Google extends Files Go offline sharing app beta to more users

Despite all of Google's effort to prevent malware from being transferred to its official Play store Mobile App, the company has continued tripping up-to with a very alarming regularity as of late. Another additional feature is the ability to transfer files from your phone to a friend's handset in the immediate vicinity.

Given how all the slots in the early access program were filled earlier this week, many turned to sideloading the app. OEMs have made it a point to include custom file managers in their ROMs, but with Android 4.4 KitKat, the Documents provider gained basic file management capabilities. We have not tried the app yet to see how the feature works in practice. Lack of proper file management is often blamed for poor performance of most Android phones. Importantly, Files Go would spot and remove spam as well as duplicate images to free up storage. Tapping any opens a file viewer to an "All" tab. However, the audio, video and image files can only be shared within Bluetooth range.

Files Go is meant to be a smart storage app, as it includes features to remove unwanted items, duplicate files, and more. The app itself is 5.41MB, which means it is not as big as other file sharing apps like Xender. The UI shows a radar-like interface to initiate transfers between two devices - with the caveat that both devices needs Files Go to be installed.

The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS)
Reinhart Inc holds 0.04% or 3,635 shares in its portfolio. 6,000 were accumulated by Spirit Of America Mngmt Corporation New York. It improved, as 77 investors sold DIS shares while 606 reduced holdings. 102 funds opened positions while 360 raised stakes.

The app is somewhat similar to Apple's AirDrop, but rather is positioned as a "smart storage manager" that allows users to share, manage and delete files. It will compile the list from the last month of apps that you have used and not used.

Suggest removing apps you no longer use to keep your phone fast & feeling new. Google has enforced software to pinpoint and block malicious apps running on Android gadgets and checking developers' identities as well as preventing those with a history of violation.
