AirDroid Review: How to Sync Android Notifications with Mac

AirDroid Review

Sometimes my Android phone is a bit far from my reach and I have received an “important” SMS that I need to access in 30 seconds1. Instead of having to go grab my phone from the other room, unlock it, open the SMS app, read the code, memories and then type it on my MacBook. I have found another, much easier way to do all of this right from my MacBook using an app called AirDroid that allows me to Sync Android Notifications with Mac as well as having full access to my Android device.

Meaning that as soon as that SMS is received on my Android phone, I will get a notification on my MacBook. I can copy part of it like the TFA code or reply to it if it’s a person I’m talking with.
