...direct file transferring apps for Android, at least IME. Using Dropbox (etc.) for moving over multiple (especially large) files should be faster overall. YMMV.

Hi,

When you want to transferring files from your android device to other mobile device, Bluetooth or USB cable is the most commonly used medium. They work absolutely fine but there is a better way to do it.

With the connectivity options like Wifi, you can transfer files from and to your Android device without using cables at a faster transfer rate than Bluetooth. you just need an app called Airdroid that you can download for free at Google Play Store.

Airdroid is one of the highest rated apps in the market that can be both used to receive and send files wirelessly between your two Android device.

I hope you can come back with a solution since about anything on a computer is hacked today.

Does that mean we need to stop using these things? (some folk do!)

Have you found the best solution yet? If not, better try a phone transfer app. Here's one I'm using, Apowersoft Phone Transfer (I incorporated the dl link below, just in case you can't find the app). With this, you can transfer pictures, videos, musics, contacts, and docu files. The app is free of charge too so there'll be no limitations.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
