Our sister site Filetrip.net has just received some major updates on all levels: tons of new features were introduced, the homepage got redesigned in most parts, all website and download URLs have been redesigned to look more SEO-friendly, read the full story below.
FileTrip has always been an open download center where people upload files in specific categories making them available to the public. For example, we have the largest collection of NDS Homebrew on the web! Let's not forget our collection of skins for download: we've got over 2,600 of those, and many more: save games, Wii backup loaders, PSP hacking tools and utilites, and a lot more for all platforms.
Now, considering the success we've always had with our public download center, we decided to open a private file sharing section where anyone can upload any file that they want, in a similar fashion to the famous and now unavailable Megaupload. Not only we allow uploading of files, but the files you upload can also be watched online instantly after you upload them! This feature, called Upload & Play, supports the following formats: MP4, FLV, WMV, F4V, MOV, AAC, MP3, WMA, M4A, F4A, JPG, PNG, GIF, TXT, NFO, DOC(X), XLS(X), PPT(X), PDF, PAGES, AI, PSD, TIFF, DXF, SVG, EPS, PS, TTF, XPS and any source code file. Files under any other format can still be uploaded, of course, but they cannot be previewed online instantly.
- Step 1: upload your file... let's say, the exquisite new Batman Dark Knight Rises trailer!
- Step 2: as soon as the file is uploaded, watch it online! If you haven't seen this trailer, it's a must watch... make sure to see it!
- Step 3: ... no need for a third step! just the first two! or if you want, you can also download the file. No registration required for that.
During our initial beta period, we are glad to be able to offer free 100 GB accounts to all GBAtemp members and visitors! Quick, get yours before we run out of space ;-) Kidding, we have an adaptable infrastructure: the more files get uploaded, the more hard drives and servers we use.
In order to make use of the new file sharing feature that we offer, you'll need to get your own account... or simply use the one-click login to Facebook! It's never been this easy to use Filetrip: with just one single click on the little Facebook icon, you are instantly connected to our website, and you are thus able to enjoy the 100 gigabytes of free file storage!
Thanks to the amazing work of [m]The Catboy[/m], our newly created PC Downloads section is now the host of over four hundred abandonware and freeware games! Let's not forget the hundreds of apps that have been mirrored and will stay around forever. Looking for MS-Dos? We have it. Looking for a system rescue CD to save your computer from a horrible death? Check our our System Rescue CD downloads.
Because it would be too long to write an entire paragraph for every single change that we have made lately, I'll just summarize the main changes in a neat little list as you like them.
1. File sharing aka. private upload feature now online, upload up to 100 GB worth of files per account. No wait times, no captcha, no popups, it's all free!
2. Upload & Play: immediately after your file is uploaded, it can be visualized online. You don't even need to be logged in to view or download files!
3. One-click login via Facebook now possible. NO information is collected *at all*
4. Newly created PC category. A 3DS category will soon follow.
5. The homepage has been redesigned: more popular items on the side, improved news articles in the center, better placement for side boxes.
6. The whole site now uses new and much more comprehensible URLs such as http://filetrip.net/...ownloads/games/
7. All tooltips have been fixed to better reflect the content behind each link
8. To search for a file on Filetrip, all you have to do is type http://filetrip.net/wood-r4 -- replacing 'wood R4' by what you are searching for!
9. The search engine has been rewritten to provide more accurate results.
10. All file versions on the file page now show as a detailed list (no more dropdown boxes!) with a green dot indicating the latest version.
Now would be a good time to head over to Filetrip to check out the changes and get your own account!
