How to wireless transfer files between an iOS or Android device and other devices ( Pc, etc ).
This operation involves using an app called File Drop. This app is compatible with all operating systems.
After you have installed the File Drop version related to your platform, on your first run of File Drop you will be greeted by an interface similar to any other file manager.
In that interface, you can add videos or photos from the Gallery folder on your phone, you can easily create folders to sort your content, and also here will appear all the documents that you will receive.
From here too, you can create notes that you can store them on the phone or transfer them later. A large number of the documents you can save can be opened and transfered using this app. This detail though matters less, since any document, photo or video clip can be opened in a third-party application that is installed on your phone.
To receive one or more files, first do a tap on the + button in the lower left corner of the screen. Instantly there will open a window titled “Receive Files”, where your device’s IP will be displayed. Only now, your device appears on the File Drop window of other users of the application, and they can initiate a data transfer.

File Drop also supports Bluetooth file transfer.
You need to Bluetooth activated in the device setup menu (Apple or Android).
Similar to the capture below, if someone wants to send you a file, you can press either Accept or Decline. The last one (Decline) defines the refuse transfer. The progress of the transfer will be evidenced by a loading bar.
It is worth mentioning that I experimented transfer with files up to 100MB successful, and I am sure I would not have encountered any problems with larger files.
To send documents from your iPhone, iPad or Android device, you must follow several steps, beginning with definition of files that interest you, in the File Drop window.
Make a tap on the Edit button in the top right, mark the documents that you want transferred, and click on the icon in the top right of the window – with a square of which an arrow comes out.
A menu will be displayed, where you can choose to copy those files, delete them or send them via File Drop.
Choose to send files by File Drop and it will display a new window that shows you all the surrounding terminals or systems running the same application (File Drop).
Select one of them and confirm reception of the files from the receiving device.
That’s all !
