    Does this article apply to Android Tablets as well? If so, why are articles usually written about Android "phones" instead of Android "devices"?

        i'm using Airdroid i failed to connect my device with my pc when my device is far away from my pc. is there something wrong with my general setting? my general setting pretty much looks like device name A51w, remote wake up "on", power saving mode "off", dim the screen when airmirror starts "off", keep screen awake "off", require confirmation for web lite "on", remote transfer for file transfer "always allow", and port number "auto". i saw the problem like this in Airdroid 2 causes by "push service". but in Airdroid 4 there's no "push service" button. how do i manage my device to keep connect with my pc though it's far away. please respond to my question as soon as possible. because i really love this app

    I might add that IP Webcam is also useful for Android phones that you don't use anymore. Install it on a phone and connect it to your WiFi and you have a permanent security monitor for you home. You can monitor it from your current phone with many apps.

    Instead of, I still prefer Lookout. You get lost phone features (make a noise, even when silent; access GPS and tell me where you are), you get some additional features, like when the battery gets below 5%, it turns on the GPS and sends out a "flare" so you will know where it was when it died ... because the battery ran out. So, even though you didn't realize it was lost and now the battery is dead, it still has a reminder of where it was.

    But, some of those features of sound pretty good, too!

    What about using MightyText to send and receive SMS messages when you aren't close to your phone?
