Android mobile devices have invaded the mobile handheld market in the last years and there are more and more programs that try to meet the users' needs and requirements. One of these is Droid Explorer, a simple application designed to simplify the process of managing rooted Android devices.
Support for many devices and managing phone contents
Although it supports a wide variety of devices (e.g. HTC, Samsung, Google Nexus, Acer Liquid etc.), the software might not detect the latest Android versions, so it is better to check the compatibility list before using it.
The program uses the Android SDK to allow viewing and organizing the device contents. In addition to this, you need to have the corresponding OEM drivers and Busybox installed and the USB debugging feature enabled on your rooted device.
Automatically detect device and manage APKs
As many utilities from this category, it automatically detects the connected device, allowing you to perform basic file management operations. Yet the program does not limit to that. It provides install and uninstall support for APK files and enables you to reboot the Android device in standard or recovery mode.
Built-in command shell and take screenshots
There are other features that this software brings you: there is a debug console and a command shell. You can use SQLite explorer to structure data storage, while the package manager allows you to view a list of the available applications on your Android and install or uninstall them directly from your PC.
Another advantage is the possibility to copy and auto-apply updates to the Google mobile applications found on your Android. Using Droid Explorer, you can take landscape or portrait screenshots of your smartphone and save them to your computer.
Providing multiple device support, Droid Explorer offers you an easy way to manage your phone. It can be used not only for file access and transfers, but also for application updates and personalizing your Android device.
