We all spend a significant amount of time on our desktops working on various tasks. Until now there wasn’t a single all-in-one app to meet all our file sharing needs. Most users look to web services to do the task for them, some still use clunky old apps to share files from their desktop. Many apps that are available today are focused on a specific demographic, i.e, designers, photographers, etc. Today we’re launching Jumpshare for Mac, a real-time file sharing app for everyone.
Are you a programmer? Drag and drop your code on to the menu bar icon to share. Your recipient will be able to view it online.
Are you a writer? Drag and drop your book or document on to the menu bar icon to share. Your recipient will be able to read it online.
Are you a singer or podcaster? Drag and drop your song or podcast on to the menu bar icon to share. Your recipient will be able to listen to it online.
Are you a designer? Drag and drop your Photoshop file, vector, or font designs on to the menu bar icon or take screenshots to share them automatically. Again, recipients will be able to view them online.
With over 200 file formats supported for online viewing, the Jumpshare app makes file sharing a fast, beautiful and seamless experience for both sender and receiver.
Launching the desktop app has been on our mind for over 2 years now, but making the best file viewer that supports the most number of file formats in the industry, has always been a higher priority. Now that we’ve spent years improving our backend to support over 200 file formats, it’s time we introduce the Jumpshare app for Mac.
How it works
Simply drag and drop your files to the Jumpshare icon in the menu bar to create a folder (also called a group or share) that can be shared instantly and securely with the recipient via a link (automatically copied to clipboard), without having to wait for uploads to complete. Alternatively, you can also hold down the “Alt” key and drag and drop files to the menu bar icon to open a Share box from where you can email files to up to twenty recipients at once. The recipients can then immediately view and access the files without having to sign up for an account.
If you only have a single file to share, just drop it on to the Jumpshare icon in the menu bar to share instantly. The recipient will see the content of the file in a viewer. It’s a simple, fast, and effective way to share your files.
Apart from super fast, real-time file sharing, the app shows a thumbnail preview and views count for all files uploaded from the desktop. You can access and re-share the last five uploads. To share last uploaded files, hover the mouse over the file and you will see two options, ‘Copy link’ and ‘Share’, allowing you to copy the link to the file or folder, or email the file/folder, respectively. To share on social media, right-click any file and select Facebook or Twitter.
Jumpshare utilizes HTML5 to ensure that recipients on both desktop and mobile can view the content of the files in any browser, on any device, anywhere in the world.
With the launch of Jumpshare app for Mac OS X, we hope that sharing files will be easier and faster than ever before for you. As always, we look forward to receiving your feedback. Give it a try and leave a comment below to let us know what you think.
