​All about ShareMe App

ShareMe was a file transfer utility that was introduced by Xiaomi in MIUI 7 (on 2015) as a name of Mi Drop

Later in MIUI 9, it was launched as a separate app for Android/IOS with a new name as ShareMe

Features of ShareMe App

  • Transfer & share all kinds of files
  • Share files without the Internet
  • Lightning-fast speed
  • Transfer files between all Android devices
  • Resume interrupted transfers
  • Minimal​ and user-friendly Interface
  • Ad-Free
  • No limit for file transfer
  • Supports multiple languages

Why ShareMe is better than other apps like ShareIt and Xender?

  • Design and User Interface

When we consider the User Interface ShareMe(Mi Drop) will be a clear winner because of its simple and minimalistic design.

  • Ads

We all love to use free apps but most of the free apps have ads in it which was a bit annoying right?

​ShareMe/Mi Drop have literally zero ads,​ whereas ShareIt and Xender apps have ads in it

  • App Size/ Apk Size

Size of ShareIt was around 30 to 35MB and size of Xender app was around 20MB

But the size​ of ShareMe app was only from 6 to 8MB(varies with device)

  • Supported Files

All the apps support all kind of formats like images, apks, pdf, videos and many other

  • Transfer speed

Files transfer speed through ShareIt can be reached to 20MB/s, whereas in Xender speed can reach to 40MB/s

But in ShareMe app, the transfer speed can ​reach ​upto 50MB/s

Cons of ShareMe (Mi Drop) app

  • Transfer History

In Mi Drop, we have an option called Received files where we can see the recently received files but not the send files

But both ShareIt and Xender apps will show the history of sent and received files

  • Phone Clone

Whenever we buy a new phone we will try to transfer all the files like messages, contacts to a new phone from the old one right

This process is called phone replication or cloning

But unfortunately, ShareMe app won’t have such option, but whereas Xender have an inbuilt Phone Replicate option
