In this time and age, our aversion to cables has become quite poignant, what with WiFi technology being integrated into more and more products we use on a regular basis, so the expectations are high, and our tolerance is low.
ScanTransfer is a tiny app aimed at precisely this kind of users since it allows them to send photos and videos from a phone to a computer wirelessly, simply by scanning a QR code.
First things first, it is worth pointing out that the program supports handsets running either iOS or Android, but you need to pay attention to the requirements before initiating a transfer, otherwise nothing will happen.
Once you ensure your phone and computer are on the same network, you need to look into some options regarding the photo transfer process. To be more specific, you can specify whether you want to keep the original quality of your image or whether you want to compress them. Aside from that, you are asked to indicate the output location.
Once you are done, you just need to scan the QR code the application prompts you with. If you are using an iPhone, the simplest way of doing that is using your camera.
At this point, you should be able to select the photos and videos you want to transfer either one by one or in bulk. There is no limit as to the number of files you can send from your phone to your computer, and in terms of security, you may want to know that the fact that your data is sent in the local area network ensures your privacy.
During our tests, ScanTransfer behaved flawlessly, and we encountered no issues whatsoever. Its characteristic ease of use and the quick response make it a user-friendly application anyone could benefit from when trying to send files from their mobile device to their PC. Hopefully, however, transferring data the other way around, from the PC, that is, will be possible in the future as well.
