The essence of humanity lies in being social. Man is a social being who shares things with those around him. We share our hopes and happy moments, our failure and fears, feelings and files, and so on. If we have to share a small KB-sized file with others, Bluetooth is okay. But do you know you have a faster and even easier medium to transfer bigger files? If you have an Android device with ICS or JB ROM, you can enjoy the luxury of fast file sharing with the WiFi Direct feature. If you want to know how, read this article.
Using the WiFi Direct feature to share bigger and multiple files becomes even more quicker if you have the SuperBeam app installed on your Android phone. This free app has been developed by XDA member majedev and is available at the Google Play Store.
With SuperBeam, transferring photos, videos, and other files to another device cannot be a long and drawn out process. As I said, the only requirement is an Android device with Android 4.0 or higher because WiFi Direct feature is not found in devices below ICS. The SuperBeam app takes advantage of WiFi Direct to transfer files across supported devices and lets you initiate a connection through the use of QR Codes or NFC. It works with all third party file managers and photo galleries.
The app comes with a SuperBeam Scanner that can read QR codes that appears on the phone’s screen when the file/files to be shared are selected. The app can also utilize an existing WiFi network to connect and share files between devices. If you share big files frequently with your friends, the SuperBeam app is what you must have on your phone.
