A straightforward menulet that makes it easy for you to securely upload or share files and folders using your own server or Amazon S3
Dropshare is a lightweight, clean and streamlined Mac OS X application that makes it easy for you to quickly and easily share screenshots, files and entire folders using your own server.
Helps you to safely and rapidly upload and share files with your friends, family or co-workers
It is worth mentioning that in order to successfully use Dropshare, you need to have either a server of your choice and a working SSH user account or an account for Amazon AWS if you want to use the Simple Storage Service (S3).
Dropshare works with SCP over SSH for which you need to provide an account and password or a SSH key pair for public key authentication.
In addition, you need to have a webserver installed on your server that will server the uploaded items from your target folder.
Check the upload history and keep track of the shared items
The unobtrusive and intuitive menulet is designed to run in the background and you can access some of its tools and features via a user-definable hotkey or from its status bar menu. The status bar menu helps you view recently uploaded items, check your upload history and access the Preferences window.
Dropshare can be configured to automatically start at login and you have the option to enable or disable the notifications displayed via OS X’s Notification Center.
The Connection tab under the Preferences window helps you setup your SCP over SSH or Amazon S3 upload and enables you to test your connection before using the app.
Randomize file names, shorten your share URLs and personalize the landing page with ease
What is more, Dropshare is capable to randomize filenames or keep the original filename and shorten the share URL using the desired URL shortener.
On top of that, Dropshare can also be configured to automatically upload screenshots from any given location and, when the upload is successful, delete the local screenshot file.
Furthermore, the Dropshare utility enables you to use landing pages for your shared files and enables you to use a custom design that you can grab from the web or create on your own.
All things considered, if you’re looking for a simple way to share apps with your friends that’s also designed to stay out of your way at all times until the moment you need it, then Dropshare is one of the apps that could perfectly match your needs.
