Email attachments just don’t cut it when it comes to quickly sharing extremely large files. Although a number of tools have been created to help people share smaller documents online — with Dropbox being the most popular of the bunch — people who needed to share RAW photos and expanded video files have been out of luck until recently.
Minbox is a tool designed specifically for people who need to quickly — and cheaply — share extra large files. See for yourself how quickly you can share files through Minbox by adding a special icon to your desktop menu bar, dragging your first file to the icon, entering the email address of the person you’d like to share the file with, and hitting “Send.” Minbox accepts RAW images, and turns them into responsive photo galleries that recipients can view. A file that’s 1GB in size can be shared in five seconds flat. You also have the option to upload files to be sent at a scheduled time in the future.
In addition to its lightning speed, Minbox is also cheap. So cheap, in fact, that it’s free. Users can send as many files, as large as they want, as frequently as they want, without paying a dime. Users who upgrade to Pro plans can get access to expanded privacy features, along with custom galleries, encrypted files, and other advanced tools.
