If – as the saying goes – simplicity is genius, then the gang over at WeTransfer are probably in line for some sort of grant. You’d think as the main partners for our summer symposium Here, they’d be pretty busy psyching themselves up for a day of creative insight and inspiration, but they’ve found time to create an app for their hugely popular file sharing service.
WeTransfer’s rise and rise is in large part down to how straightforward it is to use, and sensibly they’ve not tried to overcomplicate the app either, tailoring the way it works to the instinctive mobile experience. Add in the fact that you’re treated to a carefully-curated selection of wallpapers showcasing artists, designers, illustrators and photographers and you’ve got an app that is as useful as it is inspiring. And, marvellously, it’ll cost you absolutely nothing…
