The SHAREit - Connect and Transfer Android app lets you transfer files to and receive files from one or more devices across the most popular platforms.

Sharing a file from one mobile device to another shouldn’t be a hassle, and that’s the challenge SHAREit - Connect and Transfer sets out to overcome. It shares files directly between devices, and the method realizes speeds 200 times faster than Bluetooth and far faster than Wi-Fi and Internet. This particular version is designed for Android devices, but SHAREit is also available for Windows and Apple machines, which means you can share between iPhones, PC desktops and more.

The app lets you transfer one or multiple files to one or multiple devices. Creating groups, such as a cluster of friends or coworkers, lets you send files to many people with just a tap or two. You can send photos, music, videos, contacts and just about any type of file.

Although SHAREit - Connect and Transfer offers alternatives, the primary means by which it transfers files is wireless. You don’t need an Internet connection, a local Wi-Fi network or even a USB cable. You also don’t have to worry about data usage because this mode doesn’t use any. In addition, received copies are exact duplicates of sent files, and there’s never degradation or corruption.

The only issue with SHAREit, and this is a minor niggle, is that all users need it. If you want to send a friend a file for the first time, he or she will need to download the app first. It’s certainly not a big problem but can be a hassle when you want to transfer a file fast.
