How To Transfer Files/Images/Data From Smart Phone To Laptop/Desktop Using Shareit Webshare Tool?


All smartphone users at least once faced difficulty in the transfer of data from a smartphone to their desktop/ laptops. Especially iPhone users have several limitations in data transfer between iPhone and laptops.

In the case of the iPhone, the Bluetooth functionality is not meant for data transfer. But the android users have more freedom to use the Bluetooth feature for data transfer between laptops and android smartphones.

I am using an iPhone for more than two years, so I can understand the feeling of iPhone users regarding the data transfer between several devices. iTunes is the only apple software interface that allows the users to exchange data between mobile and computer (for Linux users still have the problems because Itune is not available for Linux OS). Still, it has several limitations.

There are several third party software available in the Google Play and Apple app store for data transfer. Most of them utilize wireless or Bluetooth functionality. Android users can opt for both ways to transfer files from mobile to laptops. But in the case of Apple users still, the Bluetooth functionality is not available in several apps.

I personally use the ShareIt app for data transfer from my iPhone/android phone to laptop/desktop. It uses the wireless network for data transfer rather than Bluetooth.

The WebShare tool of ShareIt allows you to transfer data from any smartphone to laptops with any operating system.


Webshare tool allows users to transfer data between smartphone and computers wirelessly. WebShare tool can be accessed through the profile menu of shareit.

Using WebShare tool it is possible to transfer file from android/iOS to any laptops or desktop with any operating system (like windows, iOS, Ubuntu, etc.) No need to install any software in your system.
