Dropshare is a tool for uploading pictures, videos, screenshots and files of all kind from your iOS device to a hosting provider of your choice.
Please note: Dropshare is not free! Dropshare Pro (one-time In-App Purchase) is required to upload files to your own server (via SCP over SSH), Amazon S3, any S3 API-compliant service (like OpenStack Swift), Rackspace Cloud Files, Backblaze B2 Cloud Files or Google Drive. The app is free only for subscribers of Dropshare Cloud.
Dropshare supports Multiple Connections: You can set up different upload destinations at the same time and switch between them easily for each upload.
** Uploads everything
Dropshare is able to open files of any kind with its Sharing and Action Extensions. Upload directly from your favourite app like the Photo Album, or any other app that offers sharing functionality. Multiple images can be uploaded at once and will be archived in a ZIP file.
** Dropshare Sync
Synchronize your upload history including preview images across all your devices, supports both iOS and Mac OS X. Easily see all the uploads made from your Mac within Dropshare for iOS. Plus, synchronise your custom landing page across all your Macs and iOS devices.
** Dropshare Safe
Easily create access-restricted URLs for your uploads with either a lifetime and/or password.
** Import your connections from Dropshare for Mac
If you've already set up Dropshare on your Mac, just export all your connections to encrypted .dropshareconnection files and import them on your iOS device.
** Beautiful individual landing pages
** Choose your URL shortener
Dropshare supports URL shorteners as well - natively supported URLs (e.g. dsh.re), or configure your very own URL shortener service like bit.ly or YOURLS.
** Filename randomization
Optionally configure whether Dropshare should add a random suffix or completely randomize the filename before uploading the file.
** 1Password integration
Use 1Password to easily log in to Dropshare Sync with your account details.
** Screenshot extension
Dropshare offers a screenshot extension for your favourite browser: Capture the whole website and upload it right away.
** Image compression
Images can be compressed within 3 different levels prior uploading to save bandwidth and space.
To be sure Dropshare is the right tool for you, please read the following technical requirements:
** Dropshare Cloud
A valid Dropshare Cloud subscription is required in order to upload files with Dropshare Cloud. Please check out the Dropshare Cloud website for more information.
** Secure Copy (SCP over SSH) to your own server
Dropshare supports SCP over SSH natively. A working SSH user account is required on the server. A password or SSH key pair is also required. Please note that both the public and private key needs to be set up. To have the uploaded file displayed in a web browser, a web server needs to be installed and configured on the server. Please refer to the User Guide for more information.
** S3 API-compliant service
Dropshare supports services like OpenStack Swift. Check our User Guide for more information.
** Google Drive
A regular Google account is required in order to use Google Drive.
** Backblaze B2 Cloud Files, Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Rackspace Cloud Files
Please note that Dropshare does not support FTP!
In this update, we've improved how Dropshare handles files in the Share Extensions. You will notice that it now works far better to upload files from other apps like Files or third-party apps. Additionally, we've fixed an issue where uploads from the Share Extension would not synchronise to your other iOS and macOS devices. To make your life a little easier, Dropshare on iOS now supports Handoff - viewing an upload on iOS will magically pull up the Safari icon on your Mac in case you need the upload URL there. Finally, we added the possibility to import connections which have been exported with Dropshare 5 on your Mac.
Ratings and Reviews
The app itself cannot upload more than one image at a time. If you upload multiple images from Photos via the share sheet it creates a zip archive (huh?). Images are not originals, but converted to JPEG, and exif tags are lost.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the feedback! With the upcoming update, photos will be uploaded in their original format without data loss.
One of my everyday tools
I've used dropshare so much and so often, I'd kind of forgotten how integral it is to my workflow. It's like ⌘C or ⌘V—you can forget how useful it is until you realize how many times a day you use it. Rather than pay other SaaS services for the features dropshare provides, you pay once and attach it to your cloud storage of choice. My monthly AWS bill is roughly 17¢ for the storage I use, so this app has more than paid for itself. Flexible, cost-effective, and easy to use!
Simple yet fully-featured
This is something I’ve been wanting for a while. It works great as a companion to the Mac version or as a standalone app. I really appreciate the additional features for the security-minded (HTTPS links, file name randomization, encrypted connections import/export, etc). I would definitely recommend it for those looking for more control and customization when sharing files.
