Description

File Transfer App allows you to share files between your iPhone, iPad, Computer and any other nearby device.

The app provides you with two ways of sharing files between your iPhone and another device:

(1) Using a Web Page: Share files between your iPhone and any other device with any OS using the app's webpage and any web browser.

In this case the webpage is hosted by the app's embedded server on your iPhone within your WiFi network. The webpage can be accessed only inside your WiFi network.

This way you can download the selected files as a ZIP archive directly from your iPhone to PC or smartphone. And you can also upload files from computer or smartphone to iPhone.

And you don't even need to install anything on another device as long as there is a web browser and both of your devices are connected to the same WiFi network.

(2) You can also share files between iOS devices without the use of a web browser.

• You can quickly transfer any number of files (including photos and videos) of any size for free.

• Transfer pictures & videos in original sizes.

• Play Music: Received audio files can be played in the app's embedded music player. You can also create playlists of songs or audiobooks.

• Preserve photos' metadata in all transfer directions (EXIF, location, etc).

• In the app's settings you can select option to convert HEIC files to JPG before send them to computer.

• Your files are transferred directly from device to device within your local WiFi network. They are never stored on any intermediary server.

• The app is extremely easy to use.

• The app supports Dark Mode.

• You can also buy the Ad-Free version.

Even better than last year

2nd time using app. First time loaded pics from iPad to computer. Pics transferred with no problem. However going back I lost the pics and I contacted developer Support and he indicated that pics would not be lost or deleted and could check again with search files. Was able to find the files and was good to go. Second time loading iPhone pics to computer on WiFi as I needed the back up in order to have the battery replaced. Now found new help files which explain the procedure very well and was able to download all my files as required. Do not remember that zip file was used on first Upload but this worked well and provides another backup. Recommend to download files perhaps at 2000 or less at a time because loading a big block of files will come over but will take a long time. Then you can verify the files came over properly. Do not have a problem with ads as it’s a free app better than iCloud and iTunes which have limitations and charges for large files. Kudos to the developer for the help files and great app.

Works but Problems with App Storage Size and Clunky UI

It does work, and I had better luck with it transferring a large video file than with the Documents app on the App Store, but this app UI here is clunky. You can’t check file names at all as far as I can see, and it took me too long to figure out how to play a video file inside the app to make sure that I was choosing the right video.

But also the worse potential problem is that this app’s Documents & Data storage seems to scale up, at least up to the largest file you do, or maybe total, but will not go down again no matter if you think you’ve deleted all your files from inside the app. Admittedly I did use Import, which maybe I didn’t need to, but afterwards I then had the app’s Documents & Data storage taking up an additional 15GB even with turning off its hosting and deleting every file I did from inside the app, and completely closing and restarting my iPad. The app’s storage was still taking 15GB. So unfortunately, I do recommend uninstalling it after you’re done with your transfer job.

And remember to also check your “Recently Deleted” files in both “Files” (file explorer), Photos, and whatever app you’re doing this stuff with if it lets you, because it’s actually a Recycle Bin of stuff that doesn’t actually delete unless you tell it to delete again. But apparently we’re not able to shrink this app’s storage without reinstalling it.

EXCELLENT - recommend using Chrome instead of Edge for large files

This app is great and easy to use - it worked very well for uploading and super fast for large video file out of my iPad Pro 2018 to my PC. However I temporarily had a problem (now solved) because could not upload 5GB file from PC to iPad (smaller files worked) because it was making the web browser (Edge from MS on Windows 10) reload the app WITHOUT UPLOADING to the top upload/reload buttons. After initially posting a 3 star review I decided to try again the upload but this time with the lighter Chrome browser and it worked perfectly.
Kudos to the developer for the app simplicity. I am going to test later on the week using wired Ethernet over a usb-c against the Ethernet on my laptop because ad-hoc WiFi is no longer as supported in windows 10. I assume this app should just work fine over the wire as it is based on higher level stack standard - that will make it inmune to polluted WiFi environments in hotels and trade shows
