How many times has it happened that you had to wait a really long time to transfer your files via Bluetooth? It has happened so many times indeed and you have always wanted an alternative to file transfer methods. Flash Transfer for Android is such an app that uses Wi-Fi instead of Bluetooth radio to transfer files and as the name suggests, the file transfer takes place like a flash. The app uses Wi-Fi hotspots to connect both devices and send the file through the network. Since Wi-Fi radios are faster than Bluetooth, the file transfer is usually done lot faster.
You can basically transfer anything via tethering two devices through Wi-Fi. Apps, images, music files or anything else; practically everything you can transfer. Bluetooth transfer doesn’t really work all the time and there are issues related to copyright and other protections as well; but if you still need to transfer a file then Flash Transfer can help you doing so. Don’t even worry about using data plan because it doesn’t require one.
Flash Transfer provides easy gestures like Swipe & Share. This feature helps you transfer files easily even while on the go through few specific pattern taps on your device display. For example, a swipe-out gesture on a file sends that file to the other device.
For faster connection between two devices, there’s a QR code feature as well. Scan the QR code on the sending devices to connect it with the receiving device and you are good to go.
