The most simple and straight-forward file transfer service

I use WeTranfer on my day-to-day basis, and being a game developer I handle with lots of assets, builds, and large archives. WeTransfer has never failed me. It greatly improved my workflow being so intuitive and simple, sharing files with clients with a few clicks has never been so easy.

Pros

Seriously, it is a really simple and intuitive service. Just a few buttons focusing on what it's supposed to offer, and it delivers flawlessly. Even the ads they came up with an elegant solution that I've just realized until recently it were ads! Despite covering the whole screen, they use beautiful and artistic pictures and videos. Beyond that, there's no need to sign up, or leave any personal information, you just drop your files, hit "Transfer" and that's it. Of course, being able to do that have its limitations, like the 2GB file limit (which for the most people is not a real limitation) and some other specific features.

Cons

The only negative aspect I had to talk about was the file limit per day, but they have removed that! Now you can transfer limitlessly (you still have that 2GB file limit though).

Reasons for Switching to WeTransfer

Dropbox was the big dog of file sharing/transfer service. Not anymore, at least for me. What made me switch to WeTransfer was the end of public folder feature. Of course, in its core Dropbox is different from WeTransfer, it tackles a different problem. But most people used Dropbox for the "simplicity" of sharing files. Well, the "simplicity's" definition has been updated by WeTransfer.

Best option for easy file transfer

I have been using We Transfer for a very long time, it is easy to use and friendly, I like that there is no need to make any installation and is easy to access.

Pros

I really enjoy the ease of use of this software, it is very easy to send files even to clients that do not understand a lot about technology or files organization. I enjoy its free version because that way I can also ask clients and colleagues to send back files to me if they do not have a paid account.

Cons

Recently We transfer added an option that sends a code to verify your identity before sending the files, this is taking me extra time or sometimes it takes longer to receive the code. Other than that the software is great.

Reasons for Switching to WeTransfer

I like that we transfer has no need to log in or download an app.

Essential Data Transfer Software

I don’t think you can go wrong with WeTransfer, I would struggle to find someone in the creative industry who doesn’t use this on a day-to-day basis. I can’t go without it.

Pros

I love the simplicity of WeTransfer, there is absolutely nothing confusing about the interface. I would he surprised if some was confused by it. As a creative I personally also love the touch of featuring artists work fullscreen when you come to the page.

Cons

Only issues I sometimes have with WeTransfer can be uploads or downloads failing when I abruptly loose Internet connection. Some other softwares seem to be a bit more lenient with that window of time in reconnecting.

Perfect for occasional sending of very large files

I am using WeTransfer to send large files (such as videos or SCORM packages) to people outside of my organization, who don't have or need access to our Google Drive. WeTransfer is a faster and simpler way to send those kinds of files when the need arises.

Pros

I enjoy being able to use WeTransfer for the infrequent times that I need to send someone outside my organization a very large file. I don't need to keep up with yet another account, like with DropBox - I can simply create the WeTransfer, send it to the person who needs it, and continue on with my life. It's simple, easy, and hassle-free. And it has cool visuals to look at while you're waiting for the transfer to process, if you have nothing better to do!

Cons

There is a limit to the size each transfer can be in the free version, even if you don't use the tool very frequently. It would be nice if they would let you send a single file of unlimited size, up to twice a year or something. I wouldn't want to pay for something I don't use very often.

Reasons for Switching to WeTransfer

We didn't use Dropbox often enough to justify the cost, so our account was just sitting there idle with lots of data taking up space. WeTransfer helps us handle the more infrequent large transfers that we need to send to clients, etc.

Easiest large file transfer service available!

Serval of my corporate clients prefer WeTransfer over the other file transfer services like DropBox or Google Drive. I have never had any issues downloading files because of permission settings or long downloads.

Pros

Unlike other large file transfer services, WeTransfer's links are direct download that generally only make you access you screen and you're ready to download. By far the easiest way I've been able to transfer and receive files from clients.

Cons

WeTransfer works just the way it should. There is really no downside to this service. I can honestly say that in my experience with it that if any features were added, it would only bloat the service in unnecessary ways.

Reasons for Switching to WeTransfer

DropBox's marketing emails, service maintenance reminders and permission settings made it more of a hassle to use than WeTransfer.
