    Hi All,

    flash transfer app is badly needed for WP 8.1, we cannot transfer video/large file to other devices. since "Files" enable to share files through Bluetooth but it is too slow to transfer..

    i'm waiting for this app, just stick to bellow line

    "things are changing, things will change"............

    thank you!!!

    Flash Transfer, Air Droid etc are apps that use WiFi Direct. I don't think WP8.1 supports WiFi direct right now.

    On the contrary, you're the first person I've seen who's calling Wi-Fi Direct as Flash Transfer. It's an OS level feature that has to be enabled at the core which at the moment does not exist on WP.

    But then, Miracast works on WP. And it uses WiFi direct as a means of data transfer. That's what really confuses me.

    It does exists. It has to be enabled by firmware updates (cyan update which includes most of the new drivers for windows phone 8.1 ) Windows Phone 8.1 Features | Windows Phone Central

    It might be supported (in a way) but the functionality to use it might be missing in the API, may be a developer can chip in and answer your question?

    The features shown in the link are derived from the SDK right? I don't think all the features made it to the final build of WP8.1. I can find many which are missing. If Cyan enabled the features like WiFi direct or OTG(as stated in the SDK), then L630 should have it but it doesn't.

    Well in that case why is Wi-Fi direct for file transfers not supported on the 630 which already had the Cyan firmware?

    With WP8.1, Wi-Fi Direct is available but only to phones that support WFD. I'm not sure if the 630 is a WFD capable phone and haven't found a list of the phones that are capable but, its not all phones running WP8.1.

    Photojet only allows transfer of photos and music, not video files...
    And also, it requires external WiFi for transfer

    If WP allows internet sharing, why isn't data or media sharing supported, can't that be achieved in a similar way..

    it depends on chipset.MaybeSD400 does not support Wi-Fi direct ? I am sure SD800 support Wi-Fi direct.

    Take a look at this link -

    Wi-Fi Direct uses the same silicon

    Manufacturers don't need to add extra radios to their kit: the idea is to have Wi-Fi Direct as part of the standard Wi-Fi radio. It's backwards compatible too, so you don't need to throw out your old Wi-Fi-enabled kit.

    The Wi-Fi alliance currently claims that more than 1,100 devices have been certified since October 2010, including televisions, smartphones, printers, PCs and tablets.
    If I didn't get this the wrong way, WiFi direct is backwards compatible. Which means, any phone which has the latest WiFi standard should automatically support WiFi direct.

    I thought this too but, doing a search on the Wi-Fi Alliance website for WFD enabled phones, shows that its not all devices.

    Say you do a search for Nokia. It list the 630, 635 and 930 as the only three WFD enabled...

    I was able to find all the phones in the list. I just had to search Nokia. Every single Lumia is listed there, including Nokia X, XL etc.

    Awesome. Wonder why it only listed the 3 when I searched. Either way, that's good news and I do have the WFD Class saved so I can look at I some more and hopefully understand WTH it all means. Might be worthy of an app. :)
