WiFi File Transfer

Use your local WiFi-network to transfer files from your desktop computer to GoodReader.

Please note that WiFi-networking can sometimes be tricky, there are some hidden options that can prevent normal networking. Should you have any difficulties, please consult our Troubleshooting guide or contact our customer support service.

If you're having trouble setting up a WiFi network, consider using USB File Transfer instead, which is much faster and much simpler to use.
