    Default Application request - file transfer

    It would be nice to have an app that allows easy file transfer from the phone to the watch without the necessity of hooking up to a computer. Hey you app challenge app developers, is there a way to do that?

    If there is an existing way to do that via bluetooth, I have yet to find it.

    Are you developer or user?
    Yes, It should be possible to do it. There is Samsung Accessory Protocol SAP that uses Bluetooth to transfer files back to phone

    If this request is wanted by more users in the forum, I will consider it.. maybe at first version simple file transfer for photos and videos?

    I don't know why "Share" is disabled in the Gallery App ..

    I would also absolutely LOVE an app that would allow the transferring of files from phone to watch!!!!!! I particularly am interested in moving files like mp3 files and themes (.wstheme files) from the Watch Styler application that need to be moved to the Gear 2's "download" folder/directory sometimes. Currently, without a computer this is basically impossible.

    If the app would allow us to pick and choose the files and where they are to be "copied to", that would be OUTSTANDING!

    Thanks.

    I am a user. I have done some development in c++, but it has been years and years and i have no interest in relearning how to do this stuff. I think it would be a popular app. Photo and video would be a great place to start, but wstheme files would be an instantly popular file type too.

    From phone to Gear needs hell of work. I must create android file browser app first which sadly I have no time for "long" android development.
