Ultimate quick and easy file sharing with all devices, over local Wi-Fi/WLAN network and over internet.
It provides a faster way to share files than Bluetooth as it works over local network.
The shared content is accessible via web browsers and file managers which supports DAVFS / Webdav.
First connect the mobile and other devices to the same local network (Wi-Fi, Hotspot, WLAN) and use the shown network address in browser after start.
The network address is not adjustable from Remote Multi Drive.
The network address is an unique identifier on network and most of cases it is given by a Wi-Fi router when the connection is established.
If no Wi-Fi network available you can use Wi-Fi Direct or hotspot mode.
Wi-Fi Direct allows Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or later devices with the appropriate hardware to connect directly to each other via Wi-Fi.
Not works with all 3G connection, depends on internet provider.
