Briefcase allows two computers to sync files with each other. Apparently, the main purpose of Brief case is to sync a desktop computer and a mobile PC(which I'm guessing is a laptop). what I'm wonfering is if there's something like that for pc and mobile devices?

I just have Google Drive installed on my laptop and desktop to sync files across the two. Anything I put in it, edit, or delete gets uploaded and then downloads to the other device.

Dropbox works that way as well.

Airdroid is kinda like that.
If you believe in Cthulhu and are 100% proud, put this in your sig.

I already have it actually. The problem with it (like bluetooth) is that it leaves a file behind on the device that the file came from. The problem with that is that I have to delete it and most of the time I'm too lazy to. that creates a problem because either(or both) I will have too many doubled documents or I'll have different info in both files(like one can have the ending and the other have the story continue on). That's why I want something that's similar to Briefcase. While I would rather the transferring be offline. I don't know if I have a choice.

I don't know how that software works, but there is sharing software. My G2 came with something to sync over WiFi to a computer (not that I've used it).

Asus motherboards also come with software for it.

I ended up using Dropbox. Is it possible to connect Dropbox to Polaris office? I have a Galaxy S2 running Andriod 2.3.3 and a Asus Transformer pad Infinity running 4.0.3.

edit: by that, I mean using Polaris Office to open dropbox files it hasn't already and have the files sync. I know I can open a file in Dropbox first then use it, but I don't want to have to do that if I don't need to. I know Polaris Office tablet can connect to cloud storage, but it only gives options for Box.net on both devices and Google Docs on the tablet.
