ShareDrop allows you to transfer files directly between devices, without having to upload them to any server first. It uses WebRTC for secure peer-to-peer file transfer and Firebase for presence management and WebRTC signaling.
At the moment ShareDrop allows you to send files only to other devices in the same local network, i.e. devices with the same public IP address.
The main difference between ShareDrop and AirDrop is that ShareDrop requires internet connection to find devices, while AirDrop doesn't need one - it creates ad-hoc wireless network between them. On the other hand, ShareDrop allows you to send files between mobile (Android) and desktop devices.

Well, it’s true. We did our own forensics a few months back and determined that Mayday is completely WebRTC-based, using the Chrome WebRTC stack, the G.711 audio codec, and most likely, the VP8 video codec. There are a number of hints in the Wireshark trace that give this away, even though the media is encrypted with SDES-SRTP; we are pretty sure the video is VP8 because the observed packetization exactly matches how WebRTC handles VP8.
Overall Mayday is a great WebRTC app; my only complaint is the use of the G.711 codec results in quite poor-quality audio for a modern app. Here’s hoping Mayday starts using the Opus codec soon!
And it is popular. V60, Tesla, Prius, Mitsubishi Highlander, i3 and my Opel. Future is here.
Being prejudiced against gay and lesbian people today is turning out to be a bit like being prejudiced against black people in the 1950s. People with those views are simply on the wrong side of history, and companies don't want executives distracting their staff or customers with views that, increasingly, seem extreme and mean-spirited, even if they are private.
