Android Hot-knot: Transfer files by Touching 2 phones together





How To Use Hotknot

I first got to know about Hotknot when I bought my Gionee m3 mini. I had never even heard of Hotknot before then but I got a chance to test it and it was cool though not as cool as I had wanted it to be.

Have you used it before? What's your say about the tech?
