Filedrop Wireless File Sharing: Dropbox Lite

by Lambert Varias

A couple of months ago we found out about Instashare, an app that lets you transfer files from an iOS device to an OS X computer and vice versa. Filedrop is a lot like Instashare, but it has a couple of significant features that make it seem like the better of the two. The best part? Filedrop is also free.

Like Instashare, Filedrop lets you wirelessly transfer files between two computers as long as both are in the same local network, without the inconvenience of setting up shared drives. The great thing about Filedrop is that it works with both Windows and Macs; soon the developer behind it will also release iOS and Android versions of the program as well. Aside from transferring files, Filedrop also lets you stream photos and audio files from one device to another. This feature is great for impromptu presentations or other instances where you don’t necessarily want to leave a copy of a file on another computer.

Here’s proof of Filedrop’s cross-platform compatibility:

You can download Filedrop from its official website. For larger file transfers, you’ll be better off just using a flash drive. If you want to keep your files synced between devices, then you’ll be better off with a cloud service like Dropbox. But for quick sharing and copying I reckon Filedrop is better than either of those long term options. I for one can’t wait for its mobile apps.
