BitTorrent has released a new app called Shoot that harkens back to the company's file-sharing roots, offering users a way to easily share multiple video and picture files with one another through a simple QR code.
One of the big draws behind Shoot is that it is available for and works across all three major mobile platforms. Android, iOS, and Windows Phone users can all download the app and quickly share files with one another across devices. On the backend, Shoot works off of BitTorrent's Sync technology, which allows users to transfer files without size limits and, more importantly, securely without the need for accounts or going through the cloud.
We can definitely see lots of use-cases for this. The compatibility with all three major mobile platforms combined with the privacy inherent in direct transfers is sure to be a boon for those looking to share those recent vacation pictures and videos with family and friends. The only barrier to entry seems to be getting everyone on board with the app. BitTorrent notes that your first 3 sends are free, but you'll have to pay out a one-time fee of $1.99 to send more after that. One bonus, however, is that it's always free for the person receiving the files.
If you'd like to check out BitTorrent Shoot and test it out for yourself, you can grab it from the Windows Phone Store at the link below.
