    Found a good app review from android authority that I thought I would share.

    As the capabilities of Android devices have improved, so did the speed of transferring files from one device to another. Gone are the days that you have to steadily hold two phones near each other and wait until your files are sent via infrared. One of the new ways of sharing files faster is via Wi-Fi Direct.

    Watch this video on YouTube.
    Wi-Fi Direct is a feature that allows two Wi-Fi-capable devices to connect without the need to go through a wireless access point, which allows the phone to transfer files much faster. In layperson’s terms, Wi-Fi Direct is like directly connecting two devices together without the need for a wireless router or an access point. Using this mechanism, the app WiFi Shoot! [Beta] utilizes your Android devices’ Wi-Fi Direct to instantly share your picture and video files.

    This app is useful when transferring files between Android devices. You can save a movie file on your tablet and shoot it to your mobile phone when you need to. Capture your images with your phone and shoot it to your tablet for a wider view. You also don’t need an Internet connection to use this app. All you need are two Wi-Fi Direct capable devices and the files that need to be transferred.

    The WiFi Shoot! [Beta] can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store. What do you think of Wi-Fi Direct as a new method of transferring files? What other methods of wireless transfers are you using?
