I DID NOT SEE EXPECTED RESULTS IN USING LANXCHANGE. IT DIRECTED ME TO MY DEFAULT FILE EXPLORE WHEN AIMING TO SELECT TRANFER FOLDER. MY DEFAULT TRANSFER FOLDER ONLY ALLOWED FILE TRANSFER, I NEEDED FOLDER TRANSFER. PRESENTLY, I USE AIRDROID(WIFI) AND SUPERBEAM(NEAR FIELD COMMUNICATION), NIETHIER OF THEM TRANSFER FOLDERS. AIRDROID IS VERY NICE.

Java based, should work even on BSDs with OpenJDK, but I have only tested it on Debian. Wish it was on F-droid.

Love to know how you set it up?

The developer himself says this to a question about any recent updates:

" Not really :/ I think it should mostly work, and I still hope to squeeze in some time at some point and make some minor fixes, but I don't know if I will have the cycles for bigger changes. Also Java on Desktop is just so annoying to work with :(

"
