How does G­DM capture links automatically ?

Our app is designed to run in your background silently and smoothly without any interference to other processes. Whenever you visit a website or access a link via an app by selecting it, G­DM automatically monitors it and asks you what to do. This works not only while browsing the web, but if you find a link in whatsapp, all you have to do is highlight it just as if you are about to copy it, and GDM will open and ask you what to do with it.

Why isn’t it possible to download videos from YouTube ?

How can I access phone files with my computer ?

G DM makes this possible using the WiFi File Manager feature. You can select the hotspot icon present in the centre of the control­wheel, which opens a window that shows two things ­ a url link and a QR code. First you have to ensure that the computer and the phone is connected to same network, which can be a hotspot from your phone or a Wifi connection. If it is so, all you have to do is to type in the link into any browser of your computer and the file manager will open. You can view, edit, add or remove files in any permitted directory of your phone. NB: This method also works between two phones. Thus, you can control the files in one phone using another phone !

How does streaming files work ? How can I stream a file to others ?

When you download a file using G DM, you get a special way to share that data with friends ­ Streaming. Just like you watch youtube video while it is being loaded into the site, Your friends can watch the video as it is being shared between devices. Just click once on a downloaded file in G DM app and select the stream option. A QR code pops out. If your friends have GDM in their phones, they can use our inbuilt feature to easily access the file, otherwise any QR code reader will do, but then file will be downloaded and not streamed. As usual, make sure that your phone as well your friends are inside one network.

How many people can stream the same file simultaneously ?

This depends on your phone as well as the network. While streaming, your phone acts like a transmitter ­ a device which gives out the data and each device that gets the data is a receiver. It is the transmitter who has to perform the action of distributing or sharing the transmitted data between each receiver, and this takes some amount of processing power on your phone’s part. So, it depends upon your phone and its handling capacity.( Is explanation accurate ? Also how much should we recommend as a maximum ? )
