On more than one occasion, you've probably wondered how to transfer files from your Android device to a PC, iOS, Mac, or another Android smartphone or tablet, in a fast manner and without having to resort to cables. If so, you should be interested in knowing about Xender, a tool that allows you to do so without cables and also without establishing an Internet connection, whether WiFi or data.
Is that possible? How does Xender work?
This file transfer tool for Android makes use of the connectivity capabilities of our smartphone or tablet to create its own short-range WiFi network. The receiver (an iPhone or iPad, Windows or Mac) only needs to have the application installed and be close to the phone so as to be detected on the newly created network.
You obviously won't be able to use it to send or receive files over large distances but it will help you to send anything to your own computer, share an application with a friend or transfer multimedia galleries full of photos.
A great solution for the transfer of large files.
These are the main features and functions of this application:
- Share all sorts of elements on your smartphone with other devices: songs, applications, documents, photos, videos...
- No need to connect to any data network.
- Transfers up to 200 times faster than Bluetooth.
- Compatible with different operating systems.
- Built-in playback of music and videos.
- No data limits within transfers.
Appealing functions way beyond the transfer speed
The key to the success of this application isn't all about the great speed with which it's capable of transferring files but also the functions it offers as a multiplatform software. Due to the current fragmentation regarding the use of Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS operating systems, this app encourages compatibility between them all. You only need the version corresponding to your platform and the devices themselves will take care of establishing a connection.
It also comes along with a very appealing function for Android users: if a friend of ours has an application that we really like, he'll be able to share it with us by simply sending us the APK installation file by means of Xender. No personal details or activity data will be disclosed other than the original game package.
