Default [Q] File Transfer Apps

Hey everyone,

Just wondering if I could get some suggestions on good wifi file transfer apps - like my last Samsung I can't for the life of me get this phone to be recognized by Windows. I am rooting and running the awesome Kang AOKP ROM.

WiFi File Explorer is having trouble moving files around - I keep getting network errors on my failed downloads in Chrome on my PC.

Any other more stable app suggestions?

I find ES explorer to do pretty much anything I need. Wifi, samba, bluetooth, wifi direct. Also free in the market, and allows root access (su permitting)

Tips for a pleasant XDA:
Search before asking. Someone has likely already asked.
Spell your words completely, and use punctuation. It confuses people when you use "u" and "ur" and "dat", or when you wrongly use "there/their/they're/your/you're".
Be nice. Don't be rude, just move on to another post without leaving a comment. We are not 7 years old.
And PLEASE, do not ask for the "best" anything. We all have our preferences.

Thanks for the suggestions I will check them both out... I already have ES but didn't configure any servers on it. I am having luck with WiFiDroid- another freebee

ES Filexplorer is the best.

GUI gets a little wierd at times but it has so many features it can do what your asking.

I actually just discovered pushbullet today it allows for file, picture, text, etc to be pushed from Chrome, or any Android device to another. It even lets you push them to friends phones who have the app as well
