transfer photos from your Phone to the PC via Wi-Fi ScanTransfer is a clever software that enables you to transfer photos, videos and other files from your phone to your PC via Wi-Fi and without the need to install any app on your phone. Yes, you've read correctly - no need to install any app on your phone! Simply run the ScanTransfer application on your PC, scan the QR code with your phone and select the photos or videos you want to transfer. You can transfer a single file or hundreds of photos very quickly and they are saved in a newly created "Transferred Files" folder on your desktop. How does it work? It's pretty clever actually. The ScanTransfer program starts a local web server on your PC and when you scan the QR code with your phone, it opens the local web application on your PC from where you initiate the transfer and download the files to your computer. The whole process is completely seamless and transparent, it couldn't be any easier! There are no third parties involved, everything takes place inside your local network, so your photos and privacy are always protected. ScanTransfer works with iOS and Android phones that have the capability to scan a QR code. You can scan with the iOS camera, Facebook or Twitter app, or any other QR capable app. ScanTransfer does NOT require you to install any app on your phone. The free version is now limited to 10 file transfers per session and comes with a nag screen. Copyright

Limited transfers without a subscription fee 4 stars by jpwilson Apr 12, 2018
This program is incredible to use, and makes transferring files to your computer a snap. However when I updated to the latest version I was disappointed to find it limited the number of files that can be transferred in one session. show Review details
Transfers files easily to my computer! 4 stars by phxjw68 Feb 01, 2018
This is one handy little program with a portable option too! For some reason though, I cannot seem to get it to send more than one file per session, even though I DO have multiple files selected prior to pressing "Done" and starting the transfer process. Still, it transfers file(s) very quick and is very easy to use. A keeper for sure. show Review details
