    Default Android Beam not working

    I was trying to send a picture to my friend who has a galaxy s3 with android 4.1.2 and i could send anything to her, but she was able to send an app to my phone which took it to the play store but she couldn't send a picture. On her phone it said connect lost or something along those lines. Everything was on I made sure. I've sent things using android beam before. Not sure if it was kitkat or a hardware issue.

    A few weeks back I accidentally dropped my phone on tile, nothing happened to it I don't think, I also got it wet last week near the earpiece and headphone jack. Not sure if that messed it up either.

    Sometimes the NFC chip can be in different places for different phones.

    Maybe it recognised the other phone for a second but then lost the connection. Try experimenting with other devices and see where your NFC chip is. In most cases it's near the battery or even in the battery.

    Yeah, I just tried with my Galaxy Nexus and my Nexus 5. Sometimes the 'Touch to beam' would show up on one device but not the other.
    It's not a bug or anything, so don't worry about it

    But then why wouldn't let send something if she had her phone in the home screen?

    Was S-Beam enabled on her phone? Try it again, but make sure S-Beam is turned off.
