The low-down on how to send large videos, audio files, pictures, whatever you want

Updated over a week ago

Our free mobile file transfer apps for Android and iOS are a perfect solution for transferring files from your smartphone to computer, to friends and family, or to other devices, and recipients further afield. You can easily send large videos, audio files, high quality picture collections, and any other file type. The mobile apps are simple to use, and have a "Wi-fi only" option in case you need to protect your mobile data cap from getting used up!

Start by installing the iOS or Android version of the app. While both versions have slight cosmetic differences, the basics remain the same:

  1. Start the app. Log in to your existing Filemail account or skip the login to use our free service instead.

  2. Click "attach files" and select anything you wish to send.

  3. Provide e-mails of recipients, message subject and text (optional).

  4. Click "Send".

  5. You might be asked whether the app should only use WiFi connections to send your files, in case you have a small mobile data cap.

  6. Your upload will now commence. As soon as it's done, all recipients are going to receive a download link in their e-mail.

That's it! See the video below for some additional insight (although the user interface has been updated since the video was released).
