AirDroid: New Logo Announcement

AirDroid's new logo is here!

During the past 5 years, we have evolved a lot with our users and stayed ahead of the digital trend. Constant revisit to improve our user experience on the details, ie. HD Airmirror and spell check, has made AirDroid better bit by bit.
As a boutique (and geeky) team who believes in technology should make life easier, we see you as our like minded fellows, which is why we always listen closely to users’ voice. This was what defined us when we first started.

AirDroid always listens closely to users' voice.

The delightful achievements

Looking back, we have made a great deal of progress without noticing it.
We have grown from a simple cross-screen management tool to a true multiscreens manager to provide a one-stop app to all.
We have made AirDroid more of a total solution by adding features such as Screen Record and Nearby Invitation.
We have also shown our devotion on “easy, fast and secure” by improving encryption and the functionalities of existing feature such as P2P hotspot file transferring and AirCloud to make multi-screens management more delightful and less hassle.

5 years on, we are proud to say that while staying true to our roots, we have become more complete because everyone of you has stayed with us all along!

To sync with what we have achieved and where we are determined to go, we decided to give AirDroid a new look start with a new logo (yes, it is just a start!). A logo not just to reflect who we are and all the progresses we have made together, but also to show our determination to continue building a delightful app as we have always wanted.

New Logo reflects new phase of AirDroid.

Looking forward with the new look

In the process of deconstructing our logo, we take the chance to revisit our vision and to reassure our core spirit will continue be carried on in the new phase of AirDroid.

4logo%e5%b1%95%e7%a4%ba-resize

Inspired by our long accompanied AirDroid aeroplane, we transform it into a much lighter and more forge ahead design as the embodiment of our characteristics.
As we extending our services across screens and see no limit, we adjust the colour and logo that is adaptable and will look great on every screen. While making it more concise and approachable, we make sure we keep the precious character of fun which has kept our novel ideas flown by keeping our paper plane as our symbol.
Carrying out our identity, the new logo also represents that it coordinates screens better than ever just like the plane soaring freely over the horizon without compromising the app’s approach of what we determine to bring to our users.

A new chapter of AirDroid.

AirDroid ‘s New chapter

Whooshing through the sky in quality and style, the chic logo plays for AirDroid’s outlook towards future and the enduring ultimate goal- to delight your multi-screens life.
It is just a beginning of our new chapter, we cannot have come this far without all of your feedback and support. The new AirDroid is ready for an easier, faster and more secure aviation to take you across screens freely, it will also keep working on allowing you to gain back more control of all your devices and so as your life.
So, ride on!

    Still waiting for a Linux client…

    • https://www.airdroid.com AirDroid

      Hi, we are still developing feasible possibility. As we AirDroid provide a total solution, like all the features we have added in the past year, we want to make sure every additional has perfect compatibility to offer you brilliant experience. We are still carefully evaluating it, so stay tuned, we will not hide it when it is ready! =)

    • Joeffel Faelnar

      Why? Airdroid is perfectly fine with the web app.

      • Philippe Boyd

        Then why is there a Windows and Mac app then if Airdroid is perfectly fine on the web?

        • Joeffel Faelnar

          I don’t know. I’ve been using the web app for years and I’ve never had any problems with it. I actually prefer it more than a desktop client since I’d like my apps to be in the cloud if possible.

          • Adam

            I like being able to get notifications without having a full blown (bloated) web browser running all the time. That, and it’s not typical for web browsers to run as as a service or in a hidden system-tray type of mode. I don’t need a UI or a dedicated web browser tab 99% of the time, just the notifications from a lean app running in the background.

            That being said, when I do use the UI, the web one is far superior than the Windows app. I have lots of little issues with the Windows app, and the notifications are far from perfect (seems more like bugs than anything else).

            Perhaps a better solution (for all platforms) is to have a light-weight notifier app (similar to gmail notifier or something) that just launches a browser to the web UI when any complex action is required. +1 for Linux client!

          • Betty from AirDroid

            umm @adam_plocher:disqus what function do you need/use the most? IM? calls notification? or else?

      • Pratik DasGupta

        One reason not to use the web version is that Google Chrome reports that the Airdroid website is not secure. I’m not a techie and therefore can’t provide specifics.

        • Joeffel Faelnar

          Never happened to me.

        I get app notifications so I don’t need to worry about email filters. Anyway, I do second the Linux client. As I am looking forward to using Linux as my mainstream OS when it gets sufficient developer support (I run it on a second computer to keep up to date), I would like to have this capability without keeping a browser open at all times. Also, I think perhaps the ability to answer phone calls and talk through your computer would be a nice feature. As well as being able to track your phone in case it gets stolen, and lock it out of features. I know this isn’t Lookout, Avast or any other security app, but with what it can do already, I see very good potential for it to develop into one. Something to think about sometime. I think it’d work very well. I keep track of everything my phone does on its own, and if I don’t like something it’s doing, I know and can go in to do something about it with this. Also, when I left my phone at work overnight on accident, I could still use it thorough this. So it’s a rather useful thing to have. Keep up the good work on it.

        • Betty from AirDroid

          Try “Find Phone”! I have a goldfish memory, always left my phone somewhere…. it has been useful to me! Try it! 😉

    • JoeR

      That’s because not a single link in the email actual was for airdroid. The email came from amazon web services and the links were all goo.gl shortened. Why in the world would you need to shorten hyperlinks? Even the link to this blog had the actual URL as the text (blog.airdroid.com), but the hyperlink was to a goo.gl link.

      • http://OmarMohsen.com/ Omar Mohsen

        Because they need to track and analysis .. how many clicks and from where 🙂
        That’s it.

    After initially loving Airdroid, I stopped using it years ago for the sole reason of lack of support for Linux. To me this is hardly the total solution it claims to be, for Linux users are excluded from al but its most basic features.

    • Betty from AirDroid

      Hey @disqus_xsBTQFkBtf:disqus, I love that you’re still keeping up with us! thumbs up to that!
      I wonder though, I can see it might be a bit annoying to keep a tab open, but it is equipped with more features than PC client. WHY our fellow linux users are reluctant to use web.airdroid.com? any thoughts?

      • Aerion

        Hi Betty, thanks for the reply!

        Well, there are a number of reasons why I prefer a desktop client over a web client, in no particular order:

        1. I don’t necessarily have a web browser open all the time.

        2. When I do have a browser open, and have many open applications, the taskbar starts to stack windows that belong to the same application, making switching between windows a pain. Instead of simply being able to just click the Chromium icon on the taskbar to switch to the browser, I have to either click the Chromium task and select the right window from the stack, or hover over the Chromium task and pick the right thumbnail. They’re not easy to identify, as all these windows carry the Chromium icon.

        I already have a minimum of four Chromium windows open (two Chromium profiles (one personal, one business), Hangouts and WhatsApp Web), so I don’t want to add even more windows for AirDroid and other web apps. The same problem applies to switching between open windows using ALT-TAB.

        For the same reasons I’m desperate for a proper Hangouts and WhatsApp Web desktop client, and I use Nixnote instead of the Evernote web app, and Thunderbird instead of web mail.

        3. Proper system tray and notification support, without having to run a resource hungry browser in the background.

        4. I don’t want to feel like a second-rate citizen. If a web client is good enough for Linux users, why do Windows and Mac users get a desktop client? With cross-platform toolkits such as Qt or GTK. there is no reason why AirDroid could not create a multi-platform desktop client. If Skype and VirtualBox (Qt) and Gimp, Inkscape and Pidgin (GTK) can do it, AirDroid can too.

        5. When browsers crash (and let’s face it, they do), I lose my AirDroid session.

        6. As you’ve already indicated, it’s annoying to have to keep a tab open just for AirDroid. I used to use WhatsApp web in Chromium, and pinned the tab, but it just wasn’t practical when working in, say, LibreOffice, a message comes in, first having to switch to Chromium and then having to switch to the pinned WhatsApp tab. I’m now using WhatsChrome, at least that gives the illusion of a dedicated app, much like Hangouts.

        I hope this helps explain why people keep asking for a Linux AirDroid desktop client.

        The simple fact that people are constantly coming up with either third party clients (Pidgin has added rudimentary support for Hangouts), or wrappers for web applications (WhatsChrome) clearly demonstrates the desire for separate clients, rather than browser based apps. It’s the same reason why people install apps on their phones and tablets, instead of using mobile sites. They works better and are less cumbersome.

        • Betty from AirDroid

          Hi @disqus_xsBTQFkBtf:disqus,

          Thanks for your detailed reply, this does help us discuss internally.

          You see, all apps and softwares you have mentioned above are big names with loads of tech guys behind, this is not how we work here now.
          And I don’t accept putting our Linux users are second- rate citizens, because every user is our like minded fellow so we listen to every voice carefully to make AirDroid as ideal as possible. I think you can see that from our communication channels. We might not be able to reply to everyone but we literally take down notes of every suggestion (yes, EVERY SINGLE ONE!)Although we only have very limited sources, we work smarter to make things happen!

          Now, back to our topic, here is what we will do, we have gone through all the possibilities and thinking of some options. For the next step, we will contact our linux users to dig into details to see if our solutions can help and which features should be prioritise.

          Our team is looking for how to best implement your and other linux users ideas, and trying to best serve all linux users as well as none-linux users, within our capability of course. 😉

          If it is okay, I will have the team contact you when we are to take the above action?

          You know your voice matter 😉

          Betty

    The logo has a simple problem. There are two elements that compete for our attention. The arrow and the two “r”s. The arrow is fine; the “r”s are horrid, peeking out and over, seemingly seeking attention. Fix it or deal with the boos.

  • Minh Hanu

    nice

  • http://paulokenobi.com.br Paulo Kenobi

    I see two problems:
    1) Thinking about a timeline, the arrow or “plane” looks like it is coming back. To make a better impression the arrow should point to the right, forward, to infinity, and not to the past.
    2) The “r” is clearly disproportionate, that because he is not following the line height of the letters in lower case, but is the same size as the uppercase letters. And there seems no reason for it, because it does not give continuity rm anything.

      Since you have a really cute gumball face (and I love Gumball!), I shall reply you first. In AirDroid, we do have web.AirDroid.com working on Linux which is equipped with more features than our PC client, I would be very curious the reason you as well as other Linux fellas want Linux client instead?

      • Vandrak

        Because first reason i want a directly linux client for my pc. MacOs and Windows has client, we have deserve too

  • Flow

    Will there be a UI Update too? I’m hoping that the Android app gets a revamp (or dark mode) and the web client icons become circular for unifromity and hoping the lag when screen mirrroring is reduced, or a way to send a link to the device for it to open. Apart from that, this app is flawless.

    • Betty from AirDroid

      Hey @disqus_4Yarq4Qegx:disqus… for the first question… we cannot tell you just yet, but well… I said nothing ;P
      Now, I want to make sure we get your ideas right,
      1. when you said dark mode and icon circular uniformity though, can you specify a bit and why, is it too bright for you on screens?
      2. When you mention a link to open our Airmirror, what do you mean by that?

      Feel free to shoot it to support@airdroid.com, or simply reply me below!

      • Flow

        1.Sometimes at night, when I open the app, the white UI blasts my eyes and causes strain so I lower the brightness. This is probably because I change my phone to a dark theme.
        2.With the link thing, I meant the ability to paste a link (e.g a download link) from your computer and send it/open the link in the phone’s browser.

  • rui_svensson

    my point is clear: I have a Android device, a good goal would get open a document on a PC. Difficult understand ?

  • alan mendeezy

    Old logo is better. New one is a left facing arrow?? The left facing arrow represents going backwards (think of any cassette, cd, dvd, and any media player). New logo is overly simplified, so I suppose going backwards is fitting. I’m not doubting the new features will probably be great. But the new logo is garbage. I literally am so astonishingly repulsed by this poor design that I have literally gone out of my way; clicked a button and typed a paragraph and registered to this forum JUST to express how extremely dissatisfied I am with this very very poor design work with zero thought put into what it represents. The paper plane with the android logo makes perfect sense and encompasses the title: AirDroid. Why would you replace that? You can make improvements without completely changing it….I’m sorry, I do not recognize AirDroid by the new design at all. It blends in with too many other apps in it’s boring over-simplistic design that offers no innovation. There is zero creativity in this new design. Who thought this was a good idea??

  • Zeit für mich

    Why are ALL the PCs and Laptops in your promotional images Macs?

  • Rob

    You would be better off developing connection via proxy capability so that we can use the web client from work rather than cosmetic logo changes.
