Android/iOS/Web: When you need to transfer a file from your PC to your mobile or vice versa, you could turn to Pushbullet. But for a faster, no-signup and secure method, Send Anywhere is a worthy alternative.
The big sell of Send Anywhere is that it uses P2P to transfer your files, without saving them on any server along the way — so once the transfer is done, the file isn’t going to be sitting on the cloud, waiting to be discovered by someone else. Each file transfer is activated for a short time, during which you can share its QR code or unique 6-digit key with someone else using either the Send Anywhere mobile app or the website. Any user can access this file as long as they have the QR code or the unique key — there is no need to sign up for the app. You can read more about the security of the service in the FAQ.
If security isn’t what you want, you can also upload files to a server and share them with multiple people. You can add a deadline after which that file is auto-deleted from the server.
On Android, you can share numerous file types, including photos, music, videos, documents, APKs and contacts, but the options are limited to photos, videos and contacts on iOS. On PC, anything goes. Send Anywhere claims not to have a file limit and so we tested it with a 1.5GB file — the transfer was smooth, no issues.
While you would still use PushBullet for many daily scenarios, Send Anywhere is a good alternative when you want some privacy or if you are trying to send a file from a mobile device to a PC that does not have PushBullet installed — the direct Web transfer is very convenient.
