Managing Your Android with AirDroid

Hi Frank

Thanks for reminding me about this application, I've used it in the past to transfer and manage data on my mobile but as it's something I need to do regularly I had forgotten about it. Definitely something that is useful if sometimes a little fiddly to get going initially.

You are most welcome.

The main irritant I've encountered is that, after a reboot, it reverts to the default "copy to" directly, whereas I want to put my podcasts in the Music directory so the player application sees them easily. Once I got into the habit of double-checking the "copy to" directory setting, I kept it whipped into shape.

I must say, the maintainers have improved it over the several years I've been using it.

Run naked through the googleplex - haha

Loved that comment at 15 mins 7 secs, both because it is funny and because it is brings the point home.
