You are an agency, a freelancer or anybody else who has to provide and receive various files from partners or customers? Someone who wants it simple yet appealing?
We hereby present you Royal Downloads – the new, fast and comfortable way to share files amongst your customers or anyone else. We even think that it is the best script for file distribution out there – and we want to prove this:
First of all, we offer a secure option to distribute files. Files are stored securely and users can only download files that are meant for them. If you need him to upload something, change his rights. For easy use, we created three user roles: The admin, the uploader and the user. Pretty self-explanatory, right? (If you have concerns: The uploader is also able to download files.)
You can organize the files in as many folders as you like. Of course, you can add a description to a file or change its display or download name.
Everything is optimized towards performance. We minified scripts and stylesheets for faster page loading times (the original sources are included). If your server supports it, contents are gzip minified for even faster performance. With the current developments in mobile browsing we also included a responsive layout which adapts to your screen size. Image upload of iOS6 is supported.
We mentioned the phrase “comfort”: Royal Downloads comes with a guided and easy installation. We feature drag’n’drop as well as multiple concurrent uploads. Email-notifications are built in, also a preview for images and videos (format depends on your browser; mp4, ogg and webm are supported).
On top of that, Royal Downloads is “brandable”. Upload your logo and you have your very own download manager – great for example for companies.
We hope, Royal Downloads offers the solution to your file distribution problems.
