OS X’s built-in AirDrop file transfer tool is easy and free.
DropCopy adds a bunch of useful features including messages and clipboard contents. It’s very good and inexpensive.
What if you don’t like all the steps in sending files via AirDrop, and you want more features for free? Try Any Send, the little Mac app that sends files Mac to Mac.
Nothing is easier. Nothing is cheaper.
How Any Send works is pretty darn simple. Copy anything on your Mac. Files, photos, audio clip, movie clip.
Select who to send the file to on your home or office network. Woosh. Done.
Files are sent as fast as your Mac’s network connection allows. There’s no file size limitation (whatever you can copy), so you can send movies, contacts, documents, PDFs, photos, and pretty much whatever.
Any Send handles folders with files, and sends notifications to OS X Mountain Lion’s Notification Center. You can change the Mac’s name in Preferences. The recipient gets a pop up notification. And sending a file invokes a little file movement animation.
I don’t know why the app is free but I’m not going to argue about it.
