An excellent solution for sending photos and videos in real time

2018-08-01

A software that will change your way of thinking and see the transfer of files in real time.

Pros

We Transfer is a wonderful alternative for our daily activities at work.

Cons

Although we have read in different web forums that security is a problem with this software, we have been able to overcome this problem from time to time, and on the contrary, we welcome the use of this software in our management, recommending it energetically to the companies.

I utilize WeTransfer to send & transfer documents of all sizes to customers.

2018-07-19

WeTransfer is a fast & easy way to send large documents via email.

Pros

I just type in their email & drag & drop the file.

Cons

It would be nice if the email were sent from my email, or if the link were sent to my email so that I could forward it. That's really the only negative I can come up with.

Good for bigger files, very easy to use

2018-05-15

Pros

I like the "drop like it's hot" interface, the transfer works very smooth and the mobile app on iOS has all the functions it needs

Cons

The free version is very slow sometimes as the speed is limited to encourage to go pro, and the pro is a little bit pricey for Polish conditions

An easy to use platform that is free up to certain file sizes thatS allows you to send larger files

2018-07-16

Ease of use and able to send files quickly.

Pros

You just compress your files, type in the email to send to and drag the file from you desktop.

Cons

I did have to upgrade to the next level because of the frequency and file sizes that we send, but it's still affordable and worth it.

Quick and easy sharing of files

2018-09-11

Pros

I like the drag and drop feature as well as generating links for download.

Cons

Unfortunately the download for free uploads is limited to a week or two, which can be a pain sometimes. Sometimes I wanted to send something bigger than 2GB and the price was too much for me, but it was twice or three times only. No other cons than that.

Fantastic alternative to Dropbox

2018-06-16

Pros

Simple interface that lets you know when your file has been downloaded.

Cons

I think a desktop application would be a good option for this, however if you are just needing to send files under 2GB then this is a great resource to have.

It is best to transfer large files.

2018-07-27

Pros

With a good connection it is the best program for transit in external and internal networks, I was surprised the first time I used it, since I got an email with an authorization and a file that had been problematic to transfer for its size in a few minutes was available on my computer.

Cons

Security is not the best, your shipment is exposed for 7 days and anyone can access it by clicking.

Dependable online file transferring with up to 2GB available to transfer within the free paradigm

2018-06-25

Pros

The ease of uploading files and the fact that these files can be sent to multiple recipients from a single source is endlessly useful for projects that involve large teams and lots of file sharing

Cons

The only problem I've ever encountered with this software is that occasionally the time the server hosts your file expires(7 days) before your recipient has a chance to download the file, this can easily be avoided with a payed account but it would be nice to offer some kind of easy reupload feature if you need to resend the same files or sets of files.

Total excellence in video, image and file sharing software.

2018-09-05

This software will open your eyes to the way you send documents online.

Pros

I say this because WeTransfer is a fascinating software that combines effectiveness in the delivery of videos, photographs and documents with quality service.

Cons

In this section I will not comment, as I consider Wetransfer to be a software that revolutionized the way I sent the information I wanted, and all this very easily and quickly, I could not criticize a software like this, or at least, I have not found limitations or negative points to highlight in this review.

It's a free tool to transfer large files conveniently

2018-08-08

Pros

I just go to their website and upload the large files I need to send online.

Cons

The download links expire which is a downside (so it's not a reliable storage, well, it's technically not that kind of software).

A quick and easy way to send large files with minimal hassle

2018-08-29

Pros

The free allowance is plenty more than I could reasonably see needing in the near future, I've yet to come close to it.

Cons

More of a feature request but it'd be nice if you could set the expiration time for the file instead of it always being 7 days.

Great for one time file transfer, no hassle

2018-09-10

Amazing service!

Pros

While I love a usb file transfer, wetransfer has been so helpful for big audio and design files. It'simple and wonderful - don't have to delete or organize files after uploading for transfer.

Cons

I don't have any complaints. The time is limited on transfers, which perhapa could be an issue if the recipient wasn't aware of the transfer and didn't get to it in time.
