We are living in a fast moving world, for which faster data transfer is very crucial for existence. Existing resources are updated or new technologies are developed in time to balance its increasing requirement. Recent Smartphone evolution also emphasized tremendous growth of data transfer technologies, and now we have 3G and 4G networks which can download even a couple of GBs within minutes.
Even though we have ultra-fast internet, phone to phone data transfer using the prominent Bluetooth technology is yet to gain some extra speed. It becomes inconvenient when you send large volumes of data. Here is the role of Xender. Xender is the fastest data transmission app available on Google Play and iTunes. It offers up to 50 times faster data transfer than Bluetooth.
Why people go for it?
Xender was known as Flash Transfer earlier. It is a great free transmission app which utilizes the real power of Wi-Fi direct. You can send all kinds of files including apps, games, movies, songs, folders, documents etc. at lightning speed by simply shaking your device. Only requirement is that both the sender and receiver devices should have Xender installed in them.
By the arrival of Xender, gap between Android and Apple got reduced to a greater extend. Xender can transmit data between two phones powered by different operating systems. Xender is powered by direct-connection technique, which utilizes no data, SIM Card or Wi-Fi internet. It can take up to 2m/s speed so that you can even transfer a full length movie within 50 seconds.
If your friend doesn’t have Xender on his device, you can send a copy of your Xender using in-app transmission method, which uses Bluetooth. When both of you are set up, one of you should initiate a Wi-Fi hotspot by clicking Create a connection button. Those who are willing to join the group should click the Search to Join button and select the group. Xender supports multi-phones interconnect so that you can have as many friends as possible in a group. Select the files to be shared and send them by simply shaking the device or clicking send button.
You can help your friend to get Xender in different ways. One way is the Bluetooth invitation, which we saw above. Your friend should have enabled ‘unknown resources’ on his/hers phone in order to install the Xender apk received this way. Other method is two-dimensional code scanning. One can get Xender free download link by scanning the code using their phone. Also, you can send a link as SMS directly from Xender. Use second and third methods only if you don’t care about data flow or if you have a fast WLAN environment. If yours is an old version of Xender and your friend needs the latest version, ask him to download it from PHPNuke or app stores.
Transformation of Flash Transfer to Xender refined the transmission technique to a greater extend. Xender doesn’t trigger multiple sensors other than your Wi-Fi Direct simultaneously so that it doesn’t drink as much juice as other applications do. Also, Wi-Fi zone created by Xender gets more coverage compared to Bluetooth. User Interface of Xender is very intuitive and clean.
