How to Share contacts & Files Between iPhone and Android


To day our topic is how to Share Contacts & Files between iPhone and Android. Apple and Android users have so much things to argue about but when it comes to certain features like sharing anything to others, iPhone users really can’t hold on to their argues. iOS is a closed operating system and apple has strictly limited the file sharing ability of iPhone. iPhone can not send or receive files to another devices. Apple has limited the file sharing ability to devices running on iOS only. On the other hand Android users don’t have this kind of restriction.

The thing is that everyone does not have an iPhone so when the need arises to share something iPhone users will not be able to send or receive anything from another person’s phone unless that person has an iPhone. So, how long can we ignore this, eventually the user will be embarrassed as he is holding a $500 iPhone in his hand and there are phones which are a lot cheaper than his but can send or receive files without any problem.

As nothing is impossible and fortunately there is a way to share files between iPhone and Android which i will be telling you today. There are a lot of third party file sharing apps on the App store which allows to send and receive files between all the devices which have WiFi.

Both Android and iPhone app store has dozen of these files but i would recommend the Send Anywhere app. The reason is that it supports Android, Non-Android OS, all PC platforms and the most amazing thing is that it is free on both Google Play store and App store but unfortunately there is this one limitation that you have to install it on both senders and receivers phone.
