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?

To get started, head over to and get downloading!

SendNow’s Rising Star

This week, some very exciting enhancements to Adobe SendNow were picked up on and featured by the incomparable Harry McCracken over on the Technologizer blog in an excellent summary post (thanks, Harry!). The Technologizer article also highlights a piece of the industry-leading SendNow service that we happen to care deeply about: that people can send 100 MB files using Adobe SendNow’s free plan (and 2 GB files with SendNow Basic and Plus subscriptions).

We like to think that this is just common decency: allowing for truly large files (100 MB is not small!) to be sent free of charge is our (frankly superior) solution to a ubiquitous problem. While other services in the field may believe that 50 MB is generous enough, we happen not to agree.

We want SendNow to be the best it can be—the best available, in fact—and that means giving you what you need from a file transfer service. These features are based directly on suggestions that we heard from all of you, and we’re very happy to be able to offer them.

Send More Files to the Cloud Now

Audio, Video Adds to SendNow Capabilities

When we announced Adobe SendNow – our cloud-based, file transfer service that provides a one-stop destination for sending and receiving large files with anyone, anywhere – we talked about how the need to be able to exchange documents easily is more and more critical to both business and personal success. We said we should be able to get access to and retrieve and view files reliably no matter where we are and no matter what device we are using at the time. And that this is where the cloud delivers real value.

Today, we’re excited to announce three new features for SendNow that will add a different dimension to your business, take your business to the next level and help solve real business and collaboration problems now.

Send audio and video files. Still emailing big files? Now you can upload and send all popular audio and video files. This is ideal for anyone relying on less convenient methods to send big media attachments – especially creative professionals, designers, architects and engineers. Audio-video file transfer is available now.

Personalize your SendNow notifications. You can raise your profile with your customers and colleagues by adding your company logo to SendNow notifications. Small and medium businesses can include their company logo to project a more professional, “larger-than-life” corporate image. Personalization will be available in June.

Access SendNow from your desktop. We’ve made SendNow so easy to use that you don’t have to open a browser. This is a huge time saver. A small application of SendNow can reside on your desktop and you can access most capabilities simply by clicking on the app’s icon. No need to open a browser, type in a URL and wait for a download. You can get the desktop app in Q3.

The new features are just three reasons for using SendNow. Here are some others:

  • Help reduce costs: Send as many files as you want
  • Send files faster: Instant delivery
  • Share files easily: Avoid email size limits and complicated FTP sites
  • Verify receipt and guaranteed delivery: Confirm that your files were received

There’s a range of service options available: from SendNow Free, to SendNow Basic at US$9.99 per month and SendNow Plus at US$19.99 per month. If you haven’t tried SendNow, you can do so just by going to Give it a try and see how easy it is to use and how much you can gain by using it!
