    Better because of internet link generating for files but if you use Shareit pc and mobile you will find more interesting options.

    No Bloat, barely any ads. Connects to devices much faster than Shareit's "seach and detect". Easily shares any files, up to more than 200 files in one transmission. It is able to send with and without wifi, just like Shareit, to send it without wifi you need the Desktop app, which everyone who has been complaining about not being able to send was using the browser version.

    it needs INTERNET connection to transfer file between android and windows. in fact it uploads files to the server then windows should download it. you can do this with every browser. no need for "send anywhere". in fact in terms of android- windows transfer send anywhere does nothing

    although it does need internet connection, the distance is definitely better than shareit
