WiFi File Transfer Pro SUCKS WiFi File Transfer Pro works great to transfer files from my desk top to the 16 GB SIM card on my new Samsung Galaxy S5 but offers no way to transfer files to the 64 GB SD card. I bought the 64 GB SD card specifically to be able to put my 35 GB music library on new Samsung Galaxy S5. After transferring A through F of my music library from my desktop to my phone using the USB cable I bought WiFi File Transfer Pro specifically to be able to more easily transfer files from my desk top to my phone without using a USB cable but WiFi File Transfer Pro can't do this. I sent 2 emails to WiFi File Transfer Pro (Smartdroid) a week ago and haven't even received an acknowledgement back. WiFi File Transfer Pro was only a buck 40 but I'm going to ask for a refund anyway.
Nexus 4 CM11 - Works After AirDroid began halting during file transfers I went looking and found this. Works well. No frills.Very quick, Very clean and it WORKS 100% of the time which is all I need. It may not look pretty but it works every time. Great with phone sitting on the Qi charger on my desk for backing and restoring and moving stuff - first browser window opened in Chrome when I start my desktop and last closed is WiFi File Transfer (Pro). I bought the paid version - as I do for any software I use that works as advertised. Recommended.
Horriable after update now with the update certain files wont upload to the tablet or smart phones, you click the file you want and nothing happens, you go to basic uploader and a movie takes about 25-30 mins to upload. it was great prior to all these recenet updates now im lucky if i can even upload a file to the devices. before update i was gettin about 7-10 mb now im lucky to see 80-128kb.
Good app but there may be alternatives It's a good application. However, if you're not looking to back up the root directories or have to transfer a file to a specific directory then maybe SkyDrive or Dropbox is a nice option. If you are only transferring pictures, videos or music, any cloud base service would do. In this case you would not have to connect using an IP address at a specific port. Also, the files will always be available and not take up space.
The last update on this app was 2013 so this app is not being kept up to date with the latest versions of Android. It does not support Android 5.0 Lollipop for removable sd card storage. When Kitkat 4.4 shut off access to the sd card, I rooted my phone and was able to grant the file permissions to the app and it still worked. Android 5.0 uses a document model in place of file permissions as of November 2014. This app has not been updated so does not support the document model.
FANTASTIC after my htc wouldnt let windows find my music folder. (htc want me use htc sync manager which i dont want on my laptop and dont want the exact same music on laptop and phone but htc wont let me do it differently) i discovered this app. its super fast and lets me rename/edit/zip/unzip files on my phone via my laptop. It is now the only way i will transfer music and video to any other phone..........perfect app
