Most people are using bluetooth or cable connection for transferring files from their laptops or computers to smartphone devices. Apple users for instance have to connect through USB cables to access iTunes for data sharing. Cable connections make us a little bit sluggish since you have to setup the connections from time and time again. On the other hand, transferring files via bluetooth has its limitation especially if you are sharing or transferring large files. I have used these methods but to be honest I have not used them for a long time for the basic reason that they’re not a sophisticated way of transferring and sharing files in smartphones.
I’m an iPhone user and I love its design and functionalities. However, when it comes to sharing of files, everyone may hate the locked file system, you just can’t share your files to other people and you can’t transfer anything without iTunes.
Now let me share to you how I worked around these challenges and made my file sharing in my iPhone faster and easier.
I searched for an application that I can use to tweak this issue and thankfully there were Wifi File Transfer Apps that I found. I scrolled away those apps that has dollar tags on them and looked for the free ones. Here they are:
File Via Wifi App
This free app allows you to upload with ease all your music, photos and document files such as pdf, word, excel, powerpoint and plain text files. You can create and manage all your files into folders. Once installed, with your wifi connection all you need to do is type in the given iPhone URL into your web browser, and you are instantly connected for transferring files from your PC or laptop.
This app can only play music but not videos. But for me, it has been very useful and very easy to use.
Feem Wifi File Transfer
The second wifi file transfer app I’m using is the Feem. Since I cannot play videos in the File Via Wifi App, I discovered this app and found it to have very good features. What’s great with this app is that it allows you to share and transfer files in different platforms, whether you’re using iPhone/iPad or Android, Windows or Mac. All you need to do is install the app on devices that you would like to use and you’re ready to go. You can start sharing all your favourite music and video files in no time. I have enjoyed using it especially for movie and music sharing.
There you have it guys. Download these apps and try it for yourself to share and transfer files over wifi. They’re totally free and no obligations at all. Please share your experience with it by commenting below.
