    Default Have you used Airdrop yet?

    To get the popularity of AirDrop, I just wanted to ask if anyone has used it, and does it work? Is it reliable?

    I haven't used it yet, but have seen others using this feature and they weren't having any problems at all.

    I mainly use it to send items to/from my own iPad and iPhone, and it's worked great so far. The occasional sending of pics to Wifey's iPad is fun as well.

    I used it twice to send pics and it worked pretty fast. I can't wait for the ability to use this feature with a Mac.

    To get it to work right it's all about settings. You either need to be all connected to same WiFi or my preference be in close proximity and have everyone turn on Bluetooth. Used it last night for Halloween. Took a ton of with my friends and our kids. Instead of texting the pics, we all turned on Airdrop and Bluetooth and I dropped about 40 photos on 12 phones in seconds. It also works great for documents in meetings, and exchanging contact info

    I've tried to use it but it never worked for me. That was before iOS 7 official released though.

    2 or 3 times only so far. Quite reliable, though it seemed to take a while to locate my friend who was sitting right beside me (or at least, longer than it should).

    I use it all the time. My family has iPhones, iPads and iPods. We send each other photos and files all the time. It's flawless. You just have to make sure the device you are sending to is awake to see it.

    Default Re: Have you used Airdrop yet?

    I see that everyone is saying that airdrop is working for them! For some reason, it doesn't work for me. iPhones around me have it turned on as do I, yet they don't show up when I try to send them something. It's probably something simple, so any help is appreciated.

    Thanks guys and gals

    All the devices have to be connected to the same wifi router and have Bluetooth on and you have to have airdrop set to everyone.
