QtADB Brings Android File Management And App Installation To Your Desktop

Windows/Mac/Linux/Android: If you've ever tinkered with your phone, you've probably heard of ADB, the command line debug tool for Android. If you're not in love with the command line, though, QtADB brings ADB's file management, app installation and more to a friendly GUI.

Whether you're tweaking a few system files on your phone or trying to root it, sometimes you have no other choice but to run some commands in an ADB shell. The command line can be intimidating, though, not to mention slow and arduous if you haven't beefed up your command line ninja skills. If you just need to perform a couple quick tasks, qtADB makes the process easy by bringing tons of ADB's most common uses -- from file management to app installation to backups -- to a friendly desktop program. It even contains a built-in ADB shell if you find you need to run a manual command or two. Check out the video above to see it in action, and hit the link below to download it.

QtADB is a free download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, and works with Android devices.

    If it makes installing ADB easier, it'll be an improvement too.

      Does ADB need to be installed? From memory I just run the .exe file from the android-sdk folder. I think you can run it stand alone without the SDK if you wanted (not entirely sure on this though.)
