There is no doubting the fact that Android devices have grown in popularity in the last few years. If you are not an Android user, there's a chance that you are surrounded by friends and colleagues who are active users of one Android device or even the couple of ones. Lots of people are drawn to Android devices because of their huge affordability and because they allow easy customization. Others simply cannot do without its multi-tasking ability as well as its seamless integration with Google's services.

It's not too difficult to imagine the possibility of remotely accessing your Android device right from your computer. Maybe your phone is one that is not easily accessible, connected to a computer in a different room, or you require a help of a specialist to fix your phone remotely. Perhaps you are at work and happen to leave your phone with valuable data at home, and the only way to retrieve it would be connect the device remotely. Or maybe you have a lot of text to type and or you just need a larger screen with which to work. Fortunately, it's easy to access android phones from PC remotely.
