Chrome app & Tablet client

Chrome app[/b]A Chrome app seems a natural extension of Android to the Chrome browser and OS environment in a way Google seems reluctant to follow through on. There are two equally viable options for this: The simplest route is to just make it a Chrome web app which is basically a glorified bookmark with a separate entry in Chrome's app list (you can pin this to the taskbar in ChromeOS). If you instead opt to make a packaged Chrome app it really makes Airdroid a first-class citizen on the desktop (though it is still served via Chrome). Packaged apps can make panels and offer more granularity in terms of the interface. They also have more low-level functionality available to them than simple web apps.


Tablet client
Owning both a phone and a tablet, I sometimes find the desire to control the phone from the tablet. While I can run the normal web app in the Chrome browser on the tablet, it clearly isn't optimized for such. This too can be approached in two ways: Again the simplest is just a tablet-optimized web interface maybe one for 7" tablets and one for 10" tablets. A full-fledged Android app client would be smoother overall probably and look nicer.
