Protip: the free trial lasts forever.

Cloud

Need to send someone something fast? Try out Cloud. Just drag your file to the menubar icon and a link is added to your clipboard, ready to be pasted wherever its needed.
Protip: Running on Windows? FluffyApp uses the same login info, but works on your PC.
