Some of the Micromax Handsets specially the Bolt series came with a unique app called Swipe ‘n’ share that allowed the user to transfer data from one phone to another using Wi-Fi. The transfer is fast and easy and there is no need to pay the data charges.

The same Swipe ‘n’ share app has been leaked and now available on the XDA forum website. The app works with Android version 2.3.x and over. The app makes use of the Wi-Fi network and connects the two handsets that need to be within the Wi-Fi range. The transfer takes place directly over the Wi-Fi and it’s very fast.

To install you need to first download the app (listed on XDA forum) and then extract the zip and install it as you would do with any other android app.

The app needs to be installed on both the handsets. Once done open the flash transfer app (on both the handsets) and create connection (from any one handset). Accept the request (on the other handset) and start sharing your files. What’s more you can also create a group and transfer data simultaneously with up to 8 friends at a time. You can use swipe to transfer or share to transfer or simply click.
