Hoccer is a data-sharing app, that allows you to share just about any file on your phone with other people. It doesn’t require registration or cloud storage, as all the transfers are done phone to phone. The caveat? It has to be to someone else running the Hoccer client. However, the recent updates to the app and online makes it worthy of download.
Hoccer Throw Data Android App allows you to “drag and drop” or “toss and catch” data like contacts, pictures, music, ringtones, web address bookmarks, Android apps, and text messages to friends and they catch them (assuming they have Hoccer install too). You can also throw other file types provided you have the third-party app OI File Manager installed. Catch a URL and it conveniently opens the link in the web browser, catch a picture and the gallery opens, catch music and your default media player streams the tune, catch a text message and read it, catch Android apps and link directly to the Android Market, catch a contact to view full details and make a call… Cool!
Hoccer recently added two awesome features that allow file sharing from Web to Phone (Webapp) and Phone to Web (Wall). Both require you to give access to your location in the browser. Imagine the possibilities, without the need to login; to upload a file from your computer and receive it to your phone, or to fling a picture from your phone to monitor and share photos of a trip on the big screen.
Tip: if you’re connected to the same Wi-Fi network, download speeds are significantly faster!

Hoccer offer a convenient way to transfer data… actually it’s a tech sexy way to share data. Great use cases, especially for Android phones, is the ease to share contacts.
The tutorial when you first open the app, and accessible via the menu later, walks you through the features, and even teaches you the toss and catch motions, so once you get to the point where you select a file, you’re all set to go.
Ease of Use:
Hoccer has made great improvements in the ease of use department since the last time we looked at this app. Before, it was nearly a hazard to sling your phone so fiercely, it almost created Wii accident scenarios. Now, it’s much cleaner to slide file from phone to phone, shake, or lightly toss files.
Dependent on whether you and friends both have the app installed and how often you need to share information.
The interface is very easy to learn. The main page, once you’re past the tutorial, lets you tap to add a file, and lets you select a file stored anywhere on your phone. The motions themselves are easy to do, and give file sharing a very unique twist.
