I had used this app quite a while back.I was reminded of it today as there was an article about " how to manage your android from your laptop".So you basically need an airdroid account, and then you can access all the files of your phone,apps etc, and do things like (un)installing apps,sending files etc from your airdroid account in your laptop's browser.So..why I uninstalled it,despite it being quite solid. For any purpose, air droid must run in the background for any of the the function.The phone tracking feature is quite obsolete because if you don't turn on airdriod and data on your phone, it can't trace. But without some serious Tasker kungfu it's quite difficult to trace your phone when your data is off anyway.
