Detailed Snapdrop Guide

Snapdrop is an android airdrop service for file sharing. You can install it on any android or even an iOS device and access files stored on any other snapdrop device in your local network. It enables you to share files from one android phone to another without using data. Its completely free, secure and accessible from all platforms (Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, Android). You can also use it by pairing phones over Bluetooth or NFC but its best feature is that its internet independent. This way you can share files between two phones which have no means of connectivity or wifi at all (like inside an office). This has many implications especially in business scenarios where people need to collaborate often and are not always connected to a wifi source.
