pCloud is a cloud storage for photos, videos, documents and any small or large files without worrying about size limits. The service is available for all devices and platforms – desktop, web and mobile. All your files are immediately synchronized between your computer, iOS or Android devices, so you have an instant access to any updates you make.
The service also has “Upload links”, so receiving large files is not a problem anymore. You can just create an unique link which you can give to anyone to upload files directly into a folder in your personal pCould.
Sharing content is very simple, too! You can create access link to any file or folder in your pCloud and send it to your colleagues and friends. Sharing folders with other pCloud users is as easy as it gets. You can effortlessly modify permissions (read, modify, create, delete) you grant to every single user.
