ShareDrop – HTML5 Clone of Apple AirDrop Service
ShareDrop is HTML5 clone of Apple AirDrop service. It allows you to transfer files directly between devices, without having to upload them to any server first. It uses WebRTC for secure peer-to-peer file transfer and Firebase for presence management and WebRTC signaling.
At the moment ShareDrop allows you to send files only to other devices in the same local network, i.e. devices with the same public IP address.
The main difference between ShareDrop and AirDrop is that ShareDrop requires internet connection to find devices, while AirDrop doesn’t need one – it creates ad-hoc wireless network between them. On the other hand, ShareDrop allows you to send files between mobile (Android) and desktop devices. At the moment, it supports Chrome (desktop and mobile) 33+ and Opera 20+.
