AirDroid Is Coming To iOS And You Can Sign Up For The Beta Right Now

Popular Android device management and remote access tool AirDroid is on its way to a competing platform.

Although the name and inherent flexibility of the all-in-one remote access solution screams Android, it seems the team behind AirDroid has finally decided to make the jump to iOS, with a recent announcement being sent out to its registered users over email. The announcement was accompanied by an invitation to the unreleased iOS variant’s private beta, which is slated for release sometime within the current week.

Update: The app is now available to download on the App Store.

Apart from a tentative release window for the private beta, there is as yet no other info for the iOS version of the app. Considering the relatively inflexible nature of Apple’s mobile OS, it would be safe to assume the tool won’t be bringing its entire repertoire of features to the platform. Although, if the developers manage to port to iOS even half of what the Android app offers, the app will be one of a select few rich device management solutions available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

On Android, AirDroid allows users to wirelessly access and control various aspects of their devices from their computers using dedicated desktop clients for Windows and Mac, or the AirDroid web app. Features include notification and screen mirroring along with full remote control using mouse and keyboard, the ability to send and receive messages from the desktop client, remote access to call logs and contacts, a backup solution for device photos and videos, and effortless wireless file transfer as well as clipboard sharing between device and PC.

The featurelist doesn’t end there. There is much more on offer in addition to a slew of premium features and perks, such as remote camera control and support for multiple devices.

If you’re an iOS user and some or all of those features tickle your fancy, head on over to this Google Form to sign up for the private TestFlight beta right now.
