Whether you’re looking to share your latest vacation photos, a video of your child’s school recital, or contact details for your local dentist, this awesome iPhone and iPad file manager app enables you to do so with a simple six-digit number, making file sharing easier than ever before.

The best file managers for iPhone and iPad

This is a great idea for a file manager app that seems to have been executed very effectively. The interface looks good and seems very stable, and the idea of being able to share files with just a number is a new concept to me. I love it!

Keep reading our Send Anywhere app review for more details and then let us know if you think it's the best file manager for iPhone users.

Convenient File Sharing Utilizing One-Time Keys

Send Anywhere (File Transfer) enables you to share files very easily by using what is referred to as a One Time Key or an OTK. All you have to do is select the file or files that you’d like to share, send the OTK to your friend, and you’re done!

It really is that simple, and I’m thoroughly impressed with how the developer has clearly put an extra effort in to make this app just a little bit different from comparable developments in the Productivity category of the App Store.

Being able to share files with a simple OTK is something that I haven’t come across before, and I think it’s an absolutely fantastic idea.

Move Files to Your Computer via Wi-Fi Transfer

If there are any devices nearby then you can also share files with your friends even more easily by having your device detect theirs so that you can send the OTK to them remotely.

You’ll be pleased to know that you can also send files directly to a computer by using Wi-Fi transfer, which I think is a wonderfully convenient way of quickly moving photos, videos, and music from your iPhone onto your computer without having to go through iTunes.

By sharing, sending and organizing your files, you can also say that this app is a decent file manager for iPad and iPhone users.

There isn’t really much else for me to say about Send Anywhere (File Transfer) because it is a very simple iPhone and iPad app with a pretty straightforward purpose.
