We Recommend: Transfer Videos And Photos Between Devices Using Wi-Fi Direct (Video)
Wi-Fi Direct is slowly replacing Bluetooth as standard for transferring files between mobile devices. Devices like the Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy SIII include native support for this new standard. Using Wi-Fi Direct you can transfer large amounts of data between compatible devices at a much faster speed then Bluetooth.
Wi-Fi Shoot! is the first app available on the Play Store to use the new standard for transferring media files. Even though in it’s early stages of development the app manages to do a pretty impressive job. If you own a Wi-Fi Direct-compatible device, you can easily share photos and videos with another device using the same standard. Once installed you can use the Android share menu to begin transferring files by selecting Wi-Fi Shoot! from the list. After that, simply open WiFi Shoot on the receiving device, and once they have been paired, you can view the files.
Given the fact that Wi-Fi Shoot! is still a Beta release it is possible you will encounter some problems. The app will let you share only files store locally. Don’t expect to be able to transfer content from your favorite online storage services. The developer also notes that the Galaxy Nexus is known to be “a bit weird during connection.”
Wi-Shoot! is available for Free from the Play Store.
