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.

So far so good. Spent hours on phone with verizon and samsung trying to resolve wifi direct and blue tooth files between 2 phones, to no avail. 1. Seem to have to restart phone after a transfer because says still transferring after complete. 2. Screen doesn't reopen correctly. However, I'm very glad can quickly and easily transfer files. Thank you.

1. It works, but on Windows 10 it will only send using wifi and QR code. 2. I had to find this out by trial and error, no user doc pointed this out. 3. Does not provide interface to specify destination folders. Have to use a phone app to find and move. 4. Had to stop and restart on both devices to do a 2nd xfer. App will repeat the xfer ad nauseam.

Was initially very enthused by the simple, clean UI. However, functionality falls short. Does not appear to support WiFi direct, and there is a bug where wifi hotspot spins out while starting. Sharing section headers are missing, everything shows up as "..." Files & Folders and Documents sections are blank, with no apparent means to access files in the android filesystem, as with most other apps. Hoping some bug fixes will bring this back. Again, simple/clean UI has a lot of appeal.
