Since the official launch of the native Xender app, more apps are being developed specifically for the Tizen OS. This is an indication of the growing popularity of the Tizen OS, especially among the developer community. Samsung has since launched budget friendly Tizen smartphones (Samsung Z1, Z2, Z3 and the current Z4) which are already recording giant strides globally and will probably give Samsung an edge in certain markets over its competitors in the near future.
Samsung has previously partnered with popular file transfer app Xender to produce a native Tizen version of the Xender app that will give users a suitable method to transfer files over short distances. Officially, the Tizen version of Xender app was unveiled on the 8th of May and since then, it has held a firm position among the top three most downloaded mobile apps in the Tizen store. In fact, it recorded over 150,000 downloads in the first few weeks after it was launched.
Peter Jiang, Founder CEO of Xender, said
"We are delighted to partner with Samsung and provide a fast file-transfer solution for Tizen users. With Samsung being a household name in India, Xender also foresees a rub-off effect in its active user-base. This partnership holds great strategic significance for our company and will further strengthen our leadership in the file-transfer field."
Xender sends all types of files, no matter how large without a data connection. It sends files 200 times faster than Bluetooth and it is compatible with cross-platform transfer and file sharing between Tizen, Android, and iOS. Presently, Xender supports over 30 languages, has hundreds of millions of active users monthly and transfers over 150 million files daily.
