Can I use Feem without an Internet connection?

Feem doesn't use the Internet to transfer files. All file transfers are done over your local Wi-Fi network. In fact, you don't even need a server !
This makes file transfers over Feem faster than using the Internet. Feem is the perfect local sharing utility for schools, homes, offices, and any other institution with an internal Wi-Fi network.
No Wi-Fi, No Problem. Create a portable wifi hotspot on your device, and share your connection with other devices.

My devices do not detect each other !

The number one reason Feem doesn't detect other devices is because the devices are not in the same local/Wi-Fi network.
Follow the checklist below:
Have you installed Feem on all your devices? You need at least two devices running Feem in your local network.
Have you checked that all your Feem devices are on the same Wi-Fi network ?.
Have you checked your Firewall settings for Feem ? If your firewall is on, ensure that Feem is allowed by your firewall. For Windows 7 users, ensure that Feem is allowed in your firewall settings in both Public and Home networks.
Have you clicked on the ("Reload Peers") button in Feem?
Can you make sure that your router/firewall doesn't block UDP broadcasts from Feem? If it does, you'll need to ensure your router/firewall allows traffic from UDP port 45000.
Can you make sure that your router/firewall doesn't block TCP traffic from Feem ? If it does, you'll need to ensure your router/firewall allows traffic from TCP port 25001.

My file transfers are too slow !

If your Feem displays speeds below 500 KB/sec, your file transfers are too slow. Follow the checklist below:
Your device might be equiped with a weak Wi-Fi antenna. This is especially true for android phones. The farther away your device is from the router, the weaker the Wi-Fi signal on your device. Put your devices as close as possible to your Wi-Fi router for faster file transfer speeds.
Also, you might be using Feem to transfer files to multiple devices simultaneously, which might slow down individual file transfer speeds.
Finally, note that the heavier the files you wish to transfer, the longer your file transfers will take.

E' garantita la privacy dei miei files?

Yes. To a very great extend.
File transfers over Feem are directly between devices. Your files are not transmitted over the Internet. This means your ISP cannot spy on your file transfers.
File transfers over Feem are not stored on any server. This means we cannot access your files.
File transfers over Feem are "PUSH", and not "PULL". This means no one can access your files using Feem unless you explicitly send those files.
If you buy the business license of Feem, you'll get a more robust version of Feem with extra privacy and security options.

Is Feem just like Dropbox?

No. Feem is not like Dropbox. For your local sharing needs, Feem is way more convenient than Dropbox.
Feem gives you local chat. Local chat is a great way for you and your team members to request files to transfer. Dropbox doesn't offer local chat.
Sending files to the RIGHT people is far easier with Feem. With Dropbox, you'll have to manage complicated Access Control Lists.
Dropbox limits you in the capacity of files you can share. With Feem, you can transfer as many files as you want, as many times as you wish.
Dropbox uses the Internet to transfer files. Unfortunately, this makes file transfers using Dropbox many times slower than Feem transfers over the local network.
Feem does folder transfers without syncing. Dropbox syncs. Unfortunately, syncing is dangerous. With sync, it is possible to mistakenly delete your important files !

Why won't Feem install on my Mac?

If you are running an older version of Mac OSX, note that Feem won't work. You should be running at least Mac OS 10.7
If you see a message about Feem not being a valid app from the Mac AppStore, then your Gatekeeper settings on your Mac are preventing you from installing Feem. You could try the following approach:
In Finder, Control-click or right click the icon of the Feem Installer app.
Select Open from the top of contextual menu that appears.
Click Open in the dialog box. If prompted, enter an administrator name and password.
