You can instantly access your shared file or information on any device you connect. It's quicker than using google drive, and you don't have to use up your cloud storage space or send yourself links via email.

Sharing content and file sharing is incredibly easy with My Flow. Send a webpage link to your phone by simply tapping the My Flow icon to the right of your address bar. You can also highlight text on a page and click the popup Send to My Flow option. Want to send yourself a reminder? Open My Flow with the icon on your sidebar and use the text field at the bottom to send notes to yourself. There, you can also click the Upload Files icon to send files, photos, or documents. You can also simply drag and drop a single file into My Flow for easy file sharing, as well as share multiple files.

Receiving content with My Flow

Receiving shared files, images, notes and other content is fast. When you send it, a notification badge will appear on your connected devices. Shared files and other content is shown in My Flow along with information on the device it was sent from and a timestamp of its arrival. Interact with shared content directly in My Flow - play videos there, preview photos, or open file transfers in a new tab. Also, you can easily copy a shared file or content to your clipboard and use it wherever you want. Shared links and other file sharing content is automatically deleted after 24 hours and you can clear your online file storage at any time.
