If the phone didn't have the technology and a 3rd party app steps in to better the phone, that's fine with me. But the iPhone does have that technology, it's just that Apple decided to lock the file transferring capability of bluetooth in order to force its users to continue to use iTunes as the only way to transfer files.
You shouldn't have to. Locking down the bluetooth is a weakness of the iPhone. It'll be interesting to see what they do if bluetooth becomes the mainstream NFC solution.
Dropbox is a good way of transferring files, and is available on both iOS and Android. I felt it worth a mention.
