Back in September of last year, I reviewed a free online file sharing tool Minus, that offered up to 10GB of free cloud storage. Almost five months later, I revisited Minus to find out how the site has grown. Minus has definitely become bigger and better with loads of new features and extra storage space among other things. If you haven’t yet signed up for Minus, check out what Minus has to offer.
What’s New with the Online File Sharing Tool Minus
Apart from its usual instant drag and drop sharing without registration, 10 GB free storage, browser extensions, desktop apps, and the ability to earn 1 extra GB for every friend you invite, Minus has a much cleaner and attractive interface.
You can explore other users folders and see what they are sharing. You can also like folders that interest you, comment on files, share them on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr, or send a personal message to the uploader.
The Minus search feature lets you filter your search results using the Explore tab or Your File Uploads. You can also find friends and their profiles on the right column of the search results page. Your Facebook contacts are also just a few clicks away. Just head over to find and invite friends to Facebook using Facebook Connect.
You can also share images from the web. All you need to do is enter the website URL or image URL to upload and share the images.
Another cool new feature of Minus is that you can personalize your account with a unique personal subdomain. So now instead of minus.com/username, you can have a username.minus.com subdomain. If you wish to, you can retain a profile private using the Protected Profile settings.
Minus also lets you capture screenshots of websites using the Web Snapshot tool available on the dashboard. The tool instantly captures and uploads your images to the desired folder.
Minus is also pretty useful for collaborating with others. There are links to invite contributors and generate contributor links to work with others.
So, if you love sharing images, photos, music files, or more in pretty quick fashion check out Minus. You won’t be disappointed. And let us know what you think of the free online file sharing tool Minus.
