[prMac.com] 317 Software LLC of Erie, Pennsylvania has released version 1.4 of its innovative FTP transfer system, iDropper(TM). "This is a significant release, introducing Windows droplets based on Win32, eliminating the need for Windows droplet users to have Microsoft .NET installed on their computers," said Dave Scribner, company co-founder. "We have also integrated secure FTP for the first time in Windows droplets. These two features remove significant roadblocks to customer acceptance of Windows droplets created with iDropper".
iDropper makes FTP file transfer a simple process of "Drag...Drop...Delivered". With the iDropper application an Administrator creates a "droplet", a mini-application, that contains within it all the FTP hostname, username and password information. The droplet also contains the destination settings for where the files should be placed on the server, and the settings for how the Administrator should be notified when files arrive.
The droplet is then given to the customer who installs it on his desktop as an icon. When the customer has files to send, he simply drags and drops the files and folders onto the desktop icon and the files are delivered with no further action necessary. Customers require no knowledge of FTP protocols, do not need to install and configure an FTP client, and NEVER need to know FTP login and password information.
While iDropper is a Mac application, it creates droplets for both Mac and Windows users.
iDropper is available from the iDropper website for a full-featured 30-day trial.
"We pride ourselves on innovation and our commitment to respond to requests from our user community", continued Mr. Scribner. "We are pleased with the current version of iDropper and are very excited about its future".
