Windows 8.1 App Watch: Send Anywhere

Send Anywhere

File sharing has come a long way. No longer do you have to email or FTP heavy files to share with people. Apps like Send Anywhere make the process even easier.

This is the Windows port of the popular service that allows you to send files of any size from one device to another. Just launched on the Windows Store, the free app can natively send and receive files directly. And although it works well, a little polish would be welcome.

More on that, after the official description:

“This simple, unlimited, instant file transferring app will make file sharing easier than ever before. Send Anywhere is a globally recognized file sharing service that has topped millions of downloads on Windows Phone, Android, iOS, Chrome, and Amazon. It has been written about by major IT outlets such as TechCrunch, TNW, Lifehacker, and CNET as one of the best alternatives to Dropbox.”

The probably did not review the Windows and Windows Phone versions.

Because while the app ticks all the boxes in terms of ease of use, the user interface is really bland and almost looks like something that was crafted together in under an hour.

Hopefully this is polished in future updates to what is a very useful application.

Speaking of useful, the app is free to use and requires no registration. A key is generated when you send your files, which can be used to retrieve them via the web or from within the app. It is a universal release, and works on Windows Phone as well as x86, x64 and ARM versions of Windows.
