LicketyLink

The fastest way to share huge files

By far the fastest way to share huge files. Start downloading the file while it is still uploading. It's file sharing for huge files.

Congrats on launching, I'm curious to hear more about how you made this one of the fastest ways to download large files? I always thought your internet speed played a role in that. @markbakker

@abadesi Hi Abadesi, Thanks for the question! Yes internet speed will always play a factor in sending huge files. Unlike traditional file sharing services, our technology makes it possible for the receiver to begin downloading the file before it’s finished uploading.

@astghik_azaryan Currently is is 100% free, but will be introducing a paywall shortly.
This is interesting. I am guessing it breaks the uploaded large file into many small parts like a torrent file and then allows those available parts of the file to be downloaded until there is one completed version? This could knock off a lot of time between sharing large files and I'd love to hear more about this.

@productpearson Hi Ash! Yes that’s the gist of it. We are still working on it, and would love your feedback!

Hi, Mark! What is the max upload size on LicketyLink? Is there a limit? Also, how long do you hold on to my files/how long is the link good for?

@justinotherjohnson Hi Justin! Great questions. Since we wanted to see if there is any interest, there are currently no limits. We are working on it, and will introduce some reasonable restrictions based on your feedback. Happy to hear what you think.

@justinotherjohnson @markbakker Let us know some of the crazy files you end up with!

@markbakker I feel like the most likely scenario will be video. Normal people are capturing 4K on their phones now and I regularly share video files that are 700+ mb. The other big audience is folks who work in creative software. Sending PSD mechanicals to a digital printer for a billboard or video projects for an edit can easily be several GB, if not TB.

@markbakker @productpearson Well obviously... but besides that. :)
Cool idea! Small tip though, users may not want to sign up, due to the insecure HTTP connection...

@ben_winding Thanks Ben! We've been using it as an internal tool for video, and wanted to see if there was any demand for it. That's on the top of our to-do list. If you have more feedback, we'd love to hear it, cheers.
@ben_winding Sorry for the delay Ben! The whole application is now secure.
