How to Use Airdrop

AirDrop is one of the new features on our MLTI MacBook Airs that we were issued this fall. It certainly got a lot of you excited during our opening Apple talk on the first day. One question that was asked afterwards was how you find people in what was becoming a very long list as others were opening AirDrop. As far as I can tell (and I've been search, as time allows, since then), there is no way to search or sort the list. It wasn't intended to have so many users with AirDrop running at a time that you would need to sort or find someone in such a length list. Because you only show up on the AirDrop network once you have opened the link in your finder window. So, if you were going to transfer a file to someone, you'd more than likely only have that one person visible in your AirDrop since they would have it open to be ready to accept your file. Does that make sense?

For those of you who want to take a look at AirDrop again, here is a YouTube video I found that shows you how easy it is to use. I'll also be putting it in my LiveBinder for future reference (which is what I do with all of my "how to" posts).

Happy Friday, everyone!
