Droid Manager Given Major Overhaul and New Functionality

A little over a year ago, we took a look a Windows-based Android management utility created by XDA Recognized Developer DeepUnknown known as Droid Manager. Back then, the multi-purpose Android utility stood out by offering the ability to perform quite a few ADB-based tasks quickly and easily.

Since then, DeepUnknown has been hard at work, dramatically improving his application to bring in new features and more. One of the most interesting new features is Nandroid backup management, where you can easily create a new backup, list current backups, and delete existing backups. You can now also backup and restore installed apps, view boot animations prior to applying them, share files and folders via WiFi, and much more. The new version has even gained the ability to send any file on the connected device to your PC, provided that the included helper application is installed on the Android device. Finally, the utility has been given a completely new UI, in order to best present these new features.

If you’ve been looking for a general purpose Android management utility for your Windows PC that does almost any ADB-related task you could want, head over to DeepUnknown’s utility thread and give Droid Manager a shot.
