Spymac Gallery — Express Yourself like Never Before
The new Spymac Gallery allows you to express yourself like never before. It uploads massive multimedia files of up to 3GB online using Spymac Disk technology with drag-n-drop ease. Files can be made public or viewable only to your friends and colleagues. Visitors can also comment and rate your new multimedia creations for an interactive experience.
Spymac Gallery uses Spymac Disk technology to make it easy to drag files from your computer to the Spymac servers, where they can be displayed and viewed. Spymac Disk shows up on your desktop as a local drive just as an iPod or other device would, and managing files is just as simple. In fact, Spymac Disk synchronizes with the Spymac site in the background while you work, so sharing and storing files online has never been easier.
Spymac Disk uses WebDAV technology (World Wide Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning), a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol, which allows users to manage and control files on a remote web server. This allows you to create a desktop copy of a Spymac disk on your desktop, so you can easily transfer files from digital cameras or memory cards back and forth. Once your files are on your Spymac disk, you can share those files with anyone you want to. You can manage your pictures, video, music and documents from your desktop without having to know or understand WebDAV or HTTP.

Spymac V now offers the first drag-n-drop website creator for Mac users, completing Spymac’s suite of tools that lets Mac users express themselves worldwide.

The technology is the first ever AJAX based, online site building software.
