If you have installed the Windows app v1.0 you have to uninstall it and use the live version. If you want to move your current data (messages, trusted devices and configuration) you have to:
- open the directory "c:\users\your_user_name\appdata\local\apps\2.0"
- locate the "easyjoin.exe" file. In the same directory exist the directory "data".
- Copy and paste the "data" directory in the directory "easyjoin.live"

From v1.0.1 you have to follow the steps below to update the Windows version:
1. unzip the " easyjoin.portable-v*.zip" file
2. select all files in folder "easyjoin.portable*"
3. copy the selected files in the folder with the current installation of the program

Note: All your data (devices, messages, settings) are in the "data" folder. By following the above procedure you don't delete your data, you only update the program.

Great App.

Your app is very useful. I am using it on windows 10 and android devices. It's working very smooth.

Suggestions:

1. If possible you should add an option to select different sound for notifications.
2. You should add theme options in future updates.
3. In message section, Long pressing on message or file should select the message. Just like you can select message & It gives more options in whatsApp.
4. Are you planning to make an app for iOS in future?

Uninstall guide for Windows app.

You should add step by step uninstall guide for windows app. I am a very basic windows 10 user and I am not able to uninstall the app. I am not able to find directory. It would be great if you can help me with it. Thanks in advance!

About uninstalling the windows version. All you have to do is delete the directory containing the program. Only, if you have enabled the "startup on boot", you have to disabled it in order to remove the key from the registry. Is a self contained app, if you exclude the Microsoft .NET Framework that you have installed separately, and all the files that it use are in the same folder/subfolder.

1,2 are in the todo list.
3. will be available in the next version.
4. Creating an iOs version is not in the current plan because I miss the hardware needed for development.

Available from version 1.0.10. You can send a message (text or file/image) to another application. You can also select multiple messages to forward to an other device or delete.

Awesome!

That's awesome and It was fast! Thanks a lot for quick update!

Just one suggestion about point 3. When you select text, there should be an option to copy it. Just like WhatsApp.

*About uninstalling windows version:

- I am not able to find the directory. Is it unzipped folder location for easyjoin.exe file? Deleting easyjoin.exe deletes the program, right?

- Also what's the location for that registry file?


*About future plans:


1.What are your plans about easyjoin?

2.There are only few good apps that does file sharing notification sharing for devices. Is it a fun project to provide a free app to users or You are planning to make premium version in future?

3.When did you think about making this app? Are you working on some other apps?

Is the folder containing the easyjoin.exe file. If you have enabled "startup on boot" open the app, uncheck the box and then delete the easyjoin folder. The registry file is the Windows one but don't worry about it, just follow the above instructions..

My plan at the moment is to create an easy-to-use application, improve the UI (the current user interface should be considered in alpha version), which does not need an external server to share files and notifications and do not overwhelm the user with advertising.

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

Link for windows: https://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=4281040&d=1506182662


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.
