Zapr – really simple file sharing

zapr Zapr   really simple file sharing

Zapr is a really simple file sharing (RSFS?) application that allows you to share folders, subfolders and files with people remotely. Just install the application on your machine (the person receiving the files doesn’t need to install anything), choose which folders or files you wish to share and add a password if you wish. Zapr will then create a URL that you can send to the receiver to download the files. You can even use the link yourself to access your files on the road.

The sharing is live so if you change any of the the files you’re sharing, the changes are reflected immediately. There’s no uploading, no port forwarding or opening, just simple, easy-to-use and secure sharing with certification by VeriSign. Sounds like just what we need.

Zapr lets you create URL links to any files or folders on your PC. You can then send these links to others (via email or IM or YOURNAME.zapr.com) and they can get the files or see the folders directly from your PC via any browser. They do not need to register or install software.
