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.
Works great. A pleasure to use. How Easy! (Not with external SD card) What a pleasure to find, download, and use an app. that so perfectly and easily does exactly what it says. It's interface is so simple. If you're phone and PC are both connected to your wifi, here's all you do. On your phone, start the app and hit "START". On your PC browser, enter the address (e.g., 10.10.10.10:1234), and voila, there appears your phone's storage, by folder. Create a new folder if you'd like. Copy stuff using drag and drop, and then click "Upload files". Done! When finished, close your browser. And, on your phone, click "STOP". 2015.02.05 update -- still works great with phone's internal storage, but you can't write to an external SD card. Booo!
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.
WiFi File Transfer Pro Excellent. I'm a newcomer to Android and I found it to be intuitively easy to use to transfer files from my (XP) PC to my Android (Samsung Galaxy) tablet. Tip: put a shortcut on you XP desktop for even easier access to your tablet via WiFi File Transfer Pro. It works well with Google Chrome or Epic browsers. But Mozilla Firefox users beware as its flakey with my version of that browser.
