AirDroid lets you control your Android device with a desktop app
The desktop app in version 3 features a clean interface that allows for simple file transfers, reading and composing text messages, checking call logs and notifications from all apps, including those it doesn’t support natively.
This version also includes a feature called AirMirror, which lets you see and control your Android device right on your desktop, using your mouse to tap on buttons and fields and your keyboard to type. This means that you can respond to WhatsApp messages from your PC, without having to pick up your phone. However, you’ll need to have rooted your device for this to work (unless yours is AirDroid-certified).
While this is most definitely a step in the right direction, there’s still a way to go before AirDroid’s desktop app catches up to its Web-based counterpart, which allows users to browse their devices’ files, use the camera, locate them on a map, check out photos, take screenshots, change ringtones and more.
