WiFi Shoot it is the first (and only to the moment) app in the Google Play to use the WiFi Direct technology to wireless transmit photos and videos directly from device to device.
Graphical Design by: Sophia Coelho
WiFi Shoot uses the default built-in Android WiFi Direct API.
WiFi direct was first introduce in Ice Cream Sandwich but it’s not a requirement for a Ice Cream Sandwich device to be certified by Google to operate with the Google Play (meaning, a device can be ICS without WiFi Direct).
* Please, if you have any force close during usage, report it and tell me on the report which devices you’re using. Thank!
That way a device to be compatible with the WiFi Shoot application must be at least on Ice Cream Sandwich version AND have WiFi Direct capabilities.
Those are the only two limiting factors to be installed in any device and those are technical limitations that can’t be overcome.
Unfortunately if your specific device manufacturer (or ROM developer) did not built it with WiFi direct capabilities, the WiFi Shoot application (or any other WiFi Direct application) will not be compatible with your device.
– It only works for local media. Photos or videos from Picasa/G+ that are shown in the Gallery will not work (and probably crash) at the moment.
– ICS Galaxy Nexus is known to be a bit weird to connect.
– Asus tablets, don’t like to be invited to connection. Asus tablets also failed to recognize that WiFi Direct is off
WiFi Shoot user reviews:
After selecting Sharing via Wifi Shoot from a picture in my Gallery, and then establishing wifi-direct connection between my two devices, Wifi Shoot just forced closed, and the picture was not sent. My sending device was Asus Transformer Pad TF300, and the receiving device was Galaxy Note. From my Galaxy Note, the Wifi Shoot was not even one of the Sharing options.
But this app came to the rescue and enabled me to transfer large files from my sgs2 to my nexus 7. Awesome! Some ideas for improvement: 1. enable multiple file transfers 2. Only seems to work from image gallery, get working with all share menus like music, text files, etc 3. Its not clear how to use this until viewing the video in the play store…could make it clearer in the app itself somehow. Still, great app!
