Default Move files from phone - PC and vice versa

By using AirDroid, - I have found it extremely easy to move files for root, photos, music, and even text in the clipboard.. Just wanted to share this with all if you as it's really quick and easy

I tried it for the first time briefly last night. Seemed to work ok. Apparently the transfer rate s aren't very quick but still a good app by far.

I think it all depends on what mode your wireless router has.

I pretty much only use Airdroid now to move files (including ROMs) as my usb connection is on its last legs and constantly crashes my phone and computer trying to transfer files I have a 40+mb connection at home so I can transfer most stuff in seconds

I use WebSharing Lite from NextApp, Inc. It basically turns your phone into an FTP server.

Very simple to use, and it's secure too. Every time you press the in-app "start" key (which runs FTP server software on the phone, making the phone act like an FTP server) the app generates a randomly generated password that you (or someone you trust) must log in with on the web page the app generates. Then, whoever is at the PC (and logged in) can upload and/or download files to/from the phone.

I've been using it for about two weeks now, and I gotta tell ya, it's a hell of a lot better then using Bluetooth or a USB cable.

And no, I'm not affiliated with that developer in any way.

Default New Updates !

Air Droid was updated recently - and my God it is amazing now...

Things I have noticed to be great now :

1. You can activate the connection by a QR code instead of typing your IP and passcode

2. You can use it to make screenshots

3. You can see your most frequent contacts

4. There is a small widget that allows you to move things in/out of the clipboard

5. There are a few options like speed install on the top part of the screen
6. You can open url's on your device from the website

7. You can rearrange the icons and there are a few widgets

8. There is now 4 homescreens which I guess are for 4 different devices to be connected

Other things - the app UI us a bit nicer and less iOS like
- a picture that matches your phone appears near you device details

AirDroid works very well. Especially if you;re using an 802.11n router.
I give it two thumbs up.

I have one annoyance when using Directory Opus to communicate with my Android (Galaxy Nexus) phone via ES File Explorer. That is when transferring files from phone to my Windows 7 PC, the timestamp of each file gets changed to the date and time of transfer rather than the original (correct) timestamp on phone. Any clues on how to resolve this?

Android Manager was a useful tool to transfer files between Android and PC of the day. For anyone who grabbed it when it was made available, it's an awesome alternative to transferring via USB or wifi and so much faster. It lets you manage your entire sd card right from your computer. Rename, Delete, copy, move, transfer and upload. There's a free version also but I'm not sure what the differences are.
