(NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading developer and marketer of software solutions and services for the mobility market, today launched SendStuffNow™ for Windows Phone 7 Smartphone devices. . SendStuffNow is a cloud-based managed file transfer service that ensures the secure delivery of files too large to send via email. On the desktop SendStuffNow integrates directly with Microsoft Outlook to provide users with a secure and easy to use alternative to FTP when transferring large files. With the addition of the Windows Phone 7 client, SendStuffNow users can now manage their file delivery tasks while on the go. The app tracks the status of pending file deliveries, allows additional users to access files that have already been uploaded and accepts photos, videos and documents found on a user’s device.
Leveraging Windows Phone 7’s unique sideswipe user interface (UI), SendStuffNow offers a powerful set of tools for better control of important file transfers between family, colleagues and friends. Once the application is launched, users select the video, document or image file to be shared. The file is uploaded to the SendStuffNow cloud, whist an invitation to download the file is sent via email to the recipients specified by the user. Recipients of the file then click on a link embedded in this invitation email to download through a web browser, ensuring the safe delivery of documents up to 2GB in size. Recipients are not required to create an account, and do not need to download any special software to access files transferred via the SendStuffNow service.
