Using WiFi to Connect:
Once your PC and Smartphone are on the same WiFi or wired connection for internet its really easy to connect them by WiFi. I usually at least sync them first using the cable. I then disconnect and make sure the WiFi is on the phone and the software will do the rest and auto detect the phone once the App is open on the phone and on the computer. Also your PC does not need to have a WiFi card for the WiFi feature to work and not need for wires.

I mainly use it for YouTube demonstrations as it makes the smartphone screen more visible and easier to manipulate. You can also use it as was mentioned to demonstrate a Smartphone App or feature to a group during a presentation. For personal use you can access files and pictures and move them back and forth between your PC and Smartphone with ease using this method.
