Reviews on SHAREit - Transfer & Share
I'm not sure activating the GPS function ins imperative to find friends OR other users nearby, as i highly doubt that's needed for connectivity. I don't see that exact notification when i connect to a hotspot of a friend's phone, but why here? what's so important about knowing where i live? I'm not expecting an answer, i mean why should i, but i just want to put this out there.
it use to be the best file transfering app ever...but now its probably one of the worst... 1. it use to be user friendly but now they have just bloated it with unwanted features so it's become hard to use it.i don't even know where to find my transfer history!! 2. connection fails most of the time, it only get connected with QR code now. 3. unwanted video player. idk who watches videos on shareit. 4. try to minimize the ads a little. I know it's a free app but cant youl make it like before??
Hi. The History icon is still in the app. First, press "Local" and you will see "Others" at the bottom right of the interface. Then press "Others" and you see "History" icon. Hope this will solve your problem. If you have any other problems or suggestions, please contact us. Wish you a good day :-)
i am finding it very difficult to connect to any nearby device. sharing has become so cumbersome. and the ads cover the entire screen so you can't figure out whether the device is showing or not.. it has also stopped showing the name of the person connecting with you.. why so many ridiculous changes have been made to a perfectly fine software??!
Hi, we are sorry. 1)Could you please give us some screenshots of those ads?We will locate the issue with your details. 2)Please tell us more details about your transfer problems. Hopefully you could send us a screen recording. Email: [email protected]
The more detailed info you provide, the more quickly I can locate the issue. Thanks a lot!
I wonder everyone knew that if you share a paid applications to another, they dont need to pay for it, which is cool though, because i was like, friend, can you please share your geometry dash full ver for me? And he was like, alright, and i was thinking that i probably need to purchase it, and it shared it to me for free! Awesome..
Fast transfer, slow anything else. It's used to be a powerfull file transfer app, but recently it's bloated with many "features" that I say "does it have to do with me copying files?". I understand ads are needed if you want to go free, but does it have to fullscreen ad with timer followed by another fullscreen ad with another timer. Can't you just cover half the screen with ad all the time, that way at least it's not wasting the user's time. And what with the particularly useless "Report" screen
Hi, Saint, we are sorry for this. Could you please give us some screenshots of those ads? Which part disturbs you most? If the ads were unavoidable, where do you least want to see them? We will locate the issue and make adjustments with your details. Please email us at [email protected]
Looking forward to your reply and have a nice day:-)
Will you stop cluttering the app with unwanted features? We don't need 'rich resources from the internet', all we're trying to do is transfer content from one phone to another, simple as that. Stop selling out your users with more ads than necessary. This becomes worse with every update. Speaking of updates, your app auto-updates itself forcefully even though i have explicitly disabled auto updates (wifi & cellular) within playstore. I would appreciate it if you could tell me how to disable it!
although app feels too good to transfer the files. but still i don't get why the app is forcing us to turn on Bluetooth and location services. i dont know why these are used to transfer files. even though shareit does not work on NFC or Bluetooth. i never seen anything like that in the menu or settings within the app. so please let us know
Hi, Sebin, we ask for some permissions just to enable users to share things normally. For example, due to restriction set by Google, Android 6.0 and above users need to give location permission and turn it on so that they can find others' hotspot. If you want to know more in detail, please contact us: [email protected]
It's very easy app. When you use this app it makes more easier when you want to share the projects or music photos or videos through this app. Not complicated and very helpful in terms of service . Very creative and unique performance this app. Just give more small videos and funny videos. Good job to your app creation in whole world. Your app is so easy and not complicated. I satisfied within this service app . I suggest make more helpful and make easier within this app.

*Developers should read this. This is a very good application to transfer data from mobile to pc. It connect to pc in a matter of seconds. Transfer Giga byte's of files in few minutes. You do not have to waste hours of your time to connect with pc it works jolly good, that is why I have rated 5-stars for this application. ps:- this whole review is sarcastic .
Hello, in this case we highly recommend "Webshare" function(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KN7o-O9ck4&feature=youtu.be). If it still doesn't work,please contact us. Thank you:-)
thanks a lot share it...simple and user friendly sharp ,and higher speeds and faster connections and transfers ,really and great app to share some music or apps really quick.share it has really developed over the past few years and now to making this all in one app ,Wow! I'm impressed .but there still a few technical issues at hand that i would share it to fix.,but otherwise I am satisfied!
There was a time when I gave Shareit a 5. but not anymore, it is filled with stuff I don't want and it downloads videos without permission. It's meant to be an app for file sharing but you will be lucky if you even able to do that anymore! it usually doesn't connect to other devices nd wen it does, it just doesn't send. it is a heavy app that doesn't do the one thing it's intended for on all 3 of my devices! I would be happy for a lighter app that just does one thing proper
DO NOT INSTALL!! heed my warning. find another better app. honestly this used to be the best file sharing app. but since they focused on monitizing, they are now full of ads. they've also added unwanted features such as video players and it's very annoying to be displaying on your lockscreen and drop down menus. plus you now need to open your bluetooth and gps. they make your bluetooth keep on re-opening automatically even when you close the app!! just revert back to the old basic that we loved
1) Too much ads. 2) Online videos gets automatically downloaded whithout permission or gets transferred from one device to another during file sharing which is like a Virus. 3) There is no option to stop automatic online video download/transfer. 4) Connection between devices takes a lot of time and even fails to connect most of the time. 5) Runs in background everytime and drains a lot of battery. All of these are very annoying and i request the developers to stop/fix this things.
Hi, Vibez, we are sorry. 1)Could you please give us some screenshots of those ads? 2)Would you like to tell us under what circumstances does the video download automatically? And what is your last step? Please send us some detailed information via email ([email protected]
) so that we can further locate it. For other problems, please contact us.
The app used to work a million times better without the update. It doesnt let me connect to pc or any device. It sucks so bad that even after i connect to a common network it shuts that off and then starts a hotspot instead which again doesn't connect or get detected by the other device. There was once i successfully managed to make the connection and hit send but it doesnt transfer even a byte of data.
Hi, Jonathan, we are sorry. You can use QR code to connect to other phones, which is at the upper right corner of the searching interface. If it still exists, please contact us to tell more details and send us a screen recording. Feel free to contact us at [email protected]
This app has become pathetic and unbearable. Before, you establish connection between devices 1st before you select the files you wish to transfer. Now, you select all the files to send 1st then you attempt to establish a connection which often results into failure. Pathetic updates and added unnecessary features makes connection between devices very difficult especially Android to IOS. Thankfully, Google always comes up with a more reliable application of the original.
Hi, Andrei, we're sorry for this. 1)New features are simply made to provide people with easy access to rich online resources. We guarantee that they will not affect the transfer function. 2)Could you please give us more details of your problem (like failure to find receiver)? Also include a screen recording. Email: [email protected]
I selected photos on gallery, then tapped on Share to send via SHAREit to a friend. SHAREit opens up, then asks to choose which photos to share again. IDIOT. So I chose the same photos again, tapped Send, then the app went back to ask which photos to share again, and nothing happened on the receiver's side. There was not even any error message on either side saying that the first attempt failed, as if I never did it. This app works like a scam.
Hi, Mauri, so sorry about this. Our developers will help you out. Please send me a screen recording of your operation steps and tell me your app version, Android version and phone model. Email: [email protected]
The more detailed info you provide, the more quickly I can locate the issue. Thanks a lot!
All I can say is it is much slower than before because of too much updates. The transfer process before is a lot faster. Please bring back the old SHAREit, it's much better before than now. There's no annoying videos. It's a sharing app, there's no need for videos, all we want is to transfer, not watch.
This app is ok, but has numerous issues, the first issue is it most of the time fails to connect, and gets a broken connection as well, another issues is the app just shoves unnecessary ads in my face, and causes adware issues, it's ok when it decides to connect so I can transfer files, but rarely works, I'll be finding another app for file transfers cause this app slows down my performance due to the adware problem.
Hi, Kiran, we are sorry. You can use QR code to connect to other phones, which is at the upper right corner of the searching interface. If it still exists, please contact us to tell more details and send us a screen recording. Feel free to contact us at [email protected]
I gave it one rating becuase it deserve it. Few years ago it was a perfect app. But now its nothing but a rubbish app. Becuase when I transfer a file from my phone to another device then it wants the permission for a lot of thing to open. Such as bluetooth,wifi dot dot dot...this makes me annoyoing , i know these are important to open,but why dont you open these automatically? why do you want permission?

If you'll are trying to kill this app then you have succeeded. I found 5 other apps similar to this and probably better. Bluetooth, location, videos, notifications, none of those are needed. A simple straight forward wifi transfer will do and everyone agrees on this. Make it simple and sell it.

Come on, we didn't come here to use this app for freakin "news"/"ads", we came here to transfer files, why do something that can ruin an app to this level of being unbearable. Please change it to the way it was, and it became way way way harder to establish a connection between devices.
I really like it cuz in android, you can't screen record the audio so I resort to this. My grandfather has an iPhone and I used it to screen record and screen record here. It's just pretty hard to figure it out if ur having ur first try from ios to Android so yeh. But other than that I have no problem else. U should try it!
recent connectivity issues has made the app worse. its so difficult to connect to mobile phones and why the need to update share it everytime. Then only connectivity issues are solved to some extent. people have uninstalled the app as it has so many connectivity issues. This issues have started coming after movies etc for online watching have started to upload on the app. unistalling the app.
YAY!!! MORE ADS... PRO TIP:- If you don't want to see those so called "rich online resources". Simply change your language and region to United States of America or any other countries. It will not show those "rich online resources". I guess no one use this pathetic app there. lol.
Hi, we indeed still focus on improving file-sharing service. New features are simply made to provide people with easy access to rich online resources. We really need your suggestions to polish our product. Could you please tell us which part you are dissatisfied about and why? Please contact me via [email protected]
I used to recommend this app before but not anymore. First, from a simple File Sharing App it has become a bloated mishmash of unnecessary things that isn't really required. Second, the connection is now very iffy; it keeps on disconnecting, and re-connecting is a pain that wouldn't work unless you restart the app or the connection. Finally, the transfer speed is so slooooooow. (I have an updated app and transferring from a Redmi Note 4x to a Redmi Note 7.)
Hi, Maki, did you fail to connect to receiver even if receiver never left? If so, please follow these steps: go to "WLAN and find "Additional Settings" and then find "WLAN Assistant”. Turn off this function and then open SHAREit to share again. If you still have problems, please send me a screen recording at [email protected]
DONT DOWNLOAD!Before we could share our files easily without any problem. Now it is filled with ads and useless,nasty videos.Some of the videos are so useless,nasty and filthy that I am just totally shocked! Videos of girls wearing disgusting clothes men doing useless stuff and many other! Any modest person(Muslim at least)will hate having these in a transfer app which is supposed to do its job and not to show us videos! Many people are complaining, we want the OLDSHAREIT!I am uninstalling this!
Can you make a lite version of this app!! SHAREit now is a heavy app, tons of unnecessary things, its not like before! Please make SHAREit good again. We just want to share files! Why you keep sending us videos!! I like the old shareit.. This is the time to uninstall the app
It's simple while we are sharing any file to windows phone from our android phone our hot-spot is created and in windows phone they connect our hot-spot through their Wi-Fi. While connecting with Wi-Fi and entering the password from windows phone it's showing couldn't connect. So it's better to modify share it such that when our android phone hot-spot is created it should be open hot-spot without password as in android version below 6.0.
Hey, Yogendra, we're sorry for this. Could you please give us more details of your problem (like failure to find receiver or hotspot set-up issue)? We'd appreciate if you could also send us a screen recording. We'll look into it carefully and fix it. Email: [email protected]
Thanks a lot!
Share it is a pretty good application for transferring phots, videos and files of applications. However, I don't like the ads coming repeatedly during the process of transferring apps and photos and videos etc. If the developer could fix these problems it would probably be the best app to transfer phots and apps.
sharing has become so complicated! miss the old shareit where all you had to do was click share & receive on the respective phones! unfortunately I had to finally uninstall it after wasting a frustrating 20mins trying & failing to share data between my 2 phones! I can see from the reviews that other users are also facing the same issue.. giving it 3 stars for when it was less complicated and sharing wasn't too complicated
it used to be a faster and easy to use app and it gets uncomfortable more & more in each updates. i can remember, i used to transfer a 2 GB movie in some seconds, but todays it takes some minutes over the bluetooth,wifi,... if it can connect to another device, which is another issue itself
The app, when it was started had a great user experience.. Simple and easy to use... Now the app is just filled with useless ads. Who needs a recommended video for streaming, latest news(just clickbait topics).. and other junk in a file sharing app???? Present UI is irritating. Hate to use.

shareit was the best share app in the android once upon a time. but now-a-days, it is the worst and worst app ever to use. There is so much Bugs and dysfunctions, Annoying Digusting Advertises, different xxx videos etc. i gave it 5 star when it was new... But now i give only 1 star due to its stickyness and slow functions.

After a year or more using this app frequently to share installed educational games from my phone to those of my kids, NEVER failed. not Once! you share, other phone receives, confirm to install and off you go. No need to pay data AGAIN. download once, share to many via bluetooth, no charge. Great! I do however agree FULLY that the previous version was UI easy, simple and easy... ads make this app free I know, but could they be less in your face? maybe not force me for 5 secs before skip?
the sharing functions are the best for sure. but you guyz are going too much with the ads. Why don't you understand, We don't want rich online content or video player or photo viewer, we already have bunch of them. I think you are pushing it too hard for the user. And the update of infinity is another pain in the a**. Just stick to the main functionality, ShareIt !!!
Thought of giving just 1 Star because of the difficulty i have been facing in Sharing files, permissions and Preparations I understand but what happens after both the devices are connected is an issue. flooding my notification bar with unwanted videos is another irritating feature (Sorry Not A Feature But A Bug). Just to let you know I am switching to another App called SuperBeam as its fast and easy. Sorry Team Shareit. would definitely give 5 Stars once you make this app user friendly.
Waste and third class app. Requires a lot of permissions but fails to connect almost every time, even worse while connecting to pc. As updates are released almost every month but no improvement in the app. sharing capabilities are ruined with every update. The initial versions were way too good then present versions...
Hi, sorry for this. You can update the newest SHAREit from Play Store to have better experience. If it still exists, could you please give us more details of your problem (like failure to find receiver)? Please include a video of the operation steps. We'll look into it carefully and fix it. Email: [email protected]
pathetic app, doesn't let me connect to IOS device despite following all steps...just doesn't recognize. Iphine keeps waiting for Android to send however android doesn't recognize the IOS device n in case u go back to re-do it changes the user name and password. Then you've to connect IOS to new network name prompted by Android shareit and it becomes a never ending frustrating loop. Please fix this asap else I'll try someone else to transfer my files to IOS. Poor maintenance, only care about ads

The more detailed info you provide, the more quickly I can locate the issue. Thanks a lot!
When I bought my first phone, this app was so helpful & user friendly. But now it's worst than ever. Full of ads and adult videos. Sometimes it even can't connect to other device for share any files...Giving 1★. Very disappointed. I'm transferring to MI DROP.

It was such an awesome app which did exactly what it was designed to do - Transfer files. Now it's just filled with bloatware, video recommendations etc. Is it possible to have a legacy app with just file transfer and maybe some ads for your revenue?
