An Adhoc Network is an infrastructure-less network of wireless devices where participants can communicate with each other even if they are not directly in each other's wireless range but have a common neighbor available to forward their traffic. For further details visit our website.
Please be aware that this application DOES NOT enable your device to connect to an adhoc network initiated by a PC. This app only JOINS adhoc networks created by this app on some other device. However, all kind of other devices can join the adhoc network created by this app.
1. You have to connect two devices (PC, tablet or smartphone) via WiFi. You can connect them directly or with a router.
2. Run the program on both devices. The IP address of the other device will be automatically filled in the field "Recipient IP" from the field "Your IP".
3. Set a directory to store files.
4. Choose file and click "Send file".
A version for Windows and Windows Mobile is also available (you can transfer files and directories from/to your PC or WM-device).

"This works so much faster than Bluetooth", "WiFi Shoot is free, and I’m impressed with what it can already do" (Tested www.tested.com/news/166998-google-app-play-0813/ )
"It’s easy, it’s effective, and for a beta version, it works pretty darn well." (iJailbreak www.ijailbreak.com/applications/wifi-shoot-android-app-download/ )
"it's remarkably easy to use" (androidpolice.com http://www.androidpolice.com/2012/08/06/wi-fi-shoot-beta-lets-users-share-photos-and-videos-via-wi-fi-direct/ )

This app was personally successfully tested on the following devices:
Galaxy Nexus (GSM), Nexus 7, Galaxy S2 (International), Galaxy S3 International (both on Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean), HTC One S, Nexus 10, Nexus 4 (on 4.2.2), Sony Zperia Z
Note to ASUS Transformer TF300 users: ASUS removed WiFi Direct from the TF300 on Jelly Bean. The app needs WiFi Direct to work. That's ASUS fault!
Note to Samsung Galaxy SIII users: The Galaxy SIII does not behave well to receive invitations. Try to always initiate the connection from the Galaxy SIII.
This app have been reported by users to be working perfectly on the following devices:
Galaxy S, HTC One V
I'll be personally testing more soon.
This app theoretically works with any pair of ICS+ devices with WiFi Direct support. But unfortunately, due to bad implementation of the WiFi Direct drivers by individual device manufacturers sometime devices are not compatible with each other, don't work multiples times until a reboot, or simply decide not to work at all. For example, the Galaxy Nexus on ICS used to crash and reboot the device just by turn on and off the wifi direct a few times, and that have nothing to do with the WiFi Shoot, it was just on the device settings menu. Unfortunately there's really nothing that WiFi Shoot can do to work around those specific devices issues. I strongly suggest users having those kind of problems to send angry e-mails to your specific device manufacturer customer support.
If it does not work on your device, DO NOT BUY THE PREMIUM, it won't change anything!

DroidDTN takes a novel approach to ad-hoc networking using Android’s Bluetooth API to create a dynamic, decentralized networking platform with relevant uses in crisis situations, developing countries, and many other arenas in which no existing Internet infrastructure is available. It serves as a blogging application which syncs data with other users via Bluetooth.
