WeTransfer, the file-transfer service, has today announced the launch of a file-transfer app specifically designed to send imagery or videos. The app, which will initially be available on iOS devices, is the next step in creating a WeTransfer ecosystem, which will give users a simple way to transfer multiple high-res photos and videos wherever they are, without lengthy or costly sign-up processes. Additionally, the app removes the need for wires or syncing to a laptop or desktop.
The WeTransfer app will enable users to send as many images and videos as they like with as few clicks as possible, making use of multiple navigational gestures. The app allows users to send up to 10GB of images and videos from their smartphones by gaining access to the user’s camera roll. Additionally, users will be able to make use of 3G and 4G networks as well as Wi-Fi to transfer their photos and videos for free.
If a user wishes to cancel or pause a transfer they can now do so at any time and resume it when convenient to provide greater control. To send videos and photos, users will also have the ability to use their device’s address book for easy e-mail address selection.
Other features of the WeTransfer app allow users to:
The app will also feature WeTransfer’s iconic background imagery designed specifically to fit smartphone screens, mirroring the online version.
In addition to features available to everyone, ‘Plus’ account holders will also be able to store their transfers in their 50GB cloud storage, which they can later access via the web version of the service.
