Portal app makes phone-to-computer file transfer a drag-and-drop effort

Portal lets you swap files or entire folders at once quickly, even if they are large, as the transfer goes over the Wi-fi connection your devices are both hooked to. The devil is in the details, though, and Portal delivers on the little things - pictures that are copied from your computer automatically go to the Gallery app, for instance, and with Lollipop or higher, you can direct the app to save them on your memory card, too. Take a look at the promo video below, and check Portal out, if you need a pain-free way to browse and move files on your phone sans cables.

So, like AirDroid?

Another option is @JustBeamIt (https://www.justbeamit.com)! It's free, unlimited, and you don't need an account. Transfers are streamed from sender to receiver, which means there's no limits on how many files you can transfer, or how big the files can be, and nothing is ever stored in the cloud. Check it out!

If I'm connected to the same WiFi, I just use the SMB protocol via SambaDroid and transferring files between my OnePlus One and my Surface Pro 2 becomes just-as easy, but with the added benefit of being able to manage (edit, delete, rename, move, etc.) ALL files on my OnePlus One, and best of all, no worrying about any potentially malicious man-in-the-middle holding my files. Not connected to the same WiFi, USB is always an option.
