Cloudup announced the launch of its free, instant service for sharing any files or links by simply dragging-and-dropping them into the browser. Backed by funding of $2.875M from Charles River Ventures, Atlas Ventures, and other prominent investors, Cloudup uses HTML5 to ensure that both web and mobile users can instantly access what you're sharing regardless of device, operating systems, browsers, or applications.
Cloudup users simply drag-and-drop videos, photos, music, links, and files-such as YouTube videos, or Microsoft Office documents-to create a stream that can be shared instantly and securely with the recipient. The stream can be password-protected or shared freely through Facebook or Twitter, and the recipient can immediately view and access the media without having to sign up for an account. Users can share up to 1,000 items in their streams at no cost.
Cloudup is designed with mobile users in mind by utilizing HTML5 in the browser. Consequently, Cloudup allows users to view any file type on mobile, including PDF, PowerPoint, Word, and Excel. Mobile apps for Apple, Android, and iOS devices will be available soon.
