Share Files Offline Using Feem, A Local File Transfer App
Last Updated on by
“I happen to be the best local file transfer app on Earth”, Feem.
Feem is a cross-platform app that works like Bluetooth but faster. You don’t need the Internet, USB stick or cable to transfer files. File transfer is done over a local Wi-Fi network, needless of a server.
How Does Feem Work?
You can transfer files from PC to PC, phone to phone as well as PC to phone and vice versa. Checkout how to transfer files with FEEM from Android to PC. As said, Feem is a cross-platform app that works with Android, Windows Desktop, iOS, MacOSX, Windows Phone and Linux.
Feem can be used for local sharing in schools, offices, homes and other places that have an internal Wi-Fi network. If you don’t have a Wi-Fi network, you can still transfer files by creating a portable Wi-Fi hot-spot in the device you are using. With this done, you can share your connection with the other devices to create a network where files could be shared seamlessly.
Your Files Are Safe
File transfers using Feem is done between devices, this means they are not done using the Internet. Your ISP cannot have access or see your files. Feem transfers are not stored in any server so no one has access to your files. The “PUSH” nature of Feem transfers make it possible for no one to get access to the files except they send the files to others.
Wi-Fi Direct: This helps to create a personal Wi-Fi hot-spot which can be used in case there is no Wi-Fi router. According to Feem, transfer using the “Wi-Fi Direct feature is even faster than using your Wi-Fi router”.
Version compatibility: Feem v4 will detect only devices with v4 installed as well as Feem 3.0 will recognize only devices with Feem 3.0.
Security: All local file transfers are TLS encrypted
Full-duplex: You can send and receive files at the same time.
Feem comes with a free and paid enterprise version. With a Feem licensed version, your app is more robust with extra security and privacy options.
Feem is in its version 4.2 as of now. The app was built by Fritz Ekwoge in the mountain-town of Buea (Silicon Mountain) in Cameroon. If you have used Feem before, share your opinion about it in the comment section below.
