Default bluetooth file sharing app

so like many of u im sure you find a need to share files with ur wife husband friend ect.... its kinda a pain to do because for me she has to get my phone decide what she wants (pics music) send it to herself then accept on her phone. im wondering if there is an app that will let us connect through bluetooth or wifi and give her access to my files from her phone? like her be able to look at my gallery select photos and save them to her phone ALL from her own phone? thanks

dont know if it matter but we both have lg optimus s phones

What about this bluetooth app called Bluetooth File Transfer - Android app on AppBrain. It lets you look at the sdcard of another Android phone and transfer files over bluetooth to them. I used it to transfer a couple things to my friend once (it was REALLY slow for us to transfer a 16mb file).

You need the 'WiFi File Explorer PRO' app, $0,99 from the market, to move files fast and wirelessly from Android phone to PC/Mac and back.

That will limit the transfer to 15MB per mail. No such limitations with USB, BT or WiFi.

this still requires we both spend time messing with phones. the first app suggested on the thread is exactly what i was lookin for. now she can get photos or anything else from my phone accessing my files through her phone and all i have to do is hit my bluetooth switch. (if anyone else is interested in this theres an option that pops up when asking permission to receive files via bluetooth from whoever is sending them. u can check a box on that screen that will always accept files from that person. then they can simply download whatever they want and u have to do basically nothing)
