Address Book

The address book helps you to manage your contacts, making it easier to quickly share your files with your friends and family.

Once you have added your contacts, when it's time to send out an e-mail invitation to share a link, instead of filling out the details manually, you can simply select an address or a group from your contacts and have it automatically populate the receiver field.
