Top 5 File Sharing Apps For Your Smartphone

In today’s world, as collaboration becomes more and more reliant on the digital world, file-sharing has become one of the most important aspects of business success.

Years back, sharing files was one of the most challenging tasks. Smartphones weren’t a thing, which means our trusted mobile apps didn’t factor in. We used things like floppy disks to store files and physically shared those disks with others.

Today, things are so much easier as various apps created by app developers make it easy to transfer files from one digital place to another…very quickly. In this article, we’ll cover the top 5 apps that make file sharing easy.

The following apps can help you and your team become far more efficient when it comes to sharing files, help you avoid things like duplicate files, and allow you to share seamlessly to ensure business doesn’t stop because of lost files, version control, or any other issue.

To help your team become more efficient and share files more easily, here are our top 5 file sharing app recommendations.

  1. ShareIt
  2. Files by Google
  3. Xender
  4. DropBox
  5. Zapya

1. ShareIt

This is by far one of the most popular app people use for file sharing. I highly suggest you consider having it on your smartphone. It was one of the first apps to arrive on the market, and it has grabbed a significant market share. The app uses your Wifi connection, which makes transferable speed incredible for the sharing of files.

One of the best features of the app is that you do not require data for sharing files. It is available free to download from the Play Store…if you don’t mind dropping a new app on your device.

2. Files by Google

Obviously, this app was designed by Google, which lends immediate credibility. The app provides seamless transfer of content from one device to another, but it does come with one condition. Both parties must have the app for it to work. It doesn’t need an internet connection to transfer files, as it can set up a secure Wifi connection for file transfer.

If you don’t trust third-party apps, you should try this one. The credibility of Google is built in.

This app has one more feature that I like. It looks for content within your device quickly and efficiently. You can manage device storage by moving one piece of content to SD and vice-versa.

3. Xender

If you are looking for an app that shares music, photo, videos, and much more with ease, then this is the app for you. It shares your files with almost 250 times the speed of some other apps. It’s also available in many different languages.

4. DropBox

Dropbox has over 500 million downloads in the Play Store. It is popular in the field of Cloud-storage services. It has been around for quite some time and has survived the launch of Google Drive, iCloud, and a variety of other cloud storage offerings.

The app comes with the ability to share files via links, which is really useful on many occasions. But it only allows you to store up to 2GB of data for free. After reaching 2GB, you have to buy the subscription.

It also has the feature of a doc scanner on board, which allows your documents to convert into pdf. It’s one benefit that it is free to download and has no ads related to it.

5. Zapya

Zapya is similar to the apps discussed above. It also allows for file sharing with the use of your Wifi connection, which makes sharing super fast. Another beneficial feature is that you can add up to 4 devices simultaneously to send multiple files to more than one device at the same time.

It also has over 500 million downloads all over the world, so you can get an idea of this app’s popularity.
