Christmas Giveaway Day 14: Upload Robots

No matter what type of work you do online, everyone enjoys a savvy file upload and sharing tool. It’s part of why Dropbox has garnered so much love in the past year. Another tool in this genre, Upload Robots, also gives the same great service. And with the updates they’ve got coming down the pipe early 2010, the brains behind this file sharing application are positioning themselves to be a serious competitor to Dropbox.

Today we’re giving away 5 Pro licenses to Upload Robots — meaning there will be five lucky winners who will get a first hand look at how this service works and how this app will improve over the coming months.


Update: It appears that a lot of people like the look of this tool. And for good reason! Here are today’s lucky five winners:

  • Guario
  • Dodie
  • Robin Lundgren
  • webbografico
  • Alvin

Congratulations to each of you.

About Upload Robots

Billed as your online thumb drive, Upload Robots is available for anyone to use. You can upload a file, use the assigned URL and share the file with friends and colleagues. But for those with more permanent needs, you can sign up for an account and manage a directory of your files on the service.

And the developers of this tool made sure that performance was a key feature of this application. And did a good job of it — Upload Robots is fast!

Our Look/Review at Upload Robots

We reviewed this tool earlier this year. I came away impressed, especially in regards to the look and performance of the tool.

This tool is more than just a sexy name. It also sports a gorgeous interface that also works well — that is to say, the usability factor is high.

And without giving too much away, I’ll say that this tool will soon be blurring the line between the web and the desktop. And here’s your chance to be on the line

How to Enter

It’s Monday, so I’ll keep this one simple. Just leave a comment and mention why you’d like to win this prize. The winners will be announced at the end of the day!

And Over at Mac.AppStorm: Pixelmator

Don’t forget to check out what’s going on over at Mac.AppStorm! Today they’re giving away a few copies of Pixelmator.

Pixelmator is an OS X only image editing tool designed with speed, simplicity and a great user interface in mind. It lacks the raw power of Photoshop, but provides a great, flexible tool for graphics editing and photo manipulation. After using it for a few weeks, I decided to make the switch for most of my graphic editing work. It’s quick, simple and definitely worth trying out.
