Send6 is yet another file sharing service for internet users. This one takes a professional approach to the task. Users can upload their file and add a personalized note to go with it. Users can also have a copy of their message sent to their email as well. Send6 lets users send files of up to 2 GBs each. Their files are protected by 256 bit SSL encryption. The user can add up to six files at once (which seem to fit well with the application’s name). Send6 also provides the user with delivery tracking and the ability to give multiple users access for businesses. Companies can also add their branding to Send6.Show more screenshots »
