Sendoid provides users with a quick and secure way to share files over the internet. The P2P system eliminates the need to upload shared files to a server. The system is simple and includes all the basic functions a file sharing service should have, such as automatic retry and resume. The application does not come with a long list of extras, but provides enough functions to satisfy any user. Through Sendoid, users can share files to others with a click. There are no file transfer size limits, either, so the user as more flexibility when sending larger files. To transfer files, Sendoid creates a direct link from one user to the recipient. Each file is protected by a 128 bit AES encryption algorithm. Maximum file size limits depend on the resources of the user’s computer, which according to the website is usually between 600 MBs and 1 GB.Show more screenshots »
Sendoid was founded in 2011 by John Egan and Zac Morris, who created the company Caffeinated Mind. Their goal was to provide effective, simple data transfer solutions that anyone could use. Today, Egan holds the position of company president while Morris is the current vice president. Sendoid is the company’s flagship product.
There are numerous applications that offer users a quick way to share files. Most require an upload and add restrictions about how often a user can upload and download. Sendoid stands out because the application remains as simple as possible, giving users a way to connect directly to one another to transfer their files securely. The application offers a user friendly interface and all the basic functions a user might need to transfer files to others.
The Sendoid website welcomes users with a pleasing blue and black color scheme complimented by white and hints of orange. The application keeps things well organized and simple. Users can monitor their transfers with Sendoid, which gives users a list of current files that are marked with blue down arrows and green up arrows, revealing which are uploaded and which are downloaded. The user can also see progress for each file with a progress bar. Transfer speeds can be seen along the right hand side with a total count of uploads and downloads in the lower, right hand corner. The user is given all the information they need in a neat, concise interface.
Sendoid has made it easy for users to begin using the application. A new user can install Sendoid by clicking the blue “Install Sendoid” button in the lower, left hand corner of the homepage. A pop up box appears as the application is installed. Users can also click the larger green button that reads “Choose files to share…” to receive a link that can be used to share files.
Sendoid offers a simple but effective service. The price is another appealing aspect of the application. Anyone can install it directly from the Sendoid homepage for free. There are no registration requirements and no subscription required. The application limits file size based on the user’s computer’s resources. The Sendoid website also provides users with a feature request area, so as the application adds more functions it is possible that it might add a premium paid membership version. For now, there is no indication that this will happen anytime soon.
Sendoid is a fast, easy tool that enables users to transfer files from one computer to another. The application is very simple to use and can be installed quickly. New users can also try the link feature if they prefer to test Sendoid before installing.
