    Actually after reading quite a bit on this topic , I have known that for flash transfer or 'wifi direct' a chip is required inside the phone which micromax first put in its android phone and the feature was is called ' swipe n share ' ...and as i have witnessed in my android friend's phone ...the transfer is very fast even for large files

    Dear friends the flash transfer app no longer works in android with kitkat update! Or any other similar apps like that, and instead of asking a third party to develop a app, ask for the wifi direct feature in Windowsphoneuservoice.com

    From what I've read, it appears that it will more than likely be included in the OS but, lets be honest, uservoice is great and all but you can't always expect the manufacturers to do everything for you. Third party is what makes ALL Operating Systems thrive.

    it will be great if you share me the links; but i/we need app like "Flash" which will serve the purpose. it will be handy if we transfer things phone to phone :)

    i guess only the 630,930 and maybe some of the older flagships like the 1520 and the icon will support wifi direct properly going by the miracast enabled lumias
    btw any idea if otg and wifi direct are present in the sdk?if so will it be supported by the 620,720,820 and 920 or only newer phones?

    Don't know Flash Transfer!

    You're the first person I've met that doesn't know Flash Transfer!
    It is a wifi tranfer application created by micromax, for android.
    Didn't they recently announce they were releasing WP8.1 handsets? What's the betting they have that as an exclusive app.

    micromax makes very half baked products worse than most other companies believe me
    they are cheap but have poor build and after sales,worse than samsung in fact
    i wouldnt expect them to make a decent app for WP

    I've looked at the SDK and no, its supported on all phones running WP8.1, at least so far that's what I've dug into.

    -----------------

    For those interested. I have gone through the SDK and actually found a sample from Microsoft for Windows 8.1 and copying it over to a WP8.1 project and so far no issues. Will have to wait for wife to come home tonight with her phone and see if I can get a working demo going. :)

    This app requires external WiFi as well, where the hell are you gonna get this for example while travelling or on your school grounds...
    Do check out how the thing works in android, IT DOES NOT REQUIRE EXTERNAL WIFI CONNECTION...

    Sadly, it isn't working yet and I've come to the conclusion that its not all phones. My wife and I only have 521's and I don't have access to another phone to test.
