In gmail, the maximum file size that you can attach in one email is 25MB. The file size limit is very less for other free email services as well. In such cases we look for online file sharing services using which you can upload and share files on the fly with a URL. There are sites like box.it, rapidshare that allow quick uploading and sharing of files. GETT is another such utility that lets you share even large files and share them in an instant.
The interface of drop is very simple and you’ll like it for its minimalism. Click on the “Select files” button, select your files and they will start uploading. Ge.tt offers real time file sharing, i.e. you’ll get the share URL even when your file is being uploaded. You don’t have to wait for it to be completely uploaded.
Even in a simple interface, Ge.tt shows stats for your shared files. Ge.tt shows you the number of times your shared file has been downloaded or viewed. Ge.tt works just fine with any browser and doesn’t require an additional plugin or any sort of desktop software for it to work.
You can start sharing files without creating an account but creating an account makes your files exist for a longer time. The main purpose of Ge.tt is quick and easy sharing of files; so the share URLs become redundant after about a month as a file is available for download only for 30 days.
Ge.tt is a really great utility to share large files that can’t be sent via emails or even smaller ones with friends. With real time statistics for files and easy sharing, it is definitely worth a try.
