Sharing Files on iOS Has Never Been This Easy

Having a hard time transferring files? Emailing photos, transferring to USB drives, and relying on a cloud storage device for your business that lacks encryption security is a thing of the past with amazing file sharing apps, and these are the best.

Droplr

Get Droppin'

Droplr

Droplr

For anyone who wants to quickly upload and share their files.

Droplr is a fantastic service that lets users upload images, video, and other file types into the Droplr cloud. Once the file is uploaded, you instantly get a link to the file that you just uploaded into your Droplr account, and you have the option for a short or longer, private link. Users have plenty of storage for all of their files, and the Mac and Windows app is free and easy to install. Every file you upload, even from your computer, will be accessible from the iOS app. Droplr also has subscription plans that start off rather cheap and is well worth the price.

Why we love it

We love Droplr because it is super fast and easy to set up and start uploading files immediately. The service has been solid, and the option for short or private links is excellent.

SHAREit - Connect & Transfer

Share large files without using mobile data

SHAREit - Connect & Transfer

Easy to send and receive files

For folks who want an easy way to share music, photos, and other files

SHAREit is a pretty simple app to you. You just tap on Send or Receive, and choose your files or the person you're receiving from. If you want to receive files from a computer, the app supports a Web share portal that gives you an IP address to go to from the Mac or PC. Windows users can install a SHAREit application on their computers, but there's no client for Macs as of this writing. The app doesn't impose any size restrictions, and it works remarkably fast. The downside? You have to be on the same Wi-Fi network.

Why we love it

SHAREit has a simple, clean interface and does what it does well and quickly. You don't have to stand around waiting for hours for a file to transfer. The only drawback is that it's really only good for transferring files to people you're with, since you have to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Pushbullet

With Pushbullet, you can easily send files to and from your iPhone, fast.

Pushbullet

Send files or links from your iOS devices

For people who want an easier way to share their files between devices.

With Pushbullet installed on your iOS devices, it's easier than ever to transfer files, links, or whatever from one to the other, or even to your PC or Mac. It's seamless to use on the iPhone or iPad, and fairly easy to use on a Mac or PC. There's a Windows app to enable Pushbullet on your PC, and browser extensions (even for Safari) for use on a Mac. Pushbullet connects all your devices together, so it's almost like you're just using a single smartphone, and it uses an easy-to-understand chat-like interface. You can even use Pushbullet to send files and links to friends who also have the app. The only downside is that you can only send one file at a time, and you're limited to 25MB or less unless you upgrade to Pushbullet Pro.

Why we love it

Pushbullet has a unique approach to file and link sharing, turning the experience into a chat window. It's a great app for sending smaller files like documents and photographs, as well as for sending texts along with those files for explanation. The ability to share files and links with friends is a nice touch, too.

BitTorrent Sync

BitTorrent's answer to keeping your photos and other files synchronized

BitTorrent Sync

Create as many folders as you want

For people who want a file sync app that avoids the cloud

You don't have to worry about uploading to third parties with BitTorrent Sync, so there's less risk of security vulnerabilities. The app simply finds the shortest path between your devices, even using your LAN if both devices are on the same network. There are no file size limits, but BitTorrent Sync can be a bit cumbersome to use between your devices and your computer if you don't want to pay for a Sync Pro subscription.

Why we love it

BitTorrent Sync is a great way to keep your files transferred between your devices. It works smoothly and quickly, and even runs in the background. It's compatible with a wide range of platforms, including iOS, Android, OS X, Windows, and Linux. It even works with NAS devices, which is a nice plus.

If you send files to yourself, you'll get a link to help you install the Infinit client app on your Mac, Windows PC, or Linux computer. You can also send files to other people, even if they don't have Infinit, but it definitely works better if they have the app. Once you give Infinit access to your contacts, people who already have the app will show up at the top. Sending and receiving files is quick and easy, and it's protected by bank-level encryption. There's even an iOS Share extension for sending files from other apps.

Why we love it

The beauty if Infinit lies in its simplicity. There aren't a lot of bells and whistles, just a clean, simple interface with easy-to-comprehend buttons to send and receive files. File transfers are blazingly fast, and the app can even transfer files to people who don't have Infinit installed on their devices.
