AirDrop File Transfer

This tutorial will show how to use the AirDrop tool on your Apple computer running Mt. Lion (10.8). When using this service, remember:
  • AirDrop is designed to work with users who are on the same network.
  • Both users need to be in relatively close proximity in order to see one another; think Bluetooth distances.
  • Both users must be in their respective AirDrop folders in order to see one another. 
  • AirDrop will transfer between like devices only (i.e. iPad-2-iPad or MacBook-2-MacBook)
