Software Data Cable : The New Standard For File Sharing.

Its a well known fact that apart from the traditional Bluetooth way of sharing files between two mobile devices, smartphones have the added advantage of sharing content using the Wifi technology. Many apps are today available in the market to help you utilise this facility, but none can match the robustness and ease of use that Software Data Cable offers.

As its name suggests, Software Data Cable facilitates sending and recieving any kind of files between two smartphones, a smartphone and a PC as you can with a physical data cable. The only difference is that with Software Data Cable, you share wirelessly. And wait, its price couldn't be better - its free ! :D

Share files seamlessly between your smartphone and PC 

With this app, sharing files wirelessly between your PC and smartphone becomes as easy as simple copy and paste. Just open up the app, tap the 'Sync PC' button and join a wifi network (or create one). Then on your PC just connect to the existing WiFi network (or the newly created one). Fire up Windows Explorer and type in the FTP address this app provides you with in the address bar. The ftp address is usually this - ftp://192.168.43.1:8888/ . Press Enter. You are ready to copy files as you normally would.

Share files at lightning fast speeds between Android smartphones

As with PC, smartphone to smartphone file sharing can also be carried out at lightning fast speeds. The speeds can also reach upto 7 mbps, which is way more than the traditional bluetooth way of data sharing between smartphones. 

To share files with another smartphone, this app needs to be installed on the other phone as well as yours. Just tap "Sync Phone' option. It will prompt whether you want to create a network or join a network. Tap 'Create a direct push network'. Ask your colleague to do the same steps as above except that he/she 'Joins the Direct push Network'. Now go to the storage area and click on the files you want to share. Tap "Direct Push'. The file gets shared at amazingly fast speeds.

Its also possible to connect with multiple smartphone users at the same time and share one file with everyone.

So, the next time you need to share large files between your fellow colleagues, bid adieu to the old school bluetooth and say hello to Software Data Cable, the Wifi way !
