File Sharing Apps

Sharing files is more common now than ever, for both business and pleasure. Make sure you have the right file sharing app for you.

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.
