Transfer files from your phone without incurring mobile data charges

China's Xender promises to make file transfers from the phone easy while avoiding mobile data charges through peer-to-peer networking.

In phone-to-phone file transfers the app creates a Wi-Fi hotspot that Xender users nearby can use, so that photos, music, files and apps can be transferred from one phone to another. The capability could come in useful for migrating content from an old phone to a new one, for instance. The app does not have file size limitations, will transfer files across different phone platforms, and enables file transfers up to 50 times faster than via Bluetooth, the company said. 

Xender also provides a PC connection function that works through the browser for transferring files from phone to PC or Mac or the other way around.
