O AirDroid It is a simple and effective solution to control your Android smartphone remotely through the copier, be it a PC or a Mac. This application allows you to transfer any type of files to the computer and our smartphone, besides the screen playback (screencasting) if you have root permissions. I will now show you how to use it.
We tested the app on a Nexus 7 and confirmed the good reputation surrounding AirDroid. It works fluidly, including with a median connection. With it, you can perform 3 functions: file transfer, full remote control and screencasting if the device is rooted. On the other hand, some functions are only available in the paid version.
