Jumpshare 2.0 – File Sharing Reimagined, The Best Has Just Arrived!

Three years ago we set out to create the best file sharing service out there, and today we’re thrilled to introduce the next chapter of Jumpshare. Jumpshare 2.0 is our biggest release ever! It comes with a brand new interface that we’re very excited about along with the many new features we’ve added to help organize and access shared files more efficiently. Here are some of the best features:

A Fresh New Look

The first thing you will notice is a cleaner look that features larger thumbnails and improved navigation. We’ve brought important pages like the Activity page and the My Uploads page to the forefront and added a new page called Shared that helps you keep track of all file sharing activity. The new Upload button and navigational header is also much more economical in terms of screen space.

Shared Tab

We’ve added a new tab dedicated to helping you track shared files and folders. View a list of the files you’ve shared complete with details for when and whom you shared the files with, their status, size and message. View the files that others have shared with you and get a historical view of sharing between you and any other contact from the new Shared page. You can also check out the files you’ve scheduled for sharing and edit them before they’re sent out.

Tags

Organization is a major point of focus for us with this new release and to that effect we’ve introduced tags with colored labels for better folder organization. You can add up to three tags per folder. The tag you assign to a folder can be used to find it, and all other folders having the same tag. We’re starting you off with three tags that you can assign to your folders; Work, Family and Friends. Feel free to create more tags to organize your projects.

Rearrange files

You’ll find a new option that lets you rearrange files in any order you want inside a folder, just like you can do it on your desktop. Apart from rearranging your files manually, you can also quickly sort files by name, date and size. Files can also be sorted in ascending or descending order based on name, date and size.

Dark & Light Viewer

We’ve improved the file viewer drastically, it’s more robust, up to ten times faster, and allows you to browse all files inside the viewer. We’ve also given users the choice to set a light or dark theme for the file viewer. You can switch to the light viewer when you share files and it will apply across all file viewers. You now have the ability to choose how you present your files.

Upload Folder

You can now select a folder to upload all files in it. Jumpshare will create a folder of the same name as the one you selected when uploading your files. All files in sub-folders are extracted and added to a single folder that is consistent with our flat folder hierarchy.

Jumpshare for Mac 1.2 Brings Stability, Control, And More Features To Your Desktop

jumpshare mac 1.2

Jumpshare for Mac v1.2 is out! This update adds plenty of new features, brings more stability, and gives users more control over how they share files. This version has been re-built from scratch and we’re excited to tell you about the new features.

Multi-threaded Uploading

Multi-threaded uploading was a part of our web app since late last year and it was what made files upload faster with fewer chances of failed uploads. We’ve added this same feature to our new Mac app. When you upload files,  simultaneous connections are established to ensure the files are uploaded faster.

Automatic Email Suggestions

The app now remembers who you have shared files and folders with; as you type in an email address, it suggests emails based on what you type in the address field. It’s also gotten smarter at recognizing email addresses copied to your clipboard. You can copy emails from Outlook, Gmail, etc complete with a contact’s first and last name, and the app will automatically extract the email address from the text copied to your clipboard.

Instant Alerts

We’ve incorporated the new activity alerts into the app. Each time a file is shared with you, a file you shared is viewed or when it’s downloaded, you will receive a notification. The new bell icon which is replacing the old graph one will show a number badge that  corresponds to the number of new activity alerts received.

Upload from Clipboard

We’ve added a new option ‘Upload from Clipboard’ that’ll let you quickly upload and share files copied to your clipboard. It also works with text copied to the clipboard. If you’ve copied text and use Upload from Clipboard option, the text is uploaded as a note. A link to the note is copied to your clipboard, ready to be shared.

Upload from Photoshop

The app has been updated to play nice with Photoshop; you can use the hotkey Option+D to upload screenshots directly from Photoshop.

Quickly Toggle Auto-Upload Screenshot

We’ve added a new way to quickly toggle auto-upload of screenshots. Just hold down the Option key and click the Jumpshare icon in the menu bar to turn it On and Off.

Rename items

To rename a file,  right-click it in the app and choose Rename from the context menu. Enter a name and the file will be renamed instantly. If you forget, you can still rename an item after it has been shared. It’s another web feature that we’ve brought to the Mac app.

Customize (Notification Sound, Bar, Icon)

We’ve added customization options for notifications so you can now change the sound of the notification or disable it. The Jumpshare settings and notification bar can be repositioned so that it sits atop the list of recently uploaded files. Lastly, you can choose between the simple black Jumpshare icon for the menu bar or a nice blue one.

Refreshing New Look

We’ve improved the look and feel of the app while preserving the user interface. You will see sharper icons and Open Sans font that adds together to bring you a refreshing new look.

Works Behind Corporate Proxy

If you’re working in a corporate setting and are forced to use a network proxy configuration, the app will automatically detect your corporate proxy using the system’s network configuration and work around it. You’ll be able to share files without causing any disruptions.

Enable or Disable URL Shortener

A new option has been added to the app’s preferences that let you enable/disable the URL Shortener for your account without having to visit the web app.

All Plus Features

Jumpshare Plus users have the most to benefit from this new updated app. All Plus features have been  incorporated inside the app so if you’re a Jumpshare Plus user, you can lock the files, set them to self-destruct, use advanced sharing options and schedule the shares, all from the Mac app.

Lastly, this version comes with a built-in auto updater. If you have the old Mac app installed, you’ll have to grab this version from our website. From next time, your app will update automatically whenever a new version comes out. Happy sharing!

Now Get Direct Link To Images

Final-direct-link

Starting today, you can link directly to an image file without going through the file viewer. Simply add + at the end of the share URL of any image and you’ll get the direct link to it. Direct links have benefits when embedding images in a forum, blog post or a presentation.

The Plus character (+) has to be added at the end of the image’s share URL, adding it at the end of the folder/album URL will not work. If you are using the URL shortener you can add + at the end of the short URL and it will link directly to the image. Click the links below to see it in action!

Now You Can Search Both Files And Folders

Today, we’ve made an improvement to the Filter/Search bar to search folders as well as files. Previously, you could only search for files, but folders play an important role in how we organize our files so it’s natural to search for your files by folder name.

By default, when you search, we will list both folders and files in the search results. If you want to limit search to folders or files only, you can do so by clicking the Filter drop down.

folder search

Select Folders to search folders only, select Files to search files only, or select Everything to search for both folders and files. Other options to filter by file types are still available.
