What can you use the app for?

LargeDocument is a file sharing service that is designed to handle bigger documents. The user can select one or more files using the file uploader on the LargeDocument homepage. The application generates a file link that the user can share with others. The link gives recipients access to the files immediately. Users can view previously uploaded files. A feedback form is available on the file share folder page so users can share their thoughts with the application’s creators. The application is available for Gmail, Google Chrome and Android devices. LargeDocument utilizes a traditional file uploader that lets the user explore their computer from the browser. The upload process takes a total of two simple steps. screenshot

What is the history and popularity of the app?

LargeDocument was introduced in 2010 by Synergist Scada Inc. The application was intended to provide internet users with a simple way to share larger files online. LargeDocument has not seen much popularity, most likely because there are numerous alternatives out there that offer more features ad tracking options. LargeDocument is practical, but may attract more attention with a few more features and user friendly functions.

What are the differences to other apps?

It is difficult to list any differences between LargeDocument and the many other file sharing tools out there. The application doesn’t include any extra bells and whistles. The user comes for file sharing and that is all that they get. The ability to manage uploaded files is helpful, but not quite enough to make LargeDocument truly unique. Internet users who need a quick and easy file uploader may appreciate the application’s basic design but will likely soon forget about it because LargeDocument seems unremarkable by nature.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

LargeDocument uses a simple design that seems to mimic its service. The user is greeted by a solid black background and white text. As far as practicality goes, LargeDocument’s interface lives up to expectations. There is no clutter, except for a single banner ad found on each page. While this detracts somewhat to the visual appeal of the site, it doesn’t slow the user down or prevent them from using the application.

How does the registration process work?

A new user doesn’t have to provide any information to use LargeDocument. The application presents visitors with its file uploader as soon as they come to the homepage. There are no registration requirements. The application doesn’t offer a login option. Social sharing options, including Facebook, Gmail, Twitter and LinkedIn, are available as well but require a separate account for the user to post files to each network.

What does it cost to use the application?

LargeDocument is available at no cost to all users. There are no subscription fees and the user can return any time they like to upload and share more files. Charging a fee would be a bit much for a service like LargeDocument because of its lack of extra features and user-focused services. The application is very straightforward. Users don’t have to pay anything and no account is needed to share files.

Who would you recommend the application to?

LargeDocument can work for users who want a simple way to pass a file along to someone else online. There are no fancy extras or sophisticated features so professionals and businesses might not find what they need. Casual users who want a quick way to share a file can appreciate the lack of an account requirement. Users can upload multiple files and share them directly to a social network or with a link provided by LargeDocument.
