It is no exaggeration to say that the advent of the smartphone has profoundly changed the way we go about our daily lives. With a simple touch of the screen, we can now easily access and share information. Although smartphones have evolved at a very fast pace, the internet and data transfer architecture has lagged behind. So much so that in countries like India, almost 70% of the people still remain without proper access to the internet.
Some companies, such as Facebook, have recently opted for a strategy that brings the internet to the people. The idea in India – and other developing countries – is to partner with local internet service providers to provide rural areas with hotspots. However, this approach is in its trial phases and has yet to be fully implemented.
While these efforts deserve praise, the approach itself based on the idea that to be “connected” requires everyone to be “online”. That is not entirely true. Many functions that are said to require people to be online – such as chatting, transferring files, music, and videos – can be done “offline” using Zapya.
Zapya has revolutionized the way people can share files, music, and videos using what is known as an offline close proximity network, a feature that allows people within a particular area to connect their smartphone devices using a Wi-Fi hotspot and begin transferring information at lightning speeds.
The launch of Zapya’s version 4.2 will now support Wi-Fi direct, allowing people with certain smartphones to achieve transfer speeds up to 10 Megabytes per second.
