android logoLet's say that you want to have access to your Android device through your computer's browser. Here comes AirDroid. AirDroid is a fast, free app that lets you wirelessly manage and control your Android device from a web browser Over-The-Air. For AirdDroid to work your Android phone or tablet must be on the same wireless network as your laptop or desktop. So install AirDroid from Android market and let's see how to use it.

Once installed open AirDroid on your Android device and tap Start. The web address (looks like http://192.168.xxx.xxx:8888) to visit will be revealed, and a new Dynamic Password will be generated or the Predefined Password will be displayed.

Open your favourite web browser to visit the web address above. Enter the Dynamic Password or Predefined Password from the previous step and click Login.

You'll login to the AirDroid Web Desktop.

This is a great program.
It's also about as easy to use as it can be.

Thank you
