The name says it all AIRDROID – connect you DROID ( ANDROID MOBILE ) via AIR ( wi-Fi )….

AIRDROID is one of the best rated apps in the Android Market under Connectivity Category…. it helps to connect your Android Mobile over Wi-Fi to your PC. You can simply enable AIRDROID in your mobile and connect it to the same Wi-Fi network in which your PC is connected, open any browser and you can view your complete phone through it….

I have been using this since many months and the UI was excellent and very stable. Even large transfer of files was done very quickly ( The Speed of Transfer being almost equivalent to any USB transfer)…. The best part about this is you can even do Messaging via Browser.

 

AirDroid is available for free from the Android Market. It supports Android 2.1 and later. Android 4.0 isn’t as well supported at the moment, but AirDroid should update with improved support soon.

Launch the AirDroid app once it’s installed and tap Start to start the AirDroid server.

AirDroid tells you exactly what to do — plug the IP address into your web browser’s address bar.

 Once you’ve connected, you’ll see AirDroid’s main page, which contains links and statistics about your device. At the bottom right corner, you’ll see the Wi-Fi connection strength, bars of cellular coverage and battery level of your Android device.
