Pownce file export tool

If you happen to know what Pownce is, you are probably aware that it’s shutting down. If you care that it’s shutting down, you may have files you’ve uploaded that you’d like to save. 

If all these things are true, then you and I are in the same boat. In an attempt to help all the folks aboard this particular boat, I’ve written a bit of code to export your files from Pownce and save them to your computer. It’s available on Google Code, and you will need to be a bit of a geek to use it since it’s written in PHP.

Here’s a quick screenshot…first you enter in your user info:


Your Pownce info

Please note that the choice in the dropdown will differ depending on how you’ve used Pownce. For me, the “nonpublic” option is the one that worked best.

After you hit Submit, it will connect to Pownce and download the files.


Woo hoo!

This is quick and dirty, since I had to throw it together before Pownce shuts down in 7 days! (Oh noes!) If you use it and hit a snag, leave a comment and I’ll see if I can help.

BTW, if you’re looking for a new place to share files with friends, drop.io is very cool.
