2 Most Useful File Sharing Apps for Android

We've reached a point where smartphones and computers are omnipresent in society—even my grandparents have Android phones and Windows laptops by now. But as common as these devices are, they're simply not interconnected good enough to each other yet.

Surely, you can use your USB cable to plug one end into your computer and the other into your smartphone, then install drivers and click through various layers of folders to copy and paste a few files from one device to the other. But with wireless techniques like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC at our end, this complicated process is simply unacceptable.

Fortunately, numerous third-party Android apps have stepped in to fill this void that OEM's have left. As a result, there are many excellent choices for wirelessly transferring files between your different devices, and I'll go over some of the best ones below.
