This app has always been my go-to app for transferring files between my phone and PCs. Unfortunately, I purchased a new smartphone this year that came with Android 12 and the app cannot access the SD card on the phone. I store photos taken with my smartphone camera on my SD card, so I'm no longer able to use this app to transfer the photos to my PC. Since the last update was in 2013, I guess this app has been abandoned as far as future development. I'm off to find a replacement.

The charge/micro usb port no longer functions on my phone. This app allows me to easily transfer files between my phone and computer. My only real criticism of the app is that it does not let me transfer files to my phone's micro usb card. I can only transfer to the internal memory. This app is partially dependent on how good your internet is. When I initially downloaded the app, I had poor wifi. It took awhile to transfer files, and it would lose connectivity. Now that I have good internet, it transfers at about 48 mb/s. My only partial criticism of the app, is that when I begin my upload to the phone, a screen prevents me from seeing the upload rate. I have to readjust the size of the chrome browser, or the explorer browser to see the transfer progress. The program lets you upload multiple files in a single folder, but, I would also like it if the app allowed me to select more than one folder, and/or more than one file at a time for upload. I highly recommend this app to anyone that needs to transfer files without a wire.

I've been using this app for over a year. It transfers pictures and videos and probably any other file large or small. It does what you would expect it to do and does it well. I put a little icon on my desktop (pic phone swap). Open the program on you phone, then hit the icon on the desktop (I used the link provided when the phone app started), If you're doing pictures make sure that you navigate to the right place before starting to download. It's like file explorer. Like file explorer if you move the wrong things around, you can lose stuff. It gives you the option of compressing all the selection of files into one zip file for later extraction. Give the zip file a different name each time. Try extracting them before deleting anything. It can take time for the phone to make the compressed file. It also take WiFi time to transfer it. Look at the bottom of your computer screen to see the progress. Have you never used compressed files? Making the zip file is optional. Read up then. It doesn't get simpler than this program. You can also bypass compression and download files separately or in a bunch without compression.
