For Android users who are looking for similar functionality between their devices, Portal is what you're looking for.
Edit: and for good measure, Join let's you copy your clipboard between devices. Anything you select on your phone / browser automatically cloned to your other device's clipboard. Literally Ctrl+c on comp and longpress-paste on your phone. Super convenient.
Perfect writeup, thanks so much. I very frequently use Join (and formerly Pushbullet) to send interesting links that I don't have the time to read or watch when I'm away from my computer, so I guess this isn't the best app for me. For sending files via wifi I typically use Pushbullet's Portal, but it does look somewhat more permission heavy than EasyJoin.
Portal by the Pushbullet team works well for this. You can also run an FTP server through a file manager like ES File Explorer.
I've been using Portal for a while, developed by Pushbullet. All done via web on your PC so no software to install. 1GB file size limit.
If you're connecting to a Windows PC and mounting your phone as storage to copy and delete files that way, stop it. This process takes a while for the Android media scanner to catch up and figure out what's going on.
If you want a quick way to transfer files, use Portal. It will let you transfer files quickly over WiFi. Use Android's built in file manager or literally any file manager app to delete files. This triggers the media scanner to update the file system storage. Personally, I use Root Explorer, but other file manager apps will work fine as well.
Check out Portal. It is super simple as long as your computer and tablet are on the same LAN. It doesn't send the files through any central server on the Internet or anything. Transfer is just direct across the LAN.
Install the app on your tablet. When you want to transfer a file, open a browser on your computer, go to [link], launch the app on your tablet, and use your tablet's camera to scan the QR code that the web page shows. You then just drag and drop files into the web browser and they will transfer to the tablet over wifi. It'll probably even be faster than your usual USB 2.0 transfers.
It's also nice in that it doesn't require anything be installed on the PC except a browser, which makes it easy to grab files from other PCs. For example, if I'm visiting my parents and want to grab a file, I can just use the normal process with Portal. My phone is already on their wifi, and all I need on their PC is a browser...
I like to use Portal. You just have to open a web page on your pc, scan a qr code on your phone then drag drop files to transfer. It's made by the people that made pushbullet. I stopped using pushbullet but portal is still my favorite for WiFi transfers to my phone. It's only one way though, can't send files from Android to pc with it.
Seconding setting up a dedicated NAS. But if that's too much trouble for you, you could try Portal by the guys who made Pushbullet.
(Mind you, I haven't tried it myself, but they've got a great reputation.)
If all you need is to transfer files from your PC or laptop to your phone, I found that "Portal - WiFi File Transfers" by Pushbullet works great.
Works like the "AirDroid" app (open "[link]" in browser then scan code on screen) but is free, costs nothing to use (no monthly charge) and has no ads:
The simplest option I've used before is an app called Portal - Wifi File Transfers.
Some file manager apps can also connect to devices on a network and transfer files between them. Solid Explorer can do so but it's just a trial, there are free options out there though.
I've never been able to get AFT to work with my pixel. What I do instead is use Portal to send music files over WiFi.
It's fairly quick, and will automatically put mp3 files in the music folder. I like to organize the files into folders afterwards so they're easy to manage.
if you want to transfer over wifi easily, you can use their Portal app.
Personally, I just use Solid Explorer's FTP plugin to remotely manage my phone's files
have you checked portal btw? haven't tried this but I believe this does file transfers over wi-fi. (not sure if portal has a "pro" version, but if it doesn't - it's a free app)
I've had great success with Portal, made by the same people who made Pushbullet. It's completely free and way faster than MTP.
Link Me: Portal
Screw that bot - [link]
Pushbullet has a new app called Portal for doing just this. I haven't tried it yet.
In case anybody comes back to this in the future, I just wanted to say that the guys who made Pushbullet (which focuses more on syncing notifications, links, messages, etc. between your phones and computers) made a new app specifically for wifi file transfers. It's called Portal. Another option, which I use, is Share.It.
I suggest Portal for WiFi transfer, if you're on the same connection.
Makes it easier than finding the cable and connecting it (and MTP doesn't have any benefits over WiFi transfer for me) :D
If all you need is to transfer files back and forth I found that "Portal - WiFi File Transfers" by Pushbullet works great.
Works like the "AirDroid" app but is free, costs nothing to use (no monthly charge) and has no ads:

For anyone who doesn't need an advanced file transfer program, but still wants something quick and easy:
I have been using Portal for years. While I'm not sure if there's a size limit, I can confidently say you can transfer files/folders of at least 5GB.
It's fairly quick, and I've never had any issues with it. The fact that you connect via QR Code is awesome as well. It's simple to use and is reliable, but isn't very feature rich, if that's important to you.
Have you tried Portal by the Pushbullet devs? I don't think it can mirror the screen, but I think it would cover your other needs.
If you want something quick and simple, check out Portal.
It's not fancy, but install the app and then go to portal.pushbullet.com on any computer on the same LAN, run the app and it will use the camera to see the QR code from the web site, and boom you can then drag and drop files to upload to the phone. There's no account setup or software to install on the PC or anything. The files will go directly between devices across wifi and do not bother going up through a remote server, so it's a quick transfer.
It's one-way and not fancy, but if all you need is to throw some media files over to the phone/tablet it's a very quick and easy solution. Sometimes you want to throw a few gigs of movies onto the tablet and don't want to upload them to google drive's remote servers and then redownload them to the tablet just to move them 3 feet across the room.
You can also use this free app which can transfer directly to your phone without needing to upload the file and download it again. Quick and simple.
Try Pushbullet's Portal app to easily transfer your files over WiFi. I use it to transfer multiple gigs of videos, audio, everything, no limitations.
There are many apps that will allow you to do so but this is by far the simplest and quickest way that I've tried.
Well, the Android File Transfer app is one of the most direct ways of copying files from your phone to your computer. If you'd like I can help you set it up? I just installed and used it right now.
If not, you might want to check out Portal or AirDroid, both are apps which allow you to copy files from your mobile to your computer using Wi-Fi.
Unified Remote je vrh stvar, otkrio sam pre par dana. Je l' se isplati full verzija ako si je kupio?
Portal je isto vrh stvar od ovih sto su napravili Pushbullet
I can't believe no one's mentioned portal yet. It's by the same team that created Pushbullet. Portal is fast because it transfers files via wifi.
Edit link: [link]
You could use this app: [link]
The pushbullet devs have another app called Portal used for wifi file transfers.
Check out this by the same guys then.
Checking in from Melbourne. ;)
Why should I use this over Portal by Pushbullet? [link]
Assuming Windows then this should cover making the network share: [link]
Then in Solid: (+) > new cloud connection > type: LAN/SMB > should show your computer name here and add the correct login infos
Install the FTP plugin. It has its own shortcut or can be enabled from the swipe bar in Solid. Once you launch it shows the FTP address which you then need to add as a network location in Windows: [link] You need to always activate the FTP sharing from the phone first.
Maybe this is enough help. Or then use this "one click" solution: [link] :D
I've been using Pushbullet's Portal for ages and I love it. Super easy.
Here's the right app:
and Portal from the same team.
Portal by Pushbullet is easy to set up and works through a web browser.
Solid Explorer has an FTP Server plugin which can be accessed through the file manager on a PC.
Portal by Pushbullet and Pushbullet.
Pushbullet sends your phone notifications to your desktops. You can select what apps send notifications or turn off all app notifications and only have calls and SMS sent. You can also respond to the notifications and SMS message from your computer.
Portal is an app for sending files from your computer to your phone over wifi. Install the app. Go to http://portal.pushbullet.com/ on your computer or any device browser. Take a snap of the QR code with your phone app, then drags whatever you want into your browser and it will send it to your phone. MP3's, Movies, Pictures etc. Anything. It's way easier than my explanation sounds.
Also: "Find my device" from google. Samsung has an app similar "Find My Mobile" built-in if you create a Samsung account. It basically shows you where your phone is via GPS if you lose it.

Here you go! [link]
Portal from Pushbullet team made my life easier
Look at Portal. It's made by the pushbullet team and can send files over the network. Works well for myself.
replaced it with Portal
Use Portal. Best file transfer app imo.
Try with USB debugging off. You don't need it for file access.
If you just need to move files to your phone, Portal is great. It uses wifi direct, 50+ mb/s.
Wifi file explorer (pro version adds lots more functions) and Superbeam (pro version will allow two way transfers) are useful too, both use wifi direct.
Why not just use [link] for now?
I use "Portal - WiFi File Transfers"
It is very quick and easy to use.
You could install something like Portal to push the files.
Or airdroid to keep things local
I use Portal by Pushbullet, quick and easy to use.
Portal - WiFi File Transfers:
Portal by Pushbullet. From PC to phone only when connected to the same WiFi.
This is what you need.
Portal by Pushbullet or perhaps Google Photos
Portal app. I've been using it for a while now and it hasn't dissapointed me once!
Have you tried Portal? It allows you to send folders/files via your LAN to your phone.
Portal by the guys who made Pushbullet works fantastic. I transferred large ROMs very easily.
That's what their other app, Portal, is for [link]
Funny. Pushbullet released an app just for this.
I recently found that "Portal - WiFi File Transfers" by Pushbullet works great for transferring files to/from phone & home computer. Portal works like the "AirDroid" app but is free, costs nothing to use (no monthly charge) and has no ads:
You could try Portal by Pushbullet;
Portal by PushBullet is one way, AirDroid is another. I recommend Portal because it's much simpler, but it will dump everything in folders on your internal storage, which you can later move to SD if you want. AirDroid has a file manager, so you choose where everything goes.
