Instashare Air Drop - Transfer files the easy way
By Lukas Foldyna
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
ransfer files the easy way, just drag & drop the file and we will handle the rest. Like Apple AirDrop, but works and on all major platforms and computers that don't support AirDrop.
With millions of downloads in the App Store, thousands of happy users and millions of photo and file transfers, this app is a necessary tool for your iOS device.
SIMPLE FILE SHARING
You don't need to be tech-savvy to share files, photos or videos.
AIRDROP SUPPORT FOR OLDER DEVICES
It adds Airdrop-like transfer capability to older devices without official support for Airdrop, like your older Mac or iOS devices with iOS 6.
SIMPLE TO USE
No need to pair devices or set up a transfer to send files or photos. Designed for quick and easy sharing of files, photos, and videos from your other device, photos and videos are automatically saved to the 'Camera roll' album.
Just open the app and start sharing files, holiday photos, or family videos – no need to enter emails or passwords.
NO FILE TYPE LIMITS
You can transfer any file type, no restrictions. MP3s, images, PDFs, presentations, and way more.
PHOTOS AND VIDEOS
Instashare preserves photo metadata in all transfer directions (EXIF information, location, etc). Transfer in full resolution.
WORKS WITHOUT INTERNET
You don't need to be connected to the internet, just use a local wi-fi or Bluetooth (iOS and OS X only) to transfer files.
You can use Instashare with various apps thanks to the system built-in extension – share pictures from Photo library, links from Safari, and other files straight from 3rd party apps.
Stop retyping long URLs and so on. Just copy and transfer it in a few seconds.
Drag a clipboard item & drop it on the device – it will be automatically copied to clipboard on the device.
Files and photos are sent only between your devices, without making a copy somewhere in the Cloud. They never leave your local wi-fi network, keeping your files and photos safe.
IOS DEVICE WAKEUP
No need to manually open the mobile app to transfer a file or clipboard to device – just wait a few seconds for the device to appear.

Versions for other platforms available at instashareapp.com
To transfer files and photos between two devices, both of them need to have this app installed. Mobile apps are free, desktop apps are paid.
Access to a properly configured wi-fi network (or bluetooth between iOS and OS X) is required for this app to work. Some public or private wi-fi networks may be configured to block communication between devices, preventing the transfer connection to be established.
You don't need to use the latest device or OS available, works with older systems as well, from iOS 6, iPad 2 or iPhone 4.

Best air drop replacement.
I've used both We Transfer and Zapya and instead hare hands down is the better of the three apps. I needed something to air drop from my PC as seamlessly as my iPhone and MacBook do. Instashare I feel does even better than air drop does. Very easy interface to use. I did purchase the app as that may be the only downside but for the price of $6 (the desktop app and iPhone no add app) I am able to easily increase my productivity and workflow as a photographer and editor. Give instashare a try!
Apple to Droid worked
The app was able to transfer photos from Apple to Droid. The transfer was slow which leads me to believe it was wifi transfer verses Bluetooth. Also both phones must stay awake during transfer so you have to sit and monitor and not let the screen go to sleep. I'm still looking for the Bluetooth transfer option that doesn't require monitoring.
Doesn't work iPhoneSE Late2011MBP
I tweeted Instashare about how my devices are not communicating for transfer and still did not receive a response for days later.
I purchased this app to help me upload a video and it didn't work.
Sometimes when I hover the clipboard txt to send from my phone, it pops up only in my computer's Bluetooth menu. When I attempt to drop to my phone from the computer, Instashare app says it needs port 1234 open.
