Easily Connect Your Devices over WiFi with ConnectAir
A PC and your Android device can work great as a pair. Writing SMS messages and browsing files from your PC is much more convenient than using the small screen on your Android device. Unfortunately, a PC requires some external application or webapp to establish a connection to your phone through WiFi.
If you are looking for a platform that will work on every PC operating system and is able to communicate with your PC, you should take a look at ConnectAir by XDA Senior Member svprm. ConnectAir allows you to connect Android devices to Linux, Windows, and Mac OS machines and perform some basic things like reading SMS messages and browsing files.
Android to PC isn’t its only feature, as ConnectAir also allows you to connect two phones or two PCs. The feature list is long and contains many interesting possibilities like sharing files, viewing the phone book, and much more. To properly run this app, you need to download a client on your PC, as well as an application on your mobile device.
More information about ConnectAir can be found in the application thread, so go there to learn more.
