PROs:
- Despite what the description says and what the app says, you really do NOT need any additional software on your computer. The app can serve the photos through the browser either as images or a zip file. Click the yellow "Start Here" arrow button on the app.
- Dropbox and other services have storage limits that might be met or exceeded. On your computer, you are only limited by the size of your available harddrive space.
- Can be a simple, effective (if not cumbersome) solution for some inexperienced users.

CONs:
- Forces portrait. WHY????
- Major Security Risk: If you do not stop the app from running in memory, anyone in the same network can connect to your tablet/phone and either upload or download images, videos, and potentially other risk-based files. NOTE: YOU ARE RUNNING A WEB SERVER ON YOUR PHONE OR TABLET!
- Uses HTTP instead of HTTPS, which is another security risk! In fact, you *cannot* use HTTPS.
- No automatic 'push' of photos or videos to your computer.
- Uses JavaScript.
- Poorly implemented transfer from computer to Android device. Uses Flash, which can be a real problem for some and is a deprecated, proprietary technology.

People have mentioned Dropbox, and a few other services. Google also now offers the ability to upload photos and videos to your Google Drive [I mean Google Plus] account (free with your Gmail address). I really love Google's and Dropbox's systems - they literally are "set-and-forget", but whenever you take a photo or video, or as soon afterward that you have an internet connection, the image(s) and/or video(s) are automatically uploaded; they are usually also downloaded locally to your computer if you choose for that to happen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good app - could be better. December 31, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a really good, user-friendly app for transferring photos back & forth between the Kindle and a computer. The only draw-back is that every time you use it, you have to bring the Kindle to the computer and type in a different webpage address, as it changes with each use. It kinda defeats the purpose of being wifi.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK - But only for Newbies! April 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
I should not be complaining as I got this app for free. But I personally find this app designed for technologically challenged users of IOS and Android devices let alone windows users. Albeit it does make Photo transfers easy with few clicks here and there.

I personally prefer ES File Explorer as it is more robust and does a whole lot more than just transferring photos and videos. It can also stream from your PC, Connect to remote servers and has much better functionality.

There are other application like Dropbox & WiFi File Explorer which does similar functions mostly for free. The Developer must work hard to stand out in the crowd of free apps available with some *must* have features that differentiates from other free apps out there.

Because it works just fine on my kindle fire I am giving it 3 stars. But there are vast room for improvements. As it stands. I do not see why someone like me would keep this app for just photo & video transfers and pay close to $2.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dropbox is better and is also Free April 22, 2012
this works Ok. If you really want to transfer photos from your phone to you computer then use dropbox. you can also transfer anything else you want including video, documents, anything. that's on your phone. And you can access it on any of the computers you use. I don't work for them but am an avid user of dropbox, simply a better choice

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs password protection April 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
This app is buggy on my Motorola Xoom. The address it tells me to type into my web browser is incorrect. It shows the tablet's address as 192.168.20.1, but I know for a fact that it should be 192.168.101.151. The address the app is showing isn't even on the same network. Typing in the correct address gave me the app's web interface, but when I tried to upload a photo, the app force closed. The picture did show up in the Gallery, however. The app always runs in portrait mode.

The app works correctly on my HTC Evo 3D. It was able to download .MPO files from the 3D camera, but it could not upload them.

Transferring pictures from my Evo to my Xoom was flawless, though I had to hit refresh devices several times on the Xoom to get it to see the Evo. Transferring from the Xoom to the Evo, on the other hand, had problems. Automatic discovery would not work and I had to manually enter the IP address. Again, the Xoom displayed the wrong address but entering the correct address worked perfectly.

-----

There is no option to put pictures in any other folder other than the default PhotoGallery; you'll have to use another app if you want to organize your pictures on your device.

There is no password on this app's web interface; if it's running, anyone who can figure out your IP address can upload photos or videos to your device or download any photos you have selected. There are network scanner apps that can identify the IP addresses of every machine on a network and what ports are open on those devices. Indeed, when I ran Fing - Network Tools on my tablet, I was able to find the open port on my phone in less than 15 seconds.
