AirMore vs Airdroid
The difference between AirMore and Airdroid is not huge by functionality wise but yes performance wise a lot. I have used the both Android and AirMore but at the end of the day have uninstalled the Air More because of connectivity issues.
Both the file transfer apps interface is quite good and almost similar, however, the Airdroid is a bit more interactive and intuitive as compared to the AirMore.
The AirMore can use remotely without any data transfer restriction and if you want the same thing in the Airdroid then on the remote connection you have a Remote data quota, 200MB in the free version after that you need to Go for the premium version. But locally there is no limitation for Airdroid too.
Yes, there are few extra tools which Air More offers like Video converter, Video recording, Audio recording and more. But what is the point of having tool when the connectivity is not good even locally over the hotspot? The issue I faced is that it disconnected automatically in a couple of seconds which makes it totally crap for me.
So, what we suggest if you want to opt between the Air More and Airdroid then go for the Airdroid App because of good connectivity and useful tools options such as PC keyboard input to your Android phone and more.
People also asking questions like– Is AirMore app is safe?
So, the answer of this question would be YES, the Air More is completely safe but what is the point of using a which is exactly same as the Airdroid and also I don’t when they are going to resolve the connectivity issues.
Does AirMore use internet data?
Yes, the Air More app uses the Internet data, if you are connecting it remotely to some PC which is not on your local WiFi or hotspot connection. For example, if you are in office and want to access the phone that in your home then it will consume the Internet data for any transfer or Music playing.
Soe here are the ways to use the Air More on the iPhone and Android smartphones using Windows 10 or Linux PCs including the Mac.
