Editors' review

Emailing large attachments has never been easy, but this new app combines P2P tech with a clean interface to make sharing files or folders up to 1 GB a cinch.

Circumventing FTP servers, online storage and tertiary email accounts, Pando generates either a link for instant messages and web pages or emails your recipient a tiny attachment. When you click on that attachment or link, Pando connects to its server and downloads the "package," as the Pando people call the contents of your attachment. You even have 14 days to grab the "package" before it gets deleted from their server.

The uncluttered interface uses drag-and-drop browsing to prepare your package. You don't have to wait for the user to install the app: a recipient without Pando gets taken on a step-by-step set up that ends with downloading the package. Packages can be forwarded before the download or upload process is complete -- a smart feature, given varying connection speeds. (It took us only a few minutes to grab a 75 MB package.) Other useful features include support for multiple addressees, Yahoo and Outlook plug-ins that automatically Pando-ize attachments, and a record of how many times your package has been downloaded.

Easy to use, Pando could drastically change how files are transferred between small groups of people.
