Swiftdrop is a small, non-intrusive utility application which loves to live in a user's Dock, or in the system menu next to the clock. When files or folders are dropped on the icon, they are uploaded to the public folder of the user's Dropbox account, or a Swiftdrop folder on the user's Google Drive account, whichever the user chooses to use. When the upload is complete, a publicly accessible URL pointing to the file is placed in the pasteboard, for easy sharing on the web, instant messaging etc.

Features include:
⁃ Dropping single files
⁃ Dropping multiple files (automatic zip)
⁃ Dropping folders (automatic zip)
⁃ History listing of your five latest drops for easy access to the URLs created
⁃ OS X Mountain Lion (and later) Notification Center support
⁃ Optionally moving original files to Trash after upload
⁃ Optional Dock icon / system menu display
- Set the remote folder to be used for each service separately

Google Drive specific:
⁃ Produce non-export links

All application feedback, such as upload progress, errors etc. is shown on the Dock icon, or next to the icon in the system menu. No user interface makes for a very light-weight and non-intrusive utility. Important status messages are also posted to the Notification Center.

The application uses the service API to communicate with the service provider of choice, so there is no need to install the client software to be able to use this application.

Please note that the application requires you to have a (free) Dropbox account (http://www.dropbox.com/), or a (free) Google Drive account (http://drive.google.com/). By using Swiftdrop, you are utilizing your service account, which means you are bound by the chosen provider's current terms of service.

Keep in mind that you are sharing files by dropping them on Swiftdrop. Please do not share files that you do not have the right to share.

And please, if you can't get the application to work, or don't understand what it's for - don't hesitate to contact us using the support link provided, and we'll get back to you as fast as we can! Writing an angry, bad review gets you nowhere, but sending us a support case just might clear things right up! :)


Release Notes:

- On popular request, you can now set the upload folders to be used (separate option for each service)
- Numbered the history items
- Fixed a bug that made the Quit option appear disabled in the system menu in certain cases
- New Google API

Don’t work - This app does none of the things it claims to do. The only factual thing about this app is the desktop image matches the one in the picture. It just bogged down my computer and did absolutely nothing. I repeat NOTHING.
