The future is wireless and the trend is now being carried over by android phones too. These days a very few people actually prefer to use USB cables for transferring files between their PC’s and their phones/tablets.

For me, when it comes to features, i believe in the more the merrier. So in this guide I will make use of an feature packed app to transfer files between a PC and an android phone.
