Files Go basically a combination of File transfer application, File manager application, and Cleanup utility application. You can transfer files through this application even if you are offline. You can share your files like photos, videos, documents, Contacts over Bluetooth. Apple’s Airdrop can do the same. Screenshots suggest that both users will have to open their application at the time of transfer. 

Google already provides a cleanup utility in their Google Photos Application but it is used for photos and videos only. The Files Go application can fill this gap with its cleanup feature where you can clean the application cache, or browse through your folders where files like photos, videos, documents may have accumulated.
