What can you use the app for?

Streaky is a file sharing tool that lets users work with larger file sizes. The application can handle files of up to 2 GBs each. The user can also select up to 20 recipients for each file they send. The site requires no official registration to upload and share a file. A delete feature is built in that lets the user delete the file after the initial download. The user provides a friend’s email address and Streaky sends them a notification of the file’s availability. Users can also add an optional note or message to the recipient to let them know what the file contains or remind them why the file was sent. A desktop version is currently available and in beta.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Streaky was created in 2010 by the team at Streaky Mastering located in London. The concept behind the application was based around a need for a quick, easy and painless way to share larger files online. The team put together simple, straightforward tools and a user friendly design to give users an easier way to manage their files. The application has not received extensive attention, but makes a formidable competitor among file sharing applications.

What are the differences to other apps?

The main difference most users notice about Streaky is its completely hassle-free design. Users are not assaulted by obnoxious advertisements and are not asked to provide personal details just to access the uploader and send a file. The process has been refined and streamlined so users can visit Streaky, get their file ready and send it off in almost no time at all. The application is as convenient as file sharing can get. There are no fancy features added, but for a casual file sender, Streaky is a powerful solution.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Streaky manages to pack personality in one simple file sharing tool. The magic is in the site’s ever-changing background. The background shifts through detailed images, some in black and white while others are in nostalgic color. Images of musicians and related scenes cycle through, enhancing the visual experience while the simple interface provides a user friendly setting to work in. Streaky gives users an appealing combination of style and functionality that works in perfect harmony.

How does the registration process work?

Streaky welcomes all users to its file uploader for nothing. The site does not require a registration. All users receive the same level of access and can upload files as large as 2 GBs each to share with others. The user doesn’t have to create a new username and password to remember and can glide right into the file sharing process as soon as they visit the Streaky homepage. The lack of a registration eliminates some professional features, but gives the average internet user a tool that is as convenient as it gets.

What does it cost to use the application?

Streaky is available to all internet users for free. There are no subscription fees and no registration required. Everyone receives access to all current features and file size restrictions. A small fee for a larger file size option might be appealing to some users, but most are likely to use Streaky for personal or casual purposes so free access to the site’s tools is likely to be a big draw for many.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Streaky is an excellent file sharing tool for anyone who sends files that are smaller than 2 GBs. It is primarily geared towards casual and non-professional users because of the lack of monitoring and business features. Users can appreciate the slideshow displayed in the background while uploading files and sending them to up to 20 others. The simple file uploader streamlines the process and lets the user add a personal note to go with the file.
