Digital Pigeon provides users with an elegant, effective way to send large files over the internet. The application can handle files as large as 2 GBs. The user is also given access to a number of convenient features such as the ability to send one file to multiple users at once. The user can also send multiple files at once, personalize the file pick up page or email and receive notifications to verify that the files were successfully received. The application works much like email. The user only has to enter in the recipient’s information and a short summary of the files being sent. The user is also able to set an expiration date for the files, password protect files and preview the notification email. Files are sent securely through Digital Pigeon’s encrypted network. The user can log in to their account to forward existing files to additional recipients, view the file pick up page, manually delete files from their account, customize account page colors, add a logo and upload a new background image.Show more screenshots »
