The week draws to another conclusion and this time, we do not have a top 5 for you. It’s been a busy week all round for the Design Solution team, but we do have some news to share with you.

1) The MailBigFile Pro Desktop App Has Been Released!

Utilizing the power of Adobe to bring forth media rich applicationsIt’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for (well OK, maybe not everyone). The MailBigFile Pro Desktop App has officially been released and can be downloaded from our servers right now.

Please though do bear in mind that the app is still currently in its beta stages, so you may encounter some unforeseen issues. Although if you do have any great ideas on how we could improve this piece of software, we’d love to hear from you. Please either mail us in with your idea or use the request feature option on your account.

The current features of the Pro App are as follows:

  1. Upload files to 5 recipients.
  2. Pulls in your personal address book.
  3. Schedule uploads to begin at a certain time.
  4. Remembers you so don’t have to log in every time you start the app.
  5. Drag and drop files straight onto the app.
  6. Resume Failed Uploads.

Additionally, the Desktop App requires Adobe Air to function. It can be downloaded here if you don’t already have it.

We’ll be looking to continue making improvements upon the Desktop App in the coming weeks and months so keep an eye out. As mentioned, please do in get touch with any ideas or features you think it needs as this will help us create an app which is best suited for yourselves.

2) MailBigFile’s Big Charity Giveaway Day:

We’re also planning to host a fundraising event for our chosen charity in the coming weeks. It will work simply by us sending all the funds we receive on that day for new accounts over to charity; and by all funds, we mean all funds. Not a single penny earned on new accounts will be taken home by us.

We have not yet decided what day we will host this event, but do plan to make it, well, as soon as possible really. You can however expect other advertisements and promotions to this regard as we’ll look to give the event as much momentum as possible.

So, if you were ever considering on upgrading to Pro or Business, then the day we do our charity event really would be the time to do it. We even plan to allow users to donate custom amounts to the charity if they were feeling so inclined.
