In order to use Throw you first have to acquire a copy of the application. This can be done by purchasing it through the Mac App Store, available on all Apple computers running Snow Leopard and Lion. The Throw application can be used on OS X version 10.5 or higher.
Throw provides its users with a secure file sending alternative. The receiver of a file must click on the text “Continue to this website (not recommended)” in order to establish a secure connection with the sender. This needs only to be done one time. Next time the same person send you a file this message will not appear, since you already have established a secure connection once.
Sending files using Throw is dead simple. Locate the file you want to send, drag and drop the file on Throw application icon (located on the dock). Throw will automatically copy a link of the file to the clipboard. All you need to do is to paste the link into an email, chat client or SMS and send it to the intended receiver. The receiver must click on the link in order for the file to be downloaded.
Only the sender need to use Throw app in order to send files. The link generated by Throw can be opened on any Mac, PC or Linux operating system.
If the sender or the receiver turn off the computer during file transfer the file will stop being downloaded. In this case you have to drag and drop the file again on Throw dock icon then resend the link.
Some users might experience issues sending files if they are sitting behind a firewall. In order to solve this issue the user has to configure the firewall allowing Throw to send and receive information. Please contact the provider of your firewall to resolve this issue.
At the top of your screen you can locate Throw system tray icon (dog bone), when this icon is black in color ALL file transfers are completed. Alternatively by clicking the dog bone, information will be displayed for each file being transferred. When a file name has a green tick mark in front of it then file transfer is completed.
