Overall Opinion: I would add this to other reviews: the official Superbeam site is not https but is http only. My laptop sees this as being an insecure site and will not let me download the software on Windows. I consider it unwise to use any third-party downloading site even although I could uninstall everything that was downloaded. However, I would not know what had been added to the downloaded software itself.

Pros: -

My Opinion on SuperBeam

Overall Opinion: I found SuperBeam very helpful. Pugging in chords or flash drives and trying to navigate through complex computer screens in hope of finding the right files to transfer has long been a thorn in the sides of many people. SuperBeam eliminates the problem altogether by using alternative methods to transfer files. The QR reader is very helpful for smaller downloads because it does not take long to open up and use. NFC is another effective method. However, because the app uses wifi to transfer files, your speeds are always at the mercy of your internet connection. If you boast a strong internet connection, downloading and transferring files should be no problem, but if you do not have a very strong internet connection, the transfer can have problems and can even drop the task altogether. The website suggests that if you have problems like this you should turn your wifi off and back on again and see if it works, but most people generally find that this approach has mixed results. That said, when the app is working well, which is most of the time, it is very helpful. Its transfer rates are largely dependent on your internet connection, but they are usually very good. High end devices often operate with a transfer rate of around 75 Mpbs. The pro version of the app is ad free and has several unique features that make it worth trying out. The pro version is the only version that allows transfers between mobile devices and laptops.

Pros: Using SuperBeam is faster than more traditional forms of file sharing. The process of going about making transfers is also much simpler and easier to understand for people who may not be as technologically inclined. The transfer speeds of SuperBeam can be very good if you have a strong wifi connection. The app uses three different forms of transfer, so if one of them does not work or is not a feature of one of your devices, you can use one of the others to get the job done.
