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.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
