Old Device, New Device Transfer-Send Anywhere UC#1

Easily Migrate Data From Your Old to New Device

This is the first entry in a new series that will be centered around Use Cases (UC) of Send Anywhere. In this entry, we’re going to discuss using Send Anywhere when transferring data from your old to new device.

Buying a New Phone or Tablet? Don’t Forget Send Anywhere!

One of the issues that everyone runs into when purchasing a new smartphone is how to transfer data (photos, contacts, videos, etc.) from their old device to their new one as quickly and pain-free as possible. Sadly, there does not appear to be an easy way to go about this.

Needs New Device

While there are various applications that you can use to accomplish this, they can only be used in a piecemeal process such that there is no one application that will allow you to transfer all of this data at once. Some applications only do photos, others contacts, etc. In all, you might have to download three separate applications on each device just to transfer photos, videos, and contacts. Seems awfully troublesome and complicated.

But what about Dropbox and Cloud-based applications? Well, while these types of applications would solve some of the problems mentioned above, they are still lacking in efficiency as they require logging on across both devices as well do not allow you to directly send data between devices but rather push it to the Cloud first, adding an additional step to the entire process.

Send Anywhere 3.0

All this is avoidable if you download Send Anywhere. Send Anywhere’s file agnostic approach means that you can send all of these file formats between both of your devices, simplifying the file transfer, and making the arduous task of migrating to a new phone much simpler. Furthermore, Send Anywhere requires zero logging in or signing up as well as sends data directly between devices as opposed to storing in the Cloud. It is available on Android, iOS, Windows Tablet , and Windows Phone.

…Works Well With Laptops and Desktops as Well!

In looking to quickly transfer files off of your old laptop or desktop and onto your new one, look no further than Send Anywhere. External hard drives can be expensive and transferring via email is not optimal when send large file batches. With Send Anywhere, you can select which file(s), mp3(s), video(s), etc. that you want to transfer from your old to your new device. As with smartphones and tablets, you are not bogged down by any limitations on file size or the number of files you can send and the application is 100% free. Send Anywhere works across Mac, Windows, and Linux (34bit and 64bit)

As always, try out our API to harness the power of Send Anywhere within your own application.
