Ge.tt: A Real Time File Sharing Service
By on November 30th, 2010

There are quite a good number of free file sharing websites available on the web, most of them do not require users to create an account . You can simply open the homepage of the file sharing website, upload a file, grab the link and share it with anyone.

The problem with majority of file sharing services is that you have to wait for the uploads to finish. You are not given the shareable download link, until the file has finished uploading. There are two main disadvantages of this approach.

The first annoyance is when your browser crashes suddenly, while you are uploading a file. Imagine this – you are uploading a 50 MB file on a free file sharing website and the uploads crash at 80 %. You have to start the upload procedure all over again.

The second disadvantage is time dependency, you can’t share the download link of the file while it’s uploading and have to wait for the uploads to finish.

That’s when Ge.tt saves the day !

Ge.tt takes a different approach, the site provides the download link immediately after you have selected the file(s) to be uploaded. Head over to the Ge.tt homepage, select the files to upload and grab the shareable download link. No sign-ups or registrations are required.

There are three handy options available on the upload page – share on Twitter, share on Facebook or share via email. Just click the corresponding link and the download link is shared on your social profile. Handy !

All files that are shared using Ge.tt expire in 30 days, by default. By creating a free account, you get some added features e.g real-time statistics telling exactly how many users have downloaded your file, more expiry days and so on.

Ge.tt works directly from your browser – no Flash, JavaScript applets, absolutely nothing to install. Do give Ge.tt a try and let us know your ideas in the comments section. [ via ]
