quanp is an online file storage service that’s backed by Japanese copier giant Ricoh. It’s currently in beta, and is interesting because it allows for a very generous 10GB of free file storage and has an innovate 3D visual search interface. The company today announced a new quanp send widget for the service that allows users to easily transfer files — up to a whopping 500MB in size — to other people.
The quanp send widget makes transferring large files a snap: Just drag the files you want to transfer onto the widget. Then, enter the email addresses of the people you’d like to send your files to and add a personalized message. You can elect to send files to up to 20 recipients simultaneously. Your recipients will be sent an email containing a link to the files for them to download.
While the full quanp desktop client with the snazzy 3D interface is currently only available for Windows, the new quanp send widget is an AIR app and so is supported on both Mac and Windows. If you’re looking for a simple, fast and free way to transfer large files to other people, it’s recommended.
Note: When I tried the app, hitting the “Get New quanp ID” button in the quanp send widget didn’t work — the page couldn’t be found. You’ll need to register for an account here.
