What is it?


senduit: A beautifully spare and elegant file sharing tool.

Who makes it?

Davidville, Inc. (the crew who created Tumblr)

Why is it the killerest?

Last week I reviewed drop.io which was also clean and simple, but full-featured. If you don't need all those features, it'd be hard to beat senduit for uncompromised simplicity and elegance. It's another site I can (and will) use with my family and clients and won’t have to explain anything.

Here’s the process:

1. To send a file: Browse for File – Click Upload Button – Copy Link – Paste Link (to email/IM).

2. For the recipient: Click Pasted Link – Save Download.

The End.

No login, short easy-to-share urls.

You can set the expiration on a file for from 30 minutes up to 1 week.

The download page couldn’t be simpler. It starts the download without any user action needed (while you look at an ad). 

It has 100% of what you need to share a file, and 0% of what you don’t.

It does not get any tighter than this.

What could be improved?

It might be nice to also enter an email address to send the file to after its uploaded. This would be a compromise on the perfect simplicity of the beast though, so it’s a hard call.

How much does it cost?

$0.00
