"A new era on file sharing"

Fast File Transfer sets out a new and fast way to share files between devices

There are basically two wireless ways to share files between devices: Bluetooth and WiFi. Speed transfer with Bluetooth is quite low and WiFi requires having access to a hotspot nearby. Fast File Transfer by Florian Draschbacher sets out a new way of sharing files that keeps a good speed transfer with no need to have access to a WiFi hotspot. It achieves it by WiFi Tethering.

In other words, it uses your WiFi tech to turn your mobile device into a WiFi hotspot and create a WLAN. Then, files can be shared with any device that connects with it via WiFi. File transfer speed is obviously higher than with other technologies like Bluetooth. However, the setting up process should be more intuitive. Now, the basics steps are: click "Share" on any file you want to share, choose "fast file transfer", start WiFi on the other device, select connection you've set and type the password and finally open a web browser on the other device and enter a IP URL.

However, there's a way to speed up that process. Just tap on the instruction image to show QR codes for the current step. Using a QR reader on the recipient's phone, the whole process is faster and much easier. In addition, developer has announced that the next version will allow pairing via NFC which will make the app even more intuitive than with QR codes.

The best: high file speed transfer with no data usage (just for ads) and the receiver doesn't have to have the app installed. The worst: the setting up process.

Will Kelly from Techrepublic wrote a tutorial on how to send files from Android to iOS using Fast File Transfer: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/smartphones/send-files-between-android-and-ios-with-fast-file-transfer/6097

How to send multiple files?
Just select multiple files in your file explorer and tap "Send via" (or similar) -> "Fast File Transfer"
In some file explorers first tap "Send via" in the menu, choose this app and then your files.

I don't want to always enter the address on the receiver's phone!
Simply use the built-in QR codes or NFC support.

The transfer speed this app offers depends on the sender and receiver device.
Although I have never experienced such a case, I do not guarantee for any data fees caused by this app.

    This app only works 50% of the time. It is very unstable. I have a Samsung Galaxy SIII and want to transfer files to my iPad. Sometimes it works, and sometimes not. I know it says it does not need an internet connection, but my experience is that when I have no internet connection, it will not work. It just says 'Checking subscription status', and then crashes. Sometimes after a reboot it might w
