Send Anywhere – Anonymously Transfer Files Between Devices

Just as the name implies, Send Anywhere is an application that people can use to send an unlimited number of files to anyone, anywhere, on any device. Whether files are being sent cross-network or cross-platform, Send Anywhere automatically adjusts to find the best performance-transferring path between any two devices.

Send Anywhere works by pairing two devices with temporarily generated key confirmations, and then transferring files instantly through an “optimal network path” between those two devices. Send Anywhere is a peer-to-peer service, which means you don’t have to worry about your sensitive information being stored on the company’s servers. Before you can send a file through Send Anywhere, you’ll need a six-digit one-time key. Select which files you’re looking to send, and get your key code. If you’ve got access to the device you’re sending the files to, then you can enter the key yourself. If not, give the key to the recipient—typically through a push request alert—to enter in his or her device. As soon as the key has been entered, the files will be transferred.

Send Anywhere uses SSL encryption, and it offers a way for people to quickly send files over 3G, 4G, or WiFi. Although Send Anywhere is a mobile application, the company also offers a web-service that people can use to send files from PC to mobile. While there are no limitations on file sizes with Send Anywhere, the application does limit the storage time for uploaded files to between 24 and 48 hours.

Practical Uses:

  • Send large files from your PC to your mobile phone
  • Quickly transfer images from your iPhone to your laptop
  • Securely share business documents with a colleague
  • Receive music files on an Android device

Insider Tips:

  • If both devices are on the same network Send Anywhere’s file transfer uses P2P connections
  • Change the app settings to get an enhanced security key
  • Users have the option to connect via WiFi or cellular data
  • Play music files received through Send Anywhere by previewing those files in your Receive Box or your Etc folder

What we liked:

  • There are no size limitations when sending files through Send Anywhere
  • Send Anywhere doesn’t require that Bluetooth be activated to send files
  • Files are passed through Send Anywhere without being stored on the server

What we didn’t like:

  • Standard data plan rates apply when users share files while their phones are connected through a cellular service
