New App: WeTransfer hits the Play Store, allows file transfers of up to 10GB at once


It’s pretty annoying to find that a email to a friend with a bunch of photos didn’t end up sending because of your email’s attachment size limit.

But with new app WeTransfer, you won’t have to worry about exceeding that limit.

The app lets you send up to 10GB of data at once to another email address. The receiving address will get a download link — from there, they’ll be able to download all the photos on their device.

It’s pretty simple, and that’s pretty much all you can ask from an app — that it works, and that it’s easy. Hit the break for a list of the app’s features, a gallery of screenshots and a link to the app in the Play Store.

PushBullet goes a little bit further with their app as they have features that make it easier to share information between devices going a step beyond synchronization.

There is no indication in the Play store entry for the Facebook app that an internal browser has been added as an update which suggests this may be a beta feature that only a subset of users are receiving. Rolling out changes to only some users for beta testing is a standard practice for Facebook on the normal web interface and seems to be used more frequently with their Android app.
