Fyels is a minimalist drag-and-drop file sharing app that makes sharing larger files with colleagues or clients a breeze. Head to the website, and then drag and drop your file onto the dropzone. Once the file is uploaded, you’ll be provided with a ready-shortened link to it that you can share with people over email, IM or Twitter.
It’s just about as stripped-back as an online file sharing service could possibly get; there are no fancy bells and whistles whatsoever. Unlike Dropdo, another simple file sharing app I covered recently, it has no built-in file viewing functionality, for example (although Fyels does at least provide a mechanism for deleting uploaded files yourself), and you can’t apply a password to uploaded files. But if all you need is a very quick, simple and no-login way to share larger files with colleagues or clients, Fyels is ideal.
Fyels is free, with a file upload limit of 25MB (a limit that may be increased soon). A Mac (s aapl) desktop client is also available; it doesn’t offer any additional functionality over the website, although it may be slightly faster to switch to than the website for heavy file-sharers.
