WeTransfer finally lands on Android

It is hard to imagine that there are app developers out there that still limit themselves to the iOS world considering how dominant Android is. Nevertheless, they are out there. However, the group got smaller by one with the announcement this past Friday that WeTransfer is now available for Android through the Google Play Store.

WeTransfer is an app intended to make it easy for users to “share, save and organize ideas”. This is done by making it easy to share large files, which appears to be the basis of WeTransfer. However, more functions are available on top of this standard large file transfer feature – users can save links, article, music and “more”.

Since keeping files in sync and shared is not exactly cutting edge, WeTransfer also integrates into platforms like WhatsApp and Slack to make it easier to tap into their service. Since the type of content can vary, WeTransfer also makes it possible to not only share files directly through the app, but users can setup boards for users to access that contain shared items.

WeTransfer’s CEO Gordon Willoughby notes the following regarding the release for the Android platform:

“The release of the mobile app for all platforms marks a new milestone for WeTransfer, as the company evolves from a simple file-sharing service to providing a wider set of tools for creative minds; from getting inspiration on our editorial platform WePresent, to collecting and organizing ideas on your mobile phone, to sharing the final work via WeTransfer.”

If you are interested in giving WeTransfer a try, you can use the link below grab it from the Play Store. Be careful with your testing though – comments from users are slamming WeTransfer with one-star reviews since this version hit the Play Store.
