When you travel or meet your friends or in your business meeting, you may need to transfer photos, songs or even large files between smartphones like Android and iPhone. There are a couple of workarounds to move files and photos between Android and iOS platform over WiFi. We recommend transferring files between mobile platforms over WiFi instead of using dedicated cables and connecting your smartphone to PC.

Transfer Files using Cloud.

You can transfer files using cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, Skydrive or any other free cloud services. We recommend Dropbox or GoogleDrive while considering stability and platform support. You can create a shared folder in your Dropbox account for your friend and upload to the shared folder to access from both ends.

Transfer Files with Apps.

There are dedicated apps compatible with iOS and Android platform to transfer files between each other. Most of these apps are using either WiFi or Bluetooth. One of the free apps you can try is Send Anywhere (File Transfer) app. This app is available on iTunes and Google Play Store.

Transfer Files via Email
