I spend most of my day working at my PC. But I’ll occasionally feel the need to download an app on my Android, respond to a text message, and do other phone-related activities. I don’t type nearly as fast on my phone as I do on my computer keyboard, so it sometimes feels like I’m wasting my time.
But a recently released app/software combo called SnapPea allows you to easily manage your Android over your computer. You can send text messages, download apps, and do all of the other things you need to do on your phone.
Yes, I know Android phone management software is nothing new. I’ve used Keis, which is Samsung’s remote control software, and it does the job fairly well. But SnapPea is in a whole other category. It’s like Keis but with a more colorful, easy-to-use interface.
