    Hi everyone!


    My name is John, co-founder of http://min.us , a new web based sharing platform using drag-n-drop. I'm also a student at Babson College undergrad right now.

    Our focus is on photo and file sharing and we would love to have the MacRumors community try us out.


    Just recently we released our desktop + mobile app at: http://min.us/pages/tools for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android.

    Any feedback/suggestions is welcome. Hope you try it out!

    (PS: I'm a big Mac user myself, the app is very simple but note we will be adding new features soon including Account/User support, Copy-to-clipboard and many other options. Be sure to subscribe to our http://blog.min.us )

    Cheers!

    Excellent! If only you'd start working with RES (Reddit enhancement suite) I'd be able to make a full transition. :rolleyes: Thanks & Good luck, Minus seems to be picking up :)

    either i'm brain dead or actually completely missed that page.. do'h.

    i'm currently using cloudapp (again) but may switch back to minus (and droplr) and back again :eek:

    edit: what are the benefits of using minus over cloudapp for example? I can't find any info on 'what comes with the account', -although have seen you will be doing paid plans soon.

    thanks john.

    Any possibility of getting a new, more Mac-like menubar icon? The "grey" option isn't as dark as other menubar icons. I'd prefer an actual black icon to match. :)
