Should you use your Windows Phone and wish to transfer files between the device and a laptop, tablet or even SmartTV over Wi-Fi, you'll want to check out JoikuShare (www.joiku.com/joikushare). The app has just been released for Windows Phone and enables the transfer of said files to extend functionality from the phone to other devices available, and vice-versa.
Those who utilise JoikuShare are also able to receive and send files through the web browser, which makes it rather convenient for those who wish to have quick access. Friends can also see and access files you wish to provide to the big, bad world. No additional cables or software is required as everything is transferred using dark magic (also referred to as "technology").
Multiple devices can be connected to over WiFi, which allows parallel sharing across the network. QR codes are also featured for quick access. Getting started is rather straightforward, simply fire up the app on a Windows Phone, connect to a Wi-Fi network and select "Start WiFi-Share". Files you wish to share access to can be chosen under the "Shared Files" view.
Other hardware on the same network can then use web browsers to load the shared link, or use the provided QR code. Media and files that have been selected for sharing are then accessible. It's worth noting that administrators can access, manage and download all phone files, while friends are restricted to viewing and downloading of said content. Here's a quick video that explains the basic functionality (the app is also available on Android):
We're sure many will find an app with this type of functionality useful. The interface is simple and the app isn't cluttered with areas and views that aren't required. You can download JoikyShare from the Windows Phone Store for $0.99 (listed for Windows Phone 8 only and no trial is available). Thanks, adnokr5, for the tip!
