Xender is a file transfer tool that allows users to share files between multiple Android devices in less time than most other similar apps. The incredible speed with which this app works is achieved through the use of the NFC protocol of each of the devices between which files are transferred. This technique differs from other programs that use WiFi or Bluetooth to accomplish the goal. When compared to file transfer via Bluetooth, this process of transferring files by using NFC protocols can be up to 40 times faster. That's pretty impressive.

The types and number of files that user may transfer with Xender are virtually limitless. Everything from files, music, images, videos, and contacts can easily be moved from one device to another, assuming the two devices are near each other. You can even transfer contacts between users. You are not limited to just transferring between two devices, either. As many as five users can share information as long as they are all within a reasonable distance of one another.

Xender also features a user interface that is easy to understand and simple to use. The speed with which this app transfers files is really the most outstanding aspect, though.

Pros:

  • User-friendly interface.
  • Transfers files between up to five devices.
  • File transfer speed is much faster than using WiFi or Bluetooth.

Cons:

  • Some users complain about the number of permissions Xender requires during installation.
  • File transfer does not run in the background.
