Best Alternatives to Xender and ShareIt

Written by Hassan Abbas

Alternatives to Xender and ShareIt: People who used modern handheld devices know the pain of agonizing Bluetooth transfers. Some of us using close-range Infrared file transfer, the thrill of successfully pushing files over the unreliable medium.

But nowadays file transfers, have become a breezy walk in the park. But thanks to apps like Xendier and ShareIt. You can easily send a file to another user without breaking a sweat, and at breakneck speeds. To top it off, these apps are free to us. No need to spending your hard-earned money on something that you’d occasionally use.

In this article, however, we are not focusing on the two most famous file transfer apps. Here, we have five great alternatives, some of which even have their own “superpowers.”

Alternatives to Xender and ShareIt:

Send Anywhere

In our list, the first app is built for no non-sense, a simplified file sharing. Without compromising on features and quality, this free app enables you to exchange files securely.

The file size is set at 50GB. But you can share up to 1TB by opting for My Link. The app supports multiple-people file transfer, and you can also set an expiration date for your My Link shares.

Sweech may not have the scariest presence. But sometimes it knows a thing or two hitting the right notes. The app, which you can download for free off the Google Play Store, banks on its flexible file-sharing options to edge out the competition, and we can honestly see the appeal.

Sweech also uses Wi-Fi direct for file transfer (like other apps). But it doesn’t ask the recipient to have the app. It simply generates a link that can be opened on any browser to access the public files. It also has no file-limit restrictions and gives users to share only a portion of their inventory.

Not only this but Zapya also has:

ShareMe having 190M+ users worldwide is one of the popular file transfer apps in the business. The app was built for Xiaomi devices, of course, but the developers rolled it out no-Mi users as well.

The app provides a completely ad-free experience — without a premium. It doesn’t impose any file limit, gives you the ability to resume interrupted transfers, and sorts files for ease of use.

Files by Google

The last one on our list isn’t a dedicated file transfer app like the four apps preceding it. As it is a great file manager application having an added perk.

Files by Google takes to replace your native file manager. But if you are searching for an all-in-one application than this is a lightweight application. The app has a clean, easy-to-master Material Design UI, enables file exchange with only a couple of taps, and has no ads. Also, you can’t really go wrong with Google.
