What can you use the app for?

Sharing files is a very common activity on the internet. Almost anyone who uses the internet for any length of time has shared a file or two. There are also many ways to do this. Some are more painful than others. Ge.tt has created a way for users to share files quickly and painlessly. There are many different sites that offer a similar service, but Ge.tt helps further simplify the process. Users can upload their file, share it then move on to something else. Their desired user receives the file without all the down time trying to figure out how to get it sent. Ge.tt offers a basic service that many users find to be very valuable.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Ge.tt was founded in November of 2010. It was created to be a real time sharing solution. Based out of Copenhagen, the team remains small (less than five individuals). Employees include CEO Tobias Baunbaek, CTO Mathias Buus Madsen, and business partner Arne Winther. Ge.tt is still very young, but is proving to be a good alternative to other file sharing options currently available such as Dropbox and RapidShare. In February 2012, it was announced that Ge.tt received an investment of €350,000 from Atomico.

What are the differences to other apps?

Ge.tt helps streamline the act of sharing a file by removing some of the cumbersome steps that users used to have to go through. The internet has become a hugely popular resource, and every day people share files on it. Ge.tt allows them to transfer data in real time. The user can quickly add the file and send it to another individual then move on to something else. When less time is spent figuring out how to share a file, more time can be used to get things done.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can sign up for a Ge.tt account by clicking on the elegant blue “create account” link along the left hand side of the homepage.
