Flash-share is an android app which enables a user transfer/receive files amazingly fast.
Back in the days, before the release of android devices, the fastest method of mobile file transfer was the Bluetooth. Compered to the infrared (I believe some of you can relate), the Bluetooth was considered a very fast method of file transfer.
Some of you might be wondering ''Where can I find the Flash-share download link?" or "how do I download Flash-share (F.S) for my android device?". The answer to this is "There isn't anywhere you can get this app". This is because the application is no more (ie. it's not supported by android devices anymore), but there is an app which works exactly like Flash-share does and its called Xender (F.S's best alternative).

What is Flash-share?

This is an android app which enable users to send and receive files with their mobile phones to and from other android devices. File transfer with this app is extremely fast when compered to other methods such as Bluetooth, infrared etc. This is because it makes use of the WiFi and Hotspot facility of the device.
Flash-share supports the transfer of files such as videos, photos, documents, apk etc.
Not so long ago, Apple devices did not support the use of Flash-share and this is because of their copyright laws. But now, you can download this app on your Apple or blackberry device. In fact, you can also transfer files on your phone to your PC using this App.

Is Xender and Flash-share two different software's?

When android phones were first released, F.S was the most common file transfer software. As time passed by, Xender was introduced into the market and it grew so fast that they took Flash-share out of business and Xender became the king of mobile file transfer.
After a few years, F.S was nowhere to be found. Nobody knows why, but many experts think the F.S company was bought by Xender. How possible is that? Well, I agree with the experts because whenever an app company sees that they have a stronger competition and their starting to loose, they make an offer to their competitor to buy the company. This is the wisest thing to do because if better to sell your company than go bankrupt and loose a lot why trying to stay in market.

Is Bluetooth better than Xender (Flash-share) in terms of file transfer speed?


The answer is NO. Xender is 40 times faster than Bluetooth in terms of file transfer speed. Though we can't say Flash-share is better than Bluetooth in every aspects and this is because transferring small size files on Bluetooth is actually faster compered to Xender. Why is this so? Do you know that setting-up Bluetooth for file transfer is faster and easier than setting up Flash-share. Though I know some of you might disagree (you have all the right in the world to do so), I decided to compere the steps below.

Simple steps followed when setting up Bluetooth for file transfer:

  • "On" your device Bluetooth
  • Pair with the other Bluetooth device
  • Send/receive file

Simple steps followed when setting up Flash-share for file transfer:

  • Open the app
  • Click on create or join network
  • Sometimes, a verification is needed whereby you are required to scan the QR-code displayed on the other device using your phone camera.
  • Search for the file and send.

Sites to find Xender/Flash-share download links

Do you wish to download flash-share on your device?
For android users, you can get this app from google play store or apkure. The total size of the application is 17 MB.
If you wish to download the app from apkpure, you will have to install the apk file yourself unlike google play store that installs the app automatically after downloading the necessary files.
Do you know you can also send the Flash-share application to your mobile phone through Bluetooth?
If you don't have enough data to download Flash-share, all you have to do is find someone who has the app installed on his device. Open the app and click on share. You will be given two option which are;
  • Send via Bluetooth
  • Send via Hotspot
The first option is easier than the second because all you have to do is pair both devices and Xender will be sent to the other phone automatically.

How to Transfer files from your Phone to PC using Xender

The wireless transfer of large data from mobile phones to PC's was made possible by Xender. Though not all versions of Xender have this functionality, I will suggest you get the latest version of flash-share and download it. You can also get it from your friends who have updated their's. Assuming you have an older version of Xender and you transferred or received a file from another device that has an updated version of it, your phone will automatically receive the newer version from the other device and ask for your permission to install the updated version received earlier.
After updating the version of your app to a more latest one, kindly follow the steps below;
  • Open Flash-share and swipe right.
  • A side navigation column shows up and on it, you will see a navigation item titled "connect to PC".
  • The third step is to "on" you mobile hotspot and connect to it with your PC.
  • After connecting to your mobile hotspot, Open your pc browser and visit ""
  • While the age is loading, a popup appears on your phone's screen. Just click on "Accept" to proceed with the file transfer.
  • Lastly, locate your files and start the transfer.

Do I need an Internet connection to use Flash-share?

Xender or Flash-share is a free offline tool and does not require any internet connection.
In the course of file transfer with Flash-share, two parties are involved which are the sender and the receiver.
The sender is the device sending the file while the receiver is the receiving device. The Hotspot of the sender is automatically turned on by Flash-share and the WiFi of the receiver is turned on automatically so as to enable both devices connect to each-other.
As the sender, you are advised to switch off your data because is the receiver connects, he/she is able to use your data on their device.


After reading this blog-post, I hope you learned one or two things about this app and I was able to answer your question on Flash-share download procedures for android devices.
Nowadays, if I try receiving files from other devices into mine, the app keeps saying "Transfer failed". Even after freeing some space, I still get the-same error. Is it just me, or are some of you facing the-same problem?

Etisalat Data Plan

We all know that Etisalat is one of the Fastest internet service providers. Though their data plan are being considered the most expensive in Nigeria unlike the Glo and Airtel data plan which are cheaper.
The Etisalat data bundles are what we are discussing today and in this post, I bring to you all the plans, their prices and their subscription codes.
The Etisalat data plans are are categorized into three;

  1. Smartphone plan
  2. Smartpark bundles
  3. Internet bundles
Please note that once you subscribe for any of the above Etisalat Nigeria data plans, it auto renews once the expiry date is reached. But what if you haven't exhausted your data? Don't worry because your remaining balance will be rolled over to your new plan.
It is only possible for 9mobile to auto renew your subscription if you have enough credit balance to do so. But just in-case you don't want it to auto renew, simply dial *229*0#.
One of the major advantages of Etisalat bundle plans is that your unused data gets rolled over to another month and the major disadvantage of it is the cost. Believe me when I tell you that these bundles are very expensive when compered to that other network providers.

Monthly Etisalat data plans

As the name implies, they are valid for 30 days and are auto-renewed once the expiry date is reached and you have just enough balance to buy your former subscription.

₦500 for 500MB

Can you imagine that this data plan is valid for 30 days?
Yes, it is and in my own understanding, it is meant to server light internet users because I don't think this will be enough for even an average user with all the data sucking social networks around most especially snap-chat and Instagram.

Dial *229*2*12#

1000 for 1GB

Some of you might be surprised because with this amount, you can get better data bundle on other networks. But considering the fact that you might be in an area where their service is better, some of you might prefer doing this than going for huge offers from other providers and not being able to to use 100MB till month end LOL.
Just like the one I mentioned above, this also has a validity period of 1 month and to subscribe for this, just dial the below code.
Dial *229*2*7#

1200 for 1.5GB

Yeah, this is what you get with your 1200 Naira, just 1.5GB. This is less than what you get for 1000NGN from some other networks. 
Are you still interested in subscribing for this etisalat data bundle?

Dial *229*2*25#

2000 for 2.5GB

Can you imagine what they are giving us for 2k?
Just 2.5GB. To be sincere, these people need deliverance. With globacom, you can buy 2GB for 1k and use the other 1k to buy chicken or go to Mr. Biggs and chop rice LOL.
To subscribe for this plan, use the below subscription code;

Dial *229*2*8#

2500 for 3.5GB

Well, so far, this is one of the most reasonable plans I have on this list. Though I am not saying it's a very good one, but it's manageable. The code is below;


3500 for 5GB

I was tempted to still talk about globacom in this section but I realized it won't be fair for 9mobile because this post is based on etisalat bundle plans and not GLO data plans.
Though I don't have a lot to say about this, but I am assuring you that with 1k less than this amount, you will get 7GB from the largest data network in Nigeria (GLO).
The subscription code is written below;


8000 for 11.5GB

Some people might call it expensive, some might call it stealing, but as for me, I consider this cyber armed robbery. Why on earth will I pay this huge amount to get such little value? With this 8k, I can buy 2 full chickens, one 5 alive, and flex with the remaining, The 9mobile (etisalat) is expecting me  to give them all this money for one useless thing that I can use in just 2 days.
I cannot come and go and die because of etisalat. I have written the subscription code below.

Etisalat Nigeria data plans

Weekly Etisalat data bundles

₦150 for 200MB

This has a validity period of 7 days (one week). It is considered the best when you just need to check or upload something online because if you decide to use it for social networks such as Facebook, twitter, Instagram etc, I guess it wouldn't last you a day.

Are you new on this blog? Don't go just yet, I have some interesting posts which I think you might find useful and they are written below.
Do you remember back then when internet bundles were very expensive and only few people could afford the monthly plan? Fortunately, the problem has reduced today because of the high competition these data networks are facing from one another. Though, some of them still sell at a very high price and some sell for a lower price.
Do you know which network sells data at the cheapest price in Nigeria? Well, as for me, I think globacom is the number one data network provider in Nigeria because so far, their subscription plans are the best when it comes to offering heavy bundles at a cheap price.

Do you know that the Npower list of successful candidates for the 2017/2018 training and employment is out?
In this post, I will teach you how to check the Npower shortlisted names. You might just get lucky and find your name in it.

But before we go down to the Npower list/Npower shortlist, there are some information's which I think you might find useful.
Npower List of Successful Candidate

What is N-power?

 Some of us are still wondering what this N-power of a thing is, but fortunately, we were able to summarize everything you need to know about them and their goals in Nigeria.
The N-power program is a job creation and employment program introduced by the  National Social Investment program of the Federal Government of Nigeria to train and employ 500, 000 youths between the ages of 18 to 35.
So far, they are able to train and employ 200, 000 youths in public primary schools, agriculture development project centers and in primary healthcare centers in all the Local Government Areas in Nigeria.
This year (2017/2018), they are planning to shortlist  300,000 more volunteers to full-fill  their 500, 000 volunteers goal.
All of these N-power is doing is basically to reduce the rate of unemployment in Nigeria and I believe, it's is a very good strategy to tackle this problem.
The N-power itself is categorized into two parts which are;

  • Graduate Category
  • Non-Graduate Category

Graduate category:
This category deals with those who were opportune to graduate from a tertiary institution. They are also known as the N-power volunteer corps.
The N-power volunteer corps will have a 2 years contract with the federal government to serve in their various communities and their allowances will be sent to them by the federal government monthly.

How to Check the Npower List of Successful Candidates for 2017/2018 Recruitment

Let's go down to the real deal on how to check the Npower list of successful candidates.
Below, is a list of the procedures you have to follow to check the Npower list.

  • Firstly, visit the Npower portal login page
  • Insert your Phone number or e-mail address in the required form
  • Finally, click on the submit button below to check if you have been shortlisted for the 2 years program.
Very easy to check right? LOL.

Congratulations to all the successful candidates. I pray you have a good experience throughout the training and employment period.
Finally, there are some tips which I will like to share with you regarding this N-power of a thing.
Firstly, in-case your name was not shortlisted, please don't be sad. There are so many other opportunities out there which you can make good use of. Some of which are even better than this program.
As for the graduates who are still looking for jobs here and there, I will advice you to find a vocational work doing before God provides a good job for you. There is no shame in having a vocation. As long as you are comfortable with the money you are earning, no matter how small it is, it is worth doing.
Secondly, please don't pay money to anyone so that he/she could help you shortlist your name in the Npower shortlisted candidates list because they are all scammers. No matter how desperate you are finding a job.
After reading the above, I hope by now, you have learnt how to check the Npower list by yourself without any need to visit a cyber cafe.
