it one of the first things I install on any new device.

AirDroid 2 will be live on the Play Store in a few hours - here's an exclusive preview of the final build.

AirDroid 2 Beta APK Is Now Available To All, Remote Camera Access And 'Find Phone' In Tow

Do you use AirDroid? You should. It's a fantastic piece of software. While Google tends to prefer using cloud services to manage your data, there is no central app that can access and change anything on your device. This app fills that need and does so amazingly. It's so great that we gave away 20 invites to the v2 beta recently. Now, the invite-only requirement is gone and it's available to anyone who can download it. Plus, it has some sweet new features you'll want to see.

One of the new features of Airdroid 2 is the ability to remotely access your phone's camera via the web browser.
