In the early days of mobile phones, Xender wasn’t available and transferring and synchronizing of files between devices was one of the tedious things to do. I can still remember vividly, there was a time when only Infrared was available to transfer files between phones (Nokia to be precise), that went a long way before finally the introduction and support of Bluetooth for expensive phones which was even more advanced that I was able to synchronize my phone with my laptop using the Nokia PC suite and that went on that way, not until Android invention.
Conversely, Android is one of the greatest things that happened in the mobile gadgets world. Basically, Android is open-source and this enables wide support and feature for every user, and this played a great role in the file-sharing locally technology. Developers made it possible for Android users to share files using Hotspot connection and Wi-Fi which was no doubt faster than the previous methods and later it was later extended to support iOS.
What is Xender?
Do you know Flash Share? If yes, Xender was originally known as Flash Share but later there was a change of name (I really don’t know about that part).
Xender is a file transferring app that doesn’t have any file limit per day and it is FREE. With it you can send your heavy files to phone and PC within few seconds with the speed of up to 40MB/s, this depends on both device.
