How to exchange files between iOS, Android and PC


AirDrop is a service for iOS and macOS operating systems, enabling the transfer of files among Mac computers and iOS devices without using e-mail, web storage (google drive, dropbox, etc) or data storage device (USB, etc).  The service runs over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.


You cannot use AirDrop to exchange files (images, videos, PDF, etc) between iOS and other operating systems, like Android and Microsoft Windows.  Fortunately, here is a simple wireless workaround:


  1. connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi network
  2. open the webbrowser on both devices
  3. navigate to SnapDrop.net or ShareDrop.io  (whatever works best for you)
  4. you may have to refresh the page to find your other device


You can now transfer files from any device to the other.  Have fun!
