Instashare Air Drop - Transfer files the easy way
By Lukas Foldyna
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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. Apps are available for iOS, OS X, Windows, and Android.
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 PC or Mac to your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or even from an Android 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.
DOWNLOAD MOBILE APPS FOR FREE!
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.

What's New in Version 2.3.0
We have greatly improved photo sharing:
— Full support for iCloud Photos
— You can send Live Photo as a video or an image
— Photos are saved with the original file name
— Works much faster with a large number of photos
3D touch Peek and Pop previews
We’ve also added full support for 3D touch, so you can just force touch a file to send it on iPhone 6S.
And other bug fixes
Does NOT add to Photos Gallery
App looks nice, but has huge issues. First off, it flat out does NOT add the photos to the photo gallery app. You can transfer the photos, but you would need to save each photo one at a time to add them to the gallery. Secondly, when selecting a device to transfer to, the first time you select it, the transfer will always fail. You need to select it again for it to start.
OK but beware: Bluetooth doesn't work and other issues
I've been able to transfer a file while connected to wifi, but can't do so on Bluetooth. In fact, the instructions don't make sense! And the instructions for creating a wifi hot spot don't make sense either! This would be a great app if it worked as advertised, but it mostly doesn't.
Just hate that you can't set up more than one file for transfer as a time, otherwise this would definitely be five stars.
