SHAREit is one of the most widely used offline file transfer apps with more than one billion downloads on the Play Store. However, the overwhelming number of ads being displayed while using the app and the faults that sometimes occur have pushed users to find SHAREit alternatives for the times their favorite app fails to work.

Here are some equally great applications you could give a try.

P.S. If you are looking for PC software to save your phone storage, here is also a recommended phone-to-phone transfer tool avaliable on PC.

#1 SHAREit Alternatives – SuperBeam

SuperBeam is a super fast and easy-to-use app that offers file sharing services so you can transfer data between devices using Wi-Fi Direct. To pair the two devices, you simply scan the provided QR code, and then everything goes on autopilot more or less. Or you could make use of the manual sharing key. Compared to SHAREit, SuperBeam requires fewer approvals and fewer taps to enable file sharing. No wonder it has been around for much longer than SHAREit, being the primary competitor of the popular app.

When it comes to handy extras, worth noting is the fact that SuperBeam allows its users to share files even with devices that have not installed the app. This can take place via the web interface. SuperBeam can also get UI with dark, light, and AMOLED color theme options. Nevertheless, you will need to switch to the premium (paid) version to enjoy some extras, such as sharing with PC and the removal of ads.

#2 SHAREit Alternatives – Google Files

Can a source be more trusted and secure than one coming straight out of Google itself? One of the tech giant’s more trusted and reliable apps is the Files application. You can install the app from the Google Play Store on both the source (the sender) and target (the receiver) devices, connect them, and start sharing the files in original quality.

The best part? You don’t even have to use Mobile Data. That aside, though, Files also offers backup and cleaning features, plus an extra function that enables you to migrate files offline faster. It bears many resemblances with Apple’s iDrop, as they both work as a file-sharing tool to send data between different devices. As for the Files user interface, it is clutter-free, secure, and user-friendly. Plus, it supports dark mode.

#3 SHAREit Alternatives – JioSwitch

This one comes from Indian developers, and does not require the Internet or Mobile Data to work. JioSwitch is a cross-platform application that supports Android to iOS file transfers. There is no limit on file types or file size while the app comes loaded with options to share music, apps, photos, videos, messages, call logs, and other types of data. As for its data transfer speed, it is 100x faster than Bluetooth. Without a doubt, the fact that it saves on your data package while you send files (it works without the Internet) is a huge plus.

Surprisingly, it is also one of the very few file transfer apps that does not bombard its users with ads. So, if you wish to switch files between Android and iOS devices, this is one of the most competent SHAREit alternatives.

#4 SHAREit Alternatives – Zapya

Zapya is a strong rival to SHAREit that has also been widely used to migrate files between devices (over 450 million users). It is one of the fastest cross-platform file sharing apps that enable data transfers from Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows XP/7/8/10, PC, Mac, and Tizen in a flash (200x faster than Bluetooth). The app is free to use and supports multiple languages. No need to use Mobile Data, Wi-Fi connection, or cables. There is also no file format or file size limits.

In addition, you may use Zapya to send files to a group of friends (can connect with up to 4 devices at the same time). Extra features include Peer CamControl, which allows you to take photos remotely using the camera of another connected device.

#5 SHAREit Alternatives – Send Anywhere (File Transfer)

Send Anywhere is yet another file-sharing application to transfer data from one device to another without changing the original. The process is pretty straightforward and fast. You simply receive a one-time 6-digit key so that the app can authenticate the data migration request. For this option, you will need to make use of Wi-Fi Direct to get over with the file transfer process faster. This means that you won’t have to use the Internet or Mobile Data.

Send Anywhere

Also, like Zapya, Send Anywhere allows you to send files to many people at once using a link. Now, you may choose between a free and paid version, with the latter being a good option if you don’t want to see any ads while using the app. Send Anywhere is available on all major platforms, including Amazon Kindle, macOS, Linux, Windows, iOS, and Android, supporting cross-platform sharing.

#6 SHAREit Alternatives – Share All

Yet another Indian file-transfer app similar to JioSwitch. Share All has been developed by a Delhi-based company that allows users with Android phones to send and receive pictures, apps, videos, movies, and other files without requiring the Internet. Share All is not tied to any restrictions or limitations whatsoever and also supports secure file sharing as all transfers are password protected.

Although the app is currently available for Android users exclusively, the developers are already working toward creating web and iOS versions, which are expected to be released shortly.

#7 SHAREit Alternatives – Xender

Xender is perhaps the most fearsome SHAREit competitor and one of the best SHAREit alternatives out there when it comes down to sharing music, documents, photos, and other types of files between a computer and a smartphone. Xender requires no cables to connect the two devices as all data is sent wirelessly.  

Xender

The even better news? Xender allows you to transfer files with up to four devices at the same time. If you own an iOS or Android device, you will need to install the app. Mac and Windows users, on the other hand, can use the web platform to get their job done fast and efficiently. Finally, there is no file size limit to hinder your data sharing efforts.

#8 SHAREit Alternatives – ShareDrop

Once you start using ShareDrop, you will feel as if you are using Apple’s AirDrop service. This is because the first is an HTML5 clone of the latter. ShareDrop gives you the chance to send data between devices without the need to upload them on a server first. The app uses Firebase and WebRTC technologies for presence management and secure peer-to-peer file sharing. The only downside is that the connected devices should be in the same local network so the file transfer can take place. On the other side, no configuration whatsoever is required.

ShareDrop

All you need is to simply open the web-based platform on all the devices so they can discover one another. This means that you need an Internet connection (which is the main difference with AirDrop) for ShareDrop to work. The app enables file sharing between Android and desktop devices, as well as between networks.

Final Thoughts

A simple Google search for SHAREit alternatives will provide you with a long list of apps that offer fast, easy, and secure file sharing between devices. Most of the applications on our list provide cross-platform data transfer services even without needing an Internet connection. If we had to pick one, though, we would probably choose Google’s Files for its all-around approach.
