Ratings and Reviews
Does what it says, BUT...
The app really is good at tranferring data from phone to computer or back; 5 stars for that.
HOWEVER, it insists (at least on my machines) on starting when the computer starts up, and slows startup of EVERYTHING but itself after login to an absolute crawl, searching for a phone. The app isn't in my startup items, there is no option to turn this off in the app preferences, and the developer website appears to be in Chinese with no obvious ability to translate. Attempts to email the vendor don't get answered. 0 points for hijacking resources and ununresponsiveness.
This app is an amazing advertising platform
Could not connect via USB. (accessory not supported or something)
Went to the app store on my phone and found what I thought might be an app that went with HandShaker. I guess it was, because I managed to connect via wifi only to have Handshaker tell me not to transfer big files over wifi.
I wanted to use USB in the first place, but it won’t connect. Then the phone app locked up my phone trying to load an advertisement. No clicks would do anything, not even the power button. Finally managed to re-start my phone and tried the phone app again. This time it loaded a video ad which it played at full volume while I’m at work. My boss it trying to run a meeting with a full-volume Groupon ad playing from the back of the room. Again, my phone is totally locked up with this app and the ad is still playing. Someone finally handed me some headphones to plug in to the phone to silence the video advertisement.
Summary: The desktop application didn’t work without the phone application. The phone application worked amazing as an advertising platform and nothing more.
I give it 2 stars only because it's better than nothing. (You do, sometimes, need to move stuff from the phone to the computer.) But this program is buggy, hard to use, and has no support. Today when I wanted to move pictures from the phone to my Mac, Handshaker recommended a "USB Connection." Yes, I was already plugged in. But the only option was to "Continue to use WIFI connection." I've spent 30 minutes trying to figure out how to get it to use the USB, but there seems to be no option in Preferences or in the app, and no help on the web. Not very well thought out or implemented.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
