There are plethora of cloud storage and file sharing services. Some of them have gained popularity over time, for example, Dropbox, Box, SugarSync, and the recent addition being the Google Drive. It seems every one wants to try their hands at running a file storage service.
Among all these services/sites, here comes one more way to share files – Jumpshare. This service is termed as a “new, faster way to share files with your friends, family, and co-workers”.
Jumpshare lets you upload files online, but that’s not all, you can also view more than 150 file formats online, which includes photos, videos, documents, presentations, code, and many other file types.
Jumpshare is free, and users can upload an unlimited amount of files, but the files shouldn’t exceed 2GB. Maximum size of each file should not be over 100MB.
Head over to the site and click on the big button “Select files to share” to start uploading your files, or you can also simply drag and drop files to upload. Once the upload process starts, you can instantly share files with the help of the direct link, or you can also share files on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. You don’t need to wait for the upload process to complete, and the recipient whom you share the file with will be able to download the file once your upload completes.
Currently, all files are available for only 14 days, after which the files are automatically deleted. For now, the service doesn’t offer any user accounts but the FAQ page says that they are working on launching user accounts. The service relies on Amazon AWS hosting and uses Amazon S3 for data storage, which means everything is encrypted to prevent unauthorized access.
Jumpshare surely seems to be a new painless way to quickly share files online. The recipient not only can download the file, but can also view it online, thanks to its built-in file viewer. Go, give it a try and let us know what you think about it.
