Xender: Transfer files faster between phones

Posted by

Originally named Flash share or Flash Transfer, and recently renamed Xender, this app is a WiFi File transfer application. It is always pre-installed in TECNO phones and on some low end/budget Android devices. One notable feature of this app is that with it, you can share files between Android devices at very fast speeds, even faster than Bluetooth.

How To Use This App?

1.) Locate it in your phone’s app drawer and run it for the first time. You are presented with a page where you are required to pick an avatar and name.

2.) The homepage opens. Then you have to pair the two devices you want to share files with. From the homepage, click on “Connect with Friends” or “Connect phone

Flash X connect

3.) On one of the phones, “Create group” or “Create a connection” while on the other, you “Join Group” or “Join a Connection“.

4.) Once paired, mark files and send, or shake the phone to send.

  1. Soji, Xender is (or was) FlashShare, what evidence points otherwise. Elroy didn’t touch on Xender’s APK extraction facility even though the screenshots allude to it

  2. Have heard of Xender, tried to use it once, but couldn’t get the hang of it fast enough.

    I searched, came across…

    ShareIt

    and

    CShare

    Now, I roll with

    ShareIt

    and have never had a reason to look further.

    Both available free on Google play.

    Both can do transfers across all platforms, Windows Desktop inclusive.

    ShareIt. My vote.

  3. This app is amazing (exact same footprint as Gionee Xender). I got a new device and transferred over 70 apps and its content in less than 25 minutes using Flashshare. Pure joy.

  4. Valuable information! Looking forward to seeing your notes posted. Thank you for sharing the nice article. Good to see your article.
