iShare, LLC launches open beta of iFileShare

An interesting bit of news for today, iShare, LLC has officially launched their open beta of their iFileShare service. It is functioning, free, and works fairly well. There is a couple minor management features which claim to be in the works, but they dont appear to be available just yet. Nonetheless, the application is working.

iFileShare is a service to allow you to upload a file to their servers, which store it securely and assign a unique code to reference the file. You then email the link (or the code) to the intended receiving parties and they can retrieve their file, without clogging up their inbox with a 20mb attachment. iShare, LLC reports that the automated email sending of the links is in the works and should be available soon, but for now, I am happy to live with their copy+paste method of sending the link.

Conveniently, iFileShare appears to record how many times the file you submitted has been downloaded, and according to the documentation on their website, they will soon be configuring the system to automatically disable file downloads after a certain amount of time and/or downloads and there will be an availability to see which IP address the file was downloaded from. There is storage and retention limits on their system, but they appear to be very liberal and pending adjustment upwards. The file retention policies appeared to be documented only, and not currently enforced.
