Sending files is a breeze. All you have to do to start sharing your files is click the Photos icon, and choose which files you want to send away to someone else. It doesn't matter if the recipient's device is running iOS or Android, because as long as they can scan the QR code or enter the key, they can receive your files. SuperBeam Lite for iOS uses Wi-Fi Direct, or whatever Wi-Fi connection is available, and it works amazingly quickly. The only drawback is that you have to upgrade to SuperBeam Pro to be able to share files with a computer. However, it's fast and easy and well worth the cost.
Receive files from anyone near you. If someone else wants to send files to you, that's easy, too. Just scan the QR code or type in the unique key, and the transfer starts immediately. Unfortunately, you can't receive files from a computer using SuperBeam Lite -- for that, you need SuperBeam Pro. Still, the app offers great functionality for free, and works very quickly to get your files transferred from Device A to Device B. We think that getting the Pro version is worth it if you have a lot of files to transfer between devices.
What is it about?
SuperBeam Lite is the pared-down version of its Pro kin. The app allows you to send files between devices using Wi-Fi Direct file transfer, but won't allow you to send or receive from PCs or Macs. If you've got large photos or videos you need to share, though, SuperBeam Lite makes the process quick and easy. Just make sure both devices are on the same Wi-Fi network, scan the QR code, and your file transfer will be done before you know it.

Why we love it
This is a simple app with a simple purpose: transferring photos and videos between devices. It does so quickly and easily, sending your data at speeds as fast as your Wi-Fi can handle. There are few bells or whistles in the Lite version, but the app does exactly what we need it to do.
