After this, you can use shareit with the same procedure as PC or Windows on your Android phone. Wasn’t this convenient?

SHAREit for iOS
There is this one thing that I can criticize iOS for. iOS users can hardly share videos and photos with other devices. Of course over internet everything is available but there is no internal option available.
Well, the good news is that SHAREit also works on iOS devices. Users can share important files and pictures through SHAREit. They can import or export files from iPhone to iPhone or to any other device. SHAREit is available on the iOS store, you can always download it from there.
Procedure to use SHAREit on iOS devices –
Once you have downloaded the application just create your own account on SHAREit!
Find the devices on SHAREit through search option and send the file you want to share. While iOS and windows can share pictures, videos and files, Android users get an extra advantage to share applications.
So, now select the file you want to share and select the “share” button.
Please see that the other device is connected through the same WiFi connection. Click on the “receive” option on the other device.
And your sharing would be done in few seconds.

Well, blackberry is a one of a kind device. The blackberry users are eagerly waiting for SHAREit application on their phones.
