Wi-Fi file transfer using QR codes

The integrated Wi-Fi Direct file transfer is a very handy feature, but it is a little bit cumbersome to use:

  • You have to know the device name of the target device (unfortunately I can’t set it from Pocketshare, so you have to change it in the system settings)
  • The receiver have to accept the connection
  • The device discovery and the connection to the target device can take a couple of seconds

In the most real-life cases the sender and the receiver will be both in the same local network – there is no need for complex connection handling. The new version of Pocketshare includes a simplified connection using QR codes:

The new version also includes the reworked help session with the link to my YouTube Channel – you can access all video tutorials directly in the app:
