I think this is in the right place...

I've looked everywhere, and I can't seem to find an application that will allow me to transfer a file from my Nexus 7 (2013) to my computer without actually using my computer. Is this not possible? Thanks for help.

When you say not using your computer I gather you mean not plugging it in to the computer?

Use Google Drive? It's free, just upload it to your drive: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roid.apps.docs

Install this on your computer: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/drive

You're done.

I'll use dropbox. Quick, easy to use. (Desktop app puts a folder in your computer, allowing u to use dropbox like a folder)

Smack that thanks button if I helped!

No, I mean not even be near it.

Ha, yes, the cloud, but I should have clarified: colossal monstrosities of files that won't fit in Dropbox or Drive or whatever else. This?

You can try using PushBullet, and see if that works for you.

How will colossal monstrosities of files not fit in dropbox? Unless u say It's 60gb, it'll fit. (Damn, dun underestimate the cloud dude.)

Yeah, I meant like more than one, and without having to buy like, a corporate account.

Thanks for the other suggestions though. I've tried Airdroid, I got annoyed at it but I'll give it another shot and check out that other one.
