Introducing Version History


Jumpshare is used by thousands of professionals spread across diverse industries to quickly share files and collaborate with their teams and clients. Part of the collaboration process is to take the project from concept to completion. This means making hundreds of revisions to a file before it reaches the final result.

This is why today we’re excited to announce the launch of Version History to help everyone work even better. You can now upload a newer version of the file without breaking the share link. This is a great way to quickly update your work and ask your clients to review it without having to repeatedly share the files.

Replace file

What happens to the older versions of the file once they’re replaced? They are stored for 30 days and can be accessed from a dedicated Version History page. Just right-click your file and choose “Previous Versions” option to view all previous versions of the file.

Version History Jumpshare

Version History shows you the overall progress of your work, helping you check how the process evolved and at what point. It’s handy for when you want to revert to a previous version or reference it. At Jumpshare, our goal is to simplify the workflow as much as possible and Version History is our effort in that direction.

Version History is available starting today on Web, Mac, and Windows apps to all Jumpshare Plus users.

Jumpshare Gets GIF Recording, Version History, macOS Sierra Support & More

jumpshare-osx-final all icons v2

We’re excited to release the next version of Jumpshare v2.2 for Mac to the general public. This release adds support for macOS Sierra and comes with a slew of new features, including GIF Recording, Version History, and new Annotation tools.

GIF Recording

GIF is one of the fastest growing image format that is used virtually everywhere. Now you can save your screen recordings as a GIF. It’s great for creating a quick demonstration of your idea, reporting an issue, and everything else in between.


When you open the screen recording tool, you will find a new “Output” option. The default output is video but you can now change this to GIF. Once the output is changed, just choose the screen area you want to record and click Start to begin recording. Once you stop recording, the GIF is automatically uploaded and a link is copied to your clipboard, ready to be shared.

Version History


You can upload multiple versions of your designs, documents or any other file without breaking the share link. When you upload the same file again, you will be provided with a choice to either replace the older version or create a duplicate. When replacing a file, the newest version you upload will replace the existing one. To check previous versions of the file, right-click it and click “Previous Versions”. You have the option to view and restore any previous version of a file within 30 days.

If you don’t want a dialog to pop-up every time you upload a newer version of the same file, head over to Preferences and from the More tab, under “If file already exists” option, change it from “Always Ask” to either “Replace” or “Duplicate”.

Version History will make you more productive, declutter your dashboard, and help you to work better with your team and clients.

New Annotation Tools


Screenshot Annotation is used by over 95% of our desktop users. Today we’re adding 3 new options in the Screenshot Annotation tool – Highlight, Blur, and Move. Highlight will help you quickly highlight any part of the image without ruining the overall aesthetics of the screenshot. Blur helps you hide sensitive data from the screenshots, such as email IDs, credit card information, and other important information. Lastly, the move tool comes in handy when you draw something and want to re-position the drawing to another area inside the screenshot.

Annotate Any Image, Not Just Screenshots


One of the lesser-known feature of Jumpshare is that you can annotate any image from your computer simply by right-clicking it and selecting “Annotate with Jumpshare” from the Services menu. You can now right-click any image from your Jumpshare account and Annotate it. Once you’ve annotated the image, you can either replace the older image with the new annotated one or create a duplicate image.

Download Files To Your Computer

Before today, if you wanted to download any file from your Jumpshare account, you had to visit the web interface. But now you can simply right-click any file in the Jumpshare window and choose “Download” option to begin downloading. All downloaded files go to your “Downloads” folder by default.

Webcam Recording

When you open Jumpshare, you will find a new tool in the top bar – Webcam. Users can now record their webcam and save it as either video or GIF. Webcam recording is also integrated with screen recording tool. When recording screencasts, you will find a new webcam option next to the click-tracking and audio options. If you want to visually explain something to your clients by recording a screencast and at the same time record yourself, you can now do it seamlessly without using multiple 3rd party tools.

Google Sign-in

Now you can login to Google using one-click. If you’ve enabled 2-factor authentication for Google, it automatically secures your Jumpshare account. Google Login works everywhere, on the Web, Mac, Windows, and iPhone apps.

MacOS Sierra, Sketch 40, and Faster Photoshop Uploads

Apart from adding new features, we’ve made hundreds of changes under the hood to improve performance, add support for the latest versions of Sketch and Photoshop, and add support for macOS Sierra. You can now use Jumpshare Hotkey to quickly share your designs from Sketch 40. We’ve also optimized Photoshop uploads, now when you upload designs using the Jumpshare Hotkey from Photoshop, they will upload 20x faster and the output will be 10x smaller without any loss of quality.

If you already have the Mac app installed, you will get an update automatically. If you don’t have it, we suggest using the button below to download the latest version.

Enable Desktop Notifications: Get Real Time Alerts In Your Web Browser

Every time your shared file is viewed or downloaded by recipients, we notify you via email and send you push notifications to your desktop apps and iPhone app. We also send notifications when any Jumpshare user shares files with you. However, if you’re using the web app, there is no way to get notified in real-time. That changes today!

We’ve now added support for desktop notifications for every major web browser, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE, and others. Once enabled, you will be receive notifications every time there is an activity in your account. Desktop notifications allow to work and respond faster, and helps you make Jumpshare an integral part of your workflow.

Introducing The World’s First Real Time File Sharing App for iPhone

Title ImageToday, we’re delighted to introduce Jumpshare for iPhone – the world’s first real time file sharing app. You can immediately share your files with a link, or via email without waiting for uploads to finish. It also comes with a powerful file viewer, advanced sharing options, and useful tracking features which help you work smarter and be more productive on the go.

Sharing a file with Jumpshare is at least 3x faster. This is an incredible improvement over existing file sharing apps which require you to wait until files are uploaded before you can generate a shareable link.

Share Files In Real Time

Share Files in Real Time

Jumpshare is designed for instant sharing. You just open the app, select files to upload, and share them right away. There’s never any waiting involved! The real-time nature of Jumpshare makes file sharing a near-invisible component of your daily workflow, helping you remain focused on your work.

Your recipients enjoy the same seamless experience. Uploading progress from your end is shown in real-time, and files are loaded the moment they’re ready – no page refreshes required.

What’s more: after sharing files, you can smartly time your follow-ups with recipients because Jumpshare sends push notifications when they view or download your files.

View 200+ File Formats

View 200+ File FormatsFile sharing works particularly well when everyone can easily open and view files. So, delivering a powerful file viewer which goes beyond the basics was one of our biggest tasks as we developed the app, and we are proud what we have achieved!

Jumpshare can open over 200 file formats – a number unheard of in the mobile space. Everything you work with on a daily basis can be previewed flawlessly. From documents, photos and videos to code, fonts, Markdown, and Photoshop/vector files. Whether you’re using the iPhone app, or viewing shared files on mobile, or desktop, the days of installing separate apps for different file formats are over!

Bookmark Anything

Bookmark AnythingStumbled upon a funny video, or an important article? Save it for later with the Bookmark option. You can also use our link shortener to share and track how many times your link has been viewed.

What’s more: you can directly upload files you find online to your Jumpshare account. Just bookmark the file’s URL, and our servers will fetch and upload the file for you!

Advanced Sharing Options

Advanced Sharing OptionsWhen a simple link or email doesn’t cut it, you can rely on Jumpshare’s more advanced sharing options:

  • Share temporary links based on time, or number of views and downloads
  • Set files to self destruct automatically after a certain time
  • Disable downloads so recipients can only view – not save – your files
  • Lock files with a password to protect them from unauthorized access
  • And a lot more when you upgrade to Jumpshare Plus: 1TB of storage, custom branding, domain, Analytics, Inbox, and scheduled sharing

Jumpshare is the world’s first real-time file sharing app for mobile, and the last mobile file sharing app you will ever need. We’re incredibly excited about launching it today, and simply cannot wait to show you what we have in store!

Happy New Year 2016! 🎉

Thank you for choosing Jumpshare for sharing your files. Last year, our users uploaded and shared almost 5 million files, which were viewed and downloaded an amazing 11 million times altogether!

We want to help you share your best work with your team and clients, so today, we’re releasing a document controls bar for the file viewer, with a new option to switch to fullscreen, or print the document, and the ability to view images in their original resolution without compression.

Last year, we introduced nested folders on the web, and launched an all-new, powerful Mac app. We continued adding useful features like Favorites, List view, flawless PDF output, Sketch integration, and voice clips recording.The success of our web and Mac apps have helped us grow immensely – both as a file sharing platform, and as a team.

2016 will be absolutely spectacular!

Our iPhone app is just a few weeks away from launch. We are making final preparations as I write this blog post. Within the Jumpshare team, we’ve almost completely shifted to using this app since there’s little to no need to open the web app anymore. It’s that good! Once launched, the Android app will follow soon.

A completely overhauled Windows app is right around the corner, too. It meets the excellent standard set by our Mac app, and then effortlessly goes beyond it. Everything our users love about the Mac app – lightning fast uploads, nifty annotation, screen & voice recording tools, and general, rock-solid reliability – is there, plus other features we want to keep as a surprise for now.

On top of launching these apps, we’re working on comments, and other features to help you take feedback and collaborate with your team and clients from anywhere!

We have lots of exciting things planned for 2016, and can’t wait to unveil them over the coming months. We hope Jumpshare will play an important part in helping you achieve greater success.

Happy New Year!

– The Jumpshare Team

New In Jumpshare: List view, and Incredible PDF output

These are exciting times to be a Jumpshare user!

Firstly: for a limited time, we are offering a steep 37% discount off Jumpshare Plus. This is the first time we’ve ever put Jumpshare Plus on sale! There’s incredible value to be found in this deal, especially since many powerful Plus-exclusive features are launching in the near future.

Secondly: we are introducing two popularly demanded features: List view, and pixel-perfect PDF output. We’ve carefully engineered both to ensure they live up to Jumpshare’s high standards.

List view

We designed Jumpshare to be a visual stream of your files. The current thumbnail design gives you a great bird’s eye view of your work, but it isn’t for everyone. Power users who upload minor variations of the same file focus on the names first, and thumbnail previews second. Some users simply prefer list view over thumbnail view, since that is what they use generally. That’s why starting today, you can switch to List view to move through your files faster!

List view puts filenames front and center so you can work faster as your files and their organization grows increasingly complex; compact previews are shown alongside so you can take a quick peek at your files. Simply visit your Settings page to switch to list view.

Incredible PDF output

Thanks to a complete rewrite of our PDF conversion engine, PDF documents look downright incredible in our file viewer! Fonts look beautiful, images are razor-sharp and layouts are pixel-perfect. PDFs are one of the most regularly shared files on Jumpshare, so this will improve everyone’s file sharing experience.
