Cloudup is a new web app that makes file sharing a very easy thing to do. If you know how to drag and drop a file, you already know how to use Cloudup to share files with your friend online. You can drag a file to your own Cloudup dashboard to share it, or if you are on Windows, you can have a tiny windows client running in the system tray waiting for you to drop any files to it.
Let’s see how it works with a tiny Windows client.
First of all, you need to download its windows client. You will get the download link once you sign into your account on Cloudup.
Once it’s installed, it will be hidden in the system tray but always shown up there next to the clock. And obviously, you will need to sign in your account first.
Now it’s ready, you can drag any type of files into the little red icon in the system tray to upload and share it, videos, pictures, musics, documents, or even urls.
A web browser tab opens up automatically to upload the file into Cloudup server right after you drop a file into the Cloudup icon in the system tray. Once it’s uploaded and processed, you will have everything you need right away from the same browser window.
The uploaded file will also be listed automatically in your own Cloudup account dashboard as well.
Cloudup is completely free and easy to get started. All signed up users can share up to 1,000 items for free. No setup, no credit card, instant access right from the web, phone or your desktop.
Signing up is a little bit tricky at the moment. You will need to provide your email address to get onto their waiting list. I’ve only got about 10 invites left to help you to jump into the line without waiting. Feel free to use them if you are interested.
