Looking for an easy way to share photos, videos, and other files with your friends and family? GigaTribe for Windows creates private peer-to-peer networks so you can swap to your heart's content.
The basic service is free, but Cheapskate readers can get a three-month subscription to GigaTribe Ultimate.
Just click the preceding link, and follow the instructions. Once you've created your username, use this promo code: P3MCHS.
Presto! You've got a GigaTribe Ultimate account that's good for 90 days. If you want to keep it going after that, it'll cost you $4.99 monthly or $29.95 annually. You can also drop back to a free account, if you prefer.
What does Ultimate give you that free doesn't? Among other things: unlimited simultaneous downloads (versus just one at a time), a choice of authorization levels for shared folders, password protection for shared folders, access to your shared files from any Web browser, and tech support via e-mail.
I've tried lots of file-sharing software and services over the years, and while GigaTribe can be a little daunting, at first, it has some great features: unlimited sharing, unlimited file sizes, and live chat within the client. Want to learn more about the service? Here's a YouTube video that walks you through.
You've got until April 24 to sign up for this freebie. Mac users, sit tight: a beta test version is in the works. In the meantime, do you have a preferred file-swapping solution? Hit the Comments, and share your favorites.
