Several small software to help you solve cross-device file transfer
As the title says, I am here again today to recommend file transfer software to everyone.
Speaking of which, I have written several articles and shared several methods with you about transferring files between devices in a LAN. These methods can be roughly divided into two categories.
The first type is to use the FTP or SMB service of the computer to transfer files. As long as the shared folder is set up on the computer, and then the shared folder is added to the mobile phone, the file transfer can be realized.
Using this method to transfer files is very fast, almost dozens of MB/s, and you can preview files without downloading, and many mobile phones come with this service, so there is no need to use third-party software.
It’s just that it’s a little cumbersome to set up, and usually it can only share and transfer files between computers and computers, and between computers and mobile phones/tablets, not between mobile phones.
As for the second method, of course, it is to use third-party software. There are quite a lot of third-party software on the market that support file transfer functions, such as AirDroid, LANDrop, and Kuaiya all belong to this category.
Although the speed of transferring files through these software is average, it is more convenient to use. After downloading the software, you only need to open the software to use it, unlike FTP/SMB that requires manual configuration.
The software called “LocalSend” that I want to introduce to you today is actually nothing to say, because its function is the same as the several software I have introduced before, and it is mainly used to transfer files.
And it also provides full-platform clients including Windows, Android, iOS, macOS, and Linux, which means that we can transfer files between computers, mobile phones, and tablets arbitrarily.
It’s just that there are two places where it does a good job in my opinion.
The first is its interface, which is very simple. You can see that the entire client has only three interfaces, which are receiving, sending and setting. The receiving page displays the name of the device:
On the sending page, the files waiting to be sent and the nearby devices that can receive the files are displayed:
Once we want to modify the device name or file save path, we can modify it in the settings. Thanks to the open source software, there are no pop-up windows or advertisements in any form on the client side.
There is that it supports automatic receiving and saving files.
As long as we enable “Quick Save” in advance, whenever other devices send files, the software will automatically receive and save the files, eliminating the need for us to manually click to confirm receipt:
OK, this is the basic situation of this software, the software download link is placed below, and interested friends can download it and try it:
At the end of the article, let me help you briefly sort out how to choose from so many mutual transmission methods.
If you mainly transfer files between your mobile phone and computer, and you need to preview files such as watching movies on your computer with your mobile phone, you can choose to share files by FTP (portal).
If you often need to transfer large batches of files from your computer to your phone or tablet, you can choose MFiles as a software.
This software directly integrates the transfer function into the right-click menu of the mouse. We only need to select the file to be transferred and click Send in the right-click menu, not to mention how convenient it is ( Portal ):
If you just want to transfer files between mobile phones, mobile phones and tablets, you can try LANDrop ( Portal ) and the two software I introduced today, LocalSend.
To be honest, the transmission speeds of these two softwares are similar, and the main difference lies in the interaction, so you can download both softwares and experience them to see which one is more suitable for you.
Of course, if you have other more useful cross-platform file transfer methods, you are welcome to share them in the message area, thank you for watching!
