FilesAnywhere Lite - Interface Overview


You've asked for it and our team has listened. The newest offering from our team is FilesAnywhere Lite.  Lite is a slimmed down and more easy to use interface for the modern user.

Note: This newest interface is only available for Professional and Enterprise accounts.

The Design


The first thing you'll notice is that virtually everything you need is right at your fingertips.  We've worked hard to reduce the clutter of our previous interface and have provided a fully responsive and more intuitive version of FilesAnywhere.
