What we say
Drag and drop files to your phone through your web browser.
No account required!
Just drag files into the box on the web page and they sync to your phone.
Sync music, sync photos, sync documents, sync videos
Awesome Drop uses HTML5 features of web browsers (FireFox 3.6, Chrome 5 & Safari 5) to sync files to your phone.
New from Dashwire Labs, Awesome Drop feels a little bit like a 'version 1' release but that doesn't really make it any less awesome! It's interface and operation are very straightforward. Run app on phone. Open website. Input 4 digit code from website, drop files onto website, files appear on phone. Simple as that! If you want to get files onto your phone quickly and easily without using cables, this is the easiest way to do it!

Similar / Alternative apps
Dropbox, SugarSync and Zumodrive are similar sync based apps, but with an emphasis on 'ongoing sync' rather than 'file drops'.
Suggested improvements for the next version
Now that the concept is proved, it'd be good to fatten out the application a bit. Provides options on where files are dropped, persist a 'partnership' better so that the code doesn't have to be input each time, implement smart compression (if this isn't already enabled) and allow the app to be 'always waiting' in the background. Great app though already, hence the PAotD recommendation!
