Access your mobile device wirelessly from your browser

THE VERDICT

You can now access your device data from your desktop web browser and perform some actions right from there... wirelessly! Just make sure both devices are connected to the same WiFi network, download AirDroid and follow the instructions. Automatically you'll be given access to a web dashboard which is, actually, your smartphone guts.

THE PROS

AirDroid works in any web browser, on any desktop platform (Mac, Windows, Linux, Chromebook...). From its user-friendly web dashboard you can easily manage media files, contacts and apps stored in your mobile device. You can even send and read SMS, see through camera lens and push urls in either way. Seamlessly.

THE CONS

Seeing through camera lens may be laggy. File sharing speed should be enhanced.
