Today, transferring files from one device to another have become extremely fast and easy. Thanks to File sharing mobile apps, we can easily transfer and share the files and data we need in just a few quick taps. SHAREit is an excellent sharing app that allows you to quickly and safely transfer files from one device to another. The app is not just limited to a mobile-to-mobile transfer as it comes with an excellent cross-platform feature that allows you to move files from a PC to mobile and vice versa. It is also capable of transferring files between two different mobile OS whether it’s an iPhone to Android or vice versa. To top it all, the app comes with a great number of additional features including its built-in media player, streaming services, and more.
How SHAREit works?
It is interesting to note that SHAREit can handle most of your file-sharing needs. To get started, simply download the SHAREit app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. To make the transfer work, both devices must have the same application (you can only share the files on another SHAREit user). You can also download the PC version of the app for cross-platform transfer. Using the SHAREit app is not complicated at all. It doesn’t require rooting and it doesn’t even need a network connection to share files. Interestingly, this app works as a peer-to-peer exchange and connects devices through Wi-fi radio to send and receive files.
The app will prompt you to the home screen showcasing various content like trending videos, comedy, entertainment, and more. Located above are buttons allowing you to Send, Recieve, Local, and Invite. Below is a navigation panel giving you quick access to Home, Download, Games, and Me. To share or send files to another mobile device using SHAREit, simply tap the Send icon on the upper left corner of the app. The Receiver device, on the other hand, should tap the Recieve icon. This process should be done simultaneously. On the sender’s screen, the app will ask permission to access BlueTooth. Tap “Allow” and it will now ask you to select files you want to send. Files are sorted into different categories such as Files, Videos, Apps, Photos, and Music. Once done, tap Next and it will prompt you to a radar-like screen where the app will try to locate the receiver’s device.
You can also use the Scan feature to simply scan the QR code generated by the receiver’s device. To receive files from the sender, just tap the Receive button above the screen. You will go through a Receiver Preparations page prompting you to Open GPS and BlueTooth. Tap Next and this will take you to the same radar page of the Sender. It will also display a QR Code allowing the sender to scan it. Once the sender detected the receiver’s device, it will ask the sender to scan the code and the files will be sent automatically. To transfer files from mobile to PC, just open the app on your device and open the same application for the PC. Tap the Window icon on the SHAREit app (located on the upper right corner of the screen). Select Connect PC and it will prompt you back to the radar screen.
