NOTE - Does not use a web service to handle transmissions
This is a fairly good app, I like the interface, its quite functional. However, its not a Web Service, where you have an account and can get it sent wherever you are, like DeskConnect. Why does it matter, well because in the real world, you’re not always going to be on the same wifi network every time. Neither is bluetooth a convenience every time. You want a best in class app that sends content between your devices, a web service assisting the process is by far more reliable and quicker to use instead of trying to get on the same network, and working with bluetooth. These connection methods do not make your trusted devices appear easily in the installed apps. Another point, some networks for example, corporate ones, its nearly impossible to get a service like this to work. Overall, I was not disappointed by the app but disappointed that I have to return to using DeskConnect (which is ugly and combersome experience, but works flawlessly in functionality).
Seems to work just fine...
Despite the few negative reviews, I took a chance on this app and it’s iOS verisons to share between all of my Apple goodies. I’ve had no issues — shared PDFs and photos to and from all devices - never failed; worked like a charm. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because the sharing does not work in the background. If the iDevices go to sleep or close out the Instashare app, it doesn’t work. Get this work at any time, as long as the devices are powered up, and it’s a full five stars.
It just works!
There’s not much to say except this has been the fastest most reliable photo and file transfer app I’ve owned. It’s confoundingly simple. I have it on my Macbook and iPhone. I open the app on my phone and Mac, select a bunch of photos on my phone and drag them as a group to the Macbook icon in the phone app and lo and behold within seconds they’re on my Macbook. Period. Done. Next thing on the list...
