This is inspired by Apple’s AirDrop (which is the greatest thing since Napster). ShareDrop lets you transfer files directly between devices without having to upload them to a server first.
ShareDrop allows you to send files to other devices in the same local network (i.e. devices with the same public IP address) without any configuration - simply open www.sharedrop.io on all devices and they will see each other. It also allows you to send files between networks - just click the + button in the top right corner of the page to create a room with a unique URL and share this URL with other people you want to send a file to. Once they open this page in a browser on their devices, you’ll see each other’s avatars.
The major advantage that AirDrop has is that you need an internet connection to discover devices with ShareDrop. The major advantage that ShareDrop has is that you can share between Android and Apple devices.
