This week, let’s start out with a riddle: What’s better—easier, more effective—than sending your large files with SendNow, the file transfer service that’s always just a click or two away?

Actually, it’s a trick question. No such service could be easier or more effective than SendNow—except, perhaps, another manifestation of SendNow. The service that’s always been just a matter of a few clicks of the mouse is now even closer at hand with the release of our new Desktop App. In this new app, you’ll find all the pieces of SendNow that you’ve gotten accustomed to in the web-based version: easy file-sending capability, file tracking, and branding with your logo.

However, we’ve added a few extra tidbits to make the application even more convenient. First, the app saves you the trouble of opening a browser window; you can keep it running while you do your work—and it will always be ready for you when you want to send off your files.

Our second enhancement—available only in the desktop app—is the ability to drag and drop the files you want to send; this means a more intuitive interface and even fewer clicks for you. Instead of clicking around to find the file you want to send (“Where did I store that? Was it in ‘My Documents’? ….No; maybe on my desktop? No…”), just grab the file while you’re looking at it and drag it over to the SendNow application. Nothing could be simpler.

Finally, what’s better than the easiest and most effective file sharing desktop application? The easiest, most effective and totally free file sharing desktop application. If you’ve got a SendNow account, you can simply download and install the application—free of charge. How’s that for convenient?
