Default What app are ya'll using to share big files?

Hey gang, just curious what app you guys are using to share big files (videos, etc) directly between mobile devices? If you're not near WiFi, does this mean you always have to eat up your data plan?

I am considering Bittorrent sync.
Currently, I use dropbox. My all media goes directly to dropbox and gets uploaded on wifi. Once I am on machine, I put it in public folder and send the link to anyone I wish.

I use Google Drive for large files. It will sync with all devices automactically. I usually upload them from a computer. I'll have to check the settings to see if I can specify to sync using wifi only with devices.

I've only got one mobile device I use on a regular basis, a phone. To transfer between between laptop and phone, I'm usually using WiFi. If there's no WiFi available can use Bluetooth, or even just put the SD in the laptop and transfer stuff that way. If I'm transferring stuff from phone to another person's mobile device, use Bluetooth. Cloud options like Google Drive, Rapidshare and Dropbox are not available and subject to censoring, unless using a VPN.

I'm beginning to play around with Bittorrent Sync and finding it to be very useful. It's like syncing to your own cloud server.
