It’s the same thing every year: “I’m going to get organized.” “I’m going to finish that project I’ve been working on for years.” “I’m going to finally go after the career I’ve always wanted.”


Possibly second only to New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and get healthy, getting organized is a top contender on most people’s self-improvement lists. Thankfully, productivity apps are certainly plentiful, meaning there’s an option for everyone. What’s new in this app, though, is the fact that it streamlines the workload for just about anyone, making it a go-to choice for any type of work.

SHAREit, which combines a mobile app and desktop application, lets you instantly share files between your phone, your tablet, your laptop, or your desktop, without any pesky limits on file size or mind-numbing download speeds. There’s no need to pay a premium for cloud-storage just to get a video off your phone, or to move your photos to your external hard drive. Even better, the file transfer speeds reach up to 40 times that of Bluetooth transfer, letting you instantly swap your content from the phone where you recorded it to your computer for editing, sharing, or more permanent storage.

Thanks to its connectivity features, SHAREit doesn’t require any physical or internet connection to share files, instead relying on the features of the devices to “speak” to your other tech. That means you can transfer photos, videos, music, or documents even without an internet connection in range, and without having to use up your limited cellular data. SHAREit-enabled devices can also find each other in the same manner, letting you know which tech you can share with. Best of all, there’s complete cross-platform compatibility; you can share your photos from your iOS device to your Windows PC, to your mom’s Android tablet, and back again.

With the multi-user sharing capability, you can also share content with up to five devices at the same time, meaning work projects, group files, and other important content can be seamlessly shared with up to five people at once. This is a huge step for productivity apps, as there’s no need to wait for that group message with attachments to reach all of your collaborative participants. You can even share entire folders without having to extract each file and share them individually, meaning you can bring new team members into the loop without a lengthy process.

How capable is this app? It’s so good at sharing that even the app itself can be shared! Have a relative who wants the pictures from the last family reunion? Or a coworker who needs the product specs immediately? Just share the app instantly with the other person’s device, then share the content to their app. It’s that simple.
