In this age of government-sponsored attacks on our privacy and eavesdropping of our digital exchanges, incredibly weak security in most sharing apps frustrates me. Unless you use iMessage or select few services, the spooks can pretty easily intercept those nude shots as they’re being uploaded.
So why take the risk and not opt for the device-to-device sharing method, whenever possible?
While iOS’s AirDrop feature is great, it leaves a lot to be desired. AirDrop isn’t very reliable, doesn’t cope well with large media files and is unavailable on other platforms, making direct photo sharing with an Android friend mostly a pipe dream.
Enter BitTorrent, one of the most common protocols for transferring large files. Based on peer-to-peer technology, their new mobile app called Shoot can help you share batches of photos and video directly between multiple devices, no matter what device you use or what network you’re on.
As it bypasses the cloud, utilizes encryption and was built from the ground up on top of the proven BitTorrent Sync engine, Shoot can move gigabytes of files easily and securely so your data remains completely private.
