As mentioned in the app description on Google Play, the app does not work on Motorola's Razr devices. Sorry for that. It seems Motorola have a major bug somewhere in their WiFiManager implementation.

Default Excellent app

Works fine on Samsung Galaxy SL (GT-I9003) running stock 2.3.6 GB. Getting speeds in excess of 1600 kbyte/s.

Requests to dev:

1. Show file size, speed, estimated time remaining during transfer.

2. Include a "cancel" button.

3. Enable batch transfers (queuing multiple file transfers).

4. Include a notification in the pull down menu with details of the transfer.

5. Consider implementing it like Bluetooth file transfer. The app must be installed on both devices. Pair/authenticate the devices, then select the file and the receiver device. Transfer will start immediately. The app running in background in the receiver device will detect the incoming file(s) and transfer them, without user intervention. Of course, include an option to "ask always". For non-Android devices, there's web based transfer/QR code.

Thanks a lot!

Will add this in one of the next updates.

You can already send multiple files:
Just select multiple files in your file explorer before sending them.

I'm planning to include a receiving part right within the app, where you would only have to enter Name and PW of the sender once and can receive with one click later.

I think you should not enable it like Bluetooth because I can send files to my laptop

Having app installed on both devices is not possible on laptop

Developing an app that allows transfers to any WiFi device was one of my original goals, so of course I will always keep a way to receive without any special app. The receiving part I mentioned would just connect to the WiFi for you and open the web browser automatically.

BTW, some One V users report that the app does not work for them. Does it work on your One V? If so, which ROM are you running?

Just discovered your app and have to say it's brilliant. I've always been searching for an app allowing me to send files via wifi between to devices using the Hotspot functionality. You just made my day the only thing that could improve your app is a holo design and the already mentioned nfc feature
