Most of the time, we are caught in the dilemma of either downloading apps from the Google Play Store ourselves or simply getting them from a friend's phone. The latter is a more convenient way because we get to save ourselves time and resources by simply sharing mobile applications from one Android phone to another. In addition, some Android apps have to be bought and most of the time it is pointless to spend money on an app you may not like or will use a couple of times. But the setback is that we never know which mechanisms to use to share. In other instances, you may need an important document from your friend or colleague yet emailing might look so far fetched. Then we are here to present several methods to help you transfer data from Android to Android easily.

The FlashShare software is the utterly convenient app that uses Wi-Fi and allows you to share android applications, media which include photos, music and videos, and files of any capacity from one Android phone to another. It is available on all Android markets for download, however, that is not necessary. If your friend has FlashShare they can invite you via Bluetooth and you will receive the app on your phone. Once you receive it, install it then you are ready to go.

Step 1: Once you have received the app via Bluetooth or you have downloaded it from an Android market such as Google Play Store or Mobogenie, then you should install it. Once that is done, choose a name for your device. The name that you choose is what will be visible to the other phones when they transfer data to your phone. Next, choose a profile picture. You can either select one of the six emoticons set in place or select a photo from your gallery or take a live picture and use it as your profile picture.

Step 2: Create a connection with your friend. At the top of your screen, you will see a green bar with the words "Connect to friend's", press that and choose "Create group" or "Join group". The "Create group" means that you want to create a connection and that you want your friends to connect to it while join group means your friends had created a connection you are joining that connection. Both options serve the same purpose and it does not matter what you pick. You can create a connection immediately, and then the FlashShare will promptly create a hotspot on your phone to allow data transfer. Remember to make sure the Wi-Fi is on.

Step 3: Once you join to a certain group, you will be able to recognize the device and the username the owner set. All you have to do click on app then dunk your phone to any direction and the app will send. By dunk I mean it is as if you want to drop your phone and then you don't. That is the fun method, if you don't want that then once you have selected the app, a task bar appears and you can select "send". Within 3 seconds, the app will be in the other phone ready to install. Then you can send any data like apps, media files from Android to Android.

If you don't want to use the method above, that's okay. Here we'd like to show you another way - with a third-party tool. It is the Vibosoft FoneTransfer(Mac) we highly recommend. This program enables you to save all data from an Android phone to another, and these Android devices include Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC, Motorola, Nexus, HUAWEI and ZTE, etc. Furthermore, other smart phones running different operating systems like iPhone, Nokia and BlackBerry work well with this program too. Now it's time for you to have a try on this powerful phone to phone transfer software.
