About this app

Ubidrop is the simplest way to transfer photos, music and any kind of files across Android, Mac and Windows.

No need for cables, uploading your files to the cloud, or sending files to yourself over email or messaging apps like Whatsapp or Telegram.

Ubidrop transfers your files over your local WiFi network. The files stay secure and you are the only one who can access them.

How does it work?

Files are transferred over your local WiFi network and no personal data is shared via a 3rd party or online. This means that your Mac and your Android need to be on the same Wi-FI to work.

difficult to find nearby devices, unclear connection protocols, unclear connected networks information (it shows food emojis why), can't transfer anything caused by difficulty to pair with android from pc, in this case I'm actually use the same WiFi as instructions

Really great and smooth but what's the catch here for free usage? Is there any limit on file size which can be shared on free version or paid version is only for commercial usage and for personal usage its free?

Hi Ravneet, there is no catch. The Android app is free and you can transfer any size and any kind of file. The Desktop app (Windows or Mac) has a 7 day trial. For those 7 days you can send unlimited files from and to desktop. After 7 days, you can consider purchasing a license to continue using Ubidrop on that desktop. – Alex
