The WiFi File Transfer apps allows shares your phone or tablets drive over the air allowing you to transfer data to and from the device through a simple web interface.


To start transferring files, open the application in your mobile device. The start screen will show a basic interface that will let you touch the START button to enable sharing.

The PORT NUMBER used can also be configurable. You can also protect the share with a password. All of these settings can be accessed via the apps setting page.


After typing the access address at your favorite browser, the page will ask for a password ( if set ) to continue.


The web interface is easy to use, the folders are listed similar to windows file explorer. Music, photos , videos have their own tab. Users has the option to download, delete, move , make a zip file, create new folder. As an added bonus, the drives memory usage and current battery level is also displayed.


Overall, the application is simple and straight forward to use. It has features for security and the web interface is not bad. You can download the app at the Google Play Store.

renaming default namespaces for VSTO projects in VS2008

So here is the scenario , you are starting a VSTO project and decided that your default namespace is ExcelAddInTesterApp . You created the project and started coding the project. After several days , your boss called and said "hey marvin , make use of this namespace OurCompany.ExcelAddInTesterApp , we have to add our company name to it got it?" . You get back to your machine thinking its just a simple property just like any project you've been working on. So you right clicked the VSTO project and hit properties . Boom! What the F@#$? The default namespace textbox is disabled!!!!



I've been through this and I googled for ways to do it and ended up with a blog from a Microsoft MVP telling me it can't be done because it is disabled. Then I thought of Refactoring, the beauty and grandeur of the renaming process. I selected the namespace and hit the refactor menu hoping that this would solve the problem . Unfortunately , it did not rather it displayed the message box …

Automatic Properties and Object Initializers in .Net 3.5

With the release of .Net 3.5 alongside with Visual Studio 2008 , new enhancements was again introduced . Some maybe well pronounced such as the inclusion of WCF, WPF , LINQ in .Net 3.0 and some just came unnoticed. If you have been accustomed of using a particular method or technique in implementing a certain code in .Net 2.0 , because of backward compatibility , you may not even notice that there are new ways of implementing it in .Net 3.5.

Here are two new concepts in .Net 3.5 that a developer may not notice ( at least in my opinion ) : Automatic Properties and Object Initializers . To illustrate these two , I am going to present the pre-.Net 3.5 way (.Net 2.0) and the .Net 3.5 way in creating a simple class with simple properties.

Automatic Properties

Creating a class can be tedious , especially when working with a list of properties , . One way to get around having to type the code for a private field and its public property getter and setter is to use a refactoring tool. However, …
