Are you looking for a variant for qtADB? Maybe you were not even aware of the existence of the latter and are still torturing yourself using adb the old fashioned way. Well, if either of the above cases describes your situation, you will be happy to know that XDA member benzyniarz1 decided to go ahead and finish off his project. AndroidExplorer, as its name implies, will allow you to do pretty much everything you want to do as far as file management is concerned when you connect your device to your PC.

You can find more information in the application thread.
