There are plenty of ways to transfer files to and from your BlackBerry. Desktop Manager presents the most prominent option, since it’s long been the way to do it. But that means connecting via a USB cable. Ditto using the memory card as a USB mass storage drive. Not that plugging in is a huge burden, but we’re in an age where that shouldn’t be necessary. Here’s to hoping that BlackBerry 10 smartphones support wireless transfers out of the box. But for now we need an app. Wifi File Transfer handles the task with ease. The app works with both PCs and Macs, so it doesn’t matter which type of computer you’re running. (Unless, of course, you run Linux, in which case you’re probably frustrated enough with the lack of BlackBerry support.) Wifi File Transfer works with both the device memory and the memory card, so you can shuffle any file you’d like, to any portion of the device you’d like. Working the app is dead simple, too. Just run it on the BlackBerry, and it will display an IP address. Type that IP address into a web browser, and you’ll see the BlackBerry file structure. From there you can upload files to the BlackBerry, download files from it, and delete files from it as well. It’s as simple as they can come, and it’s one of the more useful apps for your BlackBerry. You can get Wifi File Transfer at App World for $4.99.
