Co-founded by Michael Qiu, SHAREit is a freeware which is used for fast, cross-platform file transfer. SHAREit was created by Lenovo Group Ltd and was first launched in China to compete with Xender. SHAREit is a part of a suite created by Lenovo known as DoIT apps. The other apps included in this suite are SNAPit Camera, SYNCit, WRITEit, REACHit, SECUREit, and SEEit Gallery. These applications are created for sharing data easily, syncing of data, providing advanced security and managing information across mobile phones and tablet devices.
SHAREit has now over 700 million downloads on Play Store, and its newest version as the time of writing the article for Android (4.6.78_ww) released on 30 January 2019, and its latest version for IOS (3.0.08) released on 30 January 2019.
SHAREit allows the sharing of files in an inter-network connection and allows its users to transfer all the data formats like photos, videos, apps, contacts, documents, and executable files without using the internet. The data transfer doesn’t need Bluetooth, phone network, or NFC and it works wirelessly. This app can be used on various OS like Android, IOS, Windows, Windows Phone and MacOS.
With the new update, SHAREit has improved the User Interface and overall user experience. The transmission compatibility of the app, sharing speed, in-app music player and video player has also improved with the latest version.
Like Xender and Superbeam, SHAREit also works on the WiFi Direct technology. Wi-Fi Direct is a Wi-Fi standard that enables devices to easily connect with each other without requiring a wireless access point. The app offers transferring speeds which are way faster than Bluetooth and even faster than NFC. SHAREit offers transfer speeds 200 times faster than Bluetooth.
