File transfer with Galaxy S3?
Ok, Google's got me looking at Android tablets again. But then they go disabling USB OTG unless you root. And have a penchant for not offering external SD cards (you're not Apple!).
So is there any way to easily transfer files between my Galaxy S3 and a Nexus 7? I figure with 80GB on my GS3 and with OTG working fine, I could use it as the file store and move files on and off the Nexus 7 as needed. But only if I could do it easily and on the go, at will.
Anyone get anything working? Found one thread showing the NFC stuff isn't working and another where the Nexus 7 doesn't support Ad Hoc wifi, so it's not too promising so far.

I'm looking for the same solution and I specifically don't want to use a cloud service. Although I need to transfer between my GS3 and my dual-booting, CM9ed TouchPad.
For one, security: the files I'm moving are too sensitive to trust to middlemen. And second, it's dumb; if both devices connect to the internet via Wi-Fi they should be able to connect to eachother. And third, I want to do this whereever I am without hunting down a Wi-Fi connection for the TouchPad.

Re: File transfer with Galaxy S3?
I was able to move files from my Samsung Fascinate to the N7 using File Expert. I went to Share My Contents in File Expert and then used Start Share via FTP on the Fascinate. On the N7, I went to Network and then FTP Client. Worked perfect for moving files. I don't know about streaming music or video yet. Haven't tried it.
I used it over BLuetooth as well but had some issues with it losing the connection. FTP worked with no issues.
Hope this helps.
