A note for advanced users
SuperBeam creates an access point using Android’s WiFi direct API’s. This essentially works like hotspot mode in old devices, but it is guaranteed to work on newer devices like Nexus 7. Moreover, this mode allows older devices to connect and receive files without having to support WiFi direct’s peer-to-peer connections.
Also, please note that this mode is currently supported by Android versions 4.1 and greater. On older versions, SuperBeam will fallback to the older hotspot mode.
Follow @SuperBeamApp on twitter (https://twitter.com/SuperBeamApp) for support and announcements.
