Share Large Files Using Any Device With Send Anywhere
Send Anywhere is a web service for sharing large files across various devices via the internet. Whether you are using a mobile device like Android or iPhone or need to quickly transfer files between your Windows or Mac computer, Send Anywhere can be used to get the job done. Unlike common file sharing services, Send Anywhere is good enough to share large files, without any type of restriction on the kind of file that you share. This means that by using Send Anywhere you can share anything from your PowerPoint presentation, Excel sheets, contact cards, to anything as big as audio or video files.
Send or Receive Files Using Send Anywhere Website or Mobile App
You can use either an Android or iOS app or head over to the Send Anywhere website for sharing a file. Either way you will be presented with two options, i.e. Send or Receive. If you wish to send a file, click Choose File from the Send section, select a file and click Send File. For a demonstration, we will share a file using a Windows 7 computer and receive it on an Android device.
Receive File Using Key or QR Code
Once a file has been selected the user is given a Key. This key should be entered on the device on which you wish to receive the file. You can either enter this key by going to the Send Anywhere website or a mobile app. You can also use the QR code to receive the file. As Send Anywhere is a peer-to-peer (P2P) service, the user is given 10 minutes to start receiving the file. While this might seem like a drawback, it however does speed up the file sharing process because the file is shared using p2p file sharing.
As soon as the code is entered via the Send Anywhere website or from a mobile app, the file transfer is initiated. Similarly, you can use a mobile app or the Send Anywhere website to share large files between various devices.
Send Anywhere is a free service for sharing files as large as 30 MB in size (for each file transfer). For large files you will have to purchase the Pro mobile app. The Pro app for Android costs $2.88, whereas the Pro app for iOS devices costs $2.99 and works with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
