Cloud services are not for everyone. Maybe you're concerned about potential online security breaches. Or perhaps you manage a lot of data and don't want to be saddled with yet another monthly fee. Cloud provider Dropbox, for instance, offers 2 GB of free online storage--but if you want more, you'll pay $10 per month, or $99 per year, for 50 GB.

WiFi File Explorer Pro is a cloud-free alternative for managing files between your Android device and computer. As its name suggests, this nifty 99-cent app allows you to use a Web browser to download, upload, copy, ZIP, and stream files via Wi-Fi. It also supports thumbnails for pictures and videos, and allows multiple batch file transfers to save time.
