Free file sharing platform

SHAREit is a free file-sharing application that works online and offline to share files between devices. The cross-platform app is available for Android, iOS, Mac, and Microsoft Windows PC operating systems. The software includes gaming and streaming services in the user interface.

AirDroid, Xender, and Zapya are alternative applications to SHAREit that enable you to transfer files between devices. All the apps allow you to send files like music, pictures, video, and more. While AirDroid is specifically made to work with Android devices, you can get the program for Mac systems, like SHAREit.

Is SHAREit an app?

SHAREit is a comprehensive application that works on computers, laptops, mobile phones, and tablet devices. SHAREit enables you to share multimedia content, like applications, games, and more. You do not need a WiFi or Bluetooth connection because SHAREit allows you to transfer media files online and offline.

SHAREit does not use your data resources in the process of transferring files from one device to another. The application is relatively lightweight and does not use much storage space on your phone. The fast file transfer speed is another great benefit of the app.

While it is well known for file sharing, the software includes additional services. The freeware has a built-in multimedia player to allow you to play audio and video content directly in the user interface. A large portion of the SHAREit user base are gamers because the game center has an extensive catalog of games to download and play.

Is SHAREit safe?

SHAREit has a cleaning service that may cause issues because important information has the potential to get accidentally deleted by the freeware. The cleaning service claims to make your device speed faster.

A potential risk is almost always associated to technology that accesses your personal information, like files. The cleaning service that is offered takes the reviewal of your private data even further because the software screens all the available areas of your system. However, it is important to note that SHAREit has been detected as malware by certain programs.

Is SHAREit app free?

SHAREit is free to download and install on all operating systems. The games that are in the in-app game center are also free to play. Installations are not required for you to launch the games. Additionally, HTML5 games and gaming videos are available in the gaming center.

SHAREit offers free downloads for hot games. The gaming hub allows gamers to share games with each other, and as a result, it has connected other gamers together. SHAREit lets you stream videos with the native streaming service. A file manager is also available to organize your media.

The file manager is a convenient addition because you can organize your contents allowing you to select the items that you prefer to send between devices. SHAREit has both a video and music player that gives you quick access to your media. You can also stream HD videos on the video player.

Since the app offers a large array of services, the user interface is loaded with content. The user experience for the app is not of the highest caliber because the appearance of the user interface is chaotic

A QR code is needed to connect two devices together to share multimedia content, which is a newer concept that might be confusing. The Mac application shows you the connected devices, once the QR code has been scanned. While the connection process between the desktop and mobile systems might require a learning curve, the transfer process is much simpler. SHAREit implements a user-friendly drag and drop system to send files between devices.

A multifaceted file sharing app

SHAREit is a dynamic file-sharing application with a built-in file manager. A streaming service for videos and a gaming center for games are available in the user interface. The cleaner function lets you declutter your device of excess content that takes up battery life and storage space. Risks arise as to whether the app is trustworthy since SHAREit has access to the entirety of your media content when you accept the cleaning function.

What’s new?

The developers make sure that SHAREit stays relevant with consistent software updates that enhance the user experience. While the appearance of the interface does not change from the new releases, the updates do resolve software issues. SHAREit is available in 45 languages to support an international user base.
