    contrary to other comments that Airdroid is not available for Linux.. it is actually. HOWEVER, it exists only as an App from the Google Chome/Chromium webext app stores. (Personally i usee Chromium over Chrome, what you pick is no bettere or worse really.)not only is it available to US Linux fan boys (and Girls!!! ) it is also available to those of us who are dirty traitors who happen to also have iOS on hand... So yes you can also include your iPhone/Pad etc... CHEERIO MATES!
