I use a Mac desktop and wanted to transfer to/from it and two new Samsung mobile devices, a phone and a tablet. Samsung recommends Android File Transfer. Don't bother. It won't work. Airdroid does work, if you install it in the Mac first, then plug in USB to the mobile device. Airdroid suggests downloading from their site to the device separately, but don't do it. Download the client to the desktop, then set the mobile device to USB debugging and plug in the USB cable. The desktop client will connect and plant a version of Airdroid in the mobile.And start with USB connection. Don't try starting with WIFI.
Greatest app I've ever used I've tried pushbullet, mySMS, and finally air droid because I wanted to see which I liked best and this wins hands down. This is mainly because it is free with unlimited texts sent from your laptop, yes all the other apps ARE NOT FREE AND DO NOT PROVIDE UNLIMITED TEXTS, trust me I've tried. But after delving into some of its other features such as screen mirroring, screen capture, file transferring, and the phone locator I realized it really is all you need and more.
Very useful app Because of problems with Win 10 not recognising my Samsung Galaxy S4, I was looking for an app that wirelessly transfers files, mainly photos and music. Initially I had problems with Airdroid and posted a 2 star review, but the email support has been excellent and I now know how to do exactly what I require. Hence, this revised review. Indeed, in playing with the app I have come to realise how integrated and powerful it is. Like it a lot.
Problem with Win 10 Sync & notifications work great. Issue is when the window closes in Win 10, it leaves an outline of its window imposed on the desktop background. If it opens & closes multiple times, then you end up with multiple outlines, kindof annoying. Happens on both desktop & tablet. Knocked 2 stars off for this.
This is one of the most useful Apps that I've ever had and I still love it. One minor issue that I do have, is that it disconnects itself quite often while using it and I didn't have that issue with older versions of it. I would suggest is find out what you did previously which prevented that and include it in a future update.
Creative design and engineering, simple to use, and secure I've been using Air Droid for a week now. So far it's been quite reliable and it has quite an impressive set of features. Only once have I encountered a minor glitch. I could not see the thumbnails upon connecting. But I disconnected and immediately reconnected and the problem was resolved.
Bug fixes and improvements.
