eSnips is based out of Herzliya Pituach, Israel. The company currently consists of fewer than 20 individuals, including CEO Kobi Marenko. The application was intended to provide users with a convenient media dashboard that gave the user the flexibility to express themselves with the help of digital content. The application currently manages many file types, including audio, video, picture, PDF, flash files, Zip and RAR files.
There are many file storage websites available today. eSnips is focussing on expression through digital media. Each user is given their own space and dashboard to upload their favorite images, videos and other files to their account. The eSnips community can browse each collection to find others that they may like.
The eSnips welcomes users with a fun color scheme that feature vibrant blue, orange and grey. The stylish eSnips logo includes a sideways lowercase “e” laying on its face beside the word “Snips” in white. A search tool bar is presented at the top, center of the homepage with a filter that allows the user to search through specific files types, such as images, videos and more. The blog feed can be found along the right hand side, just under the light blue tag links. The center, left side presents thumbnail images for each featured file. The site is slow and full of ads. There are better sites to share your files.
