Face to face share Apps, Photos, Music and Videos without WIFI or data cost
Flashare is an app from the Timo Group that lets you easily transfer and share files from one device to another. Also called Flashare File Transfer, it gives you a convenient way to share information without relying on a WiFi signal.
This app is incredibly easy to use because it only requires a few touches to work. Before you download a copy and imagine sending dozens of files though, you should keep in mind that it only works on devices that both have the app downloaded. Though it works on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones, it may not work on all devices. Some LG users had problems getting the app to work.
The buttons on the home screen let you pick between sending or receiving a file. When you share data with another user, you must have that individual press the opposite button to the one you press. You must also do this at the same time. This allows the app to find a connection between the two of you, which is what it uses to send the file to the other device. If you need to share files across two of your own devices, you may need to have someone press the button on that second device for you.
A nice benefit to using Flashare is that it doesn't require any pesky cords. When you typically want to transfer files, you need to run a cord from one device to the next and sync the two. Using this app lets you share those files faster. If you send a file to a new friend, you can then add that individual to your contact list through the app, which will make it easier to share data in the future. This is a helpful addition for those who need to transfer documents to coworkers or classmates.
Flashare also allows you to transfer multiple files at the same time, which comes in handy when using devices that you own. You can view all the files you are in the middle of sending and receiving at the same time too. This feature of the app shows you the total size of each one and the amount sent, which can give you an idea of how much time is left before the transfer completes. You can also click a button at the bottom of the screen to select from other transfer options such as email or SMS message. Anyone who shares files on a regular basis will find that Fileshare is a helpful app.

- RECEIVE_WAP_PUSH: Allows an application to receive WAP push messages.
- WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.
- ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
- ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
- BLUETOOTH: Allows applications to connect to paired bluetooth devices.
- BLUETOOTH_ADMIN: Allows applications to discover and pair bluetooth devices.

If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
- SET_ALARM: Allows an application to broadcast an Intent to set an alarm for the user.
- SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. Very few apps should use this permission; these windows are intended for system-level interaction with the user.
