iOS and Android are two different operating systems that work fluidly in their own respective ecosystem. With iOS, you have AirDrop to transfer photos and videos on another iOS device. On the other hand, Android uses Android Beam to send and receive photos from another device. However, it is really cumbersome and annoying to transfer photos from an iOS device to an Android device or vice versa. If you’re someone like me who uses both of these operating systems, there’s an easy way to swipe your photos from one OS to another.
