X-Link


The aim of X-Link is to make the copying of files between devices within the same WiFi network simple.
Available devices will be detected automatically. No setup is required.

The network has to support multicast messages for this to work.

In addition to the Android app there is also a PC client available (see below).

To receive files form another device simply start the app and make sure the switch is turned on.
To send files use the share functionality of your file manager app or image gallery.

PC Client
------------
The PC client is a Java (Java 6 or higher is required) application that works in a similar way as the Android app.

The PC client was tested on Linux & Windows.
According to user reports the client also works on Mac OS X.

no longer works this used to be the best app ever, but now it no longer actually functions. devices that used to use it to communicate are not longer able to recognise each other. Tested with multiple devices on multiple wifi networks.

Everything's perfect Except, maybe, it's design, which doesn't match the greatness if the app

Really useful tool Fast.. Simple user interface... No problems working it with win 7 and my sgs4... Would be great if the transfer speed and estimated time was shown...

Very Easy to Use This is a very simple way to transfer files between your phones, tablets, and desktop / laptop machines. The PC client works flawlessly in Linux (and should work just as well on any platform with a JVM). It could use a service to put large transfers in the background (though it does keep working if you use something like SwipePad to launch another activity on top of it), and Tasker integration would be nice.
