DOWNLOAD SHAREit from 9Apps
Bluetooth is such a technology of yesteryear. Naming your device, then finding images, audio, videos etc. then looking for the target device and then finally being able to send the files (that too at slow speeds) isn’t much appreciated by many. People wanted a change, and they needed it quickly. That’s when Lenovo made use of their ability of developing a file sharing software/app which would soon become one of the best (and most used) file sharing apps in the history. Yes, it is Lenovo’s SHAREit.
About SHAREit for Android-
Lenovo launched SHAREit for android in China in 2012, and since then it has been released in more than 100 countries which include India, Russia, Indonesia, England etc. The app became an instant success because of the fact that it’s a lot faster (and more reliable) than Bluetooth or NFC. Before people knew the power of Wi-Fi Direct, they were quite satisfied with the speeds the aforementioned technologies provided. But now, whenever it comes to sharing files, SHARE it is the name that comes to most of the people’s minds.
