Remotely controlling your phone through your computer has a number of advantages. When the phone is lost, you can make it ring and find it, you can use your keyboard to type and send text messages, and more. Here to help you offer those features and a few bonus ones is a tool called PocketDo.

    Sounds interesting. I'll have to try. Could make texting while at computer easier. Wife is always loosing her iPhone. Will have to look to see if available for it. Or something similar.

    Although it's different from AirDroid I kind of prefer PocketDo. It doesn't require you to be on the same WiFi and it connects faster.

    What it lacks is access to other folders, but I guess you can always use Dropbox or similar. What's great about it is the tracking feature. Perfect in case you lose your phone/tablet or someone steals it. It doesn seem to use alot of battery power, but I guess that depend on the type of device and battery. I also appreciate the SpyCam feature. You can't really use it as a spy cam because the screen lights up and shows you that the camera is being used. So i asume not many users will feel this is a good feature.
    I also like the export SMS option. Useful if you're trying to clear your phone of old conversations but don't really want to lose that history.
