What is Jumpshare?

Jumpshare is an incredibly fast, real-time file sharing app. You can instantly share files with friends, family, clients, and team members via email, or shareable link. They can preview 200+ file formats in the powerful file viewer, so you don’t have to worry about installing separate apps for viewing different files.

Everything works in real-time: you can immediately share files without waiting for uploads to finish, your recipients will view those files the moment they are uploaded from your end, and you in turn can track how many people have viewed or downloaded your files right away.

Why are files sometimes added to a new folder, but at other times added to an existing folder?

When you upload multiple files together from My Uploads, Jumpshare smartly places them in a new folder. When you are already inside a folder, the files are uploaded as is.
