JumpShare, a File Sharing Tool from Pakistan, Launched

JumpShareJumpShare.com, an online file sharing tool that enables its users to drag and drop filesto share and view 150 types of file formats including photos, videos, documents, presentations, code, and countless other file types, has been launched.

JumpShare, a brainchild of Ghaus Iftikhar – a serial entrepreneur from Islamabad, remained under development for well over year and a half after which it was launched yesterday in Beta version.

JumpShare.com is built around an idea that shared files online should be viewed online, instead of downloading them to your desktop for just viewing them.

Unlike other countless file sharing service providers, with JumpShare users can drag and drop their files to be shared with their friends and co-workers. Who can in return view these files online to ultimately save time and to bypass the hassle of downloading respective software required to open these files types.

With JumpShare, you won’t be required to sign-up or anything. Simply go to the URL and start sharing files. JumpShare (through cookies) will remember the list of files you have shared with friends lately to allow you to re-share them at a later time.

Currently JumpShare allows maximum of 100MB single file to be shared with friends and maximum of 2GB for all the files uploaded by a single user. JumpShare said that they will increase this limit once users’ accounts in near future.

Point to this URL and start sharing: http://www.jumpshare.com

    • They store the data on Amazon S3. Storing 1 terabyte of data (equivalent to 500 users maximum amount for now) for 1 whole month costs just $125, or less than Rs 12,000 (depending on exchange rate). Not expensive at all.

      • It is indeed an expensive project. Users multiply in no time. They will be needing big sponsors to stay in business.
        Anyway, the website is cool. Wishing them good luck!

        • — They will be needing big sponsors to stay in business.

          All file sharing sites have a freemium model. That means, the heavy users pay.

          Quite often, only 1-5% of the paid users are enough to sustain the service for the other 95-99% free users.

  • What about the security of these files we are kind of throwing in cloud ? there are no user profiles or accounts to keep track in traditional way , also i don’t see any ssl etc , or any other security versification as yet , so it would be great if you get an official statement regarding this issue .
    As if this thing is a real deal than I will defiantly prefer home produced service :)

    • Never ever ever trust the service providers to keep your data secure. As we have seen with the Megaupload case, the Megaupload employees could access the uploaded data.

      If you REALLY MUST keep it from being seen by other people, use http://www.gpg4win.org/ to encrypt your files first.

        • I’m not misleading. You are simply confused.

          Do you have to type in an AES password to decrypt and download? No. So, what good is the encryption? If Anyone with the url to the file can download it without typing in the AES password, it is effectively UNENCRYPTED.

          Secondly, the AES encryption feature is a standard feature of Amazon S3, but only applies to the SOFTWARE OR PERSON DOING THE UPLOAD. In this particular case, it means the files Jumpshare uploads and stores on S3 are encrypted BUT when we access them (to download) they are NOT. That is because we do not download it directly from S3 (http://s3.amazonaws.com/blahblah/) but through jumpshare.

          Once again, I repeat: if you have the url to a file, no matter how jumpshare stores it on S3, you get the UNENCRYPTED COPY.

  • Seeing more and new entrepreneurs in Pakistan makes me so happy and gives me the confidence to start my own online firm good job guys :)

  • “Unlike other countless file sharing service providers, with JumpShare users can drag and drop their files to be shared with their friends and co-workers.” LOL really?
