Hi everyone,

An iOS App called "DeskConnect" caught my attention because it is pretty neat at what it does. It allows you to send files from your PC/Mac to your, in this case, iDevice (or vice versa) over WiFi in a breeze. You just have to download the App on the computer and iDevice register with the same account on both devices.


My question is, is their an application similar to DeskConnect for Android? I'd like to download an App on my Mac and HTC One and be able to send stuff from my computer by just dragging what I want to send into the application and then receiving the document in the application on my phone.

I know I can probably connect my phone via USB and then transfer files like but I want to know if there is an easy way to do this over WiFi.

AirDroid is pretty cool for doing that.
For me sometimes a bit buggy though. (especially when transferring mp3)

Still in my opinion the best choice!
Everything runs over your browser.

Ps: the registration is only needed if you want to transfer files through the Internet rather than using your network.

PushBullet is what I use. But the limit for uploading a file is 25MB. I know some apps are bigger than that but it's worked well for me so far, light on the PC and phone, just runs on the browser as well.

PushBullet! It's simple. Download the app to your phone and the Chrome extension, log in to both and voila "push" files with one click!

I've been using WiFi File Transfer Pro for a good while now, it's very good..... https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...transfer&hl=en

I would say Air Droid is best because you can also control your camera and have notifications displayed on the PC

Android has a lot better solution than that. You can install "Software data Cable" . Chose Sync and it create an FTP server. You just need to have a FTP client on your PC/Mac/Linux.

What's more, when the phone is not in wifi network, it can create an wireless Hotspot.

Solid Explorer has a nifty FTP share feature... I used it because for what ever reason I couldn't mount my One via USB. Airdroid works well too.
