AirDroid for Android

Ever wonder how those video blogs get neat screenshots of their phone to show you an app? AirDroid lets you do that, in addition to controlling plenty of your phone's features. It works best with a rooted phone, but even stock builds of Android might enjoy the enhanced control of their gadget that this app offers.

It takes a few minutes to finish setting up AirDroid on your computer. Mercifully, there's no desktop client to download and you can connect your phone by scanning a QR code, which feels super cool. Once you're logged in, you can access your contacts, apps, and all sorts of other information on your phone. Sadly, if you're not rooted, you'll miss out on some of the advanced controls. Also, instead of mirroring your phone's background or layout, this app gives you a generic menu with goofy-looking buttons. It does give you detailed information about your phone's current memory, battery, and signal strength, though. You can also download app, photo, or video files from your gadget right to your computer for easy backup. If you want to watch your phone's videos without downloading, you need to install QuickTime.

This app offers a great toolkit for techies who like complete control of their gadget. For people who aren't interested in rooting their phone or installing custom ROMs, AirDroid isn't as useful. Those folks will be able to wirelessly back up their phone's files and apps, which is a nice touch. It also makes it easy to install things without connecting a USB. If those features appeal to you, this app is fast and scores bonus points for working in your browser without downloading.
