DropMocks is an extremely easy to use application that helps users create a library of images to share online. The system is simple and begins with the user dragging and dropping images onto the application’s homepage. After dragging and dropping the image, it appears on the homepage. The user is given a URL to share the image. The user can give the image a title and it is automatically saved to DropMocks. The user can click the new button to start a new image, which resets the page. They can return to any previously added images by selecting them from the Your Mocks list. The system is very effective and offers users a simple way to upload and share images. Images can be just as easily removed using the site’s small trash can icon.
There are so many websites that offer image hosting and sharing services. Doing something different can be a challenge. The creators of DropMocks managed to create something new and unique that is also extremely effective. Although features are kept to a minimum, this works well to make DropMocks an excellent option for image management.
The simplicity of DropMocks is what makes it so unique. Even though the user cannot do significant image editing on the site, they can quickly and painlessly upload any image. Users with no computer or internet knowledge will have no problem simply dragging and dropping their desired images onto the DropMocks page. If the user can use a mouse button, they can use DropMocks.
The look of DropMocks mimics the simplicity of what the site does. There are absolutely no flashy images or other distractions to confuse the user. A newcomer is greeted by a box containing the simple drag and drop directions at the center of the page. When adding an image, the image appears and covers most of the page while a few basic boxes appear to give the user access to the URL for sharing as well as a few other functions.
Users do not have to register to begin using DropMocks. All they have to do is begin uploading images. The URLs are available and they can rename files or delete them. Users who wish to register can click on the small, blue “Sign In” button at the bottom, right hand corner of the page. This takes the user to the Google accounts login page. DropMocks uses Google accounts as its preferred sign in method. Unfortunately there is no other option for logging in. Most people today have a Google account, so in many cases this is not an issue. Those who do not may want to consider creating one. Along with DropMocks, they can access many other Google applications.
DropMocks is helpful, but it is extremely simple. This basic service would need a little more added to it to justify a subscription fee. Luckily, the creators realize this and offer DropMocks for free. Users can begin adding images without signing in. This is a big plus to encourage more people to savor the time saving simplicity of DropMocks.
The main groups of users who would love DropMocks includes those who have very limited computer knowledge and those who are very short on time. DropMocks is as simple as image uploading and sharing can possibly get. Users can get right to work adding images and sharing them with others in seconds.
