    Awesome Drop

    Some of you probably know of this app already, but everytime I use it I'm amazed at how useful it really is. Awesome Drop (available free in the market) is a simple file transfer program to get files from your desktop to your android device without having to drag out the cables and mount to your computer. You open the program on your device, go to their website, type the code into your device, drag the files to the browser on your desktop and they are uploaded and then downloaded to the device. No fuss, no trouble.
    I use it all the time to push wallpapers, or kernels, etc....to my sd card.

    I have no interest in this program at all, I just like the simplicity of it and I use it all the time so I thought I would post it in case some have never tried it out.

    I just tried it - it works great! I'm glad you brought it up! My only question, is how do you actually close it? If I hit the back button, when I go back into it, I am still active. I went to task manager and it doesn't show up in my active apps. But if I go back to the website, it gives me a new pin number and I can't enter it because it is still active with the old number. Does that make sense?

    Okay, this might be a really stupid question, and I'm sorry if it is. But I tried Awesome Drop with my daughter. She is about 10-15 miles from me. She downloaded the app, and I gave her the code off my computer and she typed it in. I dropped a file, shouldn't it have gone to her phone? Does distance make a difference?

    It should go right to her phone if she typed the number in correctly. Distance doesn't matter because it goes to their server and then back down to your phone. When it works correctly you should see the upload bar showing progress on your end and she should see the download bar on her end progressing as well. Never thought about using it to share files with other people. Cool idea.

    Well thanks - but it's not a cool idea if it doesn't work. Lol. I have tried it several times - it won't upload to hers, but they upload right away to mine. I sent them an e-mail asking what the problem might be. Let me know if you get this to work, please! Lol
