Transfer Music Wirelessly to Android Phone from PC (Computer)

imageHave you ever wished to auto sync the MP3 songs to your android phone? I faced the same problem when I had to auto sync my collection with my phone so that I don’t need to manually take care of this task. Recently I had the exact same need where I had to auto sync one of my Music folder with my android phone but I did not work to connect the wire every time. I also had ES Explorer software in android where I can wirelessly map my computer folder and then copy the new files or all files to the android folder, but this was a manual job and had to manually select the new files or music files in this case. I wanted an automated method which can do this task.

I searched online and found many options but I didn’t want to install a separate software as a service to do this job for me. It was not worth it, so while searching I got to know about this software called MyPhoneExplorer. It had amazing features of sending Messages from PC to syncing lots of content off the phone. When I explored I found that it also has the ability to sync any folder in PC to any folder on phone using Wi-Fi / Bluetooth / USB and more. This seemed to have solve my problem but wasn’t sure without the try.


I took the software and connected my phone after installing MyPhoneExplorer Client from Google Play Store. After that I selected the folder on the computer which had all my songs and then selected the folder on the phone where I wanted to copy the folder. Made it to auto-sync every time my phone is wirelessly connected to the PC, then the magic happened. All the new songs which are not there on the phone got auto synced using home Wi-Fi within a few seconds without the need of internet or wires at all.

Now I don’t need to worry about keeping my phone up-to-date with my collection of songs as and when I keep adding them on my PC in that folder. Do give it a try if you are facing the same issue and need to wirelessly sync all your songs / files over the LAN on to your phone with this amazing software.

Android Smart TV– Akai Smart Box (Quick Review)

smart_boxPresenting a way to make your normal TV a real expensive smart TV which does not cost a fortune. Android TVs are the new gadgets in market available from many companies these days. They are normally Palm sized and run on Android OS. They support Wireless internet, cable internet, sometimes Data Cards and HDMI output along with standard VGA output as well. Today we will talk about Akai’s new Smart TV called Smart Box. This is the latest product in town. I recently bought this on the occasion of Dipawali.

Let’s look at the amazing features of this beauty and then we will talk about its price and how it can be used and can act like an all in one device for various needs.

It has the following amazing features:

  • Android Ginger Bread - GB does not matter much because it’s not a phone or a tablet so no worries about ICS.
  • 1 GHz processor. – Really fast in multitasking, playing videos and browsing flash intense websites.
  • 1 GB RAM – This is one of the best features that unlike other devices which only offer 512MB RAM, this one offers 1GB of RAM which is more than enough for all your needs.
  • Multi Video Support – Due to its CPU and RAM combination you can play almost any video format available in the market. Say goodbye to selective video download or format conversion.
  • Internet – With Wi-Fi, Cable and Data card internet you have got various options to connect to the internet.
  • HDMI & Composite – It supports both HD and SD output which covers every TV on the planet.
  • Full HD support – Yes 1080 Full HD support. What else you need to watch your Full HD videos which you copied from your friends ;)
  • Hotspot – Convert your cable internet to Wi-Fi, yes it can act as a Wi-Fi Router to share the internet among multiple devices.
  • Google Play – With Google market supported out of the box you have the option to download any of the 7 lakh applications available on the store without the need to re-think about anything.

These were some of the many great practice features which you would be using in your day to day usage. Device is very compact, lightweight, piano black in color and runs only on 5V energy which means you can leave the device open all day long without the worry of huge power bills.

Some of the Usage Ideas which are clicking my mind at the moment are:

  • Media Center PC
  • Casual Gaming Device
  • Internet Browsing
  • Youtube / Online Movies Streaming Device
  • Overnight Downloading Device (Bit Torrent / Huge files) (5 Volts & No heating or sound)
  • DLNA Server (To stream movies / music / photos in the network)
  • Cheap Home NAS (Network Attached Storage) with the use of 4 USB ports at the back
  • FTP Server
  • Media Server
  • Print Server

Possibilities are endless with this device.

Below are some of the images of the device and how it looks out of the box. In the coming articles I will show you how you can change the default boring look of the device and convert it into some funky looking ICS type tablet with the help of apps. Feel free to leave the comments below for more details.

Cost of the device ₹ 6,500 /- some of the links from where it can be bought (look for discounts).
