Earlier this month we covered several apps for sending files online and even asked you which were your favorites – and over half of you said you use Dropbox. While that’s great for sending across files, it’s not the best choice for collaboration, especially if you need a place to discuss the files you’re sharing and what you’re doing with them.
Glassboard wants to be that place – a meeting room where you can share files securely and talk about what you’re working on, without having your privacy invaded. The app allows you to invite friends, colleagues and clients to view and share photos and files in a private environment and is simple to use. Is this the collaboration tool you’ve been looking for? Let’s find out.
So you’ve decided you need a tool to help you share files easily, but can’t quite decide which one. CloudApp and Droplr are the two most popular apps for sharing files from your menubar or directly from the web, but they’re both so similar it can hard to tell which one is the best for you. The both are web apps for sharing files, they both have native apps for sharing simply from Windows and OS X, they both have free account options, and they now both have pro accounts for sharing more files with more features.
Last year, Jarel wrote an in-depth review comparing CloudApp and Droplr, but a lot has changed in the past year. Let’s look at each of these apps features today, including their native Windows and OS X apps, so you can see which app makes the most sense for you.
If you’ve been using the web over the past decade you’ll remember how difficult it used to be to send large files to people online. Either your file’s size wasn’t supported by the service you chose or the upload would time out, leaving you in the lurch. Since then, our ISP bandwidths have increased and so have our file sharing needs. Does an elegant file transfer service exist?
WeTransfer is the answer you’re looking for. This beautiful app has been around since late 2009 and has served over 100 million files since its inception. It allows you to send files up to 2GB in size and offers companies unique branding opportunities. And the best part? It’s free! Let’s go find some of our biggest files and see if WeTransfer can handle them, shall we?
It has been a long time rumor that Google was going to release some kind of cloud stoage product akin to the likes of Dropbox or iCloud. It does make sense, after all; Google was the company that changed email by offering an unprecidented 1GB of storage for email all the way back in 2004- storage that they’ve been increasing steadily ever since. With Google Music, you get a crazy 20GB of space for your music. You can upload documents to Google Docs and store them forever. What about all files? Well last Monday Google officially launched Google Drive.
Before we get started, I’ve got to say that while I am a Google fanboy, I absolutely love Dropbox. I’ve been using it for a long time and have told lots of people about it as it’s definitely the best way to share files and folders. Let’s see how Google Drive stacks up against it.
If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, the first thing you should do is to figure out how best you can use the Internet to run your business. Running an online business can be significantly profitable and economically scalable. It comes with far less capital costs and risks.
Take the case of an ecommerce site vs a brick and mortar business. You could scale the business any which way you want when it’s online. No rental, no advance, very little inventory, a huge geographical area to cover among other perks ensure lesser heartburn. To top it, if you figure out a way to sell digital goods online, the return on investment to risk ratio is way too low and you probably are settled in life for good.
Sellfy is a platform for selling digital products such as design templates, graphics, e-books, photos, music, video and everything else digital. If you have an idea to run your own digital marketplace, you should not miss out what transpires after the fold.
Each year around tax time, I always go through the ritual of cleaning out the file cabinet of the receipts, bills, and other paperwork that I have kept that I no longer need for the following year. My parents always told me to keep two years worth of documents, so I have it down to a science now where each year I am shredding documents from three years ago and always keeping the past two years worth. To be honest, I hate doing this and I have always thought that there has to be a better way.
In my article, I reviewed the Doxie scanner, a tool which I believe will help solve half of the problem. The other half of the problem is that I needed a place to store all of these digitized receipts and documents. Doxo seemed like the right place to do it. The easiest way to explain Doxo in a nutshell is as your digital file cabinet. Let me show you what I am talking about.
Sharing files for business or pleasure over the web has become fairly simple these days, with a ton of hosting services that you can use for free. And as a photographer and designer, I’m always on the lookout for the easiest ways to send across files, collaborate with colleagues, get feedback from clients on work and showcase completed projects. There have been a few blips on the radar, but sadly, they’ve never caught on with me owing to a lack of features or usability.
I recently came across an elegant solution called Dropmark, that looks great and works even better. Dropmark lets you curate collections of files of all sorts, websites, pictures, audio and video from your computer or the web. It’s dead-simple to use not just for you, but for your audience as well. It’s also extremely flexible and is suitable for a variety of uses – let’s check out a few and see if we can stick with Dropmark.
As most of you know that read this site, there is a huge movement toward cloud based computing. With the rise of applications like Evernote and Dropbox, people are starting to put more and more of their documents and media in the cloud. With this rise, comes devices like the Doxie Go scanner that make the transition to the cloud that much easier for people.
For those of you that don’t know, Doxie has been around since 2009.They came out with their first scanner that year and I decided I had to try it out and I liked it, but it still had some quirks. Then fast forward a few years to this January and Doxie introduced the Doxie Go + WIFI. Paul and the team over at Doxie were kind enough to give me a review unit to test out and let me tell you, I have been loving this thing.
The cloud storage market is really heating up right now. Previously we relied on these services to have all our files up-to-date on our home and office computers. Now, smartphones and tablets have drastically increased the need for ways to store and sync files between all our devices. And it’s not just for work anymore – all our music, videos and photos travel with us wherever we go, by the awesome power of the cloud. So where are you keeping your data?
CX might be a choice worth looking into. The service has been around for a while, known previously as Cloud Experience. Having undergone a drastic rebranding and redesign, it now pegs itself as a great place for casual and professional users to store their data in the cloud with a host of features for sharing and collaboration and apps for several desktop/mobile platforms. The redesign and the new offer of lots of free space seemed enticing, so I decided to try it out.
