Android In June of last year, I finally decided to commit to an Android device. I had carried every flagship iPhone up through that point from the original iPhone to the 5S. To the world around me, I heaped the praise into a life transforming device, but in my tech circles, and on my blog, I frequently posted about my frustration, mostly with shackles and intentional limitations imposed. So last year, why I decided to make the jump to Android. I outlined 10 reasons why I was finally ready to make the jump to Android’s 4.4 release, KitKat. A year has passed. It's time to revisit my original assertions and complaints with some follow up and see where I stand one year later.

What's Android File Transfer?

What is it, and why do you need it? Never heard of it, and never used it in my 5 years using Android devices.

Just connect a USB cable between the phone and the computer and drag'n drop files into the Phone icon that appears. MTP support has removed a lot of the issues with data transfer between phones and PCs. No special apps or software required, it's build into just about every OS out there, including Linux.

And for those times when you don't have a USB cable, apps like WebSharing make it beyond simple to use your web browser like a file manager.
