Otherwise, to send very large attachments often requires a third party app. Here’s one that’s free. It works with Dropbox and Amazon S3 and it could not be much simpler to use. If you can drag and drop you can use Kibako.
Drag, Drop, Upload, Send
File sharing is easy, right? There’s AirDrop on Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Except you need the right Mac, and the right version of OS X.
There’s email. That works. Unless the attached photos or files exceed 10MB or the recipient’s email inbox is full already.
Kibako makes those hiccups and speed bumps a distant memory with a simple drag and drop process. Grab a file, drag it to Kibako. The file gets uploaded to your Dropbox account or Amazon S3 account.
You also get an address; a URL that you can send via email or text. When the recipient clicks on the link, the file you uploaded gets downloaded. Win, win, win.
Not bad for free, right? Drag and drop, upload, send.
That’s it. Large files and photos get transferred instantly, and you get a URL; an address you can share with others so they can download what you uploaded. Plus, your uploaded files are cataloged and accessible from an online control panel, so they’re always available.
Wait. There’s more.
Kibako is free for the basics and most of us need nothing more than a free and easy way to upload and share large files online, but the Pro version comes with a few options good for business, including a personalized domain name link. What I’d like to see is a timeout feature whereby the link to the uploaded photos or file would expire after a set amount of time.
Otherwise, it’s hard to beat free and easy. And the Amazon S3 upload option is a big plus.
