The Scansfer app securely transfers files from your phone to Scansfer.com, and generates a private download key, only accessible by scanning a distinct QR code. The QR code can then be scanned from any other mobile device equipped with a camera and bar code scanner app to instantly download the file.

Sending Apps:

Scansfer provides two methods for sharing apps:
1. If an app is available in the Android Market, Scansfer allows you to send a quick download link to other Android phones to download the latest version of the app.
2. You can also send the original install package (APK) allowing you to share any free app installed on your phone. Note: this feature is NOT to be used to share paid apps. Please read all license agreements for your apps to make make sure you are allowed to share them.

Sharing Contacts and Bookmarks:

Scansfer can also generate QR codes to share Contacts from your address book as well as Bookmarks from your browser.

PayPal Payments:

Now you can use Scansfer to generate QR code payment requests from your phone. Simply enter a brief description of the transaction and an amount, and have the person paying you scan the QR code.

Full featured QR Code reader, has everything, EXCEPT the ability to generate the codes without connecting to it's website, REALLY ? QR Pro can do that.

This is a great app that shows a lot of potential as a file transfer tool. It was definitely cool to transfer a file between my Nexus One and my iPod Touch simply by scanning the generated QR code!
