Another one of those super light super anonymous super useful tools that quickly went from let’s-try to use-it-every-day.
SnapDrop solves my problem of quickly getting stuff from device to device without cables, USB or cloud drives. It does so from my browser, across platforms.
Where FilePizza lets you send files across the internet, SnapDrop works when you’re standing right next to each-other. Or at least are in the same building.
Sending files with SnapDrop couldn’t be easier. On your laptop, pc or phone, open snapdrop.net from any recent browser. The bottom of your screen will now show what random (geeky) nickname your device has been given.
Now, on the other device, also open snapdrop.net. That’s it.
Click on one of the devices in your screen to send one or more files to it. Right-click (or long-touch) to send a message.
That really is all there is to it. No install needed.
