The innovative Hoccer is at the other end of the Android file sharing spectrum. Hoccer relies on mobile ad hoc networking. An ad hoc network is self-configuring and consists of peer mobile devices connected to each other wirelessly. In practical terms, this means one Android device may connect to another device without a Wi-Fi router between them.
Hoccer requires the Hoccer app installed on any device to which you intend to share data. It is available for both the iPhone and Android, which allows for file transfers between iOS and Android devices. With Hoccer you can transfer apps, images, songs, contacts, URLs, messages and arbitrary files. It also supports one-to-one and one-to-many type transfers.
Hoccer is designed for file transfers primarily between devices, and the gestures to accomplish these tasks are expressive. Data may be thrown, by gesturing with your mobile device as if tossing a frisbee. Data may also be caught, with a gesture akin to catching a tennis ball. Most uniquely, two devices can be placed side-by-side, and files may be visually dragged from one device to the other.
An advertising supported version of Hoccer is free. A Pro version removes the ads, and it is available for $2.00. You can find out more on the Hoccer website, where you can also download the app.
