S4ve.as, A URL Shortening Service For File-Sharing

Posted Aug 31, 2009

Let’s say that you made a song on MP3 and want to share it, but don’t want to IM long links to your friend  S4ve.as is a service that allows users to upload any file.  S4ve.as hosts the file and provides a valid short URL for 24 hours.

Yeah, the 24 hour link isn’t enough time to share the file for an extended period of time, but at least it saves you the hassle of having to upload a file to your own server and send out larger links.  The service was made more for quick sharing.

The best part is that there is no restriction on the file size.  The files are deleted after 24 hours which is why S4ve.as can afford to serve unrestricted file sizes.

What are your thoughts?
Do you believe that this service is actually useful and foresee yourself using it?  Personally I use e-mail for file sending and generally don’t need to send large files.  But there may be some of you out there that need to send massive files and e-mail won’t quite cut it.  Leave a comment if you see yourself using it.
