Android users enjoy unrestricted Bluetooth file sharing, and this, at times, tends to make iOS users a little jealous. If you come to think of it, most of us use peer-to-peer file sharing for sending music and videos to each other. While you can’t do this on your iPhone, there are apps which are almost as good and easy to use as plain-old Bluetooth file sharing. Sprd the Note is certainly not the only app of its kind, but it does have some pretty cool features. Basically, the app is all about sharing songs with iPhone users who are in your vicinity, given that they are on the same Wi-Fi network as you are, and have Sprd the Note installed.
Using Sprd the Note, you can share two things; music in your iPhone or iPod Touch’s library, and recordings that you create using the app. At start up, you will be guided through a brief graphical tutorial, telling you how to use the app. Before you can share a song, you have to import it to Sprd the Note’s internal library. This can be done by tapping the ‘+’ button in the top left corner of the app’s home screen. You can import only one song at a time, and the sharing rate is the same as well. You can sort the imported song lists alphabetically, or according to the date the track was added to the app. If you want, you can use Sprd the Note as a sound recorder as well. When you have recorded a clip, it will be automatically added to the app’s library, and you can share it just the way you can share a song.
When you have your app library filled up, you can start sharing songs. To do that, you get two options. If the iOS user you want to share the song with is near you, and on the same Wi-Fi network, then the i To i option is for you. Choosing this option will display a list of nearby Sprd the Note users, given that they have the app running at that time on their device. At first glance, you might feel that there is no way of rejecting an incoming song, but that’s not the case. While the song is being received, you have to tap the small cross button to decline the offer to receive that song. If the person you want to share the song with is not nearby, you can simply email the file to them via Sprd the Note.
The app is free for a very limited time, so hurry up and you might be able to save a few bucks.
