Presence, the remote file access application for Mac, iPhone and iPad, has removed monthly subscription fees for its EasyConnect service and introduces configuration-free setup for most people.

The new release, version 2.7, also improves reliability for existing users. Presence provides Internet access to all a Mac’s files by web browser and iOS app, as well as offering sharing of files and folders with no uploading. (Presence was known as FarFinder prior to May 2011.)

The new release removes the US$5 monthly subscription fee for EasyConnect. EasyConnect users can transfer up to 200MB a month, free of charge. Extra data can be purchased with prices starting at $5 for 2 GB.

Presence costs $40 for a single-user license or $70 for a family license; business pricing is available on request. EasyConnect, if required, is free for the first 200MB transferred each month. Additional data starts at $5 for 2GB; purchased data doesn’t expire. Presence comes with a free 20-day trial period and is available from Flying Mac (

Presence requires Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. Mac OS X 10.5 users can use version 1.0 of Presence, which has fewer features.
