Waste of space

Downloaded the app in order to download a photo set, but apparently the file type is not supported.
Not recommended
by CqZ2 on 2020/07/10 03:01
This ap never worked for me or any of the people I worked with. No one was able to view each other’s material, and there is a continual $7 a month charge if you don’t delete your account.
Waste of time!

Terrible Phone App
by Big Mikey Money on 2020/07/05 17:38
I think it’s ridiculous that I can’t share a file from my collect board to my phone. Every other storage app will allow you to download a video mp4 directly to your photo library on your phone but yours doesn’t. This is a huge inconvenience for your users. I will not endorse your product or suggest it to anyone due to this flaw in your infrastructure.

Download error
by Imani KC on 2020/07/02 01:43
It told me all the files were downloaded and they all show up in the single files folder. When I click on the files none of them are actually there and it gives me an error message that says “oops something went wrong.” Now, the link has expired for my files and it appears as though the files are downloaded but in actuality THEY ARE NOT!
Don’t use for anything important
by But in the end on 2020/06/30 23:24
It sent multiple emails to the person I was sending it to for one file transfer, every time I tried to transfer. And just found out all my audition videos I sent out were not viewable with some way the files are being encoded to transfer. Who needs money anyways when all the other jobs in the world are closed because of a pandemic.

Organization for the chronically disorganized
by NTHKU on 2020/06/17 02:38
I really have a problem getting everything organized in a place. Not only that but getting things organized in such a way so that I actually use a system to categorize & go back and use it regularly?! I have finally found peace, it only costs me $9 a month but whatever.
Useless
by yakizakana on 2020/06/12 16:15
This app wouldn’t download pics and I lost the pics that were sent to me. I asked an experienced “collect” user for help and he said he stopped using this platform. I will cancel.
Absolutely Terrible

Search feature?
by Sake314 on 2020/06/08 03:10
This is a pretty great app. I have a lot of boards so it is difficult to find the one I’m looking for. It would be great if the boards could be sorted and searched for by name.

It’s good, but if you’re a wetransfer plus customer, why dont you get collect pro
by Update your app Snowbird! on 2020/06/04 20:48
It’s a good service and a good idea. But if you’re a Wetransfer plus customer, why dont you get collect pro? At least as a trial? Seems like a bad biz tactic to me to brand together and then not offer a package deal.
Not A Good First Impression
by TDRock on 2020/06/04 18:59
Yesterday was my first time using this app. I needed to send a number of files - both photos and videos - to a client. The client requested that I use WeTransfer. All my files were on my iPhone, this app is where I was directed to WeTransfer from my phone (Due to my profession I send and receive photo files all the time so I am well acquainted with using WeTransfer service on a computer. This was a first trying to do it from my phone). I started trying to send at 7pm, the files were due by 9pm. I did not make the deadline. App kept having errors and freezing intermittently. App also lost the carefully curated order that I had the files in. So I tried to make image notes but I only made a few because that process was also too slow and too cumbersome. I thought that was the point of the Boards was to be able to put things in order like a moodboard? Not only did it not preserve the order in which the files were uploaded there was no fast and easy way to put the files in the order in which I wanted. Nothing was fast nothing was easy. The app might be great if I had time to sit and learn and figure it out but it certainly was not intuitive or fluid for a first use. I paid for Collect Pro just in case I needed it because of the files that I was sending. But needless to say I won’t be keeping the subscription I can’t imagine I would be trying to use this app again.

Our photographer used this app for us the download the pictures. Saving pictures individually on our phones works but you gotta save 600+ pics, it’s not practical to save it one by one because the “select all” and “export” feature doesn’t work. Nothing happens on the screen.

Poor Design and Functionality
by Consumer for Tears on 2020/05/18 08:29
The design and functionality of this app is poor. Whether a person is highly skilled at video programs or not, the app which promotes buying a higher level, should be user friendly. The downloading of files commencing with the email in which they’re received - does not create a temporary folder to find said video. After repeated attempts to download, it’s clear that it’s not a one, two, three type ease to retrieve a video file. In short, when a WeTransfer is sent to me, I cringe every time.
App needs to be fixed
by Tense Uprising on 2020/05/18 00:01
Every time I go to download a file, it goes up to 50% and then it stops! I even have the pro version so this shouldn’t be happening, hours wasted and hundreds of files wasted

Really Wanted to Like This But...
by BlackPearlie on 2020/05/14 08:17
...the shiny, cool images in the description are not what you see in reality. I just saved 3 news clippings, then opened the app. What did I see? 3 lonely post-it notes looking like they were from the 1980s floating in blank space — and titles that look like the long, tedious passwords we’re all supposed to use, but never do. Not offered an option during save to add/change titles on clippings, so that’s one problem. Another is editing them. I don’t think you can. Maybe the app is packed with wonderful features that will transform the universe. I dunno - the clunky, poorly thought out user interface was enough to put me off of this one. It’s like buying a fast car but hooking it to a depressed burro to drag down the street. I have other WeTransfer apps — and they’re afflicted with the same problem: good, even great apps hobbled by insufficcient thought into the user experience. Pity.
Not happy
by dqidnfha on 2020/05/13 17:46
So you just decide to delete the app and everyone’s photos/boards with no heads up? Terrible. I expected more - at a day’s notice that we need to pull all our content.

by JackVinny on 2020/05/06 20:39
One day I had WeTransfer as a mobile app that worked just like the web platform. The next day I updated the app and I found it impossible to send a file from my mobile. I used Dropbox. Then after another update I thought you’d get the idea, but it’s still useless. Why don’t you want me to use your product for file transfers? I’ve been using Dropbox from my mobile. What are you folks thinking?

I have tried over two years to send content through this app multiple times. It has not worked for me one. Not ONCE.

It’s so overly complicated for something that really should be so simple and user friendly. I would not recommend this to anyone

Best app for collecting items into boards
by Jasondavis2009 on 2020/04/18 15:38
As a programmer and web developer I was working on my ideal app to store collections like this and no other app that exist was good enough for me. Collect hits almost all my needs though and the UI and UX is awesome. Very nice share card integration to easily add images, bookmarks, files, nite, you name it to any existing board or even create a new board without even opening the app! My only issue is the price is a little to high for what I would like to pay. Would love to see a lifetime subscription for like $100 or something or else make the monthly cost like $1.99. Other than that this app is currently the best of its kind and I use it daily! Thanks

by Strider61 on 2020/04/09 05:15
Ridiculous- I can send a 4 minute video in texting that anyone on an IPhone can watch instantly but it takes over and hour to load here. This just happened. Load times I never imagined in this day and age. Reminds me of dial-up in 2005. Next a 7:40 video has been loading for 2 hours - and it’s barely started- no instructions or advice on how to optimize- Honestly I feel this is terrible. At this point I’m very frustrated - feel I’ve been conned and wish I’d never tried this.
What happened to the simple wetransfer?
by Judelgado on 2020/04/08 15:16
New icon on my screen. Don’t know when I downloaded “collect”, for my surprise it is a very complex version of wetransfer with a lot of stuff I did not ask for. Why are you forcing me to have another app that does exactly other iOS apps already do. Very unsatisfying update.
Stupid Update
by Yinao321 on 2020/04/08 00:24
This new update is absolutely stupid. I am very disappointed because now its almost impossible me to download my files from links that people send me. Before when i would click the link it would automatically open up the app and ask if I want to download my files but now it opens up the app store even if my app is downloaded. I dont know how to get it back to normal I just have a bunch of links that send me in a loop but never allow me to download onto the app like I used to. Please fix this or I going to have to cancel my subscription.

It’s super user friendly and allows me to keep them all organized into different boards just like Pinterest! Also the bonus is all of my favorite workout videos can be saved too for easy access while at the gym!Thank you so much for creating this app.

Review
by LAE69 on 2020/03/31 02:48
I have the WeTransfer Pro Account and the Collect app has a major bug with resetting passwords. When requesting to reset the password the email link never showed up in my gmail account. I had to reach out to their technical support team and they are not helpful at all. After a series of back and forth emails I was informed that I had to fill out a detailed report showing them screenshots of the steps I took when trying to reset my password. I finally got the same person and he sent me a reset link manually and stated “when their emails are rejected by a mail server, their mail server puts the user’s email on a bounce list.” And this is why I do not see a reset link from We Transfer. When I finally reset my password, with the link that was manually sent to me, I lost all my media on their boards. I sent the representative in tech support an email, if I cannot get my media files back, I want a refund. Another issue not able to sync my WeTransfer account with the Collect app on my laptop with my iPhone and am not sure if WeTransfer can operate on OS and Windows operating systems at the same time. This app is not worth purchasing. It’s better to use their free account.

I paid a guy on YouTube to make me a lyric video and he sent it to me on this and it worked at first. Then I went back to upload it and it says it’s expired. Wouldn’t be a problem if he hadn’t of deleted the file on his computer. I want to at least be reimbursed for this. I paid good money for that video and I just can’t have it?

2 weeks and still not uploaded to board
by Deity454 on 2020/03/12 05:47
Went to a buddy’s wedding. Shot a few fun videos. Added to a board. Thought they’d be up in a few hours. Set my buddy a link. 2 weeks later he said there was nothing there. Went to board...realized, you need to stay on the page with the app open while it spends hours uploading. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Reorganization Feature and Add Sections
by Ggwestwood on 2020/03/11 22:57
You guys should allow users to organize their saves how they want using either drag and drop or oldest to newest. There should also be a section feature for certain boards as well. However, overall, this app is decent.
Upload not finalizing
by Paul v A on 2020/03/10 09:00
Creating Board and adding pictures was easy ... but syncing to the cloud does not work well. I tried to upload ±500 pictures / 0.5gb, over a good wifi connection, using a premium We-Connect account. Sometimes, the app suddenly uploads 100 pictures in 10 minutes ... but mainly it seems to stall. After 20 hours, I am stuck at 84%-95% uploaded (different result for different boards)
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.

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.
Not A Good First Impression
by TDRock on 2020/06/04 18:59
Yesterday was my first time using this app. I needed to send a number of files - both photos and videos - to a client. The client requested that I use WeTransfer. All my files were on my iPhone, this app is where I was directed to WeTransfer from my phone (Due to my profession I send and receive photo files all the time so I am well acquainted with using WeTransfer service on a computer. This was a first trying to do it from my phone). I started trying to send at 7pm, the files were due by 9pm. I did not make the deadline. App kept having errors and freezing intermittently. App also lost the carefully curated order that I had the files in. So I tried to make image notes but I only made a few because that process was also too slow and too cumbersome. I thought that was the point of the Boards was to be able to put things in order like a moodboard? Not only did it not preserve the order in which the files were uploaded there was no fast and easy way to put the files in the order in which I wanted. Nothing was fast nothing was easy. The app might be great if I had time to sit and learn and figure it out but it certainly was not intuitive or fluid for a first use. I paid for Collect Pro just in case I needed it because of the files that I was sending. But needless to say I won’t be keeping the subscription I can’t imagine I would be trying to use this app again.
Need repeat option
by ken vue on 2019/08/01 14:33
I hate the fact that I have to unlock my iPhone just to hit play again every time my project is done playing. I listen to my projects throughout the day while I’m at work and I work at a restaurant so I have to wash my hands unlock my phone just to press play every like 4 mins. It would make my life so much easier is I could just hit repeat and it plays my project over and over again. My productivity would go up, and my stress would go down! Hope you guys add repeat feature. Thanks! Oh and if there’s already a way to repeat a project please let me know lol. Thanks!

I have the WeTransfer Pro Account and the Collect app has a major bug with resetting passwords. When requesting to reset the password the email link never showed up in my gmail account. I had to reach out to their technical support team and they are not helpful at all. After a series of back and forth emails I was informed that I had to fill out a detailed report showing them screenshots of the steps I took when trying to reset my password. I finally got the same person and he sent me a reset link manually and stated “when their emails are rejected by a mail server, their mail server puts the user’s email on a bounce list.” And this is why I do not see a reset link from We Transfer. When I finally reset my password, with the link that was manually sent to me, I lost all my media on their boards. I sent the representative in tech support an email, if I cannot get my media files back, I want a refund. Another issue not able to sync my WeTransfer account with the Collect app on my laptop with my iPhone and am not sure if WeTransfer can operate on OS and Windows operating systems at the same time. This app is not worth purchasing. It’s better to use their free account.
Wow
by aKaFaMouS on 2020/01/28 19:33
As a life long artist I hope I have the experience to realize when I come across a gem. I think I have found exactly that in paper. Kudos to the developer. I’m blown away by the ease and simple use of this app. I rarely write a review but feel compelled to do it simply because this is an incredible piece of techno. I would like to thank the creators who obviously have thought out and implemented a great design. I am purchasing the pro edition forthwith something I also rarely do. Cannot wait to use all the tools available on this awesome tool. Someone deserves praise for bringing this all together . Even someone whose not necessarily an art enthusiast can pick this up and create just about any type of visual media. Keep up the great work it’s appreciated. I have To go got many great ideas bouncing around in my head that I need to get started on.
Really Wanted to Like This But...
by BlackPearlie on 2020/05/14 08:17
...the shiny, cool images in the description are not what you see in reality. I just saved 3 news clippings, then opened the app. What did I see? 3 lonely post-it notes looking like they were from the 1980s floating in blank space — and titles that look like the long, tedious passwords we’re all supposed to use, but never do. Not offered an option during save to add/change titles on clippings, so that’s one problem. Another is editing them. I don’t think you can. Maybe the app is packed with wonderful features that will transform the universe. I dunno - the clunky, poorly thought out user interface was enough to put me off of this one. It’s like buying a fast car but hooking it to a depressed burro to drag down the street. I have other WeTransfer apps — and they’re afflicted with the same problem: good, even great apps hobbled by insufficcient thought into the user experience. Pity.
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.
Best app for collecting items into boards
by Jasondavis2009 on 2020/04/18 15:38
As a programmer and web developer I was working on my ideal app to store collections like this and no other app that exist was good enough for me. Collect hits almost all my needs though and the UI and UX is awesome. Very nice share card integration to easily add images, bookmarks, files, nite, you name it to any existing board or even create a new board without even opening the app! My only issue is the price is a little to high for what I would like to pay. Would love to see a lifetime subscription for like $100 or something or else make the monthly cost like $1.99. Other than that this app is currently the best of its kind and I use it daily! Thanks
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%.
Resentful
by N0vicane9 on 2019/10/07 09:46
I hate leaving reviews because it's a waste of time, but my frustration gets the better of me. I sincerely resent the fact that this app puts up countless road blocks to simply downloading the files I've received via wetransfer. I've read prior criticism of the app's complete deviation from wetransfer's purpose and simplicity. And I see not much feedback has been taken to heart. I want to download a video...I want to download a photo. I don't want to create a board, or copy to a photo which isn't my photo library but instead some kind of new folder or...I don't even know! This app is confusing and overbearing and useless and I'm so frustrated at the developers for not getting it already. Start listening to users and for goodness sake... Keep it simple!
This app ruins the simplicity of wetransfer
by eskimorider on 2019/09/06 21:35
I really love wetransfer in the browser because it is super simple and artistic. When someone receives a wetransfer link, even if they haven’t used it before, even my grandma, they know exactly what to do with it. But on the phone all of a sudden you have to navigate this Pinterest like app with multiple steps to simply save things on device. I agree with the other reviews here, I don’t really need or want this extra functionality. Maybe it was added so the app is easier to monetize. I’m sure Collect has its uses for other people, but when it’s bundled together with wetransfer it feels forced down our throats. Maybe it could be split into separate apps. I’m a fan of wetransfer - please keep it simple!
Hands Down My Most Utilized App!
by TolleyMM on 2020/04/02 18:36
I seriously searched for a long time to find a way to organize all of my screenshots and things I wanted to remember to get them out of my camera roll...I thought I was going to have to create an app somehow myself until FINALLY I found an app for it! It’s super user friendly and allows me to keep them all organized into different boards just like Pinterest! Also the bonus is all of my favorite workout videos can be saved too for easy access while at the gym!Thank you so much for creating this app.
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????
My Pictures Stopped Loading fast after I chose to go pro
by MissJay BLESSED on 2020/01/29 23:45
I emailed pictures to a client of mine who states that only 17 pictures were received out of the 70 pictures that were taken and added to the “board”. I’ve been downloading the pictures for 4 days now and still.. nothing. It’s been stuck on 67% upload. 🙁 and this is after I deleted the first board that took too long to load and started over.
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.
Lost files
by im_sad4444 on 2019/09/04 03:26
I recently got a new device and wanted my scanned film photos on it. Since now, I have been keeping them almost exclusively on this app as that is how my photo lab sends them to me, which was probably my first mistake. Since there is account syncing feature, I had to manually send links to myself through AirDrop. Unfortunately, after only successfully uploading, sending, and downloading one board, all other boards I attempted to send not only failed to send but disappeared from both devices. I don’t have these files anywhere else, and as these are film photos I either have lost the negatives or will need to pay to have them scanned again. I blame myself for placing so much trust in this app.
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.
Greatest app
by clmc9811kc33 on 2020/01/22 13:06
So far I’ve had no issues storing any of my photos and songwriting I’ve recorded freestyle and or previous idea recordings that I’ve saved and come back to finish at a later date. Anyways it’s a great way to keep my documents together and still have room to do more.. thank you guys for the app it’s also... I just wish you guys offered copyrights if the items or being shared without my knowledge. But so far I have not had that issue so thank you guys again.
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.
Below Average
by QueenJaimi on 2019/09/10 15:04
It’s a good idea but it hardly ever works. If anyone uploads anything to a board I’m never able to save it or share it. It never uploads all the way and we can never tell what is missing or what got uploaded. If this app worked it would actually make my life easier but unfortunately it does not work that well with uploading. I usually end up having to link up with someone and airdrop to them or if I’m downloading I will have to download each picture one by one which defeats the purpose of the app altogether and is extremely time-consuming and frustrating. If anyone knows an app that works well please share!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
My Review
by lananicxle on 2020/01/09 03:55
I love how fast it is to upload photos on this. I do believe that uploading videos should be faster. I feel like we should be able to upload things without WiFi for people who don’t have internet access because all I have is data. It’s way faster than Dropbox when all you have is data & this is better than Google Drive too.
Great App! Here’s some recommendations
by maddynn7 on 2019/08/30 14:31
As someone who has thousands of notes in Evernote, I really love this app because of the visual component, through boards, that it brings. Some suggestions to make it perfect : I would really love a dark mode iPad app would be great with easy account syncing Being able to clip full articles instead of just the link, like Evernote’s clipping function. Thank you devs for you hard work!
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.
Terrible download speed when I works
by j99887766 on 2019/08/14 22:40
Trying to share items with a friend and the only value this app brings is frustration and anger. Most of the time when I click on a file to download it immediately responds with “Download failed. Try again”. No further info. Repeat repeat repeat does not work. Try different network try vpn try cellular try different device ... nothing. On the RARE occasion download starts it ends up being slower that old school dialup. And there is no guarantee it will complete before stalling without notice. It is frustrating, aggregating and impossible to use.
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.
Organization for the chronically disorganized
by NTHKU on 2020/06/17 02:38
I really have a problem getting everything organized in a place. Not only that but getting things organized in such a way so that I actually use a system to categorize & go back and use it regularly?! I have finally found peace, it only costs me $9 a month but whatever.
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!!
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.
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.
Terrible
by Yankeebrat on 2019/08/13 20:23
Any download that’s more than 10 pictures will take multiple attempts to fully download to a board. This happens even on a strong Wi-Fi signal or strong data signal. Sometimes a download will get to 95% then never complete also. Very frustrating when I’m trying to use photos I’ve PURCHASED and can’t.
Stupid Update
by Yinao321 on 2020/04/08 00:24
This new update is absolutely stupid. I am very disappointed because now its almost impossible me to download my files from links that people send me. Before when i would click the link it would automatically open up the app and ask if I want to download my files but now it opens up the app store even if my app is downloaded. I dont know how to get it back to normal I just have a bunch of links that send me in a loop but never allow me to download onto the app like I used to. Please fix this or I going to have to cancel my subscription.
A media and record keepers dream
by bbjggjj on 2020/04/01 19:22
I’m in media and writing but struggle with tech. I can upload everything so easily and share it so well. I do wish I had tie ability to stop sharing a link. Otherwise great app. Also, can I add friends? That would be cool. I’d like to colab on the board with members who also have the app but didn’t see how
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.
Great response to my suggestions
by Lplath22 on 2020/02/08 16:53
Great app... letting me know there thoughts about feature changes and improvements... a quick suggestion for us as reviewers... have you ever thought about instead of saying something is bad or not good, asking questions and praising the developers for their hard work?!
App Name📲 What is it Exactly???
by Eri143 on 2019/12/13 19:53
🤷🏻‍♀️ I would like to tell others about this, but your app name ...umm... is not exactly clear. 🧐 Is it “Collect”? The icon says WE so is it “We Collect”?? Or is it the thing you want people to pay for? “Collect Pro”??? Sooooo confusing & can we continue using this WITHOUT PAYING or is it one of those “FREE Apps” that are not really free 🙄 If I can continue using this as it is, then it’s great & I hope that’s the case and I haven’t just wasted my time with this app
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!
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.
great if we could organize boards
by Seasandfun on 2019/09/03 16:24
I’ve been using the app to store photos in various boards unfortunately it appears that the boards aren’t in alphabetical order. also unable to manually rearranged the order. seems to be based on the last usage of the board so it’s difficult to find things that I’ve saved. i’ve suspended usage of the app for now keeping an eye on it rating a three for now.
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. :(

This ap never worked for me or any of the people I worked with. No one was able to view each other’s material, and there is a continual $7 a month charge if you don’t delete your account.

Terrible Phone App
by Big Mikey Money on 2020/07/05 17:38
I think it’s ridiculous that I can’t share a file from my collect board to my phone. Every other storage app will allow you to download a video mp4 directly to your photo library on your phone but yours doesn’t. This is a huge inconvenience for your users. I will not endorse your product or suggest it to anyone due to this flaw in your infrastructure.

by Imani KC on 2020/07/02 01:43
It told me all the files were downloaded and they all show up in the single files folder. When I click on the files none of them are actually there and it gives me an error message that says “oops something went wrong.” Now, the link has expired for my files and it appears as though the files are downloaded but in actuality THEY ARE NOT!
Don’t use for anything important
by But in the end on 2020/06/30 23:24
It sent multiple emails to the person I was sending it to for one file transfer, every time I tried to transfer. And just found out all my audition videos I sent out were not viewable with some way the files are being encoded to transfer. Who needs money anyways when all the other jobs in the world are closed because of a pandemic.

Organization for the chronically disorganized

It’s good, but if you’re a wetransfer plus customer, why dont you get collect pro
by Update your app Snowbird! on 2020/06/04 20:48
It’s a good service and a good idea. But if you’re a Wetransfer plus customer, why dont you get collect pro? At least as a trial? Seems like a bad biz tactic to me to brand together and then not offer a package deal.
Not A Good First Impression
by TDRock on 2020/06/04 18:59
Yesterday was my first time using this app. I needed to send a number of files - both photos and videos - to a client. The client requested that I use WeTransfer. All my files were on my iPhone, this app is where I was directed to WeTransfer from my phone (Due to my profession I send and receive photo files all the time so I am well acquainted with using WeTransfer service on a computer. This was a first trying to do it from my phone). I started trying to send at 7pm, the files were due by 9pm. I did not make the deadline. App kept having errors and freezing intermittently. App also lost the carefully curated order that I had the files in. So I tried to make image notes but I only made a few because that process was also too slow and too cumbersome. I thought that was the point of the Boards was to be able to put things in order like a moodboard? Not only did it not preserve the order in which the files were uploaded there was no fast and easy way to put the files in the order in which I wanted. Nothing was fast nothing was easy. The app might be great if I had time to sit and learn and figure it out but it certainly was not intuitive or fluid for a first use. I paid for Collect Pro just in case I needed it because of the files that I was sending. But needless to say I won’t be keeping the subscription I can’t imagine I would be trying to use this app again.

Our photographer used this app for us the download the pictures. Saving pictures individually on our phones works but you gotta save 600+ pics, it’s not practical to save it one by one because the “select all” and “export” feature doesn’t work. Nothing happens on the screen.

Poor Design and Functionality
by Consumer for Tears on 2020/05/18 08:29
The design and functionality of this app is poor. Whether a person is highly skilled at video programs or not, the app which promotes buying a higher level, should be user friendly. The downloading of files commencing with the email in which they’re received - does not create a temporary folder to find said video. After repeated attempts to download, it’s clear that it’s not a one, two, three type ease to retrieve a video file. In short, when a WeTransfer is sent to me, I cringe every time.
App needs to be fixed
by Tense Uprising on 2020/05/18 00:01
Every time I go to download a file, it goes up to 50% and then it stops! I even have the pro version so this shouldn’t be happening, hours wasted and hundreds of files wasted

Really Wanted to Like This But...
by BlackPearlie on 2020/05/14 08:17
...the shiny, cool images in the description are not what you see in reality. I just saved 3 news clippings, then opened the app. What did I see? 3 lonely post-it notes looking like they were from the 1980s floating in blank space — and titles that look like the long, tedious passwords we’re all supposed to use, but never do. Not offered an option during save to add/change titles on clippings, so that’s one problem. Another is editing them. I don’t think you can. Maybe the app is packed with wonderful features that will transform the universe. I dunno - the clunky, poorly thought out user interface was enough to put me off of this one. It’s like buying a fast car but hooking it to a depressed burro to drag down the street. I have other WeTransfer apps — and they’re afflicted with the same problem: good, even great apps hobbled by insufficcient thought into the user experience. Pity.
Not happy
by dqidnfha on 2020/05/13 17:46
So you just decide to delete the app and everyone’s photos/boards with no heads up? Terrible. I expected more - at a day’s notice that we need to pull all our content.

by JackVinny on 2020/05/06 20:39
One day I had WeTransfer as a mobile app that worked just like the web platform. The next day I updated the app and I found it impossible to send a file from my mobile. I used Dropbox. Then after another update I thought you’d get the idea, but it’s still useless. Why don’t you want me to use your product for file transfers? I’ve been using Dropbox from my mobile. What are you folks thinking?

Best app for collecting items into boards
by Jasondavis2009 on 2020/04/18 15:38
As a programmer and web developer I was working on my ideal app to store collections like this and no other app that exist was good enough for me. Collect hits almost all my needs though and the UI and UX is awesome. Very nice share card integration to easily add images, bookmarks, files, nite, you name it to any existing board or even create a new board without even opening the app! My only issue is the price is a little to high for what I would like to pay. Would love to see a lifetime subscription for like $100 or something or else make the monthly cost like $1.99. Other than that this app is currently the best of its kind and I use it daily! Thanks

by Strider61 on 2020/04/09 05:15
Ridiculous- I can send a 4 minute video in texting that anyone on an IPhone can watch instantly but it takes over and hour to load here. This just happened. Load times I never imagined in this day and age. Reminds me of dial-up in 2005. Next a 7:40 video has been loading for 2 hours - and it’s barely started- no instructions or advice on how to optimize- Honestly I feel this is terrible. At this point I’m very frustrated - feel I’ve been conned and wish I’d never tried this.
What happened to the simple wetransfer?
by Judelgado on 2020/04/08 15:16
New icon on my screen. Don’t know when I downloaded “collect”, for my surprise it is a very complex version of wetransfer with a lot of stuff I did not ask for. Why are you forcing me to have another app that does exactly other iOS apps already do. Very unsatisfying update.
Stupid Update
by Yinao321 on 2020/04/08 00:24
This new update is absolutely stupid. I am very disappointed because now its almost impossible me to download my files from links that people send me. Before when i would click the link it would automatically open up the app and ask if I want to download my files but now it opens up the app store even if my app is downloaded. I dont know how to get it back to normal I just have a bunch of links that send me in a loop but never allow me to download onto the app like I used to. Please fix this or I going to have to cancel my subscription.

It’s super user friendly and allows me to keep them all organized into different boards just like Pinterest! Also the bonus is all of my favorite workout videos can be saved too for easy access while at the gym!Thank you so much for creating this app.

Review
by LAE69 on 2020/03/31 02:48
I have the WeTransfer Pro Account and the Collect app has a major bug with resetting passwords. When requesting to reset the password the email link never showed up in my gmail account. I had to reach out to their technical support team and they are not helpful at all. After a series of back and forth emails I was informed that I had to fill out a detailed report showing them screenshots of the steps I took when trying to reset my password. I finally got the same person and he sent me a reset link manually and stated “when their emails are rejected by a mail server, their mail server puts the user’s email on a bounce list.” And this is why I do not see a reset link from We Transfer. When I finally reset my password, with the link that was manually sent to me, I lost all my media on their boards. I sent the representative in tech support an email, if I cannot get my media files back, I want a refund. Another issue not able to sync my WeTransfer account with the Collect app on my laptop with my iPhone and am not sure if WeTransfer can operate on OS and Windows operating systems at the same time. This app is not worth purchasing. It’s better to use their free account.

Wouldn’t be a problem if he hadn’t of deleted the file on his computer. I want to at least be reimbursed for this. I paid good money for that video and I just can’t have it?

by Dubstep97 on 2020/03/12 22:00
I’ll be swiping through my projects and after a certain number, the app crashes. I’ve started to be and to predict when it’s about to happen!
2 weeks and still not uploaded to board
by Deity454 on 2020/03/12 05:47
Went to a buddy’s wedding. Shot a few fun videos. Added to a board. Thought they’d be up in a few hours. Set my buddy a link. 2 weeks later he said there was nothing there. Went to board...realized, you need to stay on the page with the app open while it spends hours uploading. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Reorganization Feature and Add Sections
by Ggwestwood on 2020/03/11 22:57
You guys should allow users to organize their saves how they want using either drag and drop or oldest to newest. There should also be a section feature for certain boards as well. However, overall, this app is decent.
Upload not finalizing
by Paul v A on 2020/03/10 09:00
Creating Board and adding pictures was easy ... but syncing to the cloud does not work well. I tried to upload ±500 pictures / 0.5gb, over a good wifi connection, using a premium We-Connect account. Sometimes, the app suddenly uploads 100 pictures in 10 minutes ... but mainly it seems to stall. After 20 hours, I am stuck at 84%-95% uploaded (different result for different boards)
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.
Not A Good First Impression
by TDRock on 2020/06/04 18:59
Yesterday was my first time using this app. I needed to send a number of files - both photos and videos - to a client. The client requested that I use WeTransfer. All my files were on my iPhone, this app is where I was directed to WeTransfer from my phone (Due to my profession I send and receive photo files all the time so I am well acquainted with using WeTransfer service on a computer. This was a first trying to do it from my phone). I started trying to send at 7pm, the files were due by 9pm. I did not make the deadline. App kept having errors and freezing intermittently. App also lost the carefully curated order that I had the files in. So I tried to make image notes but I only made a few because that process was also too slow and too cumbersome. I thought that was the point of the Boards was to be able to put things in order like a moodboard? Not only did it not preserve the order in which the files were uploaded there was no fast and easy way to put the files in the order in which I wanted. Nothing was fast nothing was easy. The app might be great if I had time to sit and learn and figure it out but it certainly was not intuitive or fluid for a first use. I paid for Collect Pro just in case I needed it because of the files that I was sending. But needless to say I won’t be keeping the subscription I can’t imagine I would be trying to use this app again.
Need repeat option
by ken vue on 2019/08/01 14:33
I hate the fact that I have to unlock my iPhone just to hit play again every time my project is done playing. I listen to my projects throughout the day while I’m at work and I work at a restaurant so I have to wash my hands unlock my phone just to press play every like 4 mins. It would make my life so much easier is I could just hit repeat and it plays my project over and over again. My productivity would go up, and my stress would go down! Hope you guys add repeat feature. Thanks! Oh and if there’s already a way to repeat a project please let me know lol. Thanks!
Review
by LAE69 on 2020/03/31 02:48
I have the WeTransfer Pro Account and the Collect app has a major bug with resetting passwords. When requesting to reset the password the email link never showed up in my gmail account. I had to reach out to their technical support team and they are not helpful at all. After a series of back and forth emails I was informed that I had to fill out a detailed report showing them screenshots of the steps I took when trying to reset my password. I finally got the same person and he sent me a reset link manually and stated “when their emails are rejected by a mail server, their mail server puts the user’s email on a bounce list.” And this is why I do not see a reset link from We Transfer. When I finally reset my password, with the link that was manually sent to me, I lost all my media on their boards. I sent the representative in tech support an email, if I cannot get my media files back, I want a refund. Another issue not able to sync my WeTransfer account with the Collect app on my laptop with my iPhone and am not sure if WeTransfer can operate on OS and Windows operating systems at the same time. This app is not worth purchasing. It’s better to use their free account.
Wow
by aKaFaMouS on 2020/01/28 19:33
As a life long artist I hope I have the experience to realize when I come across a gem. I think I have found exactly that in paper. Kudos to the developer. I’m blown away by the ease and simple use of this app. I rarely write a review but feel compelled to do it simply because this is an incredible piece of techno. I would like to thank the creators who obviously have thought out and implemented a great design. I am purchasing the pro edition forthwith something I also rarely do. Cannot wait to use all the tools available on this awesome tool. Someone deserves praise for bringing this all together . Even someone whose not necessarily an art enthusiast can pick this up and create just about any type of visual media. Keep up the great work it’s appreciated. I have To go got many great ideas bouncing around in my head that I need to get started on.
Really Wanted to Like This But...
by BlackPearlie on 2020/05/14 08:17
...the shiny, cool images in the description are not what you see in reality. I just saved 3 news clippings, then opened the app. What did I see? 3 lonely post-it notes looking like they were from the 1980s floating in blank space — and titles that look like the long, tedious passwords we’re all supposed to use, but never do. Not offered an option during save to add/change titles on clippings, so that’s one problem. Another is editing them. I don’t think you can. Maybe the app is packed with wonderful features that will transform the universe. I dunno - the clunky, poorly thought out user interface was enough to put me off of this one. It’s like buying a fast car but hooking it to a depressed burro to drag down the street. I have other WeTransfer apps — and they’re afflicted with the same problem: good, even great apps hobbled by insufficcient thought into the user experience. Pity.
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.
Best app for collecting items into boards
by Jasondavis2009 on 2020/04/18 15:38
As a programmer and web developer I was working on my ideal app to store collections like this and no other app that exist was good enough for me. Collect hits almost all my needs though and the UI and UX is awesome. Very nice share card integration to easily add images, bookmarks, files, nite, you name it to any existing board or even create a new board without even opening the app! My only issue is the price is a little to high for what I would like to pay. Would love to see a lifetime subscription for like $100 or something or else make the monthly cost like $1.99. Other than that this app is currently the best of its kind and I use it daily! Thanks
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%.
Resentful
by N0vicane9 on 2019/10/07 09:46
I hate leaving reviews because it's a waste of time, but my frustration gets the better of me. I sincerely resent the fact that this app puts up countless road blocks to simply downloading the files I've received via wetransfer. I've read prior criticism of the app's complete deviation from wetransfer's purpose and simplicity. And I see not much feedback has been taken to heart. I want to download a video...I want to download a photo. I don't want to create a board, or copy to a photo which isn't my photo library but instead some kind of new folder or...I don't even know! This app is confusing and overbearing and useless and I'm so frustrated at the developers for not getting it already. Start listening to users and for goodness sake... Keep it simple!
This app ruins the simplicity of wetransfer
by eskimorider on 2019/09/06 21:35
I really love wetransfer in the browser because it is super simple and artistic. When someone receives a wetransfer link, even if they haven’t used it before, even my grandma, they know exactly what to do with it. But on the phone all of a sudden you have to navigate this Pinterest like app with multiple steps to simply save things on device. I agree with the other reviews here, I don’t really need or want this extra functionality. Maybe it was added so the app is easier to monetize. I’m sure Collect has its uses for other people, but when it’s bundled together with wetransfer it feels forced down our throats. Maybe it could be split into separate apps. I’m a fan of wetransfer - please keep it simple!
Hands Down My Most Utilized App!
by TolleyMM on 2020/04/02 18:36
I seriously searched for a long time to find a way to organize all of my screenshots and things I wanted to remember to get them out of my camera roll...I thought I was going to have to create an app somehow myself until FINALLY I found an app for it! It’s super user friendly and allows me to keep them all organized into different boards just like Pinterest! Also the bonus is all of my favorite workout videos can be saved too for easy access while at the gym!Thank you so much for creating this app.
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????
My Pictures Stopped Loading fast after I chose to go pro
by MissJay BLESSED on 2020/01/29 23:45
I emailed pictures to a client of mine who states that only 17 pictures were received out of the 70 pictures that were taken and added to the “board”. I’ve been downloading the pictures for 4 days now and still.. nothing. It’s been stuck on 67% upload. 🙁 and this is after I deleted the first board that took too long to load and started over.
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.
Lost files
by im_sad4444 on 2019/09/04 03:26
I recently got a new device and wanted my scanned film photos on it. Since now, I have been keeping them almost exclusively on this app as that is how my photo lab sends them to me, which was probably my first mistake. Since there is account syncing feature, I had to manually send links to myself through AirDrop. Unfortunately, after only successfully uploading, sending, and downloading one board, all other boards I attempted to send not only failed to send but disappeared from both devices. I don’t have these files anywhere else, and as these are film photos I either have lost the negatives or will need to pay to have them scanned again. I blame myself for placing so much trust in this app.
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.
Greatest app
by clmc9811kc33 on 2020/01/22 13:06
So far I’ve had no issues storing any of my photos and songwriting I’ve recorded freestyle and or previous idea recordings that I’ve saved and come back to finish at a later date. Anyways it’s a great way to keep my documents together and still have room to do more.. thank you guys for the app it’s also... I just wish you guys offered copyrights if the items or being shared without my knowledge. But so far I have not had that issue so thank you guys again.
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.
Below Average
by QueenJaimi on 2019/09/10 15:04
It’s a good idea but it hardly ever works. If anyone uploads anything to a board I’m never able to save it or share it. It never uploads all the way and we can never tell what is missing or what got uploaded. If this app worked it would actually make my life easier but unfortunately it does not work that well with uploading. I usually end up having to link up with someone and airdrop to them or if I’m downloading I will have to download each picture one by one which defeats the purpose of the app altogether and is extremely time-consuming and frustrating. If anyone knows an app that works well please share!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
My Review
by lananicxle on 2020/01/09 03:55
I love how fast it is to upload photos on this. I do believe that uploading videos should be faster. I feel like we should be able to upload things without WiFi for people who don’t have internet access because all I have is data. It’s way faster than Dropbox when all you have is data & this is better than Google Drive too.
Great App! Here’s some recommendations
by maddynn7 on 2019/08/30 14:31
As someone who has thousands of notes in Evernote, I really love this app because of the visual component, through boards, that it brings. Some suggestions to make it perfect : I would really love a dark mode iPad app would be great with easy account syncing Being able to clip full articles instead of just the link, like Evernote’s clipping function. Thank you devs for you hard work!
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.
Terrible download speed when I works
by j99887766 on 2019/08/14 22:40
Trying to share items with a friend and the only value this app brings is frustration and anger. Most of the time when I click on a file to download it immediately responds with “Download failed. Try again”. No further info. Repeat repeat repeat does not work. Try different network try vpn try cellular try different device ... nothing. On the RARE occasion download starts it ends up being slower that old school dialup. And there is no guarantee it will complete before stalling without notice. It is frustrating, aggregating and impossible to use.
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.
Organization for the chronically disorganized
by NTHKU on 2020/06/17 02:38
I really have a problem getting everything organized in a place. Not only that but getting things organized in such a way so that I actually use a system to categorize & go back and use it regularly?! I have finally found peace, it only costs me $9 a month but whatever.
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!!
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.
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.
Terrible
by Yankeebrat on 2019/08/13 20:23
Any download that’s more than 10 pictures will take multiple attempts to fully download to a board. This happens even on a strong Wi-Fi signal or strong data signal. Sometimes a download will get to 95% then never complete also. Very frustrating when I’m trying to use photos I’ve PURCHASED and can’t.
Stupid Update
by Yinao321 on 2020/04/08 00:24
This new update is absolutely stupid. I am very disappointed because now its almost impossible me to download my files from links that people send me. Before when i would click the link it would automatically open up the app and ask if I want to download my files but now it opens up the app store even if my app is downloaded. I dont know how to get it back to normal I just have a bunch of links that send me in a loop but never allow me to download onto the app like I used to.

A media and record keepers dream
by bbjggjj on 2020/04/01 19:22
I’m in media and writing but struggle with tech. I can upload everything so easily and share it so well. I do wish I had tie ability to stop sharing a link. Otherwise great app. Also, can I add friends? That would be cool. I’d like to colab on the board with members who also have the app but didn’t see how
Awful

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.
Great response to my suggestions

Great app... letting me know there thoughts about feature changes and improvements... a quick suggestion for us as reviewers... have you ever thought about instead of saying something is bad or not good, asking questions and praising the developers for their hard work?!
App Name📲 What is it Exactly???
by Eri143 on 2019/12/13 19:53
🤷🏻‍♀️ I would like to tell others about this, but your app name ...umm... is not exactly clear. 🧐 Is it “Collect”? The icon says WE so is it “We Collect”?? Or is it the thing you want people to pay for? “Collect Pro”??? Sooooo confusing & can we continue using this WITHOUT PAYING or is it one of those “FREE Apps” that are not really free 🙄 If I can continue using this as it is, then it’s great & I hope that’s the case and I haven’t just wasted my time with this app
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!
Great for viewing we transfer downloads on mobile

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.
great if we could organize boards
by Seasandfun on 2019/09/03 16:24
I’ve been using the app to store photos in various boards unfortunately it appears that the boards aren’t in alphabetical order. also unable to manually rearranged the order. seems to be based on the last usage of the board so it’s difficult to find things that I’ve saved. i’ve suspended usage of the app for now keeping an eye on it rating a three for now.
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. :(
