AirDrop - Drop Everything

What is it?

AirDrop is an Wi-Fi ad-hoc service owned by Apple to transfer files between their devices without need of storage drives and special router configuration.

Why is it?

You need a mass storage device to transfer huge files from different PCs without LAN network connectivity. So Apple introduced a service to enable the users, to turn their existing device as a network router and send the files through WiFi. Through Bluetooth also we can do file transfer, but the data transfer rate is much lower than this.
