file hosting

Another day, another file sharing app, or so it seems. We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to services for sending files big and small over the web, and while it may seem like overkill, the truth is that today’s users are diverse in their usage habits and requirements, and a one-size-fits-all approach just doesn’t work in this context. So who is Shared good for?

Shared doesn’t bother with apps for multiple platforms or syncing files across devices: instead, it offers a cheap, easy-to-use web-based file sharing solution that works on desktops and mobile devices and is perfect for novice users and advanced file sharers who are tired of bloated apps with features they don’t use. Plus, you can get started with 100GB of space for free! Sound too good to be true? Let’s send some files across the interwebs and see if Shared is indeed all it’s cracked up to be.


We briefly covered a few months ago when it was basically a ‘single-purpose’ app: you could upload pictures to instantly create a simple gallery that you could share with anyone. Since then, the app has been under heavy development and now has a boatload of features designed to improve the image-sharing experience and allow for other kinds of files as well.

There’s a lot of new stuff under the hood, so much so that we thought we should take another look at it. now works not just as a web app, but also as an app for desktop and mobile platforms. The galleries and editing options have been streamlined and several issues have been ironed out, making for a smoother user experience. Let’s delve deeper now, shall we?


Over the past few months I’ve realized that I don’t have a go-to site or app for sharing large files online. That’s probably because most of the popular services currently available are either slow, clunky or just forgettable. Most of them don’t allow users to keep track of what happened to their files, re-send download links or check if they were downloaded.

Where do you go when you need all these features and more? Enter UploadingIt.

UploadingIt presents a no-fuss solution to getting your files online, and makes it easy to share them. There are advanced sharing options, too, and there’s no learning curve. It includes everything you need, and nothing you don’t. Let’s take a closer look and see if UploadingIt is the file-sharing app for you.
