SHAREit – Transfer & Share

ShareIt Review: There Are Files In The Air

File exchanging is one of those challenges our routine operations sometimes grow into. To copy some music to your phone or photos from your phone onto your PC, you have to connect the phone via a cable, to set up Wi-Fi connection with file manager plugins or even extract your memory card to connect it to your PC via USB reader (oh, the 2000’s!)

Lenovo ShareIt is a service made up to simplify this process. Now this app is promoted by Lenovo, though it’s not locked and you can use it, no matter what’s the manufacturer of your devices. The app has been made as versatile as it gets.

Functionality 9/10

The app or rather, the service, can transfer almost any kind of data. All it takes is having your devices connected to the same wireless network.

It’s worth noticing that received files are stored in ShareIt’s own directories sorted by type. If you need to have a certain file sent to your phone via ShareIt, you’ll need to find the directory named SHAREit in your phone’s root directory and then select the kind of content to choose the right inner directory. But if you need to access those files directly on your phone or tablet to open or share them, you can do it directly from within the app.

But there’s much more to this app. It can be used as a remote controller for presentations, with the possibility to switch the slides remotely. Intuitive gestures make it easy for you to control your presentation even if you use ShareIt for the first time.

Photo broadcasting feature is useful when you want to show some pictures to your audience but you don’t want these files leaked out. You just need to install ShareIt both on your computer and your phone, and then you can demonstrate your photos on your PC monitor without sending files.

There is also a built-in tool for backing up all the photos from your phone onto your PC. As if you didn’t have enough photo backup tools, but, look, this one is completely local. So if you don’t trust cloud storage services, this is what you need to unload your phone memory.
