In a world of forward thinking applications, social networks, SMS and loads of instant chat options, we're spoiled for choice when it comes to instantly getting information. It's all about easy accessibility and real-time, and it's no different when it comes to file transferring and sharing. There are several file sharing options out there, but there is always room for improvement and Droplr is a file sharing service that offers a very user-friendly experience. By accessing the Droplr API, developers also have the opportunity to integrate its functionality with other applications.

The service works by allowing users to select a document, image or file they'd like to share, then provides them with a link where friends or co-workers can view or save it. What makes Droplr attractive is the fact that it's so easy to use, links are short and simple, and it includes helpful extras like short links for social networks, view counts and substantial third party app support. Droplr also provides a variety of apps for Mac, Windows, iPhone and iPad, for quick and easy sharing of screenshots, files and more, even while on the go.

The team at Droplr is enthusiastic about supporting apps that would like to be integrated with it, and by providing the Droplr API, they have made this possible. Having said that, access to the API is granted on a case-to-case basis only, as the company is committed to making sure that the applications created using their data will add a significant benefit to Droplr users. This can only be good news for users, as the potential for even better file sharing functionality is at developers' fingertips. Interested developers will need to request access and include information on how they intend to use the Droplr API, the platform their app will be on and the specific user experience of Doplr integration within their app. Further API information is available on Doplr's website.
