file sharing

From email attachments to images you want to share on Twitter, files can still be frustrating to share. There’s dozens of file sharing apps, ranging from semi-shady sites covered in ads to popular desktop tools like Cloud.app that let you upload files and share them with a stylish landing page. Either way, most require you to create an account first, and almost all take several steps to share files.

Castle.so is one of the newer web apps for sharing files, and its reduced the process to two steps: drag a file to your browser, and share the link to your new Castle.so share page. That’s it. It’s a great implementation of HTML5 file support, and takes a couple steps out of sharing files.

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.

These days we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to online file storage/sharing solutions. There’s something to suit every user’s needs, from a photographer sharing an occasional image online (CloudApp) to the design studio sending across large files to their printing facility (YouSendIt), to the startup company road warrior who needs all his files in sync wherever he goes (Dropbox). It’s great that we have so many options but it’s also overwhelming at times.

Fluxiom aims to be the choice for professionals who need to store large files of a variety of types, be able to find and organize them easily, and quickly share them. It also allows users to receive files securely and makes sure they’re all in order. Is it right for you? Let’s take a peek and find out.

When it comes to putting files in the cloud, the most important aspect for me is accessibility. Here in the AppStorm network, we’ve already covered CloudApp for Mac, and DroidCloud, a third party app that brings CloudApp to Android devices. I think it’s about time we cover the web interface for CloudApp, a dead simple way to put files in the cloud.

There are tons of online storage options out there: Dropbox is my personal favorite, but there’s also Windows Skydrive, Mozy and more. Last week, Amazon entered the game with their new service, Amazon Cloud Drive. I’ll tell you why Amazon is making a strong case for file storage in the Cloud and giving other services a run for their money.

While visiting my apartment leasing office, I was randomly asked if I knew anything about computers. This question is always an interesting one as it tends to go in so many different directions. The issue at hand involved sending a ~90MB video to the corporate office of the leasing agent. While this may seem simple to many of us, it’s a more complicated task for many others.

I took the opportunity to give drop.io a quick real-world test and attempt to answer the leasing reps completely unexpected question. The result was flawless and the leasing office employees were incredibly thankful.

Today’s how-to shows how drop.io takes the complexity out of file sharing and collaboration for people at any skill level to use, along with many other collaboration tasks.
