Hey @decathect, What makes this better than the airdop service that's on all iPhones?

@jacqvon because you can send it to anything thats not a iPhone/mac/iPad! I usually run into problems trying to Airdrop friends with Android phones (also Airdrop is a bit slow from my experience). Also I tried to make it more intuitive than Airdrop as well, I usually have to explain Airdrop to my friends who have never used it before. (You need to fiddle with your phone's settings (bluetooth, wifi, etc). With this, all you need to do is tell your friend to go on plover.io Lemme know if you have more questions! :D

@jacqvon @decathect this is interesting. What makes you better than Send Anywhere?

@jacqvon @3raxton right off the bat Send Anywhere requires you to send links, keys, or email the recipient. With plover.io all that's required is that you go on the website and you're automatically paired up without any extra hassle (There's no need for prior contact information like emails). Personally I like the idea of telling the other person an animal over a 6 digit code as well! You can have multiple people in a room and eventually I'm going to implement the ability to send files to everyone in the room. (I feel like this will be good for meetings or presentations). Thanks for the input! :)

Just tried it and it was easy to use. This will come in handy for meetings on the go and sending multiple files when needed. Do you have more functionalities on the roadmap?

@angeliquesocial we're planning to add a feature so you can send to everyone (or select certain animals) in the room at once! This will be good for meetings. Also if you notice how the rooms are called "rough-ancient-summit" (randomly generated every time) eventually we want to make it so that you can join other rooms by going to something like plover.io/rough-ancient-summit

@decathect sending files to multiple people sharing the same WiFi is a smart 💡 I also love your idea of making rooms, like Appear.in for sharing files 👍

I gave it a try and I like it, it's pretty simple and intuitive 😎Well done 🤗 Just a quick question in this wave of GDPR, what data other than the file do you capture?

@matthieudeluze we use your IP initially to figure out which room to put you in, but that's only temporary. (If you notice that you're the only person in a room, every time you refresh you get a entirely new room). I don't believe we capture anything other than the file, and the file should be automatically deleted after 3 minutes if no one downloads it.

Wow, this is great! I work in a company with Windows computers and iOS mobile devices. I could see us using this every day. Especially beings that it's web based.
