Moving files through USB flash drives is a common way for computer users these days. Transferring data from Android phone, for example, requires a USB cable connects to the computer and making a bridge for files to passing through.
But, that’s not the only way you have. Here, I some suggestions about the most convenient way and wireless transfer from phone to computer.
JustBeamIt: Transferring files via the internet without upload first
This web-based service doesn’t require any software. What you need is the average browser to access its main page. Just simply by select intended files from the phone, and then click Create Link. On your computer, visit that link via browser and the download option should be available.
Please note that browser on the phone needs to be opened during file transfer. This is not a file transfer protocol, instead, both phone and computer connected at the same time via the internet.
ShareIt supports Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac. While JustBeamIt.com linked both devices using the internet, ShareIt will open the bridge directly through wifi. Allowing for high-speed data transfer and similar performance like a wired USB cable. This option should be great if you regularly transfer big files from across devices.
ShareIt is available free for the major OS. You need to install this app on the phone and computer to use the service. Don’t worry; this service doesn’t require an internet connection.
Bluetooth: Old, but still reliable for small files
Despite this connection generally used for headphones and speaker, but on some occasions, it would help. If the phone and computer have a Bluetooth component inside them, it will allow file transfer without any software and works with the cross-platform.
But the pairing process sometimes takes too long, and speed performance is slower especially for transferring a large file. So, if intended data only a couple of megabytes, Bluetooth connection may be still worthy.
