Another one of those super light super anonymous super useful tools that quickly went from let’s-try to use-it-every-day.
SnapDrop solves my problem of quickly getting stuff from device to device without cables, USB or cloud drives. It does so from my browser, across platforms.
Sending files with SnapDrop couldn’t be easier. On your laptop, pc or phone, open snapdrop.40two.app from any recent browser. The bottom of your screen will now show what random (geeky) nickname your device has been given.
Now, on the other device, also open snapdrop.40two.app. That’s it.
Click on one of the devices in your screen to send one or more files to it. Right-click (or long-touch) to send a message.
That really is all there is to it. No install needed.
