Very good job. 'Till now I've used an app that use the ip addresss within the same network to make connection between phone and pc. But your app is faster and simpler.

Hi, i like it. Will you implement a Exit / run-in-background choice on Android?

That would be a great addition. But It will use some battery, right?

Hello. The app continues to run in the background even when you exit. Is that what you are asking for or have I misunderstood?
Btw in my devices I have not noticed an increase in battery consumption leaving the app running in the background.

The key word is "choice".
Sooner or later i always have to manage apps with services (freeze, take away receiver intent or uninstall if they refuse to play along) because no matter how small the impact (battery drain, CPU time, RAM) it just sums up.... (or because i hate not be in control...otherwise i would accept an iphone-approach).
So if it does not hurt your philosophy and you like the power of the user, pretty please provide a choice. Thanks for considering.

I misunderstood
It's already in the to do list.

I'm on windows 8.1, what am I supposed to do to install this program?

edit, it's ok once I kicked my antivirus a bit, I got it working

How to add something as a trusted device though?

If I am correct, You need to download that zip file. (Link for zip is in the main post or you can download it from easyjoin.net)

Unzip that downloaded file. Open the folder. There will be .exe file. Run it & Pin it to taskbar. So that you can open from there.

Edit: Open EasyJoin on both devices. The app will detect available device with It's default/given name. There will be a + button with device name. Click on it to add it as trusted device.

VeProid7 was correct. Btw if you have issues with the Windows firewall you can use the vbscript file to open the port. You can execute the vbscript file directly from the folder or from the "Settings" window.

You can find the link for the latest update of the Windows app in the main post. Usually i delete the previous attachments in order to preserve the disk space. The above link is not anymore available.

I have been using EasyJoin for a while and even convinced some of my friends to use to it, and I can say it's been quite great – almost unexpected, actually.

The UI, which was the vocal point in my Play Store review is getting better in each update. However, if looking at a function-over-form perspective, the app is admittedly, very usable.

Apart from the lack of Mac and Linux client (requiring me to use a Windows machine to cross-transfer to my PC), I don't see much to complain about and the solid transfer performance is something I appreciate a lot.

Overall, would definitely recommend. I plan to use the app as an 'on-the-go' replacement for Samba, and it seems to be to doing that job well.
