Holiday Update: Unlimited Screen Recording, New Real Time Engine, and More

Today we’re thrilled to introduce the new features and improvements we’ve been working on over the past few months – we’re calling it the Holiday Update. This update will make sharing even better for you across all apps.

Brand New Real-Time Engine

The first thing you’ll notice is how fast the files update on all apps and platforms. We’ve completely rewritten our real-time engine from scratch to make it more powerful.

This brand new real-time engine now powers all our apps. Not only will you see your latest uploads appear in real time on all platforms, but views count, newer versions of files that have been updated, comments, and notifications will update concurrently.

Introducing Version History

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 You can now upload a newer version of the file without breaking the share link.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.

Jumpshare Inbox: Receive Files From Anyone Instantly

As part of our workflow, sometimes we want to receive files from our customers, clients, contractors, etc quickly without asking them to sign up for an account to our preferred file sharing service. Where our goal at Jumpshare is to make file sharing as easy as possible for our users, receiving files from others is also something we want to simplify. After many months of brainstorming and development, we’re happy to introduce Jumpshare Inbox, a permanent solution to this very problem. Once set up, you’re given a unique personalized link which you can share with anyone to receive files instantly in your Inbox. It’s as easy as the name suggests.

How it works:

Visit the Settings page and you will find a new section called “Inbox”. Take your time to set it up by giving your Inbox a unique name, which will become the vanity URL.

Once done, you will be given a unique personalized URL based on the name you choose for your Inbox.

Inbox name

Now just share this link with anyone to instantly receive files in your Inbox. We’ve made the Inbox link such that it’s easy to memorize. The recipient has to write his/her name and email, add files and just hit Send. It’s that easy! The recipient also has the option to write a subject or a message, both of which are optional.

Jumpshare Inbox

There is no limit to the number of files you can receive, nor is there any file size limit.

Jumpshare Inbox Uploading

All received files go in your Inbox. To access the files, go to the “Shared” tab and you will find them listed on the “Shared with me” page. You can view files, download them, or save them to your account for permanent safekeeping.

Inbox is going to be a lifesaver for those whose work depends on receiving files from their customers on a daily basis. Let us know what you think about this feature. Jumpshare Inbox is available to all Plus users. Happy Receiving!

Jumpshare Plus Now Offers 1TB (1,000GB) Storage For The Same Price

1tb-600

We launched Jumpshare Plus to make sharing large files easier. As the world moves to 4K videos and High Resolution RAW images, many of you told us that 100GB is not enough space to store all the important stuff. So starting today, we’re offering 10x more space to Jumpshare Plus users. We’re excited to announce that all Plus users will now get 1 Terabyte storage (1,000 GB).

This is a big jump and with many new features in the pipeline, we want to ensure that you have enough space for your files so you can get the most out of Jumpshare.

Prevent Others From Downloading Your Files And Send Temporary Link

advance-share

Starting today, you can prevent recipients from downloading your files and limit them to previewing only. Disabling download also prevents others from copying any text or content from your document, presentation, spreadsheet, video, audio, code, or any other file types.

Along with the ability to disable download, you can also send a temporary share link that expires after a certain number of days, views, or downloads. There is no upper limit on the number you can select to expire the files.

We believe both options will give you more control over the files you share. You will find these options inside the Share box. Just upload your files, click Share, choose the desired Advanced options and hit Send. It’s that simple!

Advanced Share is only available to Jumpshare Plus users. If you have not upgraded yet, Upgrade now!

Locked a Folder? Now You Can Change Password or Reveal Existing Password

Change Password - Locked Folder

We’ve added a small yet useful option for Jumpshare Plus users. If you’ve locked a folder, you can now change the password without having to unlock and lock the folder again.

The few seconds between unlocking and locking the folder meant that the user’s files were left unsecured, this will no longer be the case from now onwards. If you’ve shared a locked folder with a client and forgotten the password, you can use the Change Password feature to reveal the existing password.

Here’s how it works.

Right-click any locked folder and then click “Unlock” from the menu. In the pop-up that will appear, you will see a “Change Password” button. Click this button and you will see the previous password highlighted in the text field. You can either copy this password or type a new password.

It’s that simple. Happy Sharing!

Introducing Jumpshare Plus

Jumpshare-Plus-banner-simple

Imagine if every file you share could be viewed online, if every desktop, smartphone and tablet could open the files irrespective of the platform they are running. No need to download the files, no need to install third-party apps to view them. Technology should do the work for you.

Two years ago we started developing Jumpshare with this simple mission. We have since come a long way. At Jumpshare, we’ve build a solution that makes it possible to view over 200 file formats online. This does away with all third-party apps built to help you view the files. Jumpshare is a single destination where you can share and view all types of files online – and in coming future – gather feedback and collaborate with people.

We started with a quick drag & drop web app in September 2012, moved to free user accounts in February 2013, made it mobile-friendly and introduced the Mac app in July 2013. Now a year later – after 0.5 million successful file conversions – we’re finally launching the much awaited Jumpshare Plus.

Jumpshare Plus offer users more storage, better features, unlimited file upload size, support for custom domain and early access to new formats, all for $10 $9.99 per month on a monthly plan or $9 $8.25 per month (paid as $108 $99 per year) on a yearly plan. And we’re just scratching the surface of what we can offer. There’s plenty more to come.

So what’s new in Jumpshare Plus? We review some of the new features below.

Schedule Share

Jumpshare Schedule Share

Imagine you want to share a document publicly on a specific day, or have designs sent to a client on the due date, or simply want to share files at a time when you know you won’t be able to go online. Schedule Share allows you to set a future date and time for sharing your files.

Not only can you schedule files to be sent by email but can also schedule to share them on Facebook and Twitter. Google+ and LinkedIn support is coming up next.

The shares are scheduled according to your timezone. We automatically detect and set a timezone for you but if you want to set a different one, you can change it from the Settings. A new Scheduled Shares tab is added where you can see the list of all shares you’ve scheduled. From this tab you can edit the shares you’ve scheduled or cancel them.

Password Protection

Jumpshare Plus Password Protection

Every file uploaded to Jumpshare has a 20 character long unique URL which is hard to guess, but for super sensitive file, you can add an extra layer of security by locking them with a password. Locked file can be shared on social media or on websites and forums and access can be restricted. There is no limitation on the password length and we support special characters to help you make passwords even more secure.

Self-Destruct

Jumpshare Plus Self-Destruct

Self-Destruct takes the security of your files up by another notch. In case protecting your files with a password was not enough, you can set your folder to self-destruct after x number of days. Once self-destructed, your folder (and all files inside it) will automatically be deleted.

You can choose to self-destruct your files if you’re running a limited time public campaign (24 hours, 48 hours, one week, one month, etc) and want the readers/users to access the files within the timeframe given.

If your job requires you to share large amounts of files every month, you can set the files to self-destruct after a few months to free up space in your account for newer files. If you want to give someone limited time access, you have the option to choose both the date and time when setting up the self-destruct.

Custom Domain

If you have a personal brand or small business, you can now use your own domain name to personalize file sharing and enforce your brand image.

The default Jumpshare URL looks like:

https://jumpshare.com/v/blahblahblah

With custom domain, the URL can be:

http://yourdomain.com/v/blahblahblah

Your users, followers, customers, or clients will see your brand name as part of the share URL.

And Much More

50GB storage, bigger uploads, priority support, and the ability to send files to 100 recipients in one go. And did we mention that Plus users get early access to new file formats? As we continue to expand the number of file formats we support for online viewing, Plus users will get the ability to view them online before Free users (in some cases 3-6 months earlier). The 100MB file size cap is no more; it’s just you and your files.

Okay, that’s about everything. Now go upgrade your account!
