Default Transfer files via web server hosted by your Dinc

Ran across this program while on my daily search through Appbrain. It turns your Dinc into its own web server where you can move files to and from your SD card. Very simple program that works very well. No more do I need to dig out my cable to to pull one picture from my phone. Used the free version for about 60 seconds and bought the full version.

Cons-
It only works over WIFI (unless you setup port forwarding) and does not work well if you plan to transfer a large number of items because you have to move them one by one. Does not see built in mem, only SD card. No encryption is used but if you are using it over your WIFI you should already have encryption so thats a wash. Free version only pushes from PC to phone. Paid version ($1.07) goes both ways.

EDIT: Looks like you can upload and download multiple files but zipping the parent folder and move it that way. Still no way to select multiple individual files.

Hope it can help someone besides me.

FTPserver looks good thanks. Don't like that I have to use a ftp client but it is helpful.
