About this app

FaxFile sends fax files or documents,including PDF files, stored on your Android phone or tablet to any fax number in the USA/Canada and many international locations. Send a fax from your phone as simply as selecting a file and entering a fax number.

FaxFile supports sending via fax PDF and Microsoft office Word documents (.doc or .docx). It can also send as a fax images in PNG and JPG formats. Enabling you to fax images saved by your phone's or tablet's camera.

You will need to purchase fax credits through the Google play store (in-app purchase) to send a fax. Fax credits are not refundable in whole or in part once you have started a fax.

Faxes transfer in the background from your phone or tablet to our fax servers which do the actual sending. Fax status is returned to the application at each step.

There no monthly subscription required in order to send faxes. NOTE: for international faxes, check the international rate table in the application before purchasing credits to verify that the country(ies) you care about are supported.

Supports sending a fax to contacts or typed in fax numbers for a one-off fax.

We will automatically retry faxes that don't go through initially - no additional charge and you don't need to do anything. If a fax fails to go through PLEASE call the number and verify that a fax machine is actually answering. This is the number one problem with failed faxes. Don't rely on "of course the fax machine is working".

Fax formats of image files (photos of documents) takes quite a while to transfer and send as a fax.
Allow at least 3 minutes per page to transfer and two minutes to fax if you are sending a scan or image (photo) file. More if your data connection maybe ... slow.

See the introductory help in the FaxFile app and FAQ for more information.

Works with all Android devices including tablets. Requires network access of some sort. WiFi usually best.

I was surprised at the ease of use of this App. Simple, fast, and no trial garbage. You only pay for what you use. You get the progress status onscreen while it's being sent, and confirmation on delivery. Buy credits through the App using the method you prefer, and you get an email on the charge + tax, as soon as you've made the purchase. Once you have the credits in your account, it displays the balance. You enter your name, the fax #, and away it goes. Thanks for a useful App!

I was pleasantly surprised by the simplicity of this app. Very easy to navigate with no 'learning curve'. Rates are very reasonable, and having the option to buy play store credits is very handy. It took a few minutes for the fax to go through, and at first I thought it was another bad app. I read the faq and it answered my question as to whether I should cancel and resend. Don't cancel it, just be patient. In the menu, there is a 'status' tab, so you can check there

It works as advertised. A maximum cost of 50¢ per page (at the smallest bundle of credits), which isn't bad, all things considered. A local library or government office may have free fax machine use, but if you need to fax something that you don't have in physical format already, and you would have to travel to get to one, then 50¢ (or less) per document page isn't that bad for the principle of convenience; it's worth it, especially considering you can fax direct from the popular cloud storages.
