I am using HTC 8s Window 8 Phone, before this phone I was using an Android phone and am very attached and used to using this app called "AirDroid"

AirDroid is a fast ,free app that lets you wirelessly manage&control your Android Device from a web browser Over-The-Air.

So my question is, is there any similar app for Windows 8 Phone ? How can i achieve a similar kind of usage with Windows 8 Phone ?

Any thoughts ?

After reading about some of the things AirDoid can do, all I can say is Windows Phone apps are much more strictly sandboxed. I think the closest app you could possibly find would only allow you access to your pictures and music. –  Louis Feb 5 '13 at 9:18
    
yes I want to transfer music. Do you know of any such apps that does that. –  Yasser Feb 5 '13 at 9:29
    
Unfortunately... That Last "poster", doesn't know what they are advising others to do, especially when a serious question about ALTERNATIVES for AirDroid on Windows phone 7, since there was/is NOTHING found in that forum about one! I too, am looking for an alternative to AirDroid on WP7 and so far, THERE IS NONE! The ONLY thing is for us to use the ZUNE (the Windows way!) App, but it requires you to attach your WP7 phone, with a USB cable to your PC! –  user1279 Apr 19 '13 at 0:25

You don't need a 3rd party app for that. Just synch music from the cloud. Either SkyDrive or Xbox Music - both will do the job. It's not most intuitive, but perfectly doable.

Sorry, I don't know. I don't have Windows Phone 8 phone nor ever used memory cards with a phone (I try to buy phones that meet my requirements right off the box, so don't know much about SD cards in phones at all). –  MarcinWolny Feb 5 '13 at 13:37
    
ok sure.. no problem, thank you for your answer –  Yasser Feb 5 '13 at 13:44

There are many things you can do with your phone without actually touching it. The windowsphone website is great for that, but if you really want to actually use your phone remotely, there are a few alternatives to AirDroid. I use AlternativeTo when I have a question like this. It doesn't let me down.

"Esay transfer" for windows phone. Even though not so interactive as Airdroid, but serves the purpose –  Abhinav Oct 15 at 18:26

If you want to upload music to your phone over wifi from your computer (like Airdroid does), you can use Music Drop.
