This isn’t a general blog post explaining about some regular file sharing site. But I am very impressed with the way the file sharing site kept my sleeping hours away for writing a post at this night. Undoubtedly minus (which now I am talking about) is a revolution in file sharing. It has jumped out with a bunch of features to fascinate you.
The first striking element that makes minus impressive is the minimal and simplified user interface. And the amazing numbers they have rolled out on the storage and upload limits. I just tried uploading my favorite song unregistered to test the interface and the file sharing features. To my wonder, I just felt wow when I saw the way the files upload and the ease of way to share.
So I now thought of describing minus in two divisions—User interface and Storage Limits
The best thing about the UI in minus is it is completely drag and drop enabled. Just drag a file on to your browser and the file starts getting uploaded to minus!! It’s damn simple. Your dashboard is divided into three parts:
My files—where you can see the full list of the files you uploaded.
Feed—where you can find the new files or activity from the people you follow on minus.
History—where you can view your recent activity.
When you are on minus you can find a small bulb icon which can be used to toggle between lights on and lights off mode. You can just move your left arrow or right arrow keys to browse through the files. You can have the statistics of the files you have uploaded on the minus (this is cool).
You can arrange your files into Public folders and Private folders. The files in the Public folders are visible to the people following you on minus and also the files are searchable on minus, whereas the private folders are just visible to you and the people who have the link to your folder.
They offer 10GB of storage with unlimited bandwidth for upload and download. A maximum of 2GB single file can be uploaded at once from your minus account. Unregistered can also upload files One of the appreciated feature of minus is they allow hot linking your files which just comes handy when you want to use those images on a blog or forum.
I use personally minus for three ways for backup and for sharing. I created different public folders for sharing my favorite pictures , my works and Private folders for the backup of my drive.
Minus comes with tools for mobile as well as desktop apps which just make files available for you on the go. You can upload your favorite files from your device and get on to the later on a desktop or web later.
