A new desktop tool transfers photos from smartphone to PC in a blink

ScanTransfer 1.0 is a new free desktop application that allows smartphone users to scan a unique QR-code on the desktop screen using standard iPhone camera and transfer images to that PC via the local Wi-Fi network.

Once run on the PC, the application displays a uniquely generated QR-code on the screen and asks the user to scan it using the smartphone. Then, the application transparently creates a local network between the PC and the smartphone and hence allows effortless transferring of video and image files to the PC.

Importantly, the QR-code shown by ScanTransfer can be read with a standard camera app for iPhone or Android Chrome browser as well as using Facebook or Twitter, no third party QR-code readers are required. In other words, copying files to a PC from a smartphone is a matter of scanning just one QR-code now.

Aside from being fast and straightforward, moving photos and videos using ScanTransfer is also safe and wireless, because the data are transferred by air using the secure local Wi-Fi network. The tool also supports multiple connected smartphones and therefore can act like a hub of a sort where media from multiple connected smartphones are stored.

Pricing and availability

ScanTransfer is free. It works on Windows 7 (32/64-bit) or higher and is compatible with iOS 9.0+ and Android Chrome browser ver. 59+.
