Similar to Bump but without that bodycheck. Android will follow. Link to the Mac compagnion app below. Published one week ago. Free for the first time. Tested with MBPr, iPad 4 and iPhone 4 + 5: Works as expected. Super simple. Should work with iPhone 3GS or younger (iOS 5.1). Cool: Autodestruct feature (menu: tap the file you want to broadcast/flick in the canvas). Recommended!








Link to Mac app (Mac App Store):

Windows & Linux apps (all permanently free). Links at the dev's website:

I dunno. This looks like it might be something that will be superseded by "AirDrop" in iOS 7. It might be worth a look, though. At least until iOS 7 becomes publicly available.

Yes but Bump and Flick support other systems than iOS 7 only. iOS 5.1 or newer (Flick), Macs, PCs (Windows, Linux) and Android phones (Flick "soon"). And the funny feature Auto Destruct (must see!) offers Flick only.

AirDrop only supports the latest generation of devices - so no my iPhone 4S or my iPad 3.

It's very nice to use - but I really wish it could work without a Wifi network.

It works with Bluetooth as well. Quote from their website:

With Flick for iOS, OSX, Windows and Android you can share photos, contacts, notes and more over wireless or Bluetooth both within and across platforms. Simply select the file you want to share and flick it to someone else running the app. From within other apps use the “open in” or “share” functions and you can flick Pages, Numbers, Keynote, PDF files and so much more. Hassle free sharing at its best!
