I was able to easily connect AirDroid using the web-based interface to my Google Pixel 2. However, within a minute of connecting, the connection would break. I tried this multiple times using three browsers: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox. AirDroid will only use my device's Internet connection, despite my PC being on a high-speed Ethernet connection. I will be giving MightyText or Pulse SMS a try instead.
18 XI 2014: Now it's working again as good as it used to be. The only issue is that it keeps on disconnecting once in a while, but nothing is perfect. 15 VI 2016: I just discovered AirMirror in the options, great idea! It works perfectly in my tablet (NT8013) but sadly not in my phone (Mini S4). Nonetheless, this is a great addition. Keep up the good work! 15 II 2018: I stopped using thins app for a while, now that I am back I see that having the Airmirror on automatically drains my data, back in the day, data was consumed when transferring or moving contents and files, not in the Mirror. This is a huge back step, I liked to have my phone mirrored so I can check messages and calls without moving from my laptop, but now it's impossible.
AirMirror via wifi requires ROOTED phone? Limitation. I wish I knew how to root my Samsung Galaxy s3 mini.... I tried cyanogen 11 (i think it was), damn thing wouldn't boot past the new animated cyanogen boot screen. Anyhow it took me quite a while to realise (and then find) the correct stock rom, which needed to be installed with Odin. 🐨..... Update... I have now successfully successfully been able to root my phone
Well, I sure am glad I found this app. I've been skimping by with Cortana as a way to text, get app or call notifications and such. But I wasn't happy that it didn't show the text conversation. It was just send or reply. But seeing how much this app can do really changes how cool I thought the Cortana app was in that regard.
Excellent app. Log in on PC, log in on app and transfer files. Thats it. Worth paying just under £15 per year to transfer as much as you like to / from phone. I use it to transfer TV I have recorded that is not on catch up to my phone after converting on my PC using Wondershare software. Since Samsung messed up their own software which used to do this Airdroid is perfect and better alternative. Recommended and easy to use.
I am really worried about the security of this app. After my first install this app keeps on asking for same permissions over and over again. Also I noticed that the app keeps asking for permissions with every new advertisement it displays. Advertising companies gaining access to my phone?? Also on such a privacy and security critical application why do we have ads?
