There are a multitude of apps available for sharing apps and files. Share-It is one of them.
As for the pros and cons of file sharing, it is not completely illegal unless you are infringing the copyright laws. Colleagues and classmates can benefit from sharing project files they are working together.
Only con that is associated with file sharing is when the file concerned has been downloaded from an untrusted source. It carries a risk of infecting your device with virus or malware.

Firstly, let me tell you that Shareit app is one of the best apps to share files and folders. It can help you transfer very large size files in very less time as in comparison with the time taken to send those files and folders via Bluetooth. I was also using Shareit app in my smartphone but then I came to know about "Xender" which I found better than Shareit. So I started using Xender on my smartphone. It helps me to transfer large size files in very less time. So much time is saved. And it is very helpful. Xender is also crowned as one of the best apps for sharing files and folders.
