WiFi File Transfer is a free Android app to transfer files from Android phone to PC and from PC to Android phone over wifi. You can easily access all the files stored on your SD card. Just install the app on your Android phone and then launch the app to get the browser link. Now enter the same browser link in your PC browser. You will see all your SD card data. From there you can easily transfer data from PC to Android or vice-versa. The app also tells you the device status which includes total space available and battery level. You can also delete and move any file and you can even create a new directory on your SD card.
