How to use Droplr to share files easily.

Introduction

At a certain point, you may have realized sharing lot of files with your friends and colleagues takes a long time and becomes a hectic job if you do it as routine work.

There are many ways to share a file. Either you use social applications such as Whatsapp, Viber, Slack, etc. or attach a file to an email or you use cloud storage services such as Google Drive, One Drive, Dropbox, Mega etc. and generate a shareable link and then share it with the person you want to send a file.

The methods mentioned above have restrictions and time-consuming process. For instance, if you have a file size more than 20mb you can’t able to send it through social messaging apps, and same restrictions come for email too.

For sharing files of bigger size, many of them use cloud storage services which again comes with some set of problems. Sharing large size file is hard and time taking.

If you share files once in a while, it won’t be inconvenient, what if, you want to share as much as freelancers do then you will know about time loss and pain of manual labor you have to do. Here is where Droplr comes in hand. I have been using this for the past week, and I fell for it.
