We’re excited to announce that our Windows Desktop app has now entered beta and is available for download for those running Windows Vista, 7 and 8. The Windows desktop app adds the ability to transfer files up to 10GB in size (for our Team based plans), as well as pausing and resuming transfers, sending whole folders and a whole lot more. You can download the Windows app from...
New download servers in Oceania and Europe
We’re pleased to announce the immediate availability of two more download server locations in Australia and Ireland, adding to our existing servers in the USA. These new servers will give our customers in Oceania and Europe much faster access to their files, as well as a smoother experience when previewing media files. Customers in Australia and New Zealand are advised to switch to our...
New Feature: Receive files from your website
You can now receive files right from your own website with our new upload widget. This increases trust for your file senders as they no longer need to leave your website and don’t need to know who or what a Digital Pigeon is. The upload form can be installed directly into any page or can open as a window on top of an existing page when your visitor clicks a link with just a few...
Prehistoric Memes B.Z (Before Zuckerberg)
I feel like such an old man. I’m about to begin a sentence with, “In my day.” So forgive me, because I’ve just aged 70 years. But… in my day, we didn’t have hoopty computers to make memes. We had to get out there with a graffiti can. Shake it up a whole heck of a lot, and then spray it over a billboard. And what was the font? My-damn-hand. Not some Arial, Impact, Hell-vetica. Yessir. I remember,...
Activity Tracking: Keep Track of Your Files
You’ve got big files flying here, there and everywhere. You can now get an up-to-the-minute activity statement on your files. Our new Activity Tracker gives you a comprehensive record of the recipients who have previewed or downloaded your files, together with the exact date and time. This is great for production managers, business managers and teams who like to stay up on top...
The Pigeon Uprising
What’s with this whole generation of cat loving cataholics inundating our humble interwebs with cat videos, catvertising and general catness. I personally think that the Kitlers, yes, the cats that look like Hitler, http://bit.ly/2Yx1Vgare are somehow behind this quest for cat domination. So we’re going to combat the cat. Digital Pigeon is proud to present our favourite commercial creativity...
Advertising Wars: Episode IV
‘To make great creative, use the force.” I’m no Jedi Master of Creativity. Nor am I a Sith Lord of Creativity for that matter. But it seems, that to make a great ad the only truthful insight you need is, “Star Wars is awesome.” And in the words of Yoda, one of few cultural references it is, generations it spans. It’s why more and more companies are picking up light sabers and duelling...
New Feature News: Audio Previewing
Listen without downloading Sound production companies around the world are singing our praises. Now you can send big audio files and the recipients can listen without having to download the file. So recipients can instantly listen to and approve your music, voice over, radio commercial, soundtrack, jingle without having to download, even from an iPhone.
New intro video
You may or may not have noticed that our homepage sports a new video to help introduce some of the many features found within Digital Pigeon. Spoiler Alert: This is the first time Digi has been animated, and for the curious, I do all the Digi related graphics with 3D Studio Max (with V-Ray renderer) and for this video a little compositing with After Effects. So that’s how my weekend was...
New beta feature: previews
We’re excited to announce we’ve added media previews to Digital Pigeon. It’s a pretty awesome feature that allows you and your recipients to view images, video (and soon audio) files without having to download them. If you’re working on a project and sending a lot of files back and forth, you don’t necessarily want to have them taking up room on your own hard drive, so...
Mac desktop app v1.3
We’re pleased to announce the availability of version 1.3 of the Mac Desktop app. This release includes the ability to quickly view files you’ve attached to a message, much like Apple’s Finder. The quick view feature makes it easier to keep track of which files you’ve attached to a message. For example, if you’ve attached a bunch of images (IMG_20012, IMG_20013, etc)...
Taking care of business
Did you know that Elvis called his band ‘Taking Care of Business’? He’s pretty much the coolest guy ever…and something else that we think is pretty cool and that we’re super excited about is the addition of our new Digital Pigeon Business Plans. It’s our new top-of-the-line plan specifically designed for creative organisations that need to have multiple users...
