Making File Transfers Easy with PeerDeviceNet
Since the inception of smartphones, file transfer between devices has been common. Whether through Bluetooth or NFC, transferring files has become a cornerstone of our constantly connected mobile world. Now, thanks to XDA Forum Member peerdevicenet’s latest application, PeerDeviceNet, Android users have yet another sharing choice.
Designed as both a WiFi direct and a mobile hotspot application (for legacy devices that don’t support WiFi direct), PeerDeviceNet has a fairly straightforward design. Open the application and you’ll see three options before you: device name, network configuration, and connection settings. Simply choose what you want others to see your device as, decide whether you want to use WiFi direct or run as a hot spot, and presto—start connecting to peers and swapping files. While I do have qualms with the location of the shutdown option (under the connection settings menu), the overall feel and performance of the application meets expectations perfectly.
The application is currently in testing phases, so the developer is looking for as much feedback as possible. Head over to the original thread to give this a go.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
