Best_Apps_for_Sharing_Files.jpgWe’re always looking for the next best thing when it comes to sharing files and information--after all, the grass is always greener on the other side. And what better way to do that than through apps?

The advent of applications has forever changed the way we do things on our smartphones, laptops, and, well, everything!

A recent article from TheNextWeb has listed 9 of the best apps for sharing files. They are:

  • AirDroid
  • Superbeam
  • Pushbullet
  • Portal
  • Xender
  • BitTorrent Sync
  • BitTorrent Shoot
  • WeTransfer
  • Infinit

We’ll be explaining 3 of these apps in further detail--and why we like them for business!

Superbeam - Pew Pew!

Superbeam is great because it doesn’t require an Internet connection, so if you’re on-the-go and there’s no Wi-Fi available, you’re set!

Files can be traded by using an on-screen QR code--just be mindful that iOS limits you to sharing just photos and videos on your iPhone or iPad, as mentioned in the article. Android has a much larger sharing scope.


As the article states, “Xender’s desktop interface is all business.” The tabs make it easy and effortless to jump from images, videos, music, documents, and even apps. It also makes it effortless to transfer multiple files using the handy ol’ “drag n drop” method.

A big plus--it’s a free app, and you can group up to 4 devices simultaneously.

BitTorrent Sync

Worried about securely transferring files from devices? Then this cross-platform app has got you covered! You’re able to keep your devices synced with this app--we’ll let this excerpt explain the rest:

“Sync uses Public Key Architecture to identify your devices and then transfers files using the BitTorrent protocol, with 128-bit encryption. The more devices a folder is shared with, the faster its files are transferred.”

Which of these 9 apps were your favorite? Do you use any of them in your business? Let us know in the comments below!
