Infinit is a peer-to-peer file sharing application launched in 2014 and quickly gained something of a cult following. It’s service, the ease of use and the advantages it offers, well, they are all too good ignore.
Since then, there has been a growing interest in whether it would ever go mobile – its apps have traditionally been desktop based.
Given that people are using their smartphones more than ever to share pictures, documents and other things, offering a mobile-friendly service simply made sense.
Well, the startup has just announced in an official blog that it has finally designed such an app for Android and iOS smartphones.
“There’s no doubt that we’re taking more and more photos and videos with our smartphones,” it explained.
“What’s more is that the high end cameras from Apple, Samsung and the like create increasingly higher quality images that are much larger in size.
“Because Infinit has no limits, you can send any number of photos and videos in a matter of seconds, and you never have to worry about Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger or SMS degrading the quality of your photos because of compression.”
Some of the benefits of this service, compared to others, is the speed of transfer – at least two times faster in normal conditions and as much as 30 times when both devices are connected to Wi-Fi.
A particular highlight is what it calls an “unstoppable” feature – in short, every transfer is guaranteed.
For example, it is usually the case that when an internet connection is lost during a transfer, the file in question will be “cancelled”.
With Infinit, all that happens is a “pause”. No internet simply means the transfer has temporarily come to an end. When you once again get a connection, the file will eventually go through.
