Image Transfer - Wirelessly send photos to your computer

Image Transfer for Android wirelessly sends all photos on the Android device to a shared folder on your computer with 1 click.

I was looking for a way to wirelessly transfer the images from my Droid to my computer. There are several file manager apps that will do this, but I wanted a super simple magic button. So I developed Image Transfer for Android using JCIFS (Java CIFS Client Library).

The app is quite simple. The only requirements are that you have a shared folder on your computer and your Android device is on the same wireless network. After setting up your shared folder, just add your destination computer IP address and the folder to transfer images to along with your username and password in the settings menu. Then just press

I am trying to set up 'Image Transfer' on my Desire, and transfer images to my MacBook.

Your tutorial showed how to set up file sharing for a more recent OS than the one I have (I have 10.4.11). I'm struggling to set up Image Transfer to my MacBook, i get the 'error accessing shared folder' error.

I have set up my shared folder as /Users/Joe/Public/Phone Photos (the actual directory). I have checked 'Personal File Sharing' in 'sharing' in system preferences.

Do I need to give a different shared folder directory? Or do I need to change another setting?

Your help is appreciated!
