Air-Share is a Cloud-free Meta-Sharing app. Share from small screen to big screen without Screen Casting. 
** It does NOT work over Mobile-data **
Most apps have a Share button. So why not Share directly to a second device like your Android TV?

1) Install Air-Share on 2 devices
2) Pair the devices
3) Share something from your favourite App via Air-Share to the second device

** Cloud-free means it does not work over Mobile Data Networks. Some VPN apps cause Pairing issues. Disabling the VPN may help Air-Share to function.**

Air-Share & Air-Launch were created to extend the Share & Launch features for all Android apps to share intents or launch intents between devices.

It's more than a File Transfer app; but it's no Cloud service; there is a tiny web server running inside the Air-Share app. The shared data never leaves your home network.
It allows sharing almost anything from, any app with a Share button, including large data streams.
Air-Share will use your WiFi, Ethernet or Bluetooth network, it is not recommended for use on Mobile data networks. It will also Google Cast.

It can share items that Chromecast cannot. It can queue your media links on Android TV as recommendations or notifications for later viewing. You can also share from PC/Mac/iPad to Android via your browser.

The app is great for sharing between family members. Share with Amazon Kindle/Fire devices, Android HDMI sticks and older Google TVs.

Air-Share also includes Air-Launch which is designed to launch apps remotely and side-load APKs on devices like Android TV using your phone or tablet. Air-Launch is part of the Air-Share App but appears as a separate app icon for convenience.

App Launching: Open the Air-Launch app icon and choose a device and an app to launch.
APK Side-loading: Long-press an app name in Air-Launch to download the APK from the remote device.

For non-android devices, generate unique browser URLs for an HTML-5 compatible browser to share to / from your Android device. Watch demo here :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV6KzehnrHs

Your files stay on your local network. Transferred files are saved in your Downloads directory.

- share apps (APK files)
- share YouTube, Vimeo videos
- share links from your Facebook, G+ or RSS feeds
- transfer photos and videos from your Gallery apps
- share web-links, magnet urls, etc
- share cut & paste buffers between devices (long-press places text into remote device paste buffer)
- share files and office documents from your favourite file explorer (tested with Astro and ES Explorer)
- transfer and play instantly, music and movie files (mp3, mp4, etc), or queue as notifications to enjoy later
- share location , GPS coordinates, KML files, Google Tracks
- share contacts, people, vCards
- share files and web-links from any device with an HTML-5 browser on your network.

App Side-loading: You can use Air-Share in combination with "App Backup & Restore" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.infolife.appbackup) to side-load apps from your phone to your Android TV. Install Air-Share on both devices and pair them. Load "App Backup & Restore" on your phone and choose which app to share. Choose Share with other Apps, then Air-Share as the share destination. On the Air-Share screen choose your Android TV as the destination. (You must change your settings to allow loading apps from outside the play store.) As there is no Web Browser shipped on the Nexus Player, you may want to side-load one in addition to apps like QuickPic (Jpeg viewer). When side-loading from your phone keep in mind that the Nexus Player is an x86 device while your phone is likely ARM based, so native apps may have issues.

App Developers:
You can leverage Air-Share inside your own app using simple Android Intents to share content between paired devices.
See sample code: https://github.com/BlackSpruce/Air-ShareAPIDemo

You can also use "cURL" to script VIEW and SEND intents from other OS's:
see the Help/FAQ in the app for examples.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

pair with Bluetooth devices
Allows the app to view the configuration of the Bluetooth on the phone, and to make and accept connections with paired devices.

access Bluetooth settings
Allows the app to configure the local Bluetooth phone, and to discover and pair with remote devices.

take pictures and videos
Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation.

allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception
Allows the app to receive packets sent to all devices on a Wi-Fi network using multicast addresses, not just your phone. It uses more power than the non-multicast mode.

connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

GET ACCOUNTS
Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

control Near Field Communication
Allows the app to communicate with Near Field Communication (NFC) tags, cards, and readers.

read your contacts
Allows the app to read data about your contacts stored on your phone, including the frequency with which you've called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific individuals. This permission allows apps to save your contact data, and malicious apps may share contact data without your knowledge.

read the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

draw over other apps
Allows the app to draw on top of other applications or parts of the user interface. They may interfere with your use of the interface in any application, or change what you think you are seeing in other applications.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

In-App billing
In-app Billing on Google Play provides a straightforward, simple interface for sending In-app Billing requests and managing In-app Billing transactions using Google Play.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

    air share lite My unique objective with this app was to launch google maps remotely on another android device via intent. But unfortunately, besides not loading the app automatically/directly (have to go to an internal app window), I was unable to pair the device using WiFi tethering. Bluetooth also did not work for me.

  4. D Rogers-avatar

    air share lite for pc Great to allow me to side load apps from my phone to my Shield. Works every time. Any one that is having a problem with the app it's probably you. Make sure to be on the same wifi on both devices and make sure you have disabled any VPN apps on both devices before using it. If you do that it will work 💯% of the time.

    Incredibly awesome app for Android TV users and I completely agree with what another reviewer said.. rating this app anything less than 5 stars is blasphemy! It's not the developers fault that you're a moron and can't figure out what it's for or how to use it, so if you're considering rating this less than 5 stars how about doing us all a favor and go get yourself an iPhone instead. This app works flawlessly on my Nvidia Shield, MiiBox, and LG V20, and it makes sideloading and sharing apps between them all a breeze. Thank you devs for this awesome free app!!

  72. Onlyodin-avatar

    This app kills my battery, even when it is not running and not in the notifications bar. The battery usage does not show up in the battery usage list, but the Google myactivity website shows the app runs dozens of times per day even when I never touch the device.

  73. Slayerkodi TV-avatar

    Good idea but the app has a life of its own. You have to force close it in the settings-app manager. If that's not enough, it just decides to start up again whenever it wants to. Eating the battery.

Never had problems b4, about to go back several versions....Samsung Note on v4.2....FirePhone on oe os

  92. Michael Duclos-avatar

    But 1 thing needs work. The client side needs a refresh button other than when connection fails so new apps can be side loaded easily.

  93. Brian Crail-avatar

    I can't get this to pair with anything. I have multiple devices and none of them can see each other. I can ping them and my home network is open. I am not sure what the problem is. UPDATE: I was able to finally pair my Nexus Player to my sons tablet. Works great, when it works. Not sure why the pairing process isn't working on most of my stuff though?

  94. Bill Mains-avatar

    Got QuickPic up and running on the nVidia shield TV and transfered a few files over. Other apps don't work so hot. Air-Share renames files that I transfer, I wish it would keep names the same. Looking forward to trying out other side loaded apps. Great job!

  95. emilio z-avatar

    I cannot pair anything. I'm sure it works for most. On Nexus 5 lists the same Player many times. I select one. NexusPlayer it seems fine and accepts the pairing. On my Nexus 5 nothing changes indicating i have successfully paired. It justs give me the option for Loop-Back not my Nexus Player
