How to Transfer Data Between Mobile and Computer Using WIFI

Transferring data between mobile devices, even with smartphones of different brands, is not a big deal when you have Bluetooth or SD card support. But if you want to transfer data between a laptop/desktop computer with mobile that doesn't have built in wireless features  it requires some physical intermediate devices to make it happen, such as SD cards, data cables, card readers etc.
Even though USB data cable's are the ideal medium to transfer data between mobile phone and computer or between any other devices, that provides fast and reliable data transmission, But carrying USB data cables everywhere just to transmit data is not fair and also what if data cables are unavailable at that time (or) if the device is some more distance away from the cable reach.
