Shair is the newest in a long line of iOS tools designed to streamline transfer of files among your iOS devices and computers or laptops. Unlike some others, however, Shair is attractive and works more or less on autopilot. There are clients available on multiple devices to make it as easy as possible to install and move files between versions of the app.
The first time you open Shair, you'll be greeted with a screen explaining exactly what the app does as it automatically starts searching for compatible devices. All you need to do is be on the same Wi-Fi network as another device that is also running Shair (clients work on iPhones, iPads, Macs, and PCs). Send files between versions of the app and they immediately appear in your inbox where you can open them, move them, or send them to someone else using the same app. You can copy and paste text and links to other users, move your photos from the library, or send photos directly from the camera app.
There are many apps in the App Store that offer the same functionality as Shair, but few do it in such an attractive, easy-to-use package. Compatible with any device for which Avasoft has created an app, Shair is the best free option currently available for either the iPad or the iPhone to transfer files, photos, or text between devices. It is a perfect companion to your Mail and Messages apps and a great way to enhance the functionality of your device.
