SuperBeam For Faster File Sharing

·   0

Connectivity in phones have been developing along with mobile phones. It started with infra-red, then came bluetooth, then NFC and now the newest is WiFi Direct. Developers have formulated a new application called the SuperBeam which provides a faster file transfer process.

SuperBeam uses WiFi Direct to share any file stored on the device with another device, this is possible on a device that runs Android 4.0 or later. If your device runs an older version of Android, the application will automatically switch to hotspot mode. You can pair the devices using QR codes or NFC, you do not need to install an QR reader application because it has an inbuilt QR scanner. Another feature that SuperBeam boasts is the ability to use an existing WiFi network to connect and share files between devices.


  • Share files between devices using NFC or QR code scanning.
  • Blazing fast transfer speeds using WiFi direct.
  • Switches to hotspot mode automatically for devices that doesn't support WiFi direct.
  • Can use existing WiFi network connection between devices.
  • Share single or multiple files of any type (photos, videos, zip files, APK's)
  • Works with all 3rd party file managers and photo galleries.
  • Light and dark color themes.
  • Advanced settings

WiFi direct doesn't play well with custom ROMs. Please follow these steps to switch to hotspot (tethering) mode if WiFi direct is causing you issues:
  • Open SuperBeam scanner.
  • Tap options > settings.
  • Tap Advanced settings > Preferred direct method.
  • Choose Hotspot.
  • Close SuperBeam and try sharing again.
This application is available for free on Google Play Store.
