Simple to dowload and use. Works intuitively. Great app. Thanks to the developers, this was a great timesaver. My cell charging port was damaged so until I replace it I thought I wouldnt be able to download my data (at least not safely and securely). This app just provides you with the IP address of the cell's internal storage once it's logged into your local network. So the entire transfer is between two devices within the local network, initiated from your PC.

Like some others on this feedback board, I'm not one to write reviews of software because things change so rapidly. But I am so impressed with this small/resource-efficient piece of code that is so well designed and executed I had to write a review. I have an older version of Android 4.1.2 (after 18yrs of experience with software ... if it ain't broke, I don't fix it) and this little app installed with no issue, works out of the box with no issue (with various versions of IE, Chrome and FireFox browsers) and has a very easy, intuitive and well-designed user interface for all of its functionality. Great job by the developers! 5 Stars!

Transfer works flawless. If yours or others don't work, it's not the app. It is a communication issue. IE security, browser etc. Display is intuitive. However, free version limited. For larger files I now use FTP transfer. It not as nicely layout visually. It not as graphics visually as easy, but supports large files. WIFI file transfer is the best. I wish the unlimited version was free. I will never, for security reasons, put my credit card info on Google.
