What can you use the app for?

CloudApp gives Mac users a convenient way to share images, music, links, files and videos online. The simple interface utilizes a drag and drop system. The user drags the desired file to the menu bar. CloudApp handles the uploading automatically. After the file has been uploaded, CloudApp provides the user with a short link that is copied to their clip board automatically. The user can then share their files with anyone, from friends and family to coworkers. Users can access their files through the web based application so they can be sorted from anywhere. To protect user data, each file is stored on multiple devices in case of data corruption. Mac users can set hot keys to automatically trigger file uploads, screen shots or print to functions to CloudApp. Users can also access the CloudApp Raindrops to download plugins for Photoshop, iPhoto, iTunes and many other applications.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The CloudApp website has a very Spartan appearance that works very well for this service. Users are greeted by the sleek purple and black header, which is complimented by the simple yet effective CloudApp logo. The drag and drop interface takes some of the steps out of uploading files and help make the CloudApp interface as user friendly as it is.

How does the registration process work?

New users can create a CloudApp account by clicking the small blue “Sign Up” button found along the lower, right hand corner of the purple and black header. This takes the user to the log in area, which automatically has the register form selected. The form is as short as possible, asking for an email address and password. A brief note at the bottom advises the user that by creating an account they are agreeing to the CloudApp terms of service. After submitting the information, a drop down bar advises the user to check their email for an activation message.

CloudApp provides users with two membership options. The first is a free account that gives the user up to 10 daily uploads and a maximum file size of 25 MBs.
