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.

If you need a cover page, please see our related app FaxCover.

Very convenient, I just needed to send a quick one time fax. It does charge credits per fax and it varies depending on which country you are sending it to. it was $2.99 for 50 credits, and cost 10 credits to send a fax in US/Canada. That's about 60¢ a fax and cheaper than using the postal service. I prefer the credits rather than other apps that try to sign you up on a subscription and make it difficult to cancel the 'free trials'.

This app is very user-friendly, affordable, and offers 3 cover sheets. I highly recommend this app. 😃 I replaced my previous app with FaxFile because they decided to charge an expensive membership fee of $99.99 a year! 😕 I lost the credits I still had on my account when they changed their cost policy. 😠 This app offers different sized packages of credits that will fit anyone's needs, and your credits DO NOT EXPIRE! 🙆‍♀️ My fax went through without any issues. FaxFile is great!👍🏻

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
