What are the pros and cons?
Without a doubt you can say it is the best and the fastest cross-platform sharing app. But there are some problems with it. And it may not always work as smoothly as it said to be. With the new versions packed with new features like video player and etc. users complain about it is been complicated rather than the previous versions that gave a simple interface just transfer files. But then again SHAREit crew is always there for you to give helpful advice and feedback.
SHAREit is multiplatform app. It is one of the coolest features of it but also causes problems because you have to troubleshoot connection problems on different devices. Since the app doesn’t use a connection over a Wi-Fi network or Bluetooth, it has to create a direct connection with another device. Simply what it does is the device creates a hotspot that other devices connect to. In the Settings menu there are options to “prefer hotspot” when sending or receiving, but the app never mentions that devices will create hotspots to share data.
And another problem is once files transfers are complete, the app disables the wireless connection and reverts back to the original connection. So if you want to share another file, you have to go through the steps of starting and connection to the hotspot again. Though it is sensible to close the hotspot it is annoying to do the same thing to setting up the connection over and over again.
Sometimes SHAREit creates incompatibilities between older versions and new versions. Lack of instructions make this even worse sometimes.
And if you are interested it is #45 in Productivity on App Store.
