These days, you can share files using all of the different cloud storage providers like Dropbox and OneDrive, but if all you want is a super easy way to share files with people, Jumpshare might be worth a look.

Note: Jumpshare is also available for OS X as well.

What’s Different About Jumpshare?

The primary selling point with Jumpshare is that it can natively handle over 200 file formats in the browser. So when you share a file with somebody else, they will be able to view the file in their browser, no software (or account for them) required.

Jumpshare’s HTML5 file viewer works for almost any type of file.

The second major selling point is that Jumpshare is extremely easy to use: you just drag and drop a file onto the icon to upload it, and the share link is immediately on the clipboard, ready to paste. Or you can use the sharing options in the tray icon’s popup menu.

If you have the Plus version, you can make a link self-destruct after a certain number of days or you can disable download so they can only preview the file in the browser. Just email them directly from the popup interface, or you can copy / paste the link and send them a regular email in your preferred client instead.

If you like to take and share a lot of screenshots, Jumpshare has that option built right in.

Their web panel also allows you to easily deal with your files, and works a lot like the web panels for Dropbox or anything other storage service. The difference is that this one is focused around file sharing.

The free version of Jumpshare gives you 2GB of storage, but the paid Plus version gives you up to 1 TB of storage and a ton of extra features.

If you often need to quickly share files with clients or other people, Jumpshare is definitely worth a look. It’s free, after all, to try it out.
