I have email. I send files all the time. Why do I need Pando?
Pando won't replace your email; it just helps your email do more. Why does email need help? Although email providers generously dole out gigs of storage, they need to restrict the size of a file you can attach.
These days, as we load up on digital playthings like camcorders and digital cameras, we're generating lots of big, fat, beautiful files. The natural thing to do with these is share — ideally through something we know and use every day: our trusty friend, email. Want to email the whole gang your outrageous video clips from "Burning Man," the relatives a 5-minute video clip of your offspring's first tuba recital, or your boss the presentation you've suped up for the last 36 hours straight? Probably can't. Why? These types of files are usually too big to send as an email attachment.
Email, love it as we may, was not designed to handle that kind of load and therefore must restrict it. Pando, in short, gives email a little oomph.
I already have a way to share big files. What makes Pando better?
Ask yourself: "Hmm…does it let me:
- Send files up to 1GB?
- Attach and send whole folders?
- Send files directly to someone's computer - rather than make them go fetch on some Web site?
- Send files to friends even if they're away from their computer or offline at the time?
- Use it with both my Mac and Windows-based friends?
- Send large files quickly and easily without having to install a bloated program with lots of features I don't even need?"
Oh, and is your solution blessedly FREE? If you answered "no" to any of the above questions, you're a candidate for Pando.
I don't even know how big my files are!
No worries. Use Pando whenever you're attaching lots of files, want to send a whole folder (or more) to someone, or if you think a file — such as a home video or large presentation — will surpass the email attachment limit of you and/or the recipient.
Although our software is optimized for large-file delivery, no file's too big or too small to Pando.
