You can send files from pocket ftp server to android via wifi if both devices are in same wifi network

Here is link to app
Pocket File Manager | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

Tap and hold on any file, select "via http" and in new window you will see HTTP URL to download file. On adnroid device enter URL into the browser and download it.
If android has NFC, you can just tap your windows phone to android phone and file will be downloaded automatically.

You can also run FTP Server on Windows phone and use FTP Client on android phone.

please tell me how to use easy transfer...

If you want to receive files from other device, make sure you turn on your internet sharing(it doesn't use any data, so don't worry). On the other device, in the easy transfer app, you would get a link. Type that link into your phone, done. You can now share files via Wi-Fi

You can start a server ftp in your windows phone like FTPServer
  1. Start the app
  2. click to + and add the folder you want to share (for example SDCard)
  3. Right swipe to password and set user and password
  4. Left swipe to connect and look at the IP address

In Android, you can use ESExplorer
  1. Start the App
  2. Right swipe to network
  3. Click on new and select ftp
  4. Fill the field:
    • Server: (The IP address you read on your windows phone)
    • port: 21
    • user: the user you put on your windows phone
    • password: the password you put on your windows phone
  5. Click ok and click on the connection.

Now you have access on the shared folder of you windows phone, in read/write

From a windows computer, you can do the same with fillezilla, and access in read/write to your windows phone.

We've just launched an updated Feem for Windows Phone 8.1 and Feem Metro for Windows 8.1.
You can now transfer any type of file (and folders) over Wi-Fi between mobile, tablets and PC.

Wow!! I have tried it . Awesome :)
but the UI is little confusing and you have to manually connect to WiFi network of other device and then open the app on both devices.
Its good at least we have something.

Still need some good UI tweeks! But its worth.

Try the app "Easy Transfer". It's super fast & you can transfer files with out any external WiFi (via own wifi sharing feature ) connection to any WiFi compatible device of any OS.
