JioSwitch - Transfer Files & Share It or can simply be called as JioSwitch is a free mobile file-sharing and peer to peer application. Developed by Reliance Jio Digital Services Private Limited—one of the leading digital services in India—this tool enables you to easily transfer files between Android and iOS devices from one smartphone to another. You’ll be able to send and receive various videos, photos, apps, music, and other cellular data such as contacts, call logs, calendar, and messages. This is very convenient to have especially if you changed your phone.
Ad-free and rapid transfer speed
This lightweight utility that weighs only 6.4MB is one of the few file-sharing apps that are free from truckloads of intrusive advertisements. Its sharing speed is exceptional with a transfer rate that is more than a hundred times faster than Bluetooth and it can go up to a maximum of 20MB per second using hotspot. It also added a QR scan code feature which makes it possible for you to send and receive files and data even without internet connection thus, you’ll be able to save your data package.
With the series of updates, the developer improved and applied tons of features. For instance, it reduced the number of user permissions needed and the revamped version is now capable to work on Android 10. All the issues regarding the folder location of all transferred files and Install App Button in Received Apps screen were fixed. Furthermore, the crashes experienced by the users when transferring files through Wifi Direct and Firebase were also repaired.
The only thing that failed to be completely overhauled is the app’s poor user interface. You can’t expect to have a smooth and hassle-free user experience within this app as its hard to use and needs a lot of work on it. To give you an overview of how awful this app’s interface, you cannot see files and folders from the computer in a browser, and whenever you press the button on any phone, a particular area darkens in other apps. It doesn't give any visual response which makes it even more complicated to use.
Badly needs UI improvements
With an array of enhancements it executed, it is obvious that the developer of JioSwitch is eager to work on the bugs and issues that the app showcases and provide a great alternative to ShareIt especially with the Chinese block movement of the Indian government. They need to particularly pay attention to the tool’s user interface which performs very poorly.
