Transfer Files Via FTP With FTPDroid

Getting stuff like files and folders from our computers onto our devices can sometimes, depending on the device, be a bit tricky. Devices like the Asus Transformer, for the time being do not have the simplistic luxury of other Android devices of connecting and getting a pop up asking you if you want to charge or connect your device as an external storage. Moreover, what happens if you need something from your work computer but do not have the cable with you? Worry not because there is a newly ported FTP client around. FTPDroid is a native Android port of Pure-FTPd and it was ported by XDA member berserker_devel. This app is light weight, very easy to use, and the best part is that it can be used with a plethora of devices. Looks like mounting and unmounting your SD card is a thing of the past, and aside for the need to charge, you can safely put your cable away. It should work with most Android devices.

The app is still under development, so please leave your feedback for the dev if you run into any kind of bugs or issues.

The benefits of using this application are:

  • Transfer files and folders to/from any computer and your device without the need of the USB cable.
  • No need anymore to mount/unmount the SD card.
  • Easily share files with other devices (Android or anything else, see the FAQs)
  • Keep the USB port of your device safe.

You can find more information in the application thread.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
