Deliver your work faster with Global CDN Network

After many months of optimizing our infrastructure to accommodate thousands of new customers, today we’re delighted to deploy a global CDN (content delivery network) that will enable our users to instantly preview their work, stream videos, and download at a lightning-fast speed. This change affects all users worldwide. Now whenever you and your recipients access a Jumpshare link, the content will be delivered right away without long wait times.

Based on our testings in different regions across the world – from Europe to Asia – we saw an increase in speed for images and document loading, video streaming and downloading between 2x to 10x. That’s a massive improvement. We hope with this change you can continue to deliver your work and ideas with your team and clients with confidence. Happy sharing!

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

Better Quality Documents And Revamped Code Viewer

Jumpshare code viewer

Today, two updates have been pushed live; the first improves the document quality three-fold and the second brings you a completely redesigned code viewer.

The documents were optimized to open 10x faster last month. We’re are starting this month by improving the quality of images in the document, giving you the best of both worlds.

The theme of our code viewer has been changed from white to black background and we’ve added some new colors and better syntax highlighting. Now show off your code to the world!

Your Documents and Presentations’ Output Is Now Pixel Perfect

Since launching in September, 2012, our users complained about the jerky and iffy output of their documents; MS Word, Pages, and PDF document. Because the same engine is utilized to convert the presentations, the output of Powerpoint presentations had been equally unimpressive. After spending countless hours coding, revising, testing and sweating blood and tears, today we are happy to announce that the output of our document and presentation viewer is perfect down to the last pixel. Below we have made some Before and After comparison to show you how much the output quality has improved. Scroll down to take a quick glance.

We are constantly striving for the highest quality of our file viewers and will not stop until we have achieved the best output. We are improving our engine routinely so if you come across any bad output or bugs, please don’t hesitate to report it (support@jumpshare.com). We will be more than happy to fix any problems you encounter and to ensure that you get the best possible file sharing experience.

Converting a document is a complex task and a multi-part procedure. We achieved this result by using both our technology and the open source pdf2htmlEX (for PDF to HTML conversions). Many users can experience the native PDF viewer in Chrome and Firefox browsers, however many more who are using Internet Explorer, Opera, and other browsers are not able to preview it. With Jumpshare, everyone, irrespective of the browser they are using, will be able to enjoy the pixel perfect output of Word, PDF, Pages documents and Powerpoint presentations. Did we mention that we support OpenOffice docs too?

Go ahead and upload some docs. Let us know how you like it in the comments below.

Share Your Files On Facebook And Twitter

Jumpshare Share Web

Starting today, you will notice a small but significant change when sharing files and folders on Jumpshare; the Email button has been replaced with a richer Share button. Two new options for sharing have now been added; Facebook and Twitter, allowing you to share the files quickly with your family and friends. For those of you who stay connected with their friends through Facebook and Twitter, this means sharing to those networks is now possible. Instead of manually copying and pasting links, you can share directly to these social networks.

Happy Sharing!

Now You Can Import Files Shared With You To Your Account

Jumpshare Import

We know how irksome it is to not be able to download files shared with you, either because your connection is slow or because your ISP has a bandwidth cap. We are also aware that many of you want to download files only to upload them again to your own account for safekeeping or to share them with your friends. Today we are introducing the Import feature to solve these problems. Just click Import on a folder or file shared with you and it will be added to your account instantly. If you are traveling and want to immediately save the files to access them later (either because you are busy or don’t have a fast internet connection), Import will come very handy.

You have the ability to Import the entire shared folder or individual files. To import the entire folder, just click Import button and confirm the action (see screenshot above). To import an individual file, hover your mouse over that file, click the Cog wheel icon and in the drop down, click Import. In the next step, specify which folder you want to import your files to. If you don’t want to import the file into any existing folder, you also have a choice to create a new folder.

You can test this feature here. We hope you like it. Want more features or have a bug to report? Let us know. We’re listening. Happy sharing!

Share Files Without An Account, Just Drag & Drop Them On Homepage

Today, we’re adding the functionality to share files without having to create an account, back to Jumpshare. You can drag & drop your files on to the home page (or hover over the dotted box to click) and share them. There are only two limitations; the total size of files you share at one time cannot exceed more than 250 MB and the files will be deleted automatically after 7 days.

To overcome these limitations, you will have to create an account, which is free and does not take more than a few seconds to create.

Along with this major update, we have also fixed plenty of bugs under the hood. Our thanks goes out to every one of you who reported the bugs. If you come across any bugs or want new features, hit our Forum or email us at hello@jumpshare.com.

Happy sharing!
