- Ease of use
- Good-looking layout
- Lots of files formats
- Original file sharing system
- Free version maximum 1MB file size (5MB during trial)
- Range should be widen (just 2 meters)
It's true that there lots of different sharing file systems: WiFi, Bluetooht, GPS, 3G, e-mail, IP... each of them fit in a situation. SonicShare doesn't use any of these system and it's really useful when you want to share files with friends who are close to you.
It uses radio waves through the speaker to send files, so your friends must be close to you (2 meters at most). Of course, the app installed in all the devices is required. You can send contact, app (.apk), URL, SMS, sdcard files, pictures, music, videos, clipboard, bookmark... and many other type of files. One of its strongest points is the 1-to-many transfer, that allows you to send a file to multiple receivers at once.
The app is set in a simple but cute interface: hand-drawn like interface with icons grid of files type. It's really easy to use: just select file format, choose the file you want to send, select and press send. Make sure the receiving devices have also opened the sonic apps.
The main flaw: free version just allows you to send files of maximum 1MB (5MB during the trial). If you find the app useful, you'll need to upgrade to other version, depending on your needs: SonicSuper (20MB files) or SonicUltra (50MB files). Highly recommendable.
SonicShare is a new way to send files. You do not need the wifi tethering, bluetooth, gps, nor input any ip, cloud link, email address, tel, id, nor select the names from a long contact list (but finally found that he is not in your list :P) In order to achieve a file transfer, the only thing you need is your friends are nearby you, both open this app, select the file/item, and click the SEND button. The file will be passed to your friends' devices. Simple enough?
You can send any kinds of file. jpg, mp3, wmv, mp4, txt, xls, pdf, apk .... no format limitation. Besides the files, by using the interface provides by this app, you can also send URL, sms text, contact, android apps (apk), app market link, clipboard content, your predefined name card, web history, ... This app also supports 1-to-many transfer, which means if you want to share a file to 10 friends, you just send once, then all your friends will receive the sent file in a few minutes. Interesting?
BTW, why do not use Bluetooth? Yes, bluetooth does the same thing. But it requires many approval steps and some compatibility problems between devices. Do you have any bad experience in sending files via bluetooth but fail finally after tons of annoying steps? I have many. :P

*** Tested in some tabs which without telephony function. It can send signal but cannot receive. I found that their microphone cannot detect frequency higher than 16000 Hz. Sorry to say that this app cannot support those hardwares.
Recently changed in this version:

Easy to share
This app wants my unique identifier and my phone number uhh I don't think so. How ridiculous is this getting all these developers want all your personal for any little app these days. Sorry not getting mine. Shame it was a good idea.
are you using ultrasonic? what a great idea
i share a file from another file explorer, it works as describe.
I cannot use this on my tablet, so I assume it is not ICS friendly even though it says "Android 2.1 and up". Can only use on my phone but would be nice to be able to do phone to tablet or vice versa. Also, you uploading files to the server and claiming to
