Developed by FeePerfect, Feem allows sharing of pictures, videso and documents among WiFi buddies such as family, friends, co-workers and just anyone you are sharing your WiFi network with. This kills emailing, Bluetooth, USB cable transfers and just any other peer-to-peer sharing app out there.
“No fumbling for a special cable, no hunting for a USB stick (won’t work for mobile), or impatiently waiting for iTunes or Zune to fire up. And you don’t burn up precious wireless bandwidth. Just run Feem (on sender & receiver), choose files to share, select who gets them, click Upload,” the firm writes on their app’s profile page.
Users can as well choose a chat buddy, and open a session to share with the buddies of choice. Feem works phone-to-phone, phone-to-computer and does not discriminate whether you are on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, Mac, Windows, Linux and on a Windows Phone 8 devices.
Insanely, Feem doesn’t require an active Internet but the firm says the devices MUST be connected to the same WiFi router or hotspot to work.
The firm says Feem sends files instantly from one device to another without passing through the Internet and the files are safer with them as no one can have access to them unlike other file sharing services. Feem promises can send unlimited number of files, any time, any size, to any of your devices, instantly and for free.
