4shared has always focused on building ways for people to share files with each other. During last six years we’ve been providing our users with a number of useful applications to make their filesharing experience better than ever before.

Three years ago we have introduced the concept of 4shared SOAP API (Application Programming Interface), which is the idea that everybody could use 4shared components. However, until now it hasn’t been possible to easily do this. Today we are making it so all developers can work together to build new apps using 4shared SOAP API. We offer a simple set of tools that developers around the world can use to personalize experiences and build out the brand new applications.
