FILES MOBILE ios and android

The Aspera Files Mobile app for iOS and Android enables mobile device users to quickly submit content to Aspera Files dropboxes and users.  By fully integrating Aspera Files Mobile with the camera, photo gallery and other apps that support sharing, users can quickly create and send packages on the go with full resolution RAW photos, HD videos, and other large files using the mobile device’s native interface.  Recipients of sent packages are automatically notified when content has been uploaded and is ready for download.
