I frequently play with my Android devices and usually use an Android toolkit. So, I’ve tried it on PC (haven’t tested on Linux or Mac) and it’s doing a pretty good job and works as advertised. Most of the features in the Droid PC Suite work as expected but I couldn’t get some of them to function properly. Basic functions like app manager, file manager, build.prop editor, screenshots/screen recorder, performance stats, reboot menu, and backup/restore worked flawlessly. However, I couldn’t get the bypass security option to work on any of my devices. But that’s an experimental feature, and it’s not a big deal to me.
