    My son's bought me a Google Nexus 5 for Christmas!!! Brilliant! OS - Version 4.4.4

    They helped me get things set up and recommended QuickPic - which looks good. However, it has a Wifi Transfer mode that I just don't seem to be able to get working.

    I have selected photos, and tried to send but it sits there spinning with a message saying "Please open "Wifi Transfer" in nearby device."

    The phone is connected to the internet using the home Wifi, and the desktop is connected using Ethernet.

    What do I need to do? Do I need some sort of client on the desktop? The desktop is running Windows 7.

    What are you trying to do?

    To use Wifi Transfer mode with QuickPic, both devices need to be running QuickPic. It's a feature designed to transfer photos between phones or between tablets (I think).

    It sounds like you're trying to transfer photos between phone and desktop. If that's the case you'll want to look for other solutions. Perhaps upload them to a cloud service like Dropbox or Google Drive. Or use an app like Airdroid (for that you also install a client on your desktop). Or just plug the device into your computer.

    Others here might have better suggestions though.

    I have done as you said and connected the phone via a cable. That works.

    Many thanks for your help.

    If you want to using WiFi transfer, I recommend TeamViewer or SuperBeam. And yes, both needs client on Computer/Desktop.
