SHAREit - Transfer & Share review
SHAREit is an app that comes in handy when you need to quickly share large chunks of data with your friends or colleagues without sacrificing quality.
Interface and Design – 9/10
SHAREit follows a minimalistic approach to its layout. The only things you’ll see on your screen are the necessary UI elements as well as some practical pieces of functionality. The apps approach to white space leaves you enough room to focus on the content you have received or are willing to share, and the built-in media player follows a similar approach to a newsfeed, which is quite handy to large-screen devices that you operate with your thumb.
Key Functions – 10/10
This app is fast, and by that, we mean FAST! You’ll be uploading content with speeds up to 20M/s, which is 200 times faster than Bluetooth. Whoosh!
There is no limit to the content you can share with the app. Be it movies, GIFs, photos, or MP3’s – no format is too much. What’s even better is that the app downloads the content to your phone’s storage, meaning you’ll be able to view the files in offline mode, so your precious mobile data stays safe and sound.
SHAREit comes with a nice video player you can use to watch a couple of films on the go in glorious full HD.
The app also offers a feed of content most users are interested in, such as son playlists, memes, GIFs, etc.
Usability – 10/10
SHAREit is quite intuitive. You’ll get a good feel for the application after just a couple of minutes. The most prominent feature is the feed, where you can switch between several categories that include the content you follow of all of the fancy trending stuff. There are also sub-categories for content you can engage with after a slight swipe.
Sharing content with friends is simple – there are four large buttons on top of the feed that are used for sending, receiving, and categorizing content.
Cross-Platform Use – 7/10
While SHAREit shines when it comes to the app’s primary features, its accessibility leaves a lot to be desired. There are currently no versions of SHAREit available on platforms other than Google Android.
SHARit is an excellent app for the times when you need to share a large piece of content but don’t feel like waiting. The app’s additional features such as the player and access to a colossal pool of content, make it worthwhile in the meantime.
