It's the same for me. But in my case I'm on a late 2009 MacBook with 'old' Bluetooth, so for me I think that's the problem. (Not all features are available on 'older' mac's and I guess this is one of them. Very bummed but I'll live!)

Can anyone tell me, why do I have my AirDrop like this:

There is no Everyone option - I can't share to IOS 8...

tnx!
It looks normal to me. Is there supposed to be something special there?

I managed to get it to work, but I don't know exactly how. I tried both sending a image to my Mac, and toggling AirDrop on and off from CC. Now it's working fine.

Also, the phone will only show up in AirDrop if it's not in sleep (I don't know if this is how it always worked because I haven't used AirDrop much before).

Edit: but I don't know why you have no options in Finder.

In the middle of several books.
Should work over wifi as well, I too get nothing shown
Your Mac has to have the right BTLE card, in order to receive Handoff from another BTLE device.

I can handoff fine between my iPhone 5 and iPad Air. However, My MBP late 2011 does not connect with my iPhone or iPad Air, even though it tries for several seconds. If I had the right BTLE card in the Mac I could.

I tried to find a list of supported Mac's online but I guess until Yosemite is realised we won't be able to check online.

Presume 2011 models lack wifi direct then.

iPhone 6 plus and iPad Air work fine together.

Just chiming in that my 2013MBA works fine with Airdrop to my iOS 8 devices.

Haven't put 10.10 on my iMac or 2011MBA yet though, so can't speak to them

But it uses WiFi direct as well
