Let me be the first to say it in case you felt the same way, Airdrop sucks balls every so often. It’s faulty and it isn’t reliable. It’s great when it works but it’s such a pain when it doesn’t. And boy does it falter quite often.
I sometimes take countless minutes trying to detect my other devices via Airdrop when it should be practically instantaneous. Sometimes, sending files via email end up being faster, albeit more tedious.
In my quest to search for faster (and more reliable) means to transfer files from one device to another, I stumbled upon a really nifty gadget.
It’s called the PhotoFast i-FlashDrive HD.
