We send lots of files and used various different platforms. They are work well, but just didn’t do what we wanted all of the time. We wanted a platform that was FREE, but also allowed us option extras for Large File Transfers with no future commitment.
We are a small company, weheartdigital Ltd is focused on building great digital products for great clients. You can check us out on www.weheart.digital
Shiift.io is a great way to send files to people. Its easy, quick and safe. Your files are sent as a zip, and the link to them expires after your agreed time period. If you want to send video, photos or legal documents, Shiift.io is the platform to use. We know there are lots of companies out there doing this, WeTransfer being the main one, but we think our is the best and we will NEVER ask for a subscription!
How do you do it?
Just drag and drop anywhere on the page or click to add files. The recipient of the file transfer can choose to download one or all of them. We automatically compress them in to one zip for ease. When the file is downloaded, you will get notified, and when it’s no longer available, we will let you know, and tell you how many times each file was sent.
We also provide a URL to the files for you to share if needed.
In the Future
We will be allowing you to extend your URLs and prompt you to say so, before they expire!
We will be creating an API and supplying some lovely code so you can add transfers into your own products and sites.
If you have any thoughts about better ideas, just ping us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
