If you need a way to transfer large files, videos, photos etc. from your Windows, Android or iOS device without using cables, Bluetooth or active WiFi networks you need SHAREit, a free app developed by Lenovo.
Using SHAREit, you can send big files (no limit on the file size to send) to other devices that also using the app 40x faster than using Bluetooth. And you don’t need to turn on your Bluetooth just to send and receive files.
SHAREit uses your device WiFi radio to transfer files and you can use this app to transfer big files within 50 meters, if you are using Android and Windows devices.
If you’re using IOS devices you cannot fully enjoy SHAREit because you still need a WiFi network to transfer files, also no SHAREit application available for Mac users.
