Share or transfer files between PC and Windows Phone or between two or more Windows Phones by using a WiFi connection through a web browser. Zune gives tough time in transferring data between Windows Phone and PC, at least its not user friendly for new owners of Windows Phone. Here are apps and ways to transfer data between Windows Phone and PC easily over WiFi.


This app sets up a web server on Windows Phone that can be accessed via web address on PC in the same network (WiFi) to share, transfer, download or upload files from and to Windows Phone. Other mobile phones or smart devices can also access that sharing place via web browser.

You have to install the Windows Phone app in your Windows Phone and PC client in your computer in order to sync music. It does not actually sync music files but it copies music files from PC to Windows Phone over WiFi. PC client also allows you to edit the information of songs (song title, song artist, song album, album picture, artist picture).

PC client works on versions of Windows from Windows VISTA to onwards.
