Shareit from Lenovo Shareit Technologies is a file sharing app, and while it’s not the first and won’t be the last, this is one of the most popular owing to its reliability. Sending files over the web can be slow at times, and that’s not even taking into account the device incompatibility problems. With this app, sharing between different smartphones and desktop PCs is made easy.
With Shareit you can send files between PC, Mac, iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices over Wi-Fi, and even if you don’t have a Lenovo the app works just fine. Not only is Shareit fast, but it’s easy to use: you just open the app on your mobile device, click “send” and choose the file you want to send. If you’re transferring the file locally, a list of local devices running Shareit will appear. Choose where you want the file sent, click “send” and you’re done.
There’s also a Group Sharing mode which allows you to send files to multiple users, and the process is similar to the one above except you’re going to send the file to several users at once. Because the app is so fast, it’s easy to see how this can be used to share videos, photos, documents and other files.
Bottom line: whether you’re sending a 100 GB video or a 30k document, Shareit makes the process a cinch, and there haven’t been any compatibility issues reported so far. Finally, it’s much safer than USB devices, and since files are saved on your device, there’s no need to worry about your private files being exposed on cloud.
