Many of the users use ES file explorer as file manager its just not a file manager it can do as well as has many tools.

Many of the users might know this technique. Some of them don't so just thought of sharing this technique.

This technique/tool was suggested from a friend. I m just sharing.

This technique can only be used in ES file explorer version 3 and above

This technique uses wifi hotspot and wi-fi. Its more faster than bluetooth you can even send 500 mb of files easily

It works even in unrooted phones.

Needed:

ES file explorer in both phones.
Wi-fi hotspot and wi fi working.

As you know as there are two phones so one is receiver another is sender.

So in order to send a file to receiver the receiver has to create a hot spot

For receiver:

1.Open ES file explorer
2. Scroll to tools.(You can get it by tapping on options button right side of your home button)
3 Tap on it.
4. Scroll down you will see net manger.
5. Tap on it
6. Tap on Create a hotspot network
7. Hot spot will be created named(ex: ES_5614) and password for that will be displayed.
8. Done from receiver side

For sender:

1. Open ES file explorer.
2. Select the file my long pressing on it.
3. Tap on more.
4. You will see a option of send tap on it.
5. Then you will see a page of create a hotspot network & Join a network.
6. As you are the sender you have to tap on join a network
7. It will find the name of the hotspot(ex. ES_5614) tap on it and enter the password.
8. It will now join. You can see in the status bar.
9. It will go back to previous page.
10. Now again tap on send.
11. You will see the name of the phone.
12. Tap on it.
13. Receiver will get a notification. Select the folder and select ok.
14. File transfer will start.


For sender to be receiver follow the steps for receiver and vice versa.

You have successfully send a huge file at fast speed without the need of bluetooth.

In Sense based Roms
In some sense based roms the hotspot doesnt start from ES file explorer due to some security issues done by HTC.

Still you can send files through ES file explorer.

All you have to do is:

For Receiver:

1. Go to settings
2. Enter a password..
3. Create a hotspot.
3. Done.

For Sender:

1.Go to settings
2.Start you wi fi
3.Connect to the hotspot(Created by Receiver)
4. Connect to the hotspot.
5. You will see connected status in status bar.
6. Done.

Now both Receiver and sender open es file explorer.

For Sender:


1. Long press on the file you want to send.
2. Tap on send (You will get it by tapping on more)
3. You will see the phones name.
4. Select it. File transfer will start.
5. Done.

For receiver:

1.Accept the request
2.Select the folder. Select OK. File transfer starts
3.Done

You have successfully transfered files between ES file explorer.

This works with the Kindle as well. Install ESFile Explorer from the kindle store and transfer away. I use this to put apps on the Kindle that are only in the Google Play store (Clash of Clans for instance). After transferring just open the apk and install it. Make sure to tick the option in settings to install from unknown sources.
