Share Files Quickly with SuperBeam

Transferring photos, videos, and other files to another device can be a long and drawn out process, depending on how many files you try to move around. Now, thanks to the work from XDA Senior Member majedev, sharing multiple files is a lot quicker.

SuperBeam allows users to share any file stored on their device with another device using the application. The only requirement to fully utilize SuperBeam is a smartphone that runs Android 4.0 or later. If you happen to have a device that runs an older version of Android, the app will automatically fallback to the fail safe hotspot mode.

For those with phones that support it, SuperBeam uses WiFi Direct to send files across devices. Users can initiate a connection between devices through the use of QR Codes or NFC. Included in the SuperBeam app is the SuperBeam Scanner, which reads the QR Codes that appear on-screen once the files the user decides to share are chosen. Scan that code with the device you want to transfer the files to then your work is done. Another feature that SuperBeam boasts is the ability to use an existing WiFi network to connect and share files between devices.

This app is simple to use, convenient, and most importantly it works. Many (if not all) third-party file managers and photo galleries work with SuperBeam, so there should be no worry about not being able to access SuperBeam through your favorite file manager. For more information about this app, head on over to the original thread.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
