[App][OSX/Windows] Wire 4 AirDroid

While working on that project, I read someone's complaint that AirDroid does not work over a USB cable. I know, that's kind of what the app's name would imply, right?

Anyway, AirDroid is awesome.
There are advantages to using AirDroid over a USB connection: for instance, it's much faster than a wireless connection and your data doesn't travel over your wireless network, and that's obviously safer.

So, I created this couple very basic tray/menu apps: one for OS X, one for Windows. Maybe one for Linux is your ask for it.

All it does it make AirDroid work over the USB cable.

Note that you will need to enable USB debugging on your device. Furthermore, on Windows, you will need to install your manufacturer's USB drivers.

Unfortunately, Bluetooth connections are very slow. I guess, with a rooted phone, it would be possible to install a network driver but again it would likely be extremely slow.

Very nice idea. I can't make it running. The app works and it's in my taskbar but the browser can't open it. Is there any instruction how to run it? any options should I check in AirDroid?

Do you have USB debugging enabled on your device?

Yes, I do. When I select "Open AirDroid" in Wire4Droid, it's open http://127.0.0.1:8888/ address in my browser but unable to open anything. I'm using Win7 64bit can it be the reason?
