In the growing market of cloud-based storage providers, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. Some people prefer Google Drive, others like Dropbox, still others use private servers. There are no right answers but lots of room for confusion.
Dropshare brings some much-needed clarity to cloud-based sharing. It integrates seamlessly with multiple hosting platforms to let users customize their workflow between cloud hosts. The app makes it easy to upload, store, and share information smoothly and securely.
Let’s take a look at how to get the most out of it.
Dropshare lets you share files, clippings, and screenshots to a central cloud-based manager.
To add files to your manager, simply drag them to the droplet icon in the menu bar. You can also create a keyboard shortcut that moves whatever you’ve copied to your clipboard to the cloud storage.
You can also capture or record your screen effortlessly. Screenshots and recordings are automatically saved to your manager. Stills can be annotated with Preview, while screen recordings can be automatically uploaded as GIFs.
To take a screenshot, simply click and drag to take a still image of part or all of your desktop.
To make a screen recording, just click the big red button at the top right of the screen. When you’re done, select the red button in the menu bar and click “Stop & Upload.”
When you’re ready to share what you’ve uploaded, simply click the link icon next to the file in the manager. This will copy an access URL to your clipboard that you can send to whomever you’d like. The app also includes security features that allow you to create expiring and password-protected URLs.
Dropshare has its own hosting service, Dropshare Cloud, available for free to SetApp users. But it also can sync with third-party hosting services like Dropbox and Google Drive. If you use several hosting services, you can assign each one a hotkey and toggle between them.
The more you customize your Dropshare, the more it can do for you. Keyboard shortcuts help make the process smooth and effortless.
Whether you use a single cloud hosting service or alternate between several, this app will help you keep those connections in one easy-to-find place.
