SHAREit - Transfer & Share beta Community Report 📲 Google Pixel XL 2, Android 8.1.0

ShareIt is a file sharing app with a lot of different features.

It allows you to share files via BT or Wi-Fi. I liked the possibility to follow people and adding files to the public folder. It works like a shared folder on PC where you can share whatever you like. It can also clean storage, manage installed apps etc.

The UI is fine but it is a bit full of different ads. The app also promotes other apps from this developer.

The first issue I saw was a loading animation which looks like the app is lagging. It is just an animation problem which should be easy to replace.

After the fourth app opening it starts showing a stream of ads on the main view.

This is mostly a mix of ads, videos and apps to install which is not very user-friendly. I want to open this app once a week when I meet my friends to share something and I don't want to click on ads to be able to do that.

In the end, this app has done quite well in general and many corner cases are handled properly here like no connection, device rotation and others which is a big Plus.

  • App Idea check - PASS
  • Functionality check - PASS
  • No connection check - PASS
  • Screen rotation check - PASS
  • Ads level check- FAIL

Not that much I want to add here, just try it. The app has a beta community in Google Plus which is also a good thing!

Happy Testing!
