We never thought that one day we could actually use either an Android phone or a tablet PC to create a lot of content in one segment. Between notes and pictures taken on your smartphone and that special content hammered out of your Fly Touch tablet PC, you’ll notice there’s always something on your mobile device that you’d like to dig out from your PC. Thanks to Dooblou WiFi File Explorer that is built to handle this task perfectly.
Before we even knew about wireless file explorers such as this, we could only transfer files from the phone in two ways: For example, you’d put the file in Dropbox or use a USB cable to connect the PC and the phone to transfer files. When you talk of cables in this 21st-century –really, it’s a painful course a person shouldn’t have to undergo, and Dropbox appears like an unproductive solution for handling such enormous file transfers.
What is a WiFi File Explorer?
WiFi File Explorer is an Android app that uses your Android mobile phone or tablet Wi-Fi connection to link your wireless network, which then it comes up with little Web server-like on your network that allows you to go through your files from any other PC on the network. All you need to do is just to go to your computer and enter an IP address including the port number the app software provides you, for example 192.168.1.77:8000, and then you’ll have a list availed to you from your phone’s files and folders just right at your browser window.
The WiFi File Explorer app has a password protection as an alternative, which I believe it should probably come enabled by default, but unfortunately its not. You may consider enabling it when using it for the first time.
The good thing about the device is that you don’t just copy files; you can also stream music and video from your Android mobile phone. The original version which retails for less than two dollars, adds the knack to create fresh directories on your phone, download several files from the device at the same time, download complete directories, stream media playlists, and many others.
Certainly, WiFi File Explorer apps can not be concluded that it’s the only wireless file sharing apps for Android phones, but it could brag as being the simplest, and for that reason, it may get huge attention from productive-minded users.
