How to Perform an Android File Transfer

Like it or not, smartphones have become a part of most people’s daily routines. Asking someone if they can function without their phone will likely prompt a laugh.

Technological advancements have made it so we can do everything and anything with our phones. Think about it: Email. Calling. Skype calling. Messaging. Social media. Music. GPS. Camera. Alarm clock. Google search. Whatever it is you need, there’s probably “an app for that.”

Now, we can even work from our phones if needed, which is essential with the increasing popularity of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs.
