I send files to people, you send files to people. People who have computers need to send files, it’s something we have needed to do since computers were first invented. It could be easier.
Sending files is laborious. You have to open an email, address it, click ‘attach’, choose the file, put something in the subject line, put something in the body and send it. Hassle. I’m tired of doing this.
That’s why I created sendcat.com. It’s a web service that makes it *really* simple to send files. There are services out there that promise two-step sending, I’m aiming for one-step file sending.
I want to make it simple to send files, but most developers are heavy terminal users. I’m planning on providing a CLI (Command Line Interface) client as a first-class interface to the Sendcat service.
Join the beta team, get a discount
If you’re interested in the beta head over to sendcat.com and put in your email address, I’ll let you know when it’s in beta and you can sign up. I’ll make sure there is some sort of discount for people who want to keep using the service when the beta period is up, sign up to make sure you’re eligible.
Right now Sendcat is in alpha. I’m looking for people to use the service (for free) while I work on features and bug fixes. It works though, I’m using it to send files to people daily.
If you want to try out the service for free email me. You will need a Mac OS X or Linux machine, RubyGems installed and a knowledge of the command line. The GUI client is coming soon.
