YouSendIt 1.49.3

Cloud-based backup, sync and file sharing is nothing new, and neither is YouSendIt. However, while – as its name implies – YouSendIt was very much a tool for sharing and sending large files over the internet, it’s now been revamped to compete more with cloud-based sync and share tools like Dropbox and SugarSync.

That’s led to the release of this iPhone and iPad app, which gives you access to your YouSendIt storage folder from your iOS device. And the good news is that pretty much all of the functionality you get through your web browser is accessible here.

You’ll need a YouSendIt account before you can begin – paid-for options exist alongside the free Lite account, which gives you 2GB storage space to play with, enough to get a feel for the service before deciding if you need additional functionality or storage.

The mobile app allows you to both view and manage the files – copy, rename, move, delete and edit sharing permissions – within your storage folder as you’d expect. You can also import files you’re your iPhone in the form of email attachments, photos and videos too.

Selecting a file to view reveals options for opening the file in a suitable third-party app such as GoodReader, plus you can share the file by the clipboard. Some supported document types – including Office, RTF and PDF files – provide additional options you also get via your web browser, namely the ability to annotate your documents using text, images, a specific date or even an electronic signature, all of which can be saved to the document or shared with others via email.

There’s also a Send button, which allows you to attach the file to an email or send it via YouSendIt’s own messaging service, which basically provides a link to the file for downloading or – if you send to another YouSendIt user – collaborating.

Everything hangs together elegantly and nicely, and the app works extremely well – better, in fact, than the PC and Mac equivalents, YouSendIt Express and YouSendIt Desktop App.
