When your smartphone runs out of room, it can be a real pain to get all of your photos, documents and videos transferred over to your computer.

But don't bother fumbling with cables to sync the files on your computer and your smartphone. AirDroid lets you import everything from your phone wirelessly, even video, music and apps!

Just log into the app and load a webpage on your computer. The page encrypts the connection between your smartphone and computer so no one can steal what you send.

Transfers aren't the only thing AirDroid can handle. Once you've synced your device with your computer, you can even send or receive texts from your PC without ever touching your phone! You can also edit contacts, set new ringtones, view your Android's screen in real time and take screenshots, see through the lens of your device's front and back cameras, and share content back and forth.
