Impeccably Connect Your Android and Computer

Control your Android from your computer with AirDroid

Three cheers for the inventor of the remote control. Soon enough you’ll be able to control everything in your home from your phone.

But first, let’s start with the phone itself. AirDroid is a free and absolutely essential app for any Android user; with it you can operate your phone or tablet (like the shiny new Nexus 7) right from your computer – no cords involved.

So as your phone sits in your pocket, you can sit at your computer and send and receive texts, make phone calls, and drag and drop photos and videos from one device to the other. Plus, it syncs your clipboard, ClipPick-style, so you can copy something on your computer and paste it on your phone.

But potentially most helpful of all, AirDroid can find, lock, and even wipe your phone at any time. You can even activate the camera and snap photos from miles away.

Now that’s remote control.
