DropShare takes the pain out of file sharing

Probably the quickest and easiest way to share files with your friends or co-workers is to email them. Just attach a picture or a document to an email message and push the button. Unless you've got a large file.

Many email systems have limits on the size or number of attachments that they'll support. And of course if your recipient has a slower connection, it means that the day you send the big attachment is the day that they'll remember taking way too long to download their email. You could use an FTP server, but that can be a pain in the neck.

DropShare is an easy way to share your files: there's no configuration necessary. Install the app, drag and drop the file you want to share onto the icon, grab the resulting URL, and email or IM that web address to your recipient. Instant download. You can move individual files, or even whole folders. And you can even see when your recipient has downloaded the files.

DropShare is a Mac app, and requires OS X 10.4 or later. The publisher promises a Windows version soon.

    PLEASE feature this program again, when it’s made available for windows! This is one of the few applications from this site I thought to be SUPER useful, and I wanted to download it, quite a bit.
