Collect is the best way to save everything that inspires you and fuels your
ideas. Upload images and videos, save links and anything from across your apps,
then organize it all into visual boards. You can share boards (if you want), and
work together right in a board! • Add images, song...
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.
Need repeat option
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!
Needs a native ipad app bare minimum
I really wanted to like this app. Ive been searching for a place to put things I want to remember for years, and none of them have stuck. I really like the ui and feel of the app , unfortunately Collect has no native ipad app so you are forced to use it in portrait and hit the zoom button. (i only use my ipad in landscape so this is very frustrating.) Also unless I’ve missed it there is no kind of account syncing so the collect app on my iPhone, and the one on my ipad are essentially two different brains until i text myself a link to join an individual board. This works perfectly if I’m sharing something with a team member or my wife but I’d really like just one place to put stuff and keep track of it on all my devices. I already have a paper account that keeps all my journals in sync why not just make it universal? This doesn’t have anything to do with the app but i dont see how adding by we transfer to the name is necessary. As a normal person who has only heard of we transfer advertised on a podcast or two it doesn’t really add anything to the experience. Ill keep this on my devices for now with the hopes that we transfer continues development on this app. But I’ll just keep throwing junk i need to keep track of in notes for now.
UPDATED 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!!! 😡
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!
Please change the app so its like the online version
My app is constantly crashing. I open it and it kicks me right off. When I share photos 2/3 of the time the person says the link doesn’t work. They tell me they get a note saying “there is nothing in this board”. There is most definitely something in the board the app just doesn’t work. Also, I really dislike this board thing. I don’t like Pinterest and that is not what we transfer it for. I just want to send people files! Response to developer: I sent a message to support the same day I wrote this review. They told me to not close the app until all the photos were completely downloaded....The app takes way to long to download anything. I have literally never seen it say your board it 100% downloaded. It’s always stuck at about 11%.
This app ruins the simplicity of wetransfer
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!
This is NOT WeTransfer
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????
Great App! Here’s some recommendations
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!
How I rate WeTransfer
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
