Yes, you read that right. Your Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone just got smarter with the help of a free app called AirDroid. You can now very easily download large number of high resolution images stored on the phone, stream MP3 and HD videos to your Windows PC browser. I’ll spare you the introduction to the App itself and jump right into the app’s screenshots — nothing more convincing than a visual tease.
“The AirDroid Android app should be compatible with most Android devices running Android 2.1 or later. The Web Desktop should be compatible with most modern web browsers, including IE 8 or later, Chrome 12 or later, Firefox 3.6 or later, Safari 5.0 or later. Support for mobile browsers, like Safari on iPad, is experimental.” — AirDroid

Instead of the popular magnetic case design they released for the Apple iPhone 4 this design clips the lens firmly to any compatible camera phone. I couldn’t resist the staff’s suggestion to give it a go on my S3 seeing how incredibly difficult it is to find a decent wide angle lens that’s made for this phone.

Those of you itching to know what Jelly Bean on the S3 looks like, here are the vital screen shots to pique your interest.
