The process to download SHAREit for PC is very simple, official and doesn’t require any Android emulator software like BlueStacks or YouWave. You just need to have a compatible smartphone or Windows computer to get this app running. I’m sharing a complete tutorial over the same.
The only case when you’ll need the help of an Android emulator software is if you wish to download SHAREit for Mac. This is because, there is no official application developed for the Apple’s platform yet. But, I’m sure, Lenovo is going to release a compatible version soon.
Yes, the SHAREit application (Android | iOS | Windows Phone) is developed and maintained by official Lenovo developer. It comes with a tagline, For Those Who Do, which is the tagline of the company itself. But, this app won’t be compatible with every device you may own. You need to check its requirements first and then proceed.
One thing is sure, i.e., the system needs to have Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity. The app uses any of them as per the situation and if it finds its own Wi-Fi direct connection, then it delivers a maximum file transfer speed possible. Also, make sure that the two devices are always in a same room, as you don’t wish to try it over a long distance.

If you’re looking for the perfect reason to switch to this application rather than sticking to traditional ways of file transfer, especially through USB sticks. Then, you must be aware of the fact that USB sticks can always transfer virus or malware or any other kind of infection files.
Not a single USB stick is 100% safe to use unless you are security expert on your own or use a very highly reputable antivirus solution, which is always updated to latest version. The app creates a new connection every time, so, you’re always connected on a perfectly protected file transfer tunnel.
The UI is very simple. The first screen holds two buttons, Send, and Receive. You need to choose the appropriate one on both the devices. The one with Send button opens File Manager to choose and select the file to be transferred. While, the other one opens receiving tunnel which gets activated as soon as the file is available for transfer.

Every common kind of file can be transferred and you can even share a folder itself. The app claims to deliver 40 times faster speed than Bluetooth which is conventionally super fast. The only thing you may find as an issue is that the app doesn’t work all the time, due to certain limitations on the compatibility ground.
In short, SHAREit delivers one of the secured ways of the file transfer. Because of the secured tunnel, you can rely on it for sharing a personal or highly protected file. Also, the app is regularly updated with fresh security and performance patches.
A Windows computer with 4GB RAM, 5-10GB free storage in C drive and HD standard of the graphic driver is recommended. But, the app even works in a system with 2GB RAM. When it comes to Mac, 4GB RAM is the minimum and it is also recommended that the hardware isn’t older than 2013.
If you think your system is compatible with these requirements, then you are ready to move ahead with the installation procedure. I just hope you found compatibility on the 100% mark and ready to march.
