As the title says, I am looking for an app that I can use to transfer files between my devices and the PC wirelessly. Any recommendations?

I'd use something like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive etc.

I use OneDrive for EXACTLY this - as it is supported on all platforms except Linux; I call One Drive my SAN (for "Swiss Army Knife") - and it's why I don't miss expandable storage on my phone. (Any Android app that supports cloud-based video OR audio playback - such as VLC - can play video hosted on OneDrive; Google Photos is the default for pictures on Pixels - which means I don't have to use OneDrive OR Google Drive for that - and I refuse to get stupid storing stuff in the cloud.

Guessing you just want this local - or do you not care if on the net..

 

Nextcloud, has apps for ios and android and pc (both windows and linux)

 

You can run it locally, via a VM (vmware,virtualbox,hyperv) or you can run it in a docker, or snap, etc. etc.

phone providers usually have something to transfer info between devices.  

 

from verizon: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-205664/

 

from att: https://www.att.com/features/mobile-transfer.html

I am sure you can look up your provider and content transfer in a google search (sample search term: verizon content transfer) I know the verizon app it will do it via your wifi network.  This is for a device to device transfer, but if you want to transfer to your computer, dropbox, onedrive, box, etc would be the best to use and it can sync across all devices.
