What can you use the app for?

Senduit is a simple application allowing users to upload files and share them by creating a secure link. There’s a lot to be said for doing one thing and doing it well. The stark website makes the advantages of the app clear from the moment the user visits the site. Senduit also offers users the ability to set an expiration time on each link that they generate. The expiration times range from 30 minutes to one week, giving users flexibility and ensuring that the intended recipient gets time to claim the document at the other end of the link. Users may repeat this process as often as they like.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Senduit was founded by Davidville, a development company from New York. Davidville is now owned by Tumblr, who continues to maintain control of the Senduit application.

What are the differences to other apps?

Senduit certainly has its share of competition: there’s nothing original about file sharing. MegaUpload, Rapidshare, and Box are just a few of the apps competing with Senduit. In addition users can perform many of the same functions with Skydrive or Google Drive. All the same, Senduit’s clean, minimalist design creates an elegant interface that is easy to use and embrace.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Senduit website isn’t very attractive to look at: stark, “blah” greys, blacks, and whites don’t make it terribly exciting. It even looks a little outdated or unfinished, as if it were a site from a previous decade. The site is, however, clean, fast, and easy to navigate. Senduit is a site without any pretensions. It doesn’t take much time to understand what’s going on with Senduit: users can figure it out at a glance.

How does the registration process work?

Senduit is a rare website. Users don’t have to register or create an account to use it. Using it is as easy as uploading a document, setting an expiration time and e-mailing the link to someone else. This should come as a refreshing change of pace to users who are tired of having to provide loads of personal information every time they visit a site.

What does it cost to use the application?

Senduit displays advertising to the receiver of a file. The receiver has to wait 120 seconds before the download starts. If they use a browser with tabs the recipient can escape the ad by surfing to other sites while the ad is playing. After 120 seconds the download starts automatically. There are no ads for the person uploading the document, and no ads displayed anywhere on the site. Using the site or receiving a file are absolutely free.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Since Senduit is so simple and secure it makes sense for people who only have one or two documents to send over, or who want to ensure the document is secure. It also makes sense for those who don’t enjoy the format changes that some other sharing applications create. The large MB limit will be nice for anyone who routinely deals with larger documents. Users who share large numbers of files will be better off looking to other sites which provide more support.

  • Upload a file of up to 100 MB.
  • Set an expiration time of 30 minutes to 1 week.
  • The simple interface makes the app a breeze to use.
  • Lightning fast upload and download speeds make Senduit ideal for business use.
