Since it’s introduction last year, award winning LapLink Everywhere has had thousands of downloads and been repeatedly ranked higher than other remote access products by top-rated technology media. LapLink Everywhere file transfer options use the classic LapLink split screen design and transfer files of any size using a simple, but fast, drag and drop method. File updates are dramatically faster by employing LapLink’s patented SpeedSync(TM) file updating technologies, which only transfer the changes to an updated file, thus saving significant time and bandwidth.

LapLink Everywhere is available for $89.95 for 12 months, $24.95 for 3 months or $9.95 per month and can be downloaded from the LapLink website (www.laplink.com) or can be ordered by calling 800/LAP-LINK.
