    Just found one of the best apps that I've used on android!

    "AWSOME DROP"!!!

    It lets you sync any file from your computer onto your phone without having to log into any account or use any wires!!!

    :D

    Really loving this one!!!

    Giving "Drop Box" a try now... sounds a bit more advanced than the "Awsome Drop" App as it's more like cloud-based storage, which sounds great!

    I'll let you know how I get on!

    :D

    Ok.. so the main differences are:

    Drop Box: Online Storage and Sharing of Files, which has the option for download for offline use.

    Awesome Drop: Sync's files direct to your phone for immediate offline use.


    I now have BOTH!!!

    Two great Apps! Thanks Guys! :D

    If you're comfortable using FTP, it's handy as hell. I use SwiFTP to turn my phone into an FTP server, then connect using Filezilla on my PC. So much handier than sticking the cable in, and the cable is like, a foot away.

    SwiFTP is the best. I always use it.

    I use a Whindows Home Server fro HP. Does anyone have any useful tips on apps to use to access files on that through the network just as I access it from our computers?

    along the same lines, I use TunSync for keeping my iTunes playlists & tracks sync'd with my phone wirelessly.
    (My aim is to ditch iTunes altogether in favour of Winamp, but it's a gradual process!)

    ES File Explorer over your wireless LAN. Flawless.

    Thanks for this one, Harry2, I loved MyPhoneExplorer while I had Sony Ericsson phones :)
