What's In Here
Have you ever needed to send files for work, or wanted to share photos of your holiday on the go and on your phone? In my busy schedule, I don’t always have time to print or want to spend the money to send files over data on my phone.
So, I went on the hunt to find apps that can help me share files over WiFi quickly and efficiently. Through my search, I ran across this helpful article which included some great app suggestions.
Check out the link below, but do keep reading on to find what I have discovered about using apps to share files via hotspots.
No Need For Expensive Data Usage
If you have ever had a not-so-good jaw-dropping moment when you open your mobile phone bill, you know data usage can add up over the month.
Along with preventative measures like connecting to local wifi whenever possible, paying attention to which apps are using the most data in the background, or limiting your video watching and photo downloads, you can manage your apps and find apps to help you share files.
So, next time you want to send a file, check to see if you’re around a decent internet connection. I always do this by connecting then using a speed checker app.
You can also download an app that will automatically find the closest Wifi connections to you and decipher which has the highest quality and speed to connect to.
Sharing with Co-Workers & Teams
I work with a team from all across the world, therefore, we are constantly sending files to each other, as well as to the whole team.
For this reason, I choose an app that allows me to share files simultaneously with multiple people. The best way to achieve this is by connecting to a WiFi hotspot and having a file-sharing app designed for groups and large files.
This is also beneficial for your group of friends or band to share music or videos.
I have friends all over the world, and we still like to be able to share our newest musical interests with each other. Therefore, finding an app that allows you to share music files with all your friends would be ideal.
In addition, some music may not be allowed in different countries, or if you’re sharing confidential information with a co-worker living overseas, you should be inclined to search for a secure VPN app.
This way, your friends can receive the music or videos not yet available, or your co-worker will receive the confidential information without it being compromised by an open WiFi connection.
Sharing While Traveling
Now, when you travel for holiday, you’ll want to take loads of pictures and not have to be worried about running out of space on your phone.
If this happens on vacation, you either have to take the time to put them on your computer or you have to go through them and chose which ones to delete…forever.
Luckily, there are free and paid apps now that you can take all the pictures you want, then when you connect to WiFi, your pictures will automatically load to the app’s cloud.
Most apps are free, but cloud storage upgrades can cost a small amount monthly. That way, you always have plenty of space on your phone for pictures or videos, even offline.
If you want to be able to share files, small or large on the go, you can download apps that will make file sharing easy.
With a simple hotspot connection, you can download file-sharing apps to send documents, pictures, videos, and more to colleagues or friends and family.
You can also download apps that protect your sharing information. Sharing information with many people or a friend across the world has never been easier.
