If you are using an iPhone device, you would quiet agree with me that the iOS operating system is very selfish.
Yes! Very selfish and expensive too.
How do i mean selfish?
Out of the box, you cannot send files from an android phone to an iPhone or iPad using Bluetooth. Not just from an android, but from every other device except the iOS device.
Same applies to downloading. When using an iPhone or iPad device, you cannot download music files or video files online, you can only watch them online.
Discovered: How To Download Songs and Videos On iPhone
When it comes to music, if downloading from iTunes, you’d have to buy most of the songs online.
Why would i have to pay for a song when i can simply download them online for free? Well, technically, you can simply bypass buying music files by using the iTunes software on a computer.
Remember the iWatch? The iWatch is more or less useless without an iPhone to work with.
More reason why i said the OS is just plain selfish. Fine, you can send files from an iPhone to another iPhone or iOS device but what happens to cross-platform?
Their excuse is basically security issues but so far so good, how many have actually faced security issues with their android phone or Blackberry OS?
I quite understand that you can jailbreak your iPhone and bypass those restrictions but I am sure you wouldn’t want to follow any process that may break your iPhone if anything goes wrong considering the price iOS devices are being sold for.

Although being able to send files from android OS to iPhone using the xender app is cool and quite encouraging, there are still some limitations.
The music files cannot be played directly from the default music app on the iPhone. Instead, they can only be played from the xender application and same applies to video files.
Picture files on the other hand, works great! They can be accessed from the photos folder directly which sounds pretty cool.
