This app does exactly what it claims: It transfers any and all file types to and from your PC with your Android device. The company, DroidLinx, guarantees it or your money back.
It prints every major file type to any printer connected to your PC. Select a file on your Android for printing on your PC-connected printer and it's done!
It can save, send, or print text that you saved to the "Clipboard" in Android.
Best of all, this app works from any location. Use Wifi or 3G to connect to your PC. I travel frequently, so being able to connect from anywhere is important. FileLinx does just that.
Customer service was great. I had a few questions on port-forwarding, and they were able to help me. They were friendly and responsive. They have video tutorials on their website as well as setup guides. Their website even provides a free program that makes port-fowarding a snap!
Purchase FileLinx on the Android Market, then download the free pc-software from their website: www.droidlinx.com, make the necessary setting adjustments and your done!
It is a very handy app. It has the features of several apps in one, yet the cost is relatively inexpensive at $5.99. There are no extra fees for services and nothing goes through a "cloud server," so its more private. It really is "My PC in My Pocket."
