DSTRUX is a free iPhone app to share, control, and self-destruct files over web. The app gives you full freedom to choose the time interval after which the shared file will be self-destructed. The app also lets you grant/deny file access anytime to recipient, even before the file gets self-destruct. According app’s description, any file shared via this app is first encrypted and then shared. Also, it gets shredded and erased at the time of self-destruction.
Apart from just setting time interval and waiting for file to get self-destruct, you can also enable/disable forwarding of file to other users. If you choose to enable file forwarding, then app also notifies you whenever the file is forwarded with anyone else including the information about the person to whom it was forwarded. You can then choose to deny him the access any time.
Other than this, no recipient can save the file, print the file, and he can’t even capture screenshot of shared file. If any of the recipient tries to capture screenshot, then he is revoked from his privilege of accessing the file. The app also notifies you whenever the recipient views the file shared by you. The best thing about the app is that you can share files with anyone, no matter they are using this app or not. You can share files via Facebook or email.
