If you do have problems using this application on your WiFi network, it is most likely a configuration problem with your router/network. Please contact the developer if you have any questions and he may be able to help you ... but please don't rate low because your network isn't configured properly - that isn't the application’s fault ;)

I've used serveral different types of apps like this to transfer files between my machines and this one works just as great as the others and is a very good app.

If it has any negatives I would say it is less clear on stopping sharing once you are finished with it. Most of the other apps have a "Stop" button in one for or another, this one does not. To stop the server you must hit the back button, if you exit using the home button it will leave it running in the background leaving your phone open to anyone familiar with the program to steal your data if your on a public wifi or somewhere else besides your home.

With the default configuration being no password, I can see a lot of users accidently hitting hitting the home button and leaving their phones wide open. Peole just don't pay attention, they need big buttons that say "stop" and "start".

So great app, but I would warn people, make sure you exit using the back button so you don't leave your phone wide open to those who would steal your data and to the developer, I'd make a big STOP button because most user are trained to exit apps using the home button which in this case is a security risk. As such thats why I give it 3 stars, because anything that leaves a phone wide open for attack using a normal way of exiting is flawed.

If developers could all agree on one way to exit an app this wouldn't be a problem with me, but as it stands a lot of devs disable the back button to get users to use the Home button to exit, which in this case will leave the service running.

Product does exactly what it says, and seems to work fine. The big problem is that it by default is wide open to anyone to pull your files off your device, and even if you secure it with a password it is trivial to snoop the password since it is broadcast in plain text.

This app is awesome, well worth $0.99! So far has worked flawlessly. I cannot say enough good things about it, I would highly recommend it to anyone who sideloads anything from their computer to their device, in my case Kindle Fire.

I've been having issues connecting Kindle Fires (we are a 2 Fire family) with USB for file transfer from PC to KF, (a story for a different post) but this app makes it a mute issue. Connectivity is faster over WiFi than with USB anyway, pictures and songs take seconds and a 30 minute .mp4 video only takes a couple minutes at the most.

I've read older reviews about security and inability to shut down app but it can be password protected and an exit button is provided, both are accessible in the menu.

Edit 7/28/2012
Based on threads found on Amazon Kindle Fire forums, I am not the only one who has problems connecting via USB to a PC for sideloading. I cannot stress enough how much aggravation this app has saved me.

[edit] Here's a re-evaluation of my original review now that I have more experience with my Transformer:

* Computer access using the USB port works perfectly fine. I'm not sure if this was the initial batches of Transformers, but I was misinformed and never verified myself if this was the case for mine. I can access both internal and external drives via USB without issues (other than slow access).

* The program has been updated to allow virtually unlimited amounts of files to be transferred. You now have an ability to add folders; however, it's lacking in the ability to over files around/organizes. So it's inferior to USB access on that end.

* Security: This is not too much of an issue for me because unless you're on a shared, public network, and the person knows what IP address your phone/tablet has been assigned, it's unlikely that someone will access it. Are you going to head to Coffee Bean/McDonalds/Kava House/Starbucks and use Wifi explorer to send your own files across the aether? Probably not, but you're more likely to do it at home where the environment is more secure (that is, if you password-protect your router).

So even if by default it's not protected, for me, it's not a terrible concern unless I'm actively looking for an unsecured connection and purposely broadcasting my phone's IP. Besides, if you're that concerned with being protected, you wouldn't be on a public, unsecured, wifi hotspot and you would more than likely more looking for a more secure option to connect.

I've had my Kindle Fire HD 8.9 for about 5 weeks. This was my first tablet device of any kind, and I've never used a smart phone, so everything was new to me (great fun for me). From day one I was surprised that the only way to copy files to and from my networked WiFi Kindle was with a USB cable. Then I discovered WiFi File Explorer Pro. WFFEP running on the Kindle turns it into a web server. Entering the Kindle's URL into Internet Explorer on my PC gives me access to the entire Kindle file structure, letting me manage my files without a cable connection between the PC and Kindle. Great. My only problem was that I couldn't login to my Kindle when I set a password on WiFi File Explorer Pro. Then I realized it's because I always run IE with all cookies blocked. Apparently WFFEP sets a cookie when you enter the password on the login page in IE. Unfortunately, WFFEP doesn't warn you when you have cookies blocked. It just redisplays the login screen and leaves you mystified. Adding my Kindle's URL to the list of allowed sites in IE's Tools/Internet Options/Privacy tab fixed my problem.
