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.

** 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.

Ratings and Reviews
Works well on my iPhone and uploading to S3
I’m not super technical, but I got this set up fairly easily.
When I did have a problem, I contacted support and the developers fixed it fairly quickly.
With the 4K camera on my phone the files get pretty big,And I wanted a super convenient way to get them uploaded to where the rest of my team could access them and process them. Drop share worked really well
Not happy about being hit up for a subscription to continue using an app that I already purchaced. Especially when I'm providing my own S3 accounts. I totally understand developers need to eat but I didn't sign up to feed them all every month just use some basic utilities that in a previous generation would have been one time pay shareware. I will be deleting this on my phone and Mac and returning to just using dropbox where I at least understand the value proposition.
Developer Response ,
There seems to be a misunderstanding. Existing customers do not need to subscribe and pay again. Please just use the restore button to unlock Dropshare Pro.
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.
