2015. BitTorrent released an app for sharing photos between platforms

BitTorrent, the popular peer-to-peer file sharing service launched an app called BitTorrent Shoot, focused completely on sharing photos between platforms. So an iPhone can send photos to an Android phone or to a Windows phone (or vice versa,) instantly and easily, according to VentureBeat. It does this by taking an unconventional approach to file sharing. Instead of uploading the images to the cloud, the files are shared directly between devices. The receiving phone scans a QR code generated on the phone that's about to transfer the files. Because files are shared directly, even larger transfers should download quickly. The app is free, but after you share your third batch of photos, there will be a one-time $2 charge to keep sending more. Only the sender will be charged, it'll be free for the person on the receiving end.

2014. BitTorrent to unveil Pro version of its file sync service

BitTorrent is taking the wraps off the next phase of its strategy to turn its peer-to-peer file sharing network into a revenue-generating business, and compete more squarely against cloud-based services like Dropbox. In 2015, it will introduce the Pro version of its file-sync product called Sync for $39.99/year. And, expanding on some of the file-sending functionality of Sync, BitTorrent will introduce a new mobile app focused specifically on large files. As point of price comparison, BitTorrent says services from Dropbox, Microsoft and Google that are comparable to Sync cost from $83.99/year and up.
