About this app

WebSharing Lite enables you to wirelessly transfer files to and from your phone or tablet using a web browser. You can view images, play videos, and manage files on your device using your WI-FI network.

* FREE, AD-FREE, AND UNCONSTRAINED: The Lite version of WebSharing is entirely free. There are no advertisements displayed, neither on your phone/tablet itself nor in your web browser. Drag-and-drop file upload is included. There are no file-size limitations in the free version. The full version adds more features, but the Lite version is intended to be very functional and useful by itself.

* FILE MANAGER: Use the file browser to upload and download content to and from your device. The file browser is a fully functional file manager, with the ability to move, copy, rename, and delete files and folders on the phone/tablet. DRAG-AND-DROP file upload lets you quickly upload files by simply dragging them into the browser. With Google Chrome, you can event drag-and-drop entire hierarchies of folders. Uploaded files are queued/uploaded sequentially, so you can be repeatedly drag files/folders into WebSharing without worry.

* IMAGE VIEWER: A built-in image viewer provides the ability to display large photos with pan and zoom capabilities.

* VIDEO PLAYER: Play videos stored on the phone directly within the browser. Videos may be downloaded or viewed directly using both HTML5 and Flash-based video players. The HTML5 player has streaming support, letting you quickly skip to a position inside large movies.

* PRIVACY AND PERFORMANCE: Your data never leaves your Wi-Fi network when you use WebSharing. It does not use the Internet / cloud to perform transfers. Your computer and phone/tablet will communicate directly and privately. And because your data doesn't go over the Internet, transfers happen at local network speed.

Network support: WebSharing is intended for use on Wi-Fi networks, but can work over cellular networks if your carrier allows direct access to phones/devices on their network. Most carriers do not allow cellular access.

Browser support: WebSharing supports modern web browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer.

Video format support: WebSharing can play videos using either an HTML5 or Flash-based video player. Video format support varies by browser and operating system. Most current browsers will play MP4 files using HTML5. The Flash player is capable of playing MP4, 3GPP, and FLV files.

This is the "LITE" version of WebSharing. If you'd like more features, you can upgrade to the paid version of WebSharing: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nextapp.websharing.r1 The full version adds the following additional capabilities:

* A music player that enables you to stream music from your phone/tablet to your computer. Browse your entire music collection, or by artist, album, or playlist.
* Browse photo and video galleries.
* Access your device as a disk drive from your computer using WebDAV.
* Enable a guest access account with customizable restrictions.

Really good. The best app of web file browser so far. However, may I suggest a proper mobile web interface. WebSharing works flawlessly when connection from a computer. But, the interface seems not apt for connection from other smartphones or tablet. I cannot even access a folder because I cannot "double click" from a mobile browser. Having a version of the site for phones will trutly be amazing.

Good App. It does, what it is intended to do. But, initial starting takes too much time. Even data transfer is at very low speed; takes lot of time, even for previewing a picture. This can be optimized to increase data transfer speed across wifi router. I am expecting improvement, to work like a LAN / Intranet kind of File Explorer, using WIFi Router, in the Home Network. Then it can be given 5*

BUG FIX idea for Developer: just bought pro version. can't enter folders Android browsers as you know, FIX: add to long_press menu options: OPEN FOLDER. Not much coding, FIX it bro, what's this mentality that you can't go back to things. Snap out of it & get on with your life. It's working ok on desktop (windows Linux etc) browsers, just cleaning with android double_tap zoom function. Has good media (img audio vid) sections. His other main app file manager, nice for networking etc
