Enjoy blazing fast Wi-Fi Direct file transfers with SuperBeam
SuperBeam is an application that allows you to transfer one or several files onto another device at Wi-Fi data speeds. Think rates in the tens of megabits - enough to copy a full-length movie over the air in a matter of minutes. And the software is not very complicated to use. Pairing two devices can be done via NFC, which is really convenient, or by scanning a QR code. Then you just pick the stuff you need transferred and, tada! Alternatively, a web based interface can be used to share stuff with devices that don't have SuperBeam installed on them.
SuperBeam can be thought of as a much faster alternative to Android's built-in Android Beam feature. It is a worthy replacement for Samsung's S Beam as well, built to work with any Wi-Fi Direct-compatible Android device, not just Samsung phones.
SuperBeam is free to download and use on a device running Android 2.3.3 and above. You can get a handful of extras, however, with the app's paid version, including the options to change the default save directory, to send entire folders, and to transfer files from or to a PC.

I have not tried this but have tried similar apps like Send NFC and WiFi shoot. While they are still experimental with WiFi direct when it works it works flawlessly! I might give this a shot though!

For some reason I didn't like the app and uninstalled it. I started using HitcherNet.

Pair via NFC, transmit via Wi-Fi. So, S-Beam.

Except not proprietary to Samsung devices, yes.

I have been using the built in wifi direct in Samsung phones for years now. That's one main reason I buy Sammy. Super fast file sharing via wifi direct. Android is just dope period.

So do you need to have a wireless router to do Wi-Fi direct?
13. dratomic (Posts: 475; Member since: 09 Oct 2013)
no. and it transfers data like a 1gb divx movie in 30 secs

Oh ok. So basically through the Wi-Fi connection on one phone/device, to the Wi-Fi connection of another phone/device right?
