WeTransfer’s mobile app to collect and share ideas now available on Android
Previously only on iOS, the new WeTransfer mobile app for transferring files and more is now available in the Google Play Store.
WeTransfer is extending its set of tools today with the availability of a new app for Android — a simple way for users to share, save and organize ideas.
On top of sending photos and videos, users can now save links, article, music and more straight from their favorite apps. Items can be shared instantly using WeTransfer or collected and organized onto visual boards.
In addition to the standard WeTransfer functionality (sending large files with a simple link or email), the new app enables items and boards to be shared directly into a variety of other channels including Slack and WhatsApp.
By introducing the concept of boards, the WeTransfer app aims to make the sending and receiving of visual and more varied content easier for everyone — whether it’s a project storyboard, a business venture or a simply an ongoing collection of inspiration and ideas.
Samuel Beek, Product Manager Mobile, comments:
“At WeTransfer we’re all about enabling people to share their creative ideas in the most effortless way possible. With the WeTransfer app, it’s easy to collect and share different file types, facilitating a much smoother workflow on mobile.We released our iOS app last year and it’s already hit three million monthly active users, so the progression to release on Android was natural. We’re super excited to deliver the updated functionality to this market and can’t wait to see what they create.”
Gordon Willoughby, CEO of WeTransfer, comments:
"The release of the mobile app for all platforms marks a new milestone for WeTransfer, as the company evolves from a simple file-sharing service to providing a wider set of tools for creative minds; from getting inspiration on our editorial platform WePresent, to collecting and organizing ideas on your mobile phone, to sharing the final work via WeTransfer.”

WeTransfer makes tools to move ideas. Founded in 2009 in Amsterdam as a simple, well-designed file sharing service for the creative community, WeTransfer has grown to include tools that scale across the creative spectrum, including editorial platform WePresent (with 2M monthly readers), mobile app 'Collect by WeTransfer' (with 4M monthly users), quick slide-making tool Paste® (with 40,000 active teams), immersive sketching tool Paper® (with more than 25M downloads), and the original web platform with 50M monthly users and over a billion files sent each month.
From the beginning, WeTransfer has prioritized bringing “offline” values - trust, transparency, and ethics - online. This means having a responsible data policy and tools that don’t distract people from their creative flow. WeTransfer has pioneered a new means of online advertising, resulting in the platform’s full-page wallpapers, designed by our award-winning in-house creative studio. Advertisers include industry-leading brands like Apple, Saint Laurent, Google, Balenciaga, Samsung, Netflix, Adidas, and Squarespace.
Since its founding, WeTransfer has proudly supported the creative communities and given up to 30% of advertising space to support the arts, donating over 5 billion impressions in 2017. Through our ongoing advertising grant program and content platform, WePresent, we have partnered with hundreds of groundbreaking artists and organizations, including Björk, King Krule, FKA twigs, Ryan McGinley, Ami Vitale, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the UN Development Program, the World Wildlife Foundation and the Prince Estate. In 2016, WeTransfer launched the world’s first free Masters of the Arts in design thinking with the University of the Underground and Worldwide FM, the global radio station run by legendary BBC DJ Gilles Peterson.
Following a $25 million investment from Highland Europe in 2015, WeTransfer opened a US office in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, to add to the Amsterdam headquarters. In 2018, WeTransfer acquired popular creative apps Paper® and Paste® and expanded its US presence to Seattle and New York City.
