Getting files from your desktop to your Android phone can be a right pain in the derriere. Thankfully, there are a few solid (and free) utilities in the Android Market to help you along. We’ve already had a look at one such app—Dashwire’s Awesome Drop— and now we’re turning our attention to Angelo Schiavone’s PushDoc.
Both applications synced well, though I tended to think PushDoc was slightly faster. PushDoc also had a prettier interface, though the Klingon simplicity of AwesomeDrop was every bit as functional. However, PushDoc just couldn’t compete with the “It’s magic!” simplicity of Awesome Drop’s set-up. The latter requires no java files or IP hunting, and really is a wonder to behold. The interface isn’t as smooth, but when you’re pressed for time, Awesome Drop is still the way to go.
Since simplicity and ease-of-use are the name of the game, Awesome Drop ultimately wins out. The app is much easier to set-up than PushDoc, and provides the same service for a little less pain. However, PushDoc still shows a lot of promise, as its set-up is the only current drag. With a few updates, the app could easily best any other syncing utility on the Market.
