Droid Splitter as the name suggests, is an Android app that specializes in splitting objects and files on your device. Many a times you are unable to transfer a file through the IM messaging platform and thus can’t send an important file at a crucial time.Droid Splitter

Droid Splitter gives you an option to choose the size of the split file or the big file that you want to make pieces of.

You can split the size by chunk and by size.

All you need to do is choose the source file and the target folder and you’re good to go.

The app consists of a configurable memory buffer that helps you to speed up the splitting process.

Other than that, you can use Droid splitter to reverse split, i.e. consolidate small files into one big file as well and complement it with the configurable memory buffer to speed up the process.

It is advisable to keep the level at maximum for a file above 1GB and minimum for a file below the 10MB mark for better quality splitting.

The best part of Droid Splitter is the use of the split file.

On extracting any part of the split file – be it an image, a music mp3 or mp4 file, the entire file shows up and works flawlessly. This feature is called the one touch file detection mechanism. Overall, Droid Splitter is a slick and nifty Android app for users who frequently love sharing heavy files with their friends, family and co-workers.
