WeTransfer Debuts New Mobile App to Boost Productivity

LONDON, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Simplicity and ease of use remains at the heart of WeTransfer.

WeTransfer, the file-transfer service, has today announced the launch of a file-transfer app specifically designed to send imagery or videos. The app, which will initially be available on iOS devices, is the next step in creating a WeTransfer ecosystem, which will give users a simple way to transfer multiple high-res photos and videos wherever they are, without lengthy or costly sign-up processes. Additionally, the app removes the need for wires or syncing to a laptop or desktop.

The WeTransfer app will enable users to send as many images and videos as they like with as few clicks as possible, making use of multiple navigational gestures. The app allows users to send up to 10GB of images and videos from their smartphones by gaining access to the user's camera roll. Additionally, users will be able to make use of 3G and 4G networks as well as Wi-Fi to transfer their photos and videos for free.

If a user wishes to cancel or pause a transfer they can now do so at any time and resume it when convenient to provide greater control. To send videos and photos, users will also have the ability to use their device's address book for easy e-mail address selection.

CEO and Founder of WeTransfer, Bas Beerens said: "There's been a lot of demand from our 20 million active monthly users to be able to send high res photos and videos from their mobile phones in a similar fashion to the web version. However, until now the technology to enable a smooth service was limited. The arrival of 4G and increasing coverage across the globe gave us the opportunity to work on a product that could offer the same service our users would expect from the online version.

"Aesthetics, simplicity and high quality imagery continue to be at the heart of WeTransfer, which is mirrored by our advertising model online and, now, in the app. With the app, users can continue to transfer photos and videos straight away with a few taps and view great imagery while doing so. Our continued growth reflects the success of this business mentality and the demand for high quality aesthetics."
