Location Enabled File Sharing

Drop.io

Drop.io is a file sharing / storing site that allows users to store and share pictures, videos, audio, documents etc. without having to register or give an e-mail address. Drop.io utilises Google Maps so that users can add a location to an uploaded file.

So why would you need to associate a file that exists virtually in cyberspace? Drop.io has these suggestions:
  • Build a game
  • Enhance a geocaching event
  • Create location-specific content for special guests (everyone attending your concert, perhaps?)
  • Create public spots to share memories
  • Provide an alternative to URLs (instead of something like drop.io/klkvas2, try "go to the front door of your house," plus, it's a lot easier to remember "the corner of 23rd and Broadway" than a URL).
