This We Transfer App it’s the Greatest World Over
Bad App
by Parent Of Milennials on 2019/07/21 12:25
Not user friendly. Can’t figure out how to load photos from Snapseed onto a board. Photos were transferred to Snapseed from a WeTransfer folder.
Useful app but lacks feature to edit notes
by ghans_624 on 2019/07/20 20:30
Good design. Serves its function well. However, it’s missing one feature that I find crucial to it being a part of my workflow: the ability to edit existing note documents. I want to keep a list of places to visit on my travel board but am unable to add to the list once I've created it.
The best web

Very confusing and scary
by nervous with WeTransfer on 2019/07/17 14:40
These downloads are very important to me and I can’t tell if they will “disappear “. Or where to find them at times and then I do? Asking to do and try things without clear instructions and definitions of what might happen. Asking if I want to delete something that’s essential to me, with a push of a button. What happens if I accidentally push delete!!
Not User Friendly
by kflinn718 on 2019/07/16 04:39
This app is challenging to understand and learn how to use. I have not figured out how to save the photos to my phone faster than one at a time. Someone shared 260 photos with me and I can’t figure out what to do with them even though I read the help page about it.

I’ve been trying to download scenes and it keeps rerouting me to the app which never completes the download. Some things just aren’t for mobile apps. Trashing It. Looking for better.
Great way to share larger video files!

Thanks to my friend Joey for turning me on to this app. Highly recommend it.
Very disappointed
by 123claude on 2019/07/10 17:53
I was sent pictures and videos that were dear to me through this app. I saw them once and they disappeared after I installed the app. They were also deleted from the other end. That’s why I give it a zero. Also because I gave it a 0, I could not enter this review. All the nicknames I chose were already taken. Crap!

by Tryingx20 on 2019/06/30 21:37
Many of your help pages have images that are blank, and only the number of the JPEG file you intended to use. Why not be more direct and try to be less cute? For example, “Give a name“ should be “name the board you are creating.” Other “demonstrations “go by so fast, they are truly annoying and not helpful. You really make a leap of faith when you go from downloading files onto a board, and then show a finished product. When I download files onto a board all I see on the board is a series of icons and their titles. There isn’t even a way of ordering those icons; that is of moving them around so they appear in a different order. I have been wrestling with your app for two days and I’m not sure it’s worth it. You need to explain a little bit more thoroughly about the longevity of the boards. Do you end up deleting anything when boards are not visited? Usually a link expires after 90 days, but you were not clear exactly what that means.
Lovely concept
by iloooooooooooooovemusic on 2019/06/26 22:37
Awesome concept. Would be amazing if there was a way to add descriptions to saved content/edit descriptions, see saved text etc
App is useless
by G0rd! on 2019/06/26 18:55
Why can’t developers stay with something that works. Please research Coca Cola, changed the original multi-billion $ product’s taste to Cherry and thought their loyal customers would be happy. Well it was crapp like this app. You have an amazing website solution that just works. So why get clever about delivering an app that does not represent or resemble the original product. If you want to build a successful software company be great at one thing only, be it web based or an app on different platforms. Google will only be known for their search engine period. Microsoft for Office, Windows is a disaster but they keep on making the same mistake. Wetransfer is amazing, so why change a winning formula and build an app that does not deliver the same functionality or wining formula?
Cool concept, terrible usability

Carful with failed imports
by JHS185 on 2019/06/20 23:18
Collect pretty much works exactly as advertised but there’s a big flaw. For whatever reason if your import or download fails, the already downloaded data will build up and take up space on your device. The only way to get rid of it is too delete collect entirely.
Updated Review
by Lamilam on 2019/06/20 14:28
***** All the way Below was my initial review: 1 star = Horrible. Today’s review: The app has improved so much! You can now easily save your photos and even send some! Thanks to the developers for such great work 👏🙂 ****** Horrible app! I had to delete so many personal videos because i couldn’t transfer them nor download them (the app has too many bugs and is too slow). I’m really upset that I lost all this content! I won’t use it ever again. Wetransfer was a good app, this one is to be avoided!
Amazing app.

Just signed on and now have no clue how your system works after reading your on-line material. There is not even a way to send an individual question, just your posted questions. All I want to do is to send a 130 gig file to a specific email address. That’s it. And you can’t even tell me how to do that. Do you even know yourselves?

by aj1010101010101010101010101 on 2019/05/29 20:27
Used to be a great app before the updates! Before you could select pics it’d put it in a zip folder and send it to whoever you needed. Now you have to upload to a board then share a link to the board. Sounds simple and great right? Think again I can never get my pics to upload always stuck on 9% then it creates a link when I send the link the other person can only see 3 pics. Garbage a** app. I suggest downloading a zip file app and sending that way.

Overly Simplistic
by seanismac on 2019/05/27 15:45
The app is very minimal and nice looking. The issue is that in many aspects this app is form over function. When you start looking deeper into the app you realize that there is a lot left to be desired. There is no way to organize or sort the boards you create. There is no search functionality built in. So if you have tens of hundreds of boards, good luck finding the one you want. You have to understand the simplistic nature of the app and the limitations that it brings. Hopefully future software updates can add more utility to this app. Would love to rate it higher!

How I rate WeTransfer
by mcsampery on 2019/05/24 21:01
I hate the new “upgrade”. It’s a downgrade. How is the change any better??! Firstly, I want to know to whom I’ve just sent my video. What their address was, so I can confirm that I even spelled their address correctly. Sometimes I misspell but don’t realize it, yet wonder why I hadn’t heard back from said addressee. Secondly, I want a confirmation that it went through without a problem, or o have to wonder. And I want that confirmation sent immediately to my email. At the VERY least, it should say “SENT!” Thirdly, I want confirmation that it was received by the party to whom I’ve sent it. How about a confirmation too, once it’s actually been viewed? There’s too much uncertainty and worry with this new “upgrade”. It’s like I never know what’s happening with my videos. I just figure they’re out there floating in limbo somewhere while I worry that I’m missing out on another acting job. BTW, how in the heck do I delete all of my old video auditions from my past WeTransfer “boards” I e shared??? So sad.......what DID you do and who decided these changes were enhancements..... 🤮😠
Please change the app so its like the online version
by GabriellaAK on 2019/05/24 17:37
My app is constantly crashing. I open it and it kicks me right off. When I share photos 2/3 of the time the person says the link doesn’t work. They tell me they get a note saying “there is nothing in this board”. There is most definitely something in the board the app just doesn’t work. Also, I really dislike this board thing. I don’t like Pinterest and that is not what we transfer it for. I just want to send people files! Response to developer: I sent a message to support the same day I wrote this review. They told me to not close the app until all the photos were completely downloaded....The app takes way to long to download anything. I have literally never seen it say your board it 100% downloaded. It’s always stuck at about 11%.

Upload stops every time
by poetmessianic on 2019/05/08 19:48
Is it me, or does anyone else experience a drop in the upload process? Every time I try to upload files on this app, it uploads to a certain percentage and then it freezes. The upload just stops. I thought maybe it’s my phone. So I got another phone recently and the same thing happens. Been going on since the first time I remember downloading the app. Has the potential to be a great app. Fix this with an update and I’ll put a 5 star review.

This sounded like a good idea when it was developed I am sure. I am sure this Collect page is supposed to be a version of Instagram, but what I need from this app is the ability to download videos separately to my devices. You can't! Spent hours messing around with this thing and I can download the links to the videos, but not the videos themselves. Fix it!

This app is trash. My friend sent me footage so I downloaded the app. The app wouldn’t allow me to watch the videos and it continuously restarts the downloading process. If you click out of the app it doesn’t save anything to your board so you have to start the downloading process all over again. I suppose I have to use my laptop when I get a chance. Total waste of space.

Great app, will be better when boards aren’t mandatory
by WilWonka on 2018/01/31 01:51
This is an edited review. I initially wrote a pretty scathing complaint about how the “board” system they adopted was too convoluted. At that time, I was in a hurry to send a couple of files to someone to prepare for a funeral. So, I wasn’t in the proper state of mind to handle change. I didn’t want to create a board or anything, I just wanted files transferred. It seemed like an overly confusing process. Now, that I’ve cooled down a bit, I can say I still really love the app. The “boards” aren’t really that complicated and I can see their usefulness for many people. I still feel like it’s an unnecessary forced step for someone just wanting to send a quick file. But, it works just fine. However, the developers responded to my 1st review to say that they are working on a way to transfer files without having to create a board. Having both options will definitely increase the usability of this app and my appreciation of it. Also, I apologize to the developers for being so hasty and harsh with my words. Funeral planning is not a good time to write a review
Useless and overly complicated.
by northpaul on 2018/03/16 03:06
First of all I’d like to say that I use the desktop version often and it is a great service so thank you for that. I just went to the site on my phone to transfer a video and found it saying to get the app. Ok, fine, I thought, everyone has an app so I don’t mind and if there are ads or something that’s ok too. Instead I find something completely different than what I know wetransfer for, presumably trying to start some sort of Pinterest style network to cash in on that style of media sharing. When I want to send photos to clients I am certainly not going to be sending a board because it is not as professional, intuitive and simply not what I want. It was perfect on the website - even the older people I know who are not tech savvy that intel about it can use it and know what they’re doing. This looks like a “feature” that no one asked for. I am not saying I deserve this or you should change it for me - I don’t have any kind of self entitled motivations here but I did want to mention it because I know that a segment of your users will be pushed away from this and I’m afraid that you will try to do this on the website too. I hope you reconsider, or if you really want to make some Pinterest rival that you do it as some other name and keep wetransfer as what we all know and love, which is a simple and effective file transfer service. It is hard to find a reliable service like this so it would be a shame to see it go down this road.
Creative ingenuity
by MilanArtInstitute.com on 2018/03/09 05:57
I recently was referred to this system of sharing files and it has been extremely useful , especially while working with businesses in other countries. I would highly recommend this app , as it has huge amounts of storage capabilities and works quickly. Using this program brings serious joy to my heart as I like to get things done and this multiplies my time and efforts. Thank you for inventing this service. Your friend John Milan
Needs a native ipad app bare minimum
by the beeve on 2019/01/11 12:52
I really wanted to like this app. Ive been searching for a place to put things I want to remember for years, and none of them have stuck. I really like the ui and feel of the app , unfortunately Collect has no native ipad app so you are forced to use it in portrait and hit the zoom button. (i only use my ipad in landscape so this is very frustrating.) Also unless I’ve missed it there is no kind of account syncing so the collect app on my iPhone, and the one on my ipad are essentially two different brains until i text myself a link to join an individual board. This works perfectly if I’m sharing something with a team member or my wife but I’d really like just one place to put stuff and keep track of it on all my devices. I already have a paper account that keeps all my journals in sync why not just make it universal? This doesn’t have anything to do with the app but i dont see how adding by we transfer to the name is necessary. As a normal person who has only heard of we transfer advertised on a podcast or two it doesn’t really add anything to the experience. Ill keep this on my devices for now with the hopes that we transfer continues development on this app. But I’ll just keep throwing junk i need to keep track of in notes for now.
UPDATED REVIEW
by AdGjL16 on 2018/12/31 15:59
UPDATED ONCE AGAIN: Although I still dislike the fact that the pictures are not in numerical order, the app has started to freeze after the initial items have been saved but before the board is created. I’ve tried MULTIPLE times to get it past that point and nothing seems to change. I do NOT want to uninstall and reinstall due to the fact that I will lose all my boards. PLEASE FIX THIS BUG!!! UPDATED REVIEW: I used to love the app with one exception (the random picture order) but now with the recent update I feel the need to drop my original rating from a 4 to a 1 star. The recent update made the app stuck in ‘optimizing storage’ for DAYS and when I reached out to cs I was told I would need to delete and reinstall the app. When I did so, I lost all the previous content. Reloading and now (sorting) all the pictures is going to be a daunting task!!! 😡
Please change the app so its like the online version
by GabriellaAK on 2019/05/24 17:37
My app is constantly crashing. I open it and it kicks me right off. When I share photos 2/3 of the time the person says the link doesn’t work. They tell me they get a note saying “there is nothing in this board”. There is most definitely something in the board the app just doesn’t work. Also, I really dislike this board thing. I don’t like Pinterest and that is not what we transfer it for. I just want to send people files! Response to developer: I sent a message to support the same day I wrote this review. They told me to not close the app until all the photos were completely downloaded....The app takes way to long to download anything. I have literally never seen it say your board it 100% downloaded. It’s always stuck at about 11%.
This is NOT WeTransfer
by JBarn83 on 2018/07/11 22:24
What the hell is this app? I’m trying to do the same thing on my phone as I do on my desktop. Transfer movie and photo files from my phone and send them like I do on my computer. I have large videos that are too big to email, I don’t want to create some board, or organize my files on here. I want to transfer my files that are too big from my phone to my computer or someone else’s computer. I’m not sure what the hell this is, but it’s NOT WeTransfer. Please offer what the website does, you can have all these other options, fine, but I want to transfer from my phone, get a link in my email as I do on my computer to a download link so I can download my large files from my phone to my computer!!! Why is this so hard to do with this app????
How I rate WeTransfer
by mcsampery on 2019/05/24 21:01
I hate the new “upgrade”. It’s a downgrade. How is the change any better??! Firstly, I want to know to whom I’ve just sent my video. What their address was, so I can confirm that I even spelled their address correctly. Sometimes I misspell but don’t realize it, yet wonder why I hadn’t heard back from said addressee. Secondly, I want a confirmation that it went through without a problem, or o have to wonder. And I want that confirmation sent immediately to my email. At the VERY least, it should say “SENT!” Thirdly, I want confirmation that it was received by the party to whom I’ve sent it. How about a confirmation too, once it’s actually been viewed? There’s too much uncertainty and worry with this new “upgrade”. It’s like I never know what’s happening with my videos. I just figure they’re out there floating in limbo somewhere while I worry that I’m missing out on another acting job. BTW, how in the heck do I delete all of my old video auditions from my past WeTransfer “boards” I e shared??? So sad.......what DID you do and who decided these changes were enhancements..... 🤮😠
File Transfer or Pinterest Board
by Khachadoorian on 2018/01/31 02:16
I love the actual desktop web version of WeTransfer. I have Plus and use it all the time. Sometimes I’ll upload a huge file and it shows me 30 mins or so until it’s fully uploaded. So I’ll set my timer and go walk the dog and then I log in on my iPhone to grab the link to send to the client when my timer rings. I’m then left scratching my head wondering why and how on earth this iOS app can’t even do that??? I have to log onto their website.. which is fine.. but why have an app if it can’t do that basic function of seeing your recent transfers and being able to access the links to share?? I guess it’s good for creating boards but didn’t Pinterest already corner the market on that? Yikes.
Should have a simpler option to upload files
by Ghostwhoswims on 2018/01/14 08:43
While I am sure the board and various other options you have, has been made for a reason, I suppose one should also have a option to simply upload a file and share a link. Call me impatient, but I would rather not waste time trying figure out the point of a board and understanding whether the board is located locally on my phone or on your servers, especially when I need the link sent as soon as I possibly can. I spent 20 minutes populating my board and then saw a progress bar that showed “updating” 1 item stuck at 50%. Not to mention the first board that was presented to me had some pre populated junk. Not sure what your aim was. App removed.
Poor Functionality
by not satistfied on 2019/02/06 16:37
I wouldn’t give this app any stars but was required to give it one! Unless it’s just my phone which I highly doubt it! This is possibly the worst app experience ever!!! I don’t know how this app works and the functionality is very poor. Trying to use this app left me very frustrated! I work for Apple in tech support and I’m very tech savvy!!! The developer needs to create a better version ASAP to correct the bugs in this one! I was extremely let down and wasted a great deal of my time trying to view some images sent to me! App kept closing every 2 minutes and I had a to keep downloading the link! Definitely wouldn’t recommend this app or let alone use it ever again.
I would give this update zero stars if I possibly could
by Nashsauce on 2018/01/06 00:42
We transfer isn't dropbox or even drive… It used to be so easy to send a file from your phone. You literally clicked on the video and hit send to the email address of your choice. Now they make you make sharing boards? So that you have to export the file already on your phone back to your phone (which doubles the storage space a video or picture takes on your phone) I tried to upload 4 videos onto a board to share with my wife, and it would only export three of them saying that now I'm running out of hard drive space while exporting. Stupid! Quit trying to make a great app something that it is not.
Great app!
by fgm🙂 on 2018/12/05 22:34
This is really great! All of the videos I have on this app look very similar, and I love how organized I can make it so I don’t have to go through every single one to find which ones I need. Before the update I had some issues but they seem to be fixed now. This works great and the videos I use (3-5 minutes) usually download in less than half a minute. Yay! Overall this a super great app. 10/10 would recommend.
I want my money back!
by pj3708 on 2018/02/17 22:58
I hate this App and want my money back. My videographer has been trying to send me a file from our event for two days. I finally upgraded for $120 and I am still unable to get the file. All I see is something for boards. That's ridiculous. All I want to do is transfer my videos. If I wanted to do stupid boards I would sign up with Pinterest. I want my money back.
Need better instructions
by Tryingx20 on 2019/06/30 21:37
Many of your help pages have images that are blank, and only the number of the JPEG file you intended to use. Why not be more direct and try to be less cute? For example, “Give a name“ should be “name the board you are creating.” Other “demonstrations “go by so fast, they are truly annoying and not helpful. You really make a leap of faith when you go from downloading files onto a board, and then show a finished product. When I download files onto a board all I see on the board is a series of icons and their titles. There isn’t even a way of ordering those icons; that is of moving them around so they appear in a different order. I have been wrestling with your app for two days and I’m not sure it’s worth it. You need to explain a little bit more thoroughly about the longevity of the boards. Do you end up deleting anything when boards are not visited? Usually a link expires after 90 days, but you were not clear exactly what that means.
Old version was perfect
by anastasiation on 2018/07/28 10:28
I don’t understand why you would have to upgrade the app that was perfect. It was simple and understandable. With the new update it creates more unnecessary steps. I don’t want to save or keep albums in wetransfer app, I have my camera roll for that. As simple as it is, people use it to share big amounts of pictures with each other. Mostly through email. Now with all these overwhelming options of sharing it makes it even more confusing. I love the idea overall and I love that website. Use it all the time but that is exactly why I care about success of this app.
Overly Simplistic
by seanismac on 2019/05/27 15:45
The app is very minimal and nice looking. The issue is that in many aspects this app is form over function. When you start looking deeper into the app you realize that there is a lot left to be desired. There is no way to organize or sort the boards you create. There is no search functionality built in. So if you have tens of hundreds of boards, good luck finding the one you want. You have to understand the simplistic nature of the app and the limitations that it brings. Hopefully future software updates can add more utility to this app. Would love to rate it higher!
If you want me to continue to pay for Plus, you’re going to need to update the app.
by ItsDEE4 on 2018/05/12 11:21
It’s not intuitive at all. I sent 19 songs to a client from my desktop computer. Downloaded them from the link to the app. Want to listen to the album - it only plays one song at a time. I could save the songs somehow to my library or find some other workaround but this is not EASY to do from the app. Make it more useful and user-friendly and you’ll have more people paying for Plus. Great potential.
Amazing app for creatives.
by usmona on 2019/02/01 15:49
Finally, one place to do it all from!! No more transferring between devices, saving into separate folders in the cloud that then you have to sort through individually to build project folders. This way, you create your project folders, then drop whatever you need, think of, see, hear. Whatever, whenever! Looove!!!! A++++. TY for sharing!!
Really would like it to be intuitive again
by Incubus5187 on 2018/02/23 23:27
I use the desktop version all the time and its so straight forward. The new redesigned mobile version loses that with boards. The usefulness of the board system is valid but for certain things. When on the go and you need to send files quick, you just need to select files, enter the email of who you are sending the files to, and hit send. Don’t fix what wasn't broken, just add features and make it clean.
Board System
by Hhhhhhh988898 on 2018/02/27 11:24
It’s a cool app and it definitely has been majorly useful, however I noticed bigger files seem to give the board a little bit of an issue. When I upload videos, the board will say “updating items” and will stay in that state for a long time or just continuously, which prevents me from sending the files.
We Transfer or Won’t Transfer?
by afresh614 on 2018/09/22 01:15
I’ve used the desktop version multiple times and have had no issues. With this app that seems to be doing more of a job replicating Pinterest, I can’t even get my video files to go past 70%. If I even do much as go to my texts or open another app the progress starts completely over. Most of the time it’s stuck at an even 50% and takes up to 10 minutes to gain a couple percent of progress. Please find a fix for this soon. You’re a great uploading service, so I would hate to see your reputation ruined on the iOS platform.
Great for viewing we transfer downloads on mobile
by It's to mamma on 2018/12/24 14:25
This apps makes me being able to preview my video producers product before approval. Prior to this, when I received a we transfer link, I had issues watching the video from mobile. Now that problem is solved.
Awful
by everysortofno on 2018/05/24 14:02
No instructions. No easy file transfer from app to music via phone. Must also use desktop. Marketed as quick way to save files but can’t look or listen unless in my browser which is extremely less than ideal considering this is AN APP FOR A MOBILE DEVICE. This app needs to be simplified to work with what it’s marketed for. Phones. Shouldn’t have to be a two device process or a work around in the phone with a list of other apps to download in order to organize the files to there respective apps. Would do no stars but it won’t let me.
Can’t Add More Than One Video
by KylefromtheIL on 2018/02/22 03:51
I tried this app because I use this website on my computer and wanted to send a bunch of videos together from a recent vacation to Arizona. However, every time I’ve tried to add multiple videos to the same or a new board, it will only play the first video I uploaded no matter which video I click to watch. I have deleted and re-downloaded the app 3 times but it never is any different. Every time I try to watch all the videos I upload, it only plays the first one I did. So frustrating, please fix!
Awesome!
by Ridget on 2019/06/14 14:53
I love the link option for sending images or large documents. The easiest way to share without having to login to an account and download. Thank you We Transfer for making my life a little easier 👍👍 (two thumbs up) 🤘
Can’t open files
by poppieseed on 2019/03/17 13:03
I downloaded this app because it is supposed to work with Apple products on the phone and computer. It didn’t open the music files in the app that was transferred from another user to me. It is working for them and all I was supposed to do was transfer the file to the Mac version of the app. Does not work at all. I keep getting a message that it cannot work on my device. If the app can’t open files in the app on my phone, what good is having the Mac version of the app? Oh well, very disappointed. :(
Why is it different than the desktop version?
by frustrated fiy on 2018/06/08 10:20
I used wetransfer to send pictures for a very long time. It’s a great tool very easy to use even for an old non tech guy like me. I recommended it to many of my friends all simon it happily ever after. Now I got an iPhone and added the app thinking it will work same. I thought I was doing so throng wrong until I read this other review explaining same frustrations. Believe me I kept trying and trying but the board feature kept coming and I don’t know what to do with it and why it’s there. Too bad.
CBfromO
by Very addict on 2018/05/22 00:32
Completely agree with northpaul I was in a time Crunch today needing to send a video really quick and thought I would use the app since my video was on my phone and I don’t even know if the video got through or not - there is absolutely no way to tell from the App whether or not your files are even delivered. This app did not even ask for my email address so that I could let me know how things are going. I don’t understand why you would create such a useless app when the desktop version works so smoothly.
Uploads are incredibly slow and stall
by Guesstimate on 2018/10/27 12:20
Uploads take forever especially for video. They stall and often never continue. If you have multiple files they don’t seem to upload one at a time in a queue so you can’t share a board in progress if you are sending multiple items. Users on the receiving end often can’t play the files and get a processing error.
Desktop is far better
by carpen424 on 2018/06/12 20:22
I use the desktop version of WeTransfer often for work. The desktop version is very simplistic- just drag and drop a file, enter the emails and send. The app overcomplicates this simple process with the need for boards, and the fact that I now need to type out an email or text to go with the link provided, instead of the instructions being automatically sent with the link. Love the Website, Not loving the app.
Awful
by egdjfijenfhsijebd on 2018/09/14 23:18
This isn’t Pinterest, why did it change to boards? Now whenever I want to share files they put it on a board and the whole thing is just “updating files” on the sending end, and “board is processing” on the other, can never get the files. It’s a nightmare - really frustrating. They shouldn’t have made any of these updates, you used to just be able to select a bunch of files and send them, that’s what the app is for, it worked perfectly! Really annoying.
Better UI then before, BUT...
by DSMART2003 on 2018/08/26 09:48
I like the new UI, But, the app keeps crashing on my iPhone 6 with 128GB of total space and it seem if the app is closed or crashes the updating starts over, very bad, when you have over 10+ files it needs to be uploaded and it updates a board. Plus, all my videos I take is at the high video rezs (1080P 60FPS), so it going takes forever and week to get them updated it would be nice if it had some kind of icon or some things to identity which files in a board have been updated and uploaded already. Thanks! PS: I’m taking that we can upload unlimited media files using this app with the boards as it doesn’t say in the app or on the app store, their a limit in media size that can be uploaded and shared with others!
Is a tool, not a platform.
by Reidd.it on 2018/07/02 03:47
App user interface limits information available to user. Including account information, settings of interest, and a streamlined sharing process. Does not in any way compete with the abilities their online platform gives. Website is much more useful than the app. The app is simply a little library or tool used to view downloaded transfers.
Keeps picture/video quality high
by Capt Gordy on 2018/10/28 02:40
I run a small boat tour company and I take pics n videos of my guests with various wildlife interactions. If I were to try and send the footage via text or email then the 16 mega pixel footage would be lost and grainy/pixelated. Wetransfer keeps the quality of my footage and it’s all for FREE!!! Thanks Wetransfer!
Need to download but that ain't happenin'
by ItsMeCurli on 2019/05/04 18:35
This sounded like a good idea when it was developed I am sure. I am sure this Collect page is supposed to be a version of Instagram, but what I need from this app is the ability to download videos separately to my devices. You can't! Spent hours messing around with this thing and I can download the links to the videos, but not the videos themselves. Fix it!
Best app for bands!
by Lory Gil on 2018/01/25 04:25
My band uses this app to share recordings of our practices using the Share Extensions from The Voice Memos or Music Memos apps. We also send versions of studio recordings so everyone can listens to tracks and take notes on what to change in the mix down. We Transfer on iPhone shreds!
Needs to be able to receive files to the app.
by Jon Cracroft on 2019/03/03 03:41
In addition to being able to run in the background, the app need to be able to receive transfer files. Currently all I can do is send files using the app. I can’t easily find a folder I just uploaded from my computer (from the same account). I’d like to be able to see the same activity on my mobile device and my computer.
Love the we transfer when using laptop, using app on phone is problematic
by allnamestaken-sonorating on 2019/02/27 23:08
I love the service when used on a laptop or tower. However, the first, second, third, etc times I tried the app on my phone were awful. It’s not intuitive. You’ve got to search and search and get to figure out how to view the file/video that was shared. In only one case was I able to get it to work. Please make the mobile app as wonderful and easy to use as the computer platform!
Email transfer function no longer exists
by Fortunate€ on 2018/02/05 02:09
I was really disappointed that the original reason I downloaded this app, sending emails that were too large to send directly from my phone, no longer exists. I personally have no use for creating boards. FB, IG, Pintrist, etc are already out there for things like this. This move was a big surprise and from referring my friends to this app as a great email transfer tool, well, that is pointless now. Unfortunately deleting this app.
Simple and seamless
by Sammysmithy321 on 2018/11/20 21:54
Sharing documents went so seamlessly. I loved how I was able to send all my photos in one go without having to select only a few at time per send. Plus the boards keep it together so if I needed to resend the group I could.
Does the Bare Minimum
by ChristinaM1288 on 2018/01/16 00:39
Updated: I wish I never did the newest update. This app is the worst. The new boards idea is so stupid. Please just let your users transfer pictures fast and easily like if we were using the WeTransfer website. —— You need a lot of patience and time to use this app if you are sending a large amount of files. This app is in dire need of an update: Freezes Slow You must keep the app open in order to transfer files. The app is not able to send pictures while in the background! This is VERY INCONVENIENT! This app is lacking and needs more functionality: select all/ multiple when sending pictures from a saved album on the phone. WARNING: You can't transfer a large amount of files in one shot because the app will freeze on you. Be prepared.
Upload stops every time
by poetmessianic on 2019/05/08 19:48
Is it me, or does anyone else experience a drop in the upload process? Every time I try to upload files on this app, it uploads to a certain percentage and then it freezes. The upload just stops. I thought maybe it’s my phone. So I got another phone recently and the same thing happens. Been going on since the first time I remember downloading the app. Has the potential to be a great app. Fix this with an update and I’ll put a 5 star review.
Does this even WORK?
by Reen19 on 2018/07/20 01:45
Just spent 1.5 hours troubleshooting with someone who wants to do what everyone expects Wetransfer to do: Just send files! The link is sent and it keeps saying the file is uploading please try again later. And there is no support online with this message so we are stuck guessing what is wrong. Desktop still beats the app. The app is confusing and doing to much. Just send large files, that’s what Wetransfer is good at.
Useful app but lacks feature to edit notes
by ghans_624 on 2019/07/20 20:30
Good design. Serves its function well. However, it’s missing one feature that I find crucial to it being a part of my workflow: the ability to edit existing note documents. I want to keep a list of places to visit on my travel board but am unable to add to the list once I've created it.
Love this App
by Wheatieo on 2019/05/09 18:07
I was looking somewhere to save my favorite steaming movies and shows so I could share with others. I tried typing them in Excel and on Notes but that took to much time and effort. With this app I can go to IMDP rate my show and then I can add it to a board in We collect. Sooo awesome!!!
Bring back regular WeTransfer!
by NickOxford on 2018/11/14 03:07
This collect app is horrible! The beauty of WeTransfer was in its simplicity. I use the desktop version all the time and now I’m left with no way to transfer files from my phone. Bring back the old app! Edit: It looks like WeTransfer has made their traditional service available through their website on mobile now.
Not accessible for the blind
by Azarry on 2018/06/12 11:55
I am using this app with the latest version of iOS11, on a mini IPad4. I am totally blind, and so use Voiceover to navigate the screen. This app is not accessible with Voiceover. The buttons are just being read as button, button, button, button, which is not helpful at all. Also, I have no reason whatsoever to want to create a board. Many of your users seem to feel the same. Either way, now I have to uninstall this app, because I cannot use it.
App is useless
by G0rd! on 2019/06/26 18:55
Why can’t developers stay with something that works. Please research Coca Cola, changed the original multi-billion $ product’s taste to Cherry and thought their loyal customers would be happy. Well it was crapp like this app. You have an amazing website solution that just works. So why get clever about delivering an app that does not represent or resemble the original product. If you want to build a successful software company be great at one thing only, be it web based or an app on different platforms. Google will only be known for their search engine period. Microsoft for Office, Windows is a disaster but they keep on making the same mistake. Wetransfer is amazing, so why change a winning formula and build an app that does not deliver the same functionality or wining formula?
