Although email makes it easy to share files, sometimes it is limited. Users may need to send a file that is too big for a single email to handle. Without some kind of a server to work with, the user has few options. Uploadie provides users with a way to send off those large files easily, regardless of their email file maximums. The system works by giving users a specified amount of space to upload files to the site. The user can upload their files, which produces a link. The link can be emailed so the recipient can access the file location and download it at their leisure. Uploadie makes it possible to by pass email file limitations and make sure that someone receives the file they need.Show more screenshots »
