How do you transfer files between your PC and your Android smartphone or tablet? Do you connect the device via USB to your computer to transfer the files? Use a file synchronization service that you have installed on your devices? Or something completely different?

If you are looking for a dead easy way to transfer files from your PC to your Android device, you may want to take a closer look at qrSend. The program is available in app form for Android, and as a Java program that you need to run on your local system. The two programs interact with each other over a wireless network, so that you do not need to connect your phone or tablet to your computer when you want to move files from it to the device.

Here are the installation instructions:

  • Visit the Google Play store and install the qrSend application on your Android device.
  • Open the developers website on your desktop system and download the qrSend program for Windows or other platforms. If you are using Windows, run the installer to install it.
  • The installation integrates a new menu item to Windows Explorer that you can use to send files to your phone.

So how do you get the files on your phone or tablet then? You right-click the file or files that you want to transfer and select the qrSend option from the context menu. This displays a qrCode on your system that you need to scan now using the application. Note that qrSend uses the Barcode Scanner app that you need installed on your phone as well for that. It will open Google Play on your phone or tablet if it is not installed so that you can install it right away.

The selected files appear on the phone then so that you can use them there. Note that while it is possible to select multiple files for the transfer, it is not possible to send folders or mix files and folders. The files are saved in a qrSend folder by default, which you can change to the device's default download folder instead in the preferences.

Windows users can remove the context menu entry again with a Registry file that the author of the application makes available on the official website.


The qrSend app is not an alternative to AirDroid but if you only want to transfer files from your computer to your phone, it may be worth a shot as it is really easy once you have set up all the programs that you need for the functionality.
