We have seen and used numerous online file sharing services like Dropbox and Google Drive. However, you need an account or need to download a sizable installation file for using their services. While these services are undoubtedly great, they require certain steps in order to start sharing a file with anyone, thus making them inefficient when it comes to instantaneous file sharing! Quack.Space solve this problem with its unique free-to-use proximity-based temporary file sharing service that requires no signing in, or as it says “No nonsense!” You can simply drag and drop any type of file on Quack.Space from your desktop or your mobile devices and it will be available to anyone in your vicinity for an hour. He/she can then access the file by simply going to its website!
As mentioned in the website, this application is not for sharing files with sensitive information. Why? Because anyone can access the files you shared if he/she happens to be near you!

Also it lacks a push notification feature which I can live with, considering the purpose of this service. Nevertheless, Quack.Space does an excellent job of sharing files, hassle free!
Quack.Space does an excellent job! While other similar location-based file sharing services requires logging in, this one comes as a blessing with its straight-to-the-point functions.
