Most of you are probably familiar with AirDroid, the Swiss army knife of Android utilities. The desktop app is pretty great too, especially if you sit at a computer desk all day surrounded by phones and tablets like some kind of complete loser professional gadget blogger. The latest update for the Windows and OS X companion app adds compatibility with a couple of social services, new language options for Russian and Portuguese (the kind from Portugal – the Brazilian dialect was already there), and the usual bug fixes.
If you use the Kik or Telegram instant message services, you can now respond to messages directly from the notification, just like standard texts. The desktop program now has an option to hide the content from SMS notifications – handy if you use it at work and you’d rather keep your conversations private. OS X users can also mute all notifications when running another app in full screen mode, which is now enabled by default. (Sorry Windows users, I don’t think Microsoft’s OS supports that behavior.)
