Not just a file uploader but a very easy way to add some cool uploading capabilities to your app

Reviewed 4 years ago

Time to market without having to build our own file uploader. Also, the full thought out file uploader features that were available from Filestack were a big benefit it allowing us again to go fast and get the features we wanted and needed and not have to spend our resources building it. Plus the opensource code out there is never as good or have as many features.

Pros

Like that it is very flexible in that you can use their storage or your own AWS bucket or another service to store your uploaded files. They offer CD and file transformation. The fun part about the uploader is the control you have over it and the integration with 3rd party providers like Google, Instagram, Facebook, and others. It will also allow you to upload more than one file at a time. It's a very easy service to integrate with any app. We use it on mobile and web and Filestack is always quick and easy for customers to use.

Cons

The CDN and Transformation can get expensive if you have a highly trafficked site so you really have to think about how you use them. The reporting is fine for our company but some might find it lacking.

Great all-in-one file management

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

We use Filestack as a file uploader in our web and iOS apps. It works as promised. It's reliable and easy for our users to manage.

Cons

It feels expensive for what it is, but I haven't found a less expensive solution. It is certainly less expensive than building/maintaining the same features ourselves.

Comparable to the competition

Reviewed 3 months ago

I’ve used Filestack in the past for different web development projects upload storage. I have a few still using them, but have mostly moved away from them since they removed the free tier.

Pros

Super easy to use API and SDK for developers as well as admins setting up the product.

Cons

The cost is always there - removing the free tier option a few years back wasn’t a great move for entry-level customers.

Eliminated my need for file handling code in web-apps

Reviewed 6 years ago

I run a small software shop, and we build small to medium web-apps. Every each one of those require some sort of ad-hoc file uploading. By using Filestack, we were able to remove 1500 lines of code, and 3 dependency modules. We got the crop and other image manipulation for free (which we could add as billable features ;)

Pros

0 backend code. 1 line client side.

Cons

Need for proxy behind enterprise firewalls. Cost.

Expensive.
