In 2014, the ability to share files with other smartphone users, regardless of platform, is one of the top features that users want available to them. Sure, there is email and SMS as the old standbys, but increasingly people want direct ways to offer a song, photo, video, or documents.
Send Anywhere (send-anywhere.com) launched in early 2013 on iOS and Android, and now a port of the app by the company is available on Windows Phone. The free service works by uploading to a server the intended file, generating a numeric code, which you then give to the recipient. Using the same app, the receiver types in the code and retrieves the file to download to their device.
