Sharing files is so much part of life these days.Though there are a host of websites providing file sharing service for free,this one “Ge.tt” caught my eyes.It was launched officially just last month though it went viral in November last year.Over 188k files have been shared so far.
What I liked about Ge.tt?
Firstly it offers a free service!And as of now,it claims, there is no limit for the file size.Though the “terms” does mention of 2GB limit,but that is due to browser limitations and not from their side.So you can upload large files and share them.Users are permitted to save any file with Ge.tt, regardless of the file format or file content.
Well,what’s so special ,you might be wondering.
Here’s the part that sets it apart from the rest.
Firstly, It allows the files to be shared in Realtime.This means,you can share the file well before the upload has actually completed.So suppose you have to share a file and got to go to your office or some other place,you can just keep the file for upload,get the share link;share the file and leave. 🙂 Doesn’t get more simple than this,does it?
As we can share file of any format,and also open them on the browser(if supported);this can be used to share images/videos/documents,etc so no need of specially uploading images to an imagehosting site.
Sign-ups are not required,though you can always sign up to have your personalized account.If you do sign-up, here is what you get:-
- Files expire when inactive for three months
- Real-time statistics!
- More control over your shares
The Other thing i liked about Ge.tt is its interface.The process of sharing is completed in 2 simple steps:-
Select the file and Share
The files saved with Ge.tt are treated confidentially. Ge.tt does not provide any search function, with whose help the Ge.tt infrastructure can be searched.
The website is really cool with simple and plain interface.Though i don’t see any Ads up on the site as of now on the uploaders end but there is an Ad seen on the receiver/viewer’s end.
When contacted, Ge.tt team said the paid plans would be announced soon,mostly by the next month.
Ge.tt is still in Beta and looks quite promising.So what are you waiting for?,head over to Ge.tt and Give it a try! Make the most of it,while its still free 🙂
