Xender is a utility app for the Android phone. It allows files to be transferred between two Android devices, using NFC, or near-field communication. This allows for the speedy transfer of files, and often at much faster rates than what you would get over Bluetooth or WiFi. If you need to quickly transfer files between two Android devices, this is a fantastic app that can save you a ton of time. 

Xender works by allowing users who are close to each other to quickly send files back and forth. You can send files to up to five devices at the same time, so if you need to send files to numerous devices, Xender has you covered. Keep in mind that near-field communication only works if users are near each other, so you have to make sure you are close together.

Once the file transfer process starts, there's nothing you need to do, and that's arguably one of the best parts of Xender: It can send files exceptionally quickly and there is no additional action needed on your part. This also works with almost any type of file, be it a song, app, or game.

Users of the app noted that the app is exceptionally efficient. Xender has no content restrictions, so it doesn't matter if you are using the app for work or play, you can effectively and quickly send files back and forth. Furthermore, since the app uses near-field communication, you don't have to worry about the network security of a WiFi network, or using your data plan. 

It's also worth noting that the app is wildly popular. According to the Google Play store, it has almost three million downloads, making it an exceptionally popular utility app. The app's Google Play description brags that it has over 500 million users and transfers more than 200 million files on a daily basis. This is obviously a huge number, and it essentially means that Xender is the industry standard for near-field communication transfers. 

The app's flexibility is also worth mentioning. It works over any Android device but also brags cross-platform support, including with Windows devices. This dramatically increases the number of devices to which you can send files. 

However, Xender doesn't just stop there. The app now offers a Game Center, allowing users to play hundreds of games, and you never even have to install these games - you can just play them, straight from the app! Furthermore, the app recently created a feature that allows users to convert video files into MP3 audio files. Last, it now has a "social media center," allowing you to save videos that you see on social media, including from Whatsapp, Instagram, or Facebook. This makes Xender more than just a utility for file transfers. 

It is also worth noting that the app is not only popular but clearly supported by the developers. Developers continue to unroll new features and bug fixes. They are also actively engaged in responding to customer questions or concerns in the Google Play center, making it clear that they value their customer's experience and feedback.
