Ge.tt: Simple Sharing of Large Files (Remember Drop.io?)

Ge.tt is a great free tool for quickly and easily sharing files that are too large to send by email (up to 100mb). As a digital art teacher, I often had students trying to send me videos, flash files, audio, or big presentations. As a digital designer, I use this type of service to send clients high quality proofs of materials. Ge.tt is a copycat website of a service I used to use and love, Drop.io, until they were bought by Facebook. While Ge.tt has not yet matched all of Drop.io’s awesomeness, it is still the quickest and easiest way to send someone large files.

The beauty of it is that you can just drag & drop your files onto the website– you don’t even have to make an account if you don’t want to! Just post your files– Ge.tt will give you a short URL to send to your friend. They just follow the link and download the file– easy peezy!

How do you share large files with friends, colleagues, and clients? Let us know in the comments.

    Thanks! I’d just used Drop.io for the first time when they got killed. This looks like a great replacement.
