Share via HTTP

File sharing tool

N.B The app doesn’t make an entry in the app list: only the share menu.

Share files from your phone to one or many, quickly and easily. Just share the item via the Share Menu and a mini web server will be started allowing others to download the file. If there are multiple files a zip archive will be created on the fly. If Barcode Scanner is installed a QR code can be produced with the URL. It will only work if the recipient is on the same LAN if you use WiFI but should work anywhere if you use GSM (2G/3G), though more slowly. The server can be stopped at any time from the screen that shows the URL (press the back button if you’re on the barcode).

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
