I am using HTC 8S Windows Phone. Previously, 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 a similar app for Windows Phone 8? How can I achieve a similar kind of functionality with Windows Phone 8?

  • 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. Feb 5 '13 at 9:18
  • yes I want to transfer music. Do you know of any such apps that does that. 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!

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

  • will they copy the music to sd card ? i use HTC 8s and have very limited internal memory (4GB) Feb 5 '13 at 13:34

    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). Feb 5 '13 at 13:37
  • ok sure.. no problem, thank you for your answer Feb 5 '13 at 13:44
  • @Yasser You should have the option to save music to SD card, or use the Files app to move it to your SD.

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.


  • That only seems to offer other alternative Android software, and not for other platforms, like Windows Phone?

There is an now an app like airdroid for windows phone 8, it's called Remote Device Manager

  • "Esay transfer" for windows phone. Even though not so interactive as Airdroid, but serves the purpose

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