FAQs:
q: Why my transfer speed decrease when I turn off the screen?
a: Enable the option 'Lock Wifi'. If your device is running at least Android 2.3.x, you should get full speed transfer even when the screen is off, otherwise enable the option 'Lock screen' too.

q: I got the message "Can not find a valid WiFi interface", how can I solve it?
a: On some devices (Galaxy Note 2 in particular) the WiFi interface is not detected from the application, please set the option "Bind interfaces" to wlan0

q: How can I use this app if my device is connected with an ethernet cable?
a: Disable the require WiFi option and set as bind interface eth0

User reviews of SambaDroid
Have PRO version with whitelisted WIFI and ability to add user accounts. Only minor issue is that I need to unlock the phone before windows can connect, Hate MTP, love RoboCopy! I am using Windows 7 with my Nexus 4 (Android 4.2.2) and am having no issues with setting up a unique userid and password. On the Windows end you must specify "domain\username" otherwise its a user error :-)

WiFi Direct works - protip You can get this to work (confirmed on a Galaxy Note 3) on WiFi Direct by unchecking "Require WiFi" option and setting "Bind interface" option to p2p-wlan0-0 Would be awesome if the developer coded that to automatically happen when connected to another device using WiFi Direct.

Best SMB app I have found Having tried many other apps to turn my android stick into a dedicated SMB server, I can safely say this is the simplest and best out there. Already bought because its worth it! For people with an asus router and a ddns name who access their shares via aicloud webpage or however, you can see and access your android device from Lan or Wan.
