    SendMesendme.io (Landing page has some issues on ios still)

    It's a platform to request files from clients. You send the client a file request via email or DM or whatever, they get a link with no log-in needed to send you files.

    A friend and I wanted to hack together and push our skills a bit. Plus, many of our clients had a hard time sending us files. So we're making it even easier for non-technical people to send files to us.

      Very cool. Been working on a similar approach with my project, http://gumwall.com, as a way to collect photos and notes from friends. "Just go to this link and drag and drop" is easier than, "go to this link and create an account, then search for my name, go to my profile and drag and drop the photos in".

        Nice. Cool project. I'll look forward to seeing more when you have some progress.

        I agree, make it as easy as possible on the users. Especially for non-technical users.

          Yea, I kept thinking of my parents and grandparents. They can email and follow a link, so it should work for most use cases. Will definitely need to observe them doing it the first time though, to see if it could be simpler.
