Download the beta of CrossLoop early…try the new features early

by Tris Hussey on July 11th, 2007

CrossLoop is a simple and easy remote access and control application that I’ve tried and used before…with great results.  I got an e-mail from them this week letting me know that some new features were on the way.  Profy.com beat me to the punch with a review…

So what’s new in this release? First of all, now you can share a file with another user while sharing your desktop. I have not heard of any service providing free file transfer without any limitations in file size or type (you can even transfer folders via CrossLoop as well). Files are transferred by dragging and dropping a file (or multiple files and folders) onto the CrossLoop dialog box. The only possible problem is that CrossLoop does not scan transferred files for viruses - so you will need to scan them yourself when files are received. 


If you are already willing to try out this new version or you already use CrossLoop but would like to upgrade it you can use this link (user name: xlbeta, password: filetransfer) and share it with your contacts because otherwise those people using older CrossLoop versions will not be able to use the newly introduced features. The link will expire on Friday (5 p.m. PST) so you need to hurry if you want to participate in this limited release.

Go and grab the release and give it a shot.  I’ve used CrossLoop successfully to help friends with their machines.  Because it is a small download and fast install, you can get going in just a few minutes.  My experience has been about 5 mins between saying “Download CrossLoop..” and help out.

This new version extends the P2P model with file exchange and can now be used for presentations as well.  I’m going to be installing it on a friend’s mother’s new machine.  I have a feeling that I’m going to need it there.
