It also has a web version that can be used on either Laptops or Desktops. It is more efficient than Bluetooth in that it transfers bigger files in a shorter time than Bluetooth has ever been able to transfer. It also has a wider range of media that it is able to transfer.

It can be used without having a data connection, USB cables, or a cord of any kind. You also do not need to have the software on your PC to connect it to your PC.

You would need just a web browser to access the web version. It comes in a white themed form but can be changed to night mode (for those who prefer dark themed apps).

  1. In-app music and video player
  2. A Whatsapp status downloader
  3. An avenue to download videos from Facebook or Instagram by just inputting the links
  4. An mp3 converter that enables you to convert videos to mp3 audio files
