In the past, users had to rely on a variety of slow solutions if they wanted to transfer data. A PC was needed to make CDs and DVDs, and older PCs couldn’t read the data which was written on them due to outdated tech.
The first feature phones which featured file transfer capabilities relied on the use of Bluetooth or a data cable. The advent of modern smartphones led to the appearance of file transferring apps, which allow users to send large amounts of data with just a few taps.
Xender is one of the best file transfer apps in the world. Below you can find a complete guide for the app and all of its features.
