About this app

SuperBeam 5.0 is the easiest, fastest and most secure way to share large files between your devices using WiFi direct. Devices can be paired using QR codes (with the included QR code scanner) , NFC or manual sharing key.

No more clicks and manual approvals for connections. SuperBeam makes file sharing as convenient and fast as it should have been, because it is 2020 already!

• Blazing fast transfer speeds using WiFi direct.
• Pair devices using NFC or QR code scanning.
• Sharing with devices that do not have SuperBeam through web interface.
• Share single or multiple files of any type (photos, videos, zip files, APK's, contacts... You name it!).
• Keep history of all transfer operations.
• Modern Material Design user interface, with simplified send/receive screens (which can be merged under user interface settings).
• Light, dark and AMOLED color themes.

All received files are stored under "/sdcard/SuperBeam" directory by default, this can be changed in settings (PRO). Don't worry about duplicate files, SuperBeam will automatically add unique numbers to duplicate file names.

SuperBeam Switches to hotspot mode automatically for devices that don't support WiFi direct. Also, it can use existing WiFi network connection between devices in case WiFi direct fails.

*Edit: For a while now, few months or more, this app has not been functioning properly. It often stops transferring when it's between 70% - 95%. Clicking resume just restarts and rarely completes the transfer retry, leaving muItiple incomplete copies of files on my phone.* I got the full paid version and it works great. It is very simple to use and it transfers fast.

The most recent update cannot find specific files when using its general search function or when trying to search device folders, while it shows only certain files as available in the primary categories (video, audio, documents, etc.) - it's as though the app has lost most of its access to device storage. Very odd. Please address this issue.

The app is nice... make that very nice... Have used in android 12 beta, most recently, and was able to copy stuff to PC, but can't transfer "any" file unless I transfer it as an acceptable file format... For example, if I try to send an executable from my phone to my PC to use, it doesn't work, yet if I change the file extension to ".exe.jpg" it works just fine... Wish you could copy truly "any" file with it... Once it's the way I remember, supporting kinda everything, it'll go back to 4 stars
