Add menu button in nav bar. That part is easy, win8.1 not cooperating. The LG wireless storage was the bomb.

This has nothing to do with Kit Kat. The g2 is running. Kit Kat as well as the LG 8.3" tablet. Both had wireless storage. Something else is going on here

Near as I can tell, AirDroid is NOT QUITE the same as WirelessStorage. The former goes through a Cloud service server for a website that offers you free and premium features. You're not staying on your own internal wireless network, which is what the Wireless Storage does.

Certain file explorers for Android offer similar functionality to WirelessStorage. I just tested out Solid Explorer and it has an FTP Server functionality (go to the program Menu and select "File Sharing") that will allow basic directory view and file downloads from the LG G3. It does not appear to have the upload capability, though and the web interface is nowhere near as polished as the LG G2's native capability. Unfortunately this program does not offer a free version.

I would assume that ES File Explorer would have similar (or even superior) functionality? I haven't confirmed if that's true or not, yet.
