Amazon Free App of the Day

I love checking Amazon for the free Android App of the day.  I don't care too much about the games and such, and they don't really work too well on my tablet.  But today's free app looks like a really useful one.  It's called WiFi File Explorer PRO, and it lets you transfer files between your Android tablet or phone and your computer via WiFi - no cable needed!

When you start the app, it automatically detects nearby Wi-Fi networks and supplies you with a URL address to enter into the Web browser of your computer.  The page says you'll be prompted to set up a password, which would be good on a public network, but I didn't see that option, so I'll have to look for it.  Anyway, once connected, it's really easy to see everything on your device.  You can download files to your computer, upload to your tablet or phone, and even stream files.

I just transferred some music to my tablet, and now I'm streaming it to my computer.  Yeah, I know - silly!  But I just wanted to see how it worked.  It works really well!  I think I'm going to like this app.  Be sure to grab it today while it's free!!  (regular price is $1.49)
