You transfer a file on your Android device and see that it’s a corrupted one. What will be your reaction? How will you feel? Really bad….correct?
But now you need not to worry as scary alien has developed an Android app exclusively for you. The app by the name Android File Verifier, shortly called as AFV helps you to determine if the files transferred on your smartphone are corrupted or not. Moreover, it doesn’t require any rooting of your device.
