I've been using this program for 3 or 4 years and it has one of the things I rarely get out of such utilities: Consistency! It always works just the way it's supposed to and I don't have to endlessly fuss with things. I drag them more...

I've had FileChute for years and found it to be very useful. When MobileMe was killed by Apple, I found I missed this tool. Now the new version works with my Dropbox, and it's wonderful! The app is small, fast, easy to setup and use with new OS X versions. It is well worth the money!

An old reliable, updated, that does away with all the new Apple services that too often simply don't work.

I have been using Filechute for years.
It is one of the fastest and easiest ways to send files to colleagues
family or friends. Thank you for this excellent time saver. Would like to add that I just recently transferred to a newer Macbook with no hassle at all unlike some other developers where you have to jump through so many processes. Excellent! Well worth every penny.

I have been using this for years - painless, simple and elegant. LOVE IT! My only quibble (it's tiny) is the reminder about old files on your server - I would like that to be a pref to ignore.

I've been using FileChute for years. I originally purchased it as part of the awesome Yellow Mug software bundle. The integration with DropBox is wonderful for photographers. Highly recommended.

Filechute definitely gets a "hats off" from me. I've been using file chute for years now. It is very simple to use and very effective at what it does. I like to send pointers, not files. It allows me to control what files people can have access to, minimizes issues with receiving mail servers and allows me to easily expire access to files after a predetermined time period.
I like all my yellow mug applications. Simply, done right!

Use now for over 5-6 years. At times, steep learning curve, but once you do, it is stable and works very very well. No real complaints at all. Worth it for large files such as music or photos.
