Android App: AirDroid

This cool app, lets you manage your Android phone from your computer, wirelessly. This includes file transfers and updates. It has a much better file manager than I've been able to find for the phone itself. You will have access to most of your phones functions. Just make sure your phone and your computer are on the same network. This is normally done by connecting to your network wirelessly from your phone.

Then run the App from your phone. It will give you your IP address, a port number and then a 6 character code. You then open your browser and login to that IP address and port. You will enter something like: and then the 6 digit password that was generated. Now, you'll have your phone available inside your browser on the desktop.

I normally use it for file transfer.
