Top 5 File Sharing Apps

Top 5 File Sharing Apps for 2016: Best Solutions for Small Businesses

Still emailing photos between your phone and computer? Tracking down lost USB drives for file transfers? Or worse, relying on a cloud storage device for your business documents that lacks sufficient encryption security? Put an end to the file sharing madness with fast, secure instant file sharing across devices and operating systems. Mobile devices are great for sharing files, provided of course that you have the right tools.

These are five of the best file sharing apps for 2016:

Problem: Need unlimited, fast and secure file sharing

Solution: Infinit

As the name suggests, Infinit is an intuitive, one-click solution that makes it easy to send files up to 30 times faster than existing solutions. That’s all thanks to Infinit’s point-to-point technology and bank-level encryption algorithms for maximum file sharing security. According to Infinit, the one-click solution lets users send anything in four seconds via a desktop or mobile device. Infinit is free for up to 10 GB transfer size limit and 1 GB of storage. Invite two friends and upgrade to the “Plus” version that offers 50 GB size limit and 3 GB of storage. A team option with unlimited transfer sizes, a custom domain, password protected links and team branding is offered for $12/mo per user.

Problem: Need to share large files without using mobile data

Solution: SHAREit

Whether you’re sharing from phone to phone, PC to phone, phone to PC or PC to tablet, SHAREit powers near-instant transfers of music, video, photos and documents between your computers, smartphones, and tablets- all without any size restrictions. The SHAREit app works up to 200 times faster than Bluetooth. For phone to phone, simply select the content you want to share, select the receiver (like a co-worker’s phone or your own computer) and hit send. You’ll be instantly connected to send data back and forth.

Problem: Need fast file synching without cloud security vulnerabilities

Solution: BitTorrent Sync

BitTorrent Sync provides fast, intelligent file syncing and transfers while bypassing cloud security vulnerabilities. Sync finds the fastest, shortest transfer route between two devices while skipping the cloud. This means there’s no uploading to third parties, which reduces the risk of security vulnerabilities. Have a big file? Sync can handle it. Sync is able to share folders that contain gigabytes and even terabytes of data. Sync works between multiple platforms and devices, including operating systems (OS X, Windows, Linux, NAS devices) and iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices. Sync shares files without the Internet sends large files fast and empowers better teamwork solutions around shared assets.

Problem: Need file sharing without an Internet connection

Solution: SuperBeam

No Internet connection? No problem. Supercharge your file transfers across Android products. SuperBeam uses Wi-Fi direct technology (or whatever Wi-Fi connection is available) to transmit your data at high speeds. Pair devices using a QR code, NFC (near field communication) or simply entering a sharing key for devices with no camera or NFC capabilities. SuperBeam reports transfer speeds are usually between 20 to 40 Mbps, although some users with high-end devices have been able to reach transfer speeds as high as 75 Mbps. Share documents, contacts, images, music, apps and entire folders.

Problem: Need faster solution for sharing between laptop and smartphone

Solution: Pushbullet

If you frequently share photos, screenshots, and notes between your computer and smartphone, Pushbullet is for you. The app connects all your devices so they feel like one device, using a chat-like interface. For your desktop, Pushbullet offers a browser extension that lets you send links, files and text to multiple devices at once. When you’re away from the computer, the mobile app lets you quickly share messages and files with friends who are using the service. Pushbullet works just like a chat app for the file sharing between your phone, your desktop and other friends using the app. One downside is that Pushbullet restricts file transfer to a single file at a time. Want to share an entire mixtape’s worth of audio tracks? You’ll need to upgrade to another Pushbullet app. Pushbullet works with Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Windows, Opera, Android and iOS.

Bottom line:

Stop relying on cables, USBs, email or text messages to move files, photos, music, apps and more between your computer and smartphone. With the right file sharing app, you’ll be able to securely and (almost) instantly send needed business information.
