AirDroid is one of the best examples of Android’s open nature working to the user’s advantage.

The idea is simple: access your Android’s files, documents, photos, music, ringtones, text messages, call logs and more, wirelessly from your desktop. It’s fast and extremely convenient, and makes managing your device so much easier than having to fumble for a USB cable — which, especially on a Mac, may not work properly.

AirDroid 2.0 upgrades the experience to include access to your phone’s camera from the web, as well as a “Find Your Phone” feature which, even if your phone is turned off, uses the last known GPS location of the device.

The on-device UI, which mirrors the web view, has been retooled, though the company has added an area for sponsored “Recommended” apps, much like Dolphin Browser.

If you’re interested in trying the 2.0 beta before it arrives on Google Play, make sure to let us know how you like it.

    WHY BB10 HAS 4.2″ DISPLAY ONLY???

      Because it is also geared towards business users and business users cannot walk into meetings having to deal with Android speccers who get p***s envy with everything that is larger.

      This was much more in-context when the prior comment was there :)

      Cuz Rim believes it’ll eventually turns big; that’s also what she said.

    I use Airdroid all the time since Macs handle Androids terribly. Great little app.

    Can’t register.. It just copies my name into all required fields and fails. Tried every registration method available.

    I have used the old version for a while, very nice app!

    AirDroid is the greatest app ever released for the platform. If I would suggest a company Google should acquire, it would be these guys. Build some kind of default desktop manager app for Android and you win!

    I had issues registering, but after I linked twitter, it worked.
