Did You Learn ADB? Great, Now Lets Keep Things Simple with Droid Explorer
Not too long ago, we posted a guide on how to use ADB, some of the commands, etc. Understanding the concepts is always nice as it helps you see beyond certain aspects of development. However, for people that are not keen on knowledge about development, the easier solutions come into play. With this in mind, XDA member iloveandroid pointed us to a very nice Windows application called Droid Explorer. This will essentially do everything that you can do with ADB, but without you having to memorize every command. This program is easy and convenient for people that are more used to the “drag and drop” concept to move things around. Not only can this app move stuff around, but it will also allow you to install, flash, delete, and more.
It is currently on a much higher version than the one quoted in this thread and you can expect a lot of bugs to be fixed at this point. So, give it a go and see if you find this easier than using ADB.
There is something for windows that is way easier ABD, all I know this is only for Windows. Mac users you’ll have to download Crossover (http://crossover-mac.en.softonic.com/mac) first then download Droid Explorer
Here’s are the features of Droid Explorer
You can find more information in the application thread.
