New uploading apps added to Spider Send

Spider Send is proud to announce that we have now implemented two new uploading apps on our website. These new file upload software, will make it much easier and more user friendly for our users to send large files.

One of the uploading apps that has been added is a Flash program for a faster upload speed and ideal for larger files between 100MB to 1GB. With this flash program, users can do everything they could do before, but much faster. Users interested in using this application must have Flash installed on their computer.

The second upload software that has been added is a Silverlight program which is ideal for files of any size (1MB - 2.00GB) and it supports resumable uploads. With resumable upload, you will not have to start an upload from the beginning if for any reason your connection cuts out. You would simply start the large file transfer from the point it was stopped at. To use this program, users will need to have Silverlight installed on their computer.

We hope that these new uploading software will help our users' experience at Spider Send.

New feature added to Spider Send (Drop Box)

We are proud to announce that we have implemented a new feature called Drop Box. a Drop Box is a page that can be customized for your own website where your users can send large files to you at a single click. Once the file(s) have been sent, you will receive an email notification to let you know about the file. You can then simply click on the link in the email and download the file.

Once you have downloaded the file, the sender will also be notified that his/her file was downloaded.

This feature will add a lot of value to our site and will offer a great solution for sending files too big for email.

An easy way to send large files

If you've ever tried sending large files to one or more of your friends, you must have realized the limitations and problems with this process. With all the new digital cameras these days, the quality of pictures and/or videos are a lot higher and therefore, the size of these files are also getting bigger and bigger.

Most email clients these days only allow up to 20-25MB per attachment. That could mean as low as 7-10 images only and in most cases, no way you can send a video file under that limit. Another option would be sending the file over msn. But those of you who have tried that, know how slow the transfer is and imagine having to do that with 10 people to send them the files. So what do you do when a file is too big to email?

Spider Send, is the solution for this problem. With Spider Send, all you have to do is upload your file once and send the download link to as many people as you like. This way, your computer will not be using the bandwidth and resources for each transfer, and the download speed for your friends or coworkers would much higher than email or messenger' speed.

How to send a large file to one or more people

Have you ever wanted to send a large file (a video, a collection of pictures, an application and so on) to a few of your friends? As we all know, it’s impossible to send a file larger than 20MB in most cases over email and msn or yahoo messenger would take a really long time specially if you have to send the file to more than one person.

There’s a new solution to this problem now. A new file sharing website called Spider Send was launched late November 2009. The way Spider Send works, is that you upload the file once to their server, and then from within this site, or via email, facebook, twitter and any other method, you just send a download link to your friends so they can download the file from Spider Send. So no more sending the file to multiple people, you just send the file once and Spider Send takes care of sending it to all your friends / coworkers.

Spider Send also has great deals and very cheap and free membership packages. You can send a file up to 25MB for free to multiple recipients without ever having to sign up. You can do this right from their home page. Then you can sign up for a FREE package which will still allow you to send files up to 200MB to multiple users again all for free. They have some paid membership plans as well where users get different file limits and features depending on their selected plan. Check out their different plans here: Cheap and Free file sending solutions.

This service could be used by anyone such as students, businesses, artists, photographers and so on. Basically anyone who deals with large files / pictures / videos can benefit from this great service.
