Helps you to safely and rapidly upload and share files with your friends, family or co-workers
It is worth mentioning that in order to successfully use Dropshare, you need to have either a server of your choice and a working SSH user account or an account for Amazon AWS if you want to use the Simple Storage Service (S3).
Dropshare works with SCP over SSH for which you need to provide an account and password or a SSH key pair for public key authentication.
In addition, you need to have a webserver installed on your server that will server the uploaded items from your target folder.
Check the upload history and keep track of the shared items
The unobtrusive and intuitive menulet is designed to run in the background and you can access some of its tools and features via a user-definable hotkey or from its status bar menu. The status bar menu helps you view recently uploaded items, check your upload history and access the Preferences window.
Dropshare can be configured to automatically start at login and you have the option to enable or disable the notifications displayed via OS X’s Notification Center. The Connection tab under the Preferences window helps you setup your SCP over SSH or Amazon S3 upload and enables you to test your connection before using the app.
Randomize file names, shorten your share URLs and personalize the landing page with ease
What is more, Dropshare is capable to randomize filenames or keep the original filename and shorten the share URL using the desired URL shortener. On top of that, Dropshare can be configured to automatically upload screenshots from any given location and, when the upload is successful, delete the local screenshot file.
Furthermore, Dropshare allows you to use landing pages for your shared files and enables you to use a custom design that you can grab from the web or create on your own.

- Please note: This update changes the way Dropshare uploads screenshots. Instead of automatically uploading screenshots taken with Mac OS X, Dropshare now has its own keyboard shortcuts for capturing and uploading screenshots. This gives you great power and flexibility: You can decide ad hoc which screenshots should be uploaded with Dropshare, and which should stay on your local machine only (by using the default Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts). This will also speed things up under the hood a lot!
- The preferences have been completely revamped - no more clutter and confusion anymore
- A rare bug where the menu bar icon would disappear has been fixed
- A rare bug with Rackspace Cloud Files where Dropshare would stop working when using a deleted Rackspace account has been fixed
