So, here are some of the ways of wireless file transfer:
Software Data Cable
This is a free app which lets us transfer data using Wi-Fi. This is a great utility for folks who transfer lots of files and don’t like USB cables.

This is a great way to make files available on your multiple devices. While all your Dropbox files can be available on your device, a sometimes overlooked feature is the ability to designate a file as a "favourite" on your device, which causes it to be kept locally and available offline.Syncing your files between all of your computers, smartphones, and tablets is what it is all about. All you have to do is install the Dropbox desktop application and sign in using the same login. It will watch your Dropbox folder and automatically make sure your files are the same no matter where you get them.

ES File Explorer

WiFi File Explorer
This uses your Android device's Wi-Fi connection to join your wireless network, then creates a little Web server on your network that lets you browse your files from any other computer on the network. So you just go to your PC, type the IP address and port number the app gives you and then you'll see a list of your phone's files and folders in your browser window.The app includes a password protection option, which should probably be enabled by default, but mostly isn't.

This app helps you to upload, download and share files over the Internet. You can totally forget USB data cable and freely send and receive any files between mobile devices and computers. iShare is a cross-platform file sharing app. It supports all kinds of platforms to upload, share and download files.
