Take full control of your Android device through your PCs roomy display

AirDroid is an application that makes sure all your information between Android and other operating systems is safe. With this all the data transferred between computer and Android is done safely. It also does file management and more. Its name explains it all since it does its work through air and not through wire connection. In Aidroid there is the host and the guest, where the host is the phone and the guest or client is the receiver. The data on phone is exposed to the guest and the guest can then access videos, music, messages, contacts and more freely. The client can even access instant messaging clients like Whatsapp and line, referred to as the third party apps. This app can handle all functions but the remote camera lags while communicating with higher resolution cameras. Since everything has its ads and dons, Airdroids data transfer is very fast. To transmit sensitive private data, Airdroid uses HTTPS which is HTTP secure. Not only that, you can also remotely send ringtones either from client or host. Also it allows one to directly send text to the clipboard without first saving it. What is needed for this app is an Android version 22 and over, a 1GHz processor and space of 512 MB RAM.

Airdroid is a hardy app and highly recommended to enjoy the all-in-one Android to computer data transfer. This is done in a fast, simple and secure mode.


  • Notifications are sent to client in real time through notification mirror.
  • Supports all formats and sizes of files.


  • Low resolutions resulting to lagging of cameras.

AirDroid: A must have weapon in every Android user's arsenal!

AirDroid is a must have weapon in every Android user’s arsenal. It’s a powerful transfer medium which lets you forget about inter-platform restrictions. Now you can share files between anyone around you irrespective of the Smartphone they use.

It’s a simple host-client setup. Sender pushes a locally hosted website onto receiver’s web-browser just like a host. Receiver opens it via mutually shared WiFi connection to play the role of client. The website acts as a medium which exposes all data on host device to the receiver. Receiver is granted access even to the file system so that he can share, delete or alter almost any file he sees.

It is obvious that unless sender takes necessary precaution, he may have to suffer privacy loss or data leakage. Therefore, it is recommended to use this application only among the ones you can trust. I use this application to transfer movies from computer to my tablet. AirDroid is hardly penetrable due to military grade encryptions so that it is completely safe when used among your own devices. Rooted devices can even enjoy complete screen mirroring.


AirDroid is a great mirroring application when it is used with proper precautions. Even though there are strong security measures, you should keep an eye on the receiver’s screen. AirDroid performs really fast as the company claims. Overall, I can’t live without this small app! I recommend it to everyone. I rate it 7.9 out of 10!


  • High speed data transfer possible
  • Military grade encryption to prevent penetration
  • Intuitive user interface makes it newbie friendly
  • Supports screen mirroring on rooted phones


  • Exposes all data on phone to receiver
  • Website is not at all responsive

AirDroid 3 is a handy free application that blurs the line between Android and other operating systems. It is the third instalment of renowned AirDroid ecosystem that lets you take the total control of the device via your PC’s roomy display. Remote access to the phone data is no more tangled in clumsy wires.

It is not a run-of-the-mill smartphone PC suite utility. It’s an all-in-one solution for Computer-Android data transfer, screen mirroring, file management, remote app access and much more! Client side software is not a must for its functioning, and that is one of the highlighted features. You can find this revolutionary piece of tech listed on ‘recommended’ columns of leading technology websites such as XDA, PCWorld, BGR, Phandroid, Gizmodo, LifeHacker, CNET, etc.

Why AirDroid?

As the name suggests, it doesn’t shackle you with wires, provided that you should be able to establish a Wi-Fi connection between devices. The technology is can be comprehensibly explained by taking the configuration of ADSL modem as an example. As in the case of modem, there’s a website stored locally (phone acts as host), which can be accessed by inputting the IP Address – Passcode combination (“http://192.168.xx.xx:8888) in client’s web browser. Data transfer is facilitated by the means of it.

The app exposes almost every data in your phone to the client. The client is granted permission to access contacts, messages, photos, music, videos, ringtones, and camera without notifying the host. Even some third-party apps like WhatsApp, Line and WeChat, can be accessed in this manner. Notification Mirror is active all the time and notifications will be automatically sent to the client in real-time.

You can import and export any file (including ‘.apk’ files) between host and client irrespective of the file format and size. Large files will be automatically archived into ‘.zip' format. There’s option to send folders with any number of subfolders directly and conserve its structure. The clipboard of the host is made editable to the client so that plain text can be transferred without saving it into files.

Performance and data security

The app could flawlessly handle all functions except the remote camera, where we could find noticeable lag in communicating with higher resolution Smartphone cameras (Test device – Sony Xperia Z3). The problem was not that significant with Cameras up to 8 Mega Pixels (Test device – LG Nexus 5). AirDroid gave satisfactory results in our data transfer speed test also. It could transfer a 750MB file in roughly 54 seconds (average speed of 14MBps).

AirDroid uses HTTPS (HTTP Secure) to transmit sensitive private data such as SMS and account credentials safely. E2EE (End-to-end encryption) technology is adopted to take the security level up a notch. The app could pass all penetration tests conducted by Rapid7 as per the article appeared on developer’s website on December 17, 2014. They’ve curbed JSNOP (JavaScript Object Notation with Padding) method of sharing since the March 2015 update as a patch to the grievous authentication method flaw detected by Bishop Fox security lab. In short, AirDroid team is vigilant to deliver optimum protection to your data! However, we advise you not to connect AirDroid through unsafe browser and public WiFi networks.

System Requirements

Before plunging to the download button, make sure that your device can run it!

  • Android version: 2.2 and above
  • Processor: 1 GHz
  • RAM: 512 MB
  • Note: Certain facilities like AirMirror requires root access. For better functionality, it is recommended to use Windows or Mac client software from the developer. You can download it from developer website for free. Instead of IP plus passcode combination, you can also use to access AirDroid.


Our tests revealed that AirDroid is better equipped, focused and connected as the developer claims. It outdoes any other remote access application on the market in terms of handiness and performance. Laggy remote camera and lack of responsive web design are the only cons we could find in it. Overall, the app is worth a try!
