  3. It works over mobile information and data and is absolutely free and open for all.

Download, Installation and setting up of AirDroid 2 beta

  1. Go to http://airdroid.com/invite/airdroid_v2.apk after starting and launching the web browser on the android device, after which the APK file will get downloaded to the android device. In case you are getting any sort of warning or massage while downloading the file then please remember to permit the downloading of the file.
