"Share files over wifi" (ShareBox) it's a new free tool app aimed to easily share files over wifi through web browser

When using ShareBox, you will not have anymore let friends and relatives take your device to show them your photos or videos. They will see them through their own device, be it android, iphone, windows, blackberry or linux, through their web browsers. And they will only see what you want to show in a quick, comfortable way and simultaneously!

As other devices begin to connect you will immediately know what they are watching through the informative Sharebox log list.

Get it at Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...b6dev.sharebox

Features that makes this app special:
  • Share the files through browser, so you can get them from any device that has a web browser be it android, iphone, ipad, windows, blackberry or linux.
  • Only shares and shows the files previously selected.
  • May be used with wifi networks, own wifi hotspot and also on phone 3g connections.
  • When ShareBox server is on, you are presented with a URL link to see what others are going to see.
  • As other devices begin to connect you will know what they are watching through the log list.
  • Very useful for photo shows as it presented by default as gallery, but also has a list mode that may be more suitable for other kind of files.

Came here cause I saw the app in the XDA portal, seems simple enough and ultra handy for the people who really struggle to send files.

Thumbs up
I also saw this on the XDA portal. Looks like a great idea; I have to try it out.
A few questions:
1) How do you connect over data (e.g. 3g)?
EDIT: I see the server status page has a WAN IP as well. Do we need to do any port forwarding or anything like that?
2) Can you download the files as well, or just view them?
3) Is there a way to add whole folders?

Hmm I like the concept !
(Not yet tried app - wishing you had a direct download link to fileshare service along with G-Store link)
Here's what I would like to be able to do and hoping your app can handle it.
Share a folder, then view / download those files through the browser.
Guessing http //device.ip/share

Portforwarding is common for any server, u might need to do it if connect to a router
I think u can start the server on mobile network directly

Sorry for my bad English...

Yeah I managed to download the app, with VPN & G'Play..
Nope, I cant add a whole folder.
Every-time I attempt to look at settings *CRASH*

I added a screenshot to share, it shows in PC browser as link, but wont download /open
Looking at path tells me why

'ictures' ? Really

I would rather use port 80 or 8080..
hence why I 'try' open settings, after tapping settings, about 6 seconds later. *CRASH*

The connection is made through ip sockets, so you may connect not only through wifi but also through all ip addresses your mobile may has, at the time you turn on your ShareBox

There is no need to do any port forwarding

Yes of course! If you do it from your mobile web browser keep your finger pressed over the target file till the contextual menu shows up. If done through computer browser use your secondary mouse button. Easy!

Adding whole folders may be done through workarounds (using third party file managers or file compression) but is not yet "officially" supported

Could not reproduce your error, sorry!. Certainly the uri is composed based on system path folders names, so don't know why it appears that way

Yes, you may change the port used through settings menu, but restriction to use ports below 1024 is keeped. As stated before, please report your crashes with as much information as possible.

Thanks!
