There?s a multitude of applications on Google Play that tries to give us solutions for easily sharing links to other people?s devices. But if you want both an easy and quick way to do it, without requiring the recipient to install or sign in to anything, try the CaastMe Android app.

Fastest way to share links

CaastMe is brought to us by a developer and XDA forum member named ?Wyemun.? He talked about it in this forum thread and provided some screengrabs (see below) that show its user-friendly interface. The dev mentioned that this app has been inspired by how WhatsApp and WeChat utilize QR codes to allow users to quickly sign in to their accounts. He then tried to repurpose that functionality and apply the same method into sharing hyperlinks to PC and mobile browsers.
