SuperBeam is a file sharing app that allows you to quickly and effortlessly transfer files between two devices.
How does SuperBeam work?
SuperBeam allows you to share any kind of file with another device using WiFi or WiFi Direct, functioning in much the same way as Bluetooth sharing. You can also send files from within applications using the 'Share' button.
You can share files with another SuperBeam user via the app, or to any WiFi connected device via their other person's web browser.
Share files in a snap
To share a file with another person using SuperBeam you just select the file (or folder, if you upgrade to the Pro version) and the app will generate a QR code. The other person simply scans this QR code and, assuming they're connected to the same WiFi network, the file will be transfered. You can bypass the QR code option and transfer the files via NFC, if your device supports it.
A Bluetooth killer?
We found transfer speeds with SuperBeam to be impressively quick, and you can send even very large files in seconds if your WiFi connection is fast enough. In terms of speed it blows Bluetooth out of the water, although Android Beam is still a simpler solution.
