I have used this appp for several phones. It works well. Bare bones functionality as far as I can tell,but gets the job done. But now it has become useless as the files on my phone are not showing on the web browser on my PC. Now it only tells me the battery charge and the internal storage being used on my phone. Figured it out. I had somehow turned off permissions. Now it works great. I will change my review to 5 stars.

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.

I use my LG v40 cellphone as my YouTube camera because the picture and the microphone are fantastic. I access the mp4 on my internal storage through this app from my laptop Chrome browser. The free version allows me to transfer many many gigabytes through my Wi-Fi. Then I delete them off my phone. I tried to do a direct connect to my computer but wasn't able to figure it out. I thought it might be faster. I don't see any reason to upgrade because it works fine the way it is.
