Wireless File Transfer

Alright, this is a really really simple “tip” for Android (and possibly iPhone users)

So as you know, bluetooth doesn’t really play well with Android when trying to transfer files between your computer and your phone. So, the easiest way to do it, is to get an app that makes your phone into a FTP server, then you can access the files through your browser.

For Android, there is an app from the market called

Wireless File Transfer Pro

It is really easy to use. You just need to turn on your wifi, connect to your home network. And when you turn it on, it will provide you with an IP address that you can type in.

So you just need to enter 192.168.11.4:8888  in your browser and you can access all your files there. As simple as that. Yes you can also upload your files. (the ip will change so don’t just blindly copy mine lol)

It’s way faster than bluetooth, and less hassle than the stupid usb cable.

For iPhone users, just search for an app that allows you to turn your phone into a FTP server. (FTP = File Transfer Protocol) So yeah, it pretty much explains itself.

Have fun with wireless file transfers! ^^
