Pros: WeTransfer is very easy to use, both for the sender and the recipient. In fact, no user needs to create an account to start with: it is just a matter of using the intuitive interface to upload one or more files and indicate an email for the files to be received. This comes in handy to send files that are too large to be attached in an email but that still need to be delivered to people who aren't necessarily tech-savvy. There is also a very useful feature available to generate a link instead of sending an email. It never failed on me during a transfer, nor when sending or receiving an email. It has consistently worked flawlessly and gives valid reasons to switch to a paid account, especially for the additional nice benefits it offers: you can transfer 20GB at once; store up to 100GB; files are kept for longer; you can password-protect files and you can even have your own personalized web address with a custom background wallpaper. Even with a free account, it never feels like a limited service: downloads and uploads are quick and reliable.

Cons: After sharing dozens and dozens of files with family, friends and colleagues, there is only one drawback with WeTransfer: most of the files uploaded, being sent through free accounts, will expire after 7 days. Most of the time, this is more than enough, but it can cause some troubles to have to reupload the exact same big files (or sometimes series of files) because the recipient haven't taken the time to download them. One great feature that could potentially save some bandwidth for everyone would be to have the ability to extend the expiration date a day or two before it is supposed to expire. As a workaround for now, it is indeed convenient to have a Premium account to avoid this pitfall. I almost exclusively use this service on a laptop, but I will admit that I did experience some troubles with the iPhone application: when transferring an archive that was too large to fit on the smartphone, it somehow hung up and there was no way to fix the issue through the app. Hopefully, it was possible to use a third-party application to manually find and deleted the partially downloaded archive to free up some space and give life back to the WeTransfer app.

Overall: Overall, it is undoubtedly one of the best services of that kind that I have used over the years. In many cases, I find it even more convenient than a cloud storage solution because nothing is linked to one specific account and there is no need to garbage collect archives that are no longer in use. This can be a doubled-edge sword, but frankly one can just reupload files when needed or realize how much or how little interest the recipient has when getting an email confirmation when the files have been downloaded, which is obviously another great feature of WeTransfer. In work situations, this actually is wonderfully useful as the recipient can't fake that the information hasn't got through. It even works equally well for transferring encrypted archives that contain sensitive information and so we have given our trust to this service many, many times. I haven't personally needed to contact their customer support yet, but I have seen how well WeTransfer treat their customers and I have no doubt they will be there when the time comes.

Pros: I always tell my colleagues and supervisors, in my career as a photographer and editor there's a before and after since I've known this software. I say this because WeTransfer is a fascinating software that combines effectiveness in the delivery of videos, photographs and documents with quality service.

One of the great benefits that I can mention from this software is that, as a result of my work, I have to send large photo packages to my bosses so that they can review the material and choose the photos they want, and Wetransfer allows me to send and receive large photo or video packages very easily and quickly, avoiding the limitations of e-mails, which was my most recurrent option when sending photographs or videos.

Wetransfer allows you to send up to 2gb of information, enough to send the information I need.

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

Overall: Wetransfer is a high-performance software that you should start using immediately. The benefits it offers are fabulous and very easy to use. This software will open your eyes to the way you send documents online.

Pros: "A wonder of software", this is what comes to mind when I think of We Transfer. This software has greatly facilitated my job performance as it has facilitated the transfer of images, videos and documents to other recipients. I have a total of 2 gb of capacity to send information, this I use enough since the emails have a maximum sending capacity of up to 25 mb, and any document, video or photograph that exceeds 25 mb of storage capacity ends up being sent from the cloud, making the sending of information more tedious. With We Transfer I have overcome the capacity limitations for sending information and therefore I fully recommend it to all my colleagues and people.

Cons: While I have not had any security problems when using we transfer, if I could read on the Internet about the software and discovered that has security problems because the company has no protection from the arvhicos that are sent, exposing such information and at the hands of hackers and the general public who can access the information being transferred. It would be good if the company we transfer increases the level of security to use this software.

Pros: We Transfer is a wonderful alternative for our daily activities at work. And this not only results in workers who are in the office, but in those who perform field research functions. I say this, because We Transfer has allowed us to optimize in an amazing way the sending of photographs and videos of the field investigations, being able to streamline the process of forming technical reports to be presented to the respective supervisors and area managers.

We highlight these characteristics of We Transfer, because it has simply enhanced in an indescribable way all our functions associated with the research area, therefore I strongly recommend that you acquire this fabulous software.

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

Overall: A software that will change your way of thinking and see the transfer of files in real time. Therefore it is necessary that you acquire it and use it

Pros: In our editorial line, the transfer of information quickly and efficiently is a factor that plays a large part in the processes of delivering products to our customers, revisions of the material for inclusion in texts, and in the quality control of them.

Taking these characteristics into cents, We Transfer has been an inseparable ally, since it has allowed us to mobilize heavy files on the web in a simple way without having to pay expensive file sending services. In addition to this, We Transfer is very easy to use, you only need the documents, images or videos that you are going to send and a recipient email that is where the information will arrive.

It is simply dazzling and amazing how this software has dramatically increased our operability and performance. It is certainly a vital ally in our editorial and we recommend it in unison

Cons: There is no need to criticize excellence. This metaphor is used when describing the performance of We Transfer. This is software that can not be absent from any business space, or independent. All that program that simplifies functions in the work will have my approval.

Pros: I like that you can send files of all kinds (PDF, JPG, AI, PSD) and it loads moderately fast, and does not put the internet lentro to continue working on your things. That the file reaches your mail, is great, and that it notifies you when the person receives it. It is easy to download. If you use the free one, you have up to 2GB of files, if it is premium you have up to 20GB, I think the premium is for people like designers and people who need this means to send files that do not fit in a normal mail.

Cons: The files have expiration, if you have more than one month the file is deleted. It does not notify you if the email is wrong.

Overall: Easy to send heavy files for your personal or professional use.

Pros: What I like most is the ease of using this. It's really straightforward. All you have to do upload the files you want to share, provide sender and recipient mail address. No registration is needed which is great, so you can start using it right away. Also it's completely free of charge when sending files under 2 GB of size. It works very efficient, when you send the files, they receive it pretty fast, and the files will stay available for quite a while (not exactly sure how long).

Cons: Sometimes it's rather saddening when you want to download files from a wetransfer, and then you realize that the link has expired and you can no longer download the files. It would be nice if they would save all the data, but it's normal obviously. Maybe if this wasn't yet the case, they could perhaps include this as a premium feature. Also, too bad that it's free only up to 2 GB's, but again, quite normal. Just like every company, they need to make profit aswell.

Overall: Used WeTransfer really often for sending/sharing files with friends/colleagues. Sometimes the files are just too big to send over mail and you don't always have a USB drive with you. 2 GB limit has mostly been no problem for me. I believe there's no other platform I know of which does the exact same with the exact same features and working just as good as WeTransfer. Definitely would advise people using WeTransfer when wanting to send larger files to people.

Pros: I do not know if it has happened to them ... but in my day to day I must send several emails with attachments or share them with other areas of the company and honestly such a simple task can be really annoying. The reasons can be varied: Corporate mail with little capacity, ignorance of other places for the reception of files or, even, the lack of a pendrive. It may be funny, but this is the day to day of many.

The good news is that this initiative, WeTransfer, has fallen like sunlight on me and has made tasks like the ones described above really easy. So easy that I do not even have a registered account to use their services.

Other interesting aspects, is the possibility of placing the email you want as a sender and, as if that were not enough, lets you make a description that allows you to put in context who will receive the information.

Cons: Something negative? Well OK...

It only allows sending a maximum of 2GB. If you want to send with larger size, you must pay for a plan. But ... come on, not everything can be free in this life.

Overall: In summary, the user experience has been great. If you are in a company, if you work on your own or just want to send files to your family or friends, believe me you should try it and share it with your friends. I assure you that it will make things easier

Looking for an easy cloud service? Try out WeTransfer!

Pros: WeTransfer is so easy to use! What I really like about this is that you don't necessarily need to input an email address to whom you're sending to. You can just upload the file, copy the link and send it right away without any hassle!

Cons: If you don't want to pay the plus service, you'll only get 2GB space. But this is still great for me!

Overall: Working as a Support member, I've encountered some customers who have issues sending files because they are not too familiar with the technology. I've always recommended them to use WeTransfer and it works just great! They don't have to be dealing with any privacy settings or whatsoever. Overall, I do recommend this file transfer service.

Pros: I'm a photographer and designer so I'm often having to send big files to folks. WeTransfer is a life-saver. It creates a link, you send that link, and it's deleted after 7 days unless you have a premium account. The fact that you can upload up to 2gb at a time - which is the utmost limit for Dropbox's free accounts, ridiculously so - makes it perfect for my work. It also has an upperhand on Cloud storage services for someone like me because if I use DropBox or GDrive, I worry my clients will expect the files to live there permanently. And if I set a date limit on how long they live there, I won't be able to delete them if I need to clean up space earlier. Etc... And I tend to organize my files on hard drives moreso.

Cons: The only dream I have for the free version of WeTransfer is if there could somehow be a record of all the links you've generated. At least while they're active. That way if someone else wants the link, or if the client loses it, you can just reshare instead of uploading the files again.

Overall: WeTransfer is an incredible service and one of the best free services out there overall.

Pros: I use WeTransfer to send compressed zip files because my mailbox makes long virus scan before sending such files. Uploading speed is also very low. Compared with WeTransfer I can say that WeTransfer is 5 times faster than my mailbox and that is the main reason using WeTransfer instead of my mail. My mailbox has also limitations therefore I can't send large sized files. Overall WeTransfer is ideal choice for sending large sized files to your customers or colleagues. For office needs file size limit is normal for me. If the uploaded file contains some sensitive information you can also choose email delivery of download link and this will increase security level of your files. Boards feature of WeTransfer is also great option which makes possible multiple file sharing with anyone.

Cons: WeTransfer is a good choice for file sharing. But when it comes to file storage WeTransfer is not made for that purpose. But it would be nice if WeTransfer offered some place to store our files permanently. Because upload and download speed of WeTransfer is amazing.

Pros: It happened to me many times that I had to deliver files of great size that took an eternity in uploading to the mail or simply my mail service did not allow it to me by its high dimension and looking for a solution a colleague of work recommended me We Transfer. It is a wonder, in a few minutes large files can be sent without any problem, just upload the file and put the email address of the person you want to send it and through a link this can download.

Cons: Confidential documents cannot be sent because the information is exposed on the web.

Pros: It is incredibly easy to share files with WeTransfer; this is down to its very user-friendly interface that is clean and uncluttered. WeTransfer is web-based, which means it is easy to access from many different platforms including mobile. You can send up to 2GB of files with the free version (unlimited sizes with the 'Plus' version), and it only requires a sender email address and recipient email address. You can also leave a message that will be sent along with the files on the email, which is useful for providing additional information about the files you have sent. There is no registration required to use WeTransfer.

Cons: The user interface is very simplistic with lots of empty space, although this is a testament to how well WeTransfer has simplified the process of sending files and is more a subjective design gripe than a complaint of functionality.

Overall: WeTransfer has given me the ability to easily and reliably share files to others via email. Although they offer a 'WeTransfer Plus' service, I have found the free service to be incredibly fitting and not at all restricting for my needs at a personal level. If a need arises within my organisation for the transferring of files to external sources, due to my experiences I would readily suggest WeTransfer as a first choice.

Pros: As a photographer who sends gigabytes of data on a weekly basis, especially to external sources, WeTransfer makes this experience quick and easy.

Cons: The option to make transfers unlimited in terms of delete date isn't exactly clear, but the option is there if looked for, which is a perfect feature for the paying customer

Overall: To the sender (myself), the user interface is simple. Upload via browser, using file search and select or drag and drop. A notification that my recipient has downloaded is also a nice feature. To the recipient, the download is a simple link that begins the file transfer. Nothing more, nothing less.

Pros: It is the closest thing to a banking service, just by having the email address of the person who will receive the information, we are ready to process the shipment. With a good connection it is the best program for transit in external and internal networks, I was surprised the first time I used it, since I got an email with an authorization and a file that had been problematic to transfer for its size in a few minutes was available on my computer. This tool is fabulous, I recommend it 100%

Cons: Security is not the best, your shipment is exposed for 7 days and anyone can access it by clicking. I have looked for a way to solve it, but I have not come up with any answer.

Pros: So simple to use. You can literally power a computer for the first time and you would be able to share large files online with another person. It is that simple to use. Plus the size of the files that you can share is literally unmatched.

Cons: I don`t think there`s anything that i don`t like. Maybe a little more work on the mobile version, the user interface is not really that good.

Overall: I can share important files that i need immediately almost in an instant. Sometimes when i`m on the go but really need access to a file, i do that from my phone and i love that.

Pros: It is very important for me to be able to have my larger files in and also to be able to send them, it is a common practice in my work to have to send large spreadsheet files, many times emails do not allow them to be sent because of their size. That's why I've been using the We Transfer service for quite some time, it allows me to send my spreadsheets to anyone with an email address, I just put this address, I upload the file and the recipient receives a download link. Easy and fast.

Cons: I am not very concerned about security, but people with more knowledge of the subject have told me that the files sent are public on the web.

Pros: WeTransfer allows you to quickly send files for free to anyone with an email address. Up to 3 people; up to 2GB file size.

This basic functionality is provided without requiring user registration, a big plus, which has to be a big reason by WeTransfer has stuck around for so long.

I have several clients who have used the service over the years to send me large files. They seem to like it and I've seen no reason to look around for other solutions.

Also, it's quite pretty to look at it. :-)

Cons: Depending on where you are in the world, transfers, both up and down, can be slow and sometimes fail. Supposedly, file uploads can be resumed but I've never had this work for me.

Downloads can sometimes be resumed using a dedicated download application like JDownload.

Overall: Easy and unobtrusive way to send files for free. Reliability is sometimes an issue though.

Pros: There are many file storage platforms like WeTransfer. But the best side and main difference of WeTransfer is that there is no disturbing ads or pop up windows while downloading files. I have tried many similar platforms to WeTransfer and once I came across even eight pop up windows while trying to download file. This is very disturbing and main reason of customer loose. My second reason of choosing WeTransfer was speed which amazed me while uploading. It uses all the resources in order to upload files in maximum speed. I strongly recommend WeTransfer to every kind of companies if they want reliable and efficient file sharing platform.

Cons: There are some features missing which I want to see in the WeTransfer soon. One of them and the most important one is collaboration feature which can save time and increase productivity in the company. And the other one is face recognition feature from photos which makes easy to organize photos.

Pros: Our company need to regularly send large files to printing presses, clients, or production facilities. We use wetransfer regularly and it is a God send. We transfer lots of files, and we receive confirmation once the recipient has downloaded the file, then seven days later, the file is deleted, saving us storage space.

Cons: Occasionally, the service seems to slow down or almost stop working. I feel bad mentioning this as it happens maybe once a year or so. Occasionally, you need to redownload an old file, and that is never possible after seven days have passed.

Overall: We use wetransfer regularly to send large files to clients and to vendors. We receive a confirmation email once the file is sent, then another once the file is downloaded. Sending a file is very easy with full-page drag-and-=drop feature.

I highly recommend this service.

Pros: For files that are too large for email, We Transfer sends the files through a downloadable link. I use the free version (which lets you send files under 2 GB) everyday to send video files and zips.

Cons: When using Google Chrome as your browser sometimes it can take several attempts to attach a file.

Overall: We Transfer makes sending large files so much easier. No more mailing a thumb-drive or having to use more expensive programs to send large files.

An invaluable tool for transferring video files...

Pros: WeTransfer Plus has been an invaluable tool for us to send large video files to and from clients, with the need to install additional software, agents, etc. The simplicity of that entire process is this product's greatest strength.

Cons: We have several users sharing the account. As an administrator, I would like to see some user controls, usage notifications, usage reporting, and other similar advanced functions.

Pros: The design programs usually produce files of great size and weight, that's why a tool like We Transfer makes my life too easy, unlike how annoying it can be to attach a large file in an email, this tool simply sends a download link and just click on download and your contact will get the information. Easy, simple and very efficient.

Cons: Excellent, nothing negative to point out, I recommend it 100%.

Pros: Each of us has had problems with attachments at least once in a lifetime, I guess. Large files, videos, and other media have been such a headache for me since I discovered WeTransfer.

Available either for free and for a fee, WeTransfer is a great soultion to share large files. It is extremely easy to use. You only have to go on the website, upload the file, and select the sharing mode.

At the beginning, you could only share your file via email by entering the recipient email and yours, but then they have added the amazing link sharing function. After uploading the file you only have to copy the link and send it to whoever you want.

Easy, comfortable, efficient, and astounding. Let's try it now.

Cons: I think that the only con was the sharing function, which was only available via email. But now it has been fixed so you only have to enjoy this great service.

Overall: Never without it!

Pros: I can't say enough about WeTransfer! Many business' have security in place for using outside file sharing, only allowing FTP. But as soon as you mention WeTransfer they feel at ease. The ability to share large files so quickly and SO easily is mind blowing. I suggest WeTransfer every time, no questions asked. Not to mention there beautifully designed landing pages, it makes designers everywhere so happy! We need more programs like this out there.

Cons: Nothing bad to say about WeTransfer! Everything functions the way it should, no lag on uploads or downloads. It is quick and easy. It truly frees up on waiting times when sending files.

Overall: Amazing. Just amazing. The design, quality, structure and security couldn't be better. Please make others WeTransfer!!

Pros: WeTransfer has worked great as a way for me to transfer files to clients. And I love that I am able to add my own photos to customize the download page that clients see.

Cons: I want to switch my subscription to a yearly subscription to save money (instead of the monthly subscription that I started out with) but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to do so. Also, many of my less tech-savvy clients have trouble opening zip folders, and WeTransfer requires folders to be zipped prior to sending, so I wish that I didn't always have to zip the folders.

Pros: Whenever I need to send big files I will rely on WeTransfer. Although I'm using the FREE version it still allows me to send up to 2GB, and it doesn't require me to sign up or register. The visual also very compelling. Love it.

Cons: I don't find anything bad with WeTransfer, just that if you're using the FREE version your files is uploaded temporarily in just a few days.

Pros: It's the best software to use in comparison with an email, skype, viber etc because we transfer limit is 2 gb. That means a lot for us since we are working with high quality pictures, videos and 3D interactive tours. And I have to point out that all of this is free. Our clients also really like this app. Another plus is that there is no need to make an account.

Cons: I didn't encounter anything negative and i will continue to use WeTransfer

Overall: I recommend using this software to anyone working with HQ photos, videos and 3D tours.

In our line of work, it's one of our most used tools.

Cons: I can't really say anything bad about Wetransfer, it may be cool if they would implement an video reviewing tool in the transfer system or something like that.

Overall: We work most of our time online, without a system like wetransfer, our job would be impossible.

Pros: This is my GO-TO for file transfer. As a video editor I am constantly having to send large video files back and forth and WeTransfer is SO easy to use. I like that you can decide to send a link or just a direct email. I also like that it will notify you when someone has used your link. So they can't get away with acting like they haven't received it yet because you have proof!

Cons: The only drawback is that I wish you could send even LARGER files. It's 2G for the free version, and up to 20G at a time. Which is a ton, but sometimes I'd like a little bit more.

Overall: I am able to send large files across the country within minutes, which drastically changes the way I do things. Much easier than sending drives through the snail mail!

Pros: WeTransfer could not be easier to use! It is the answer to sharing important documents with clients that are too large to send over basic email. Also, there is also no real commitment when using WeTransfer, which allows any one to create or receive documents quickly and without hassle.

Cons: There are very few things I dislike about WeTransfer. There is a limited amount of storage on the free account, so eventually you may have to pay for an account, but even that is low cost.

Overall: Working in the design industry, we're often sending large, complex files that are over capacity via email. WeTransfer let's us send all of these files quickly and easily and with very minimal cost (if anything) which helps us stay efficient on projects both with time and money.

Cons: I wish the file limit for the free version was a little higher!

Pros: WeTransfer is what I use most for file transfers. Their website is extremely easy to use, 2 clicks and you're transferring files. You can send up to 2G for free, which is a lot and I never hit the 2G mark (I am a graphic designer and often send very large files and multiple). The design of the site is beautiful. I love how they feature artwork.

Cons: I don't have anything negative to say about WeTransfer.

Overall: I use WeTransfer about every other day. Easy to use, simple, does exactly what you need it to do.

Pros: The best part is that I can send super large files to my clients without having to worry about corruption. Email only allows you up to 25mb and even then its not so secure. I am able to send video files, zipped files etc up to 2gbs and get notified when they download it. I use it constantly to send source files to my printer.

Cons: I wish the pro option was a bit more affordable. I just cant justify paying it just for the large file transfers. Maybe if it had a bit more to offer in the pro section?

Overall: The best part of wetransfer is that the free option is perfect for my needs most of the time. I am glad they have the free option as sending files using wetransfer is so much better than just attaching via email

Pros: Quick accessability without the need for signing up to register an account. Sending files that are too large to send via email is a 2-3 step pocess with WeTransfer. Simply upload the files and enter the email address of the recipient, and the file is quickly on its way being available for download via a link. The upload and download speed are superb.

Cons: I'm tempted to consider the Plus option - at the moment it's not often that I need to send files larger than 2GB. I do like the storage options and being able to manage previous files and links. I'd need a large storage capacity to make me consider WeTransfer over Dropbox Business for storage - it does have a lot going for it though!

Pros: We can freely send up to 2GB amount of files among our family, friends,co-workers or clients.There is no registration is required for share files with the WeTransfer platform.We can send files within few clicks and also easy to share files using email accounts.We just have to insert the email account which we are looking for to share files.Also we can add a message with the shareable files. Once we share a file with the added emails it will send quick email with a link to the shared files.

Cons: WeTransfer platform required a perfectly working internet network connection to upload and download shareable files. Files upload and download rate will depend on our internet connection.

Overall: I have always use this WeTransfer service because there are no registration or signup process before sharing files .So it will be much efficient time saving way to we can easily work with.

Pros: I adore WeTransfer as it allows to super easy and simple transfer large data. You don't need to sign up, just go to the home page and send. Not only that - it also secures that by transferring the quality of data isn't damaged. Therefore, in my experience as well as several professional photographers I have worked with, this is the best way to send photos. For extra safety, there is a premium option.

Cons: You get more security by subscribing to premium service, which thankfully is super reasonable. Also you can only send & recieve data via e-mail and or file links, but can't create an account on website.

Overall: As it's super easy, simple and fast I use WeTrasnfer to send and receive photos and other data. The quality of photos doesn't get reduced, which is super important for my business.

The premium service is worth at least 10 times more its costs.

Pros: I love that there is no registration or login necessary. Anyone can easily send a file immediately, even if they've never used it before.

Cons: I use it all the time and have never had an issue -- but if I have to pick a con I guess I would like the link to remain active for longer than the standard period, which I believe is 2 weeks. I rarely need to access it again, but there's been a time or two when I wanted to retrieve the file again after the link had expired.

Overall: I frequently need to send and receive very large art files, and this is so simple! I can even request a file from someone who has never used it before, and I know they'll be able to figure it out easily and send me the file very quickly.

Pros: Excellent for sending small files across a business and to clients. I use this all the time to share files between my colleges and clients. Simple and easy to understand interface makes it easy for people without a expanded knowledge of computers to pick it up quickly.

Cons: Larger files and projects take a very long time to download, this sometimes results in them not downloading correctly or an error in the transfer. Would only use this software when transferring smaller files.

Overall: Great free product overall! Would recommend to any small business that doesn't require big file transfers. Documents and graphics work fine. Video and other larger files can get clumsy and my not work.

It's extremely easy to use. I use it whenever I have to send a large file that won't typically go through email, or whenever my client has firewall issues with certain filetypes (like zip files).

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

Pros: WeTransfer is a brilliant platform to send large files from one individual to another. WeTransfer was completely necessary in order to send files from one end of the country to the other as quickly as possible. I have yet to come across a platform that is as efficient as WeTransfer.

Cons: The only con is the file link to download is deleted after a few days from being sent. However, the downloaded copy is safe, so as long as it's downloaded in time it wouldn't cause issues.

Overall: WeTransfer allows for fast and efficient transfers of large files. The benefit is it eliminates other processes that are no longer necessary to send large files, it's much more simple now.

Pros: I love using it myself, but I like having clients use it even more. Clients who need to send me files that are too big to get through their email servers want to get me what I need, but they don't like confusing things or services that insist you sign up to use it. With WeTransfer, it's drag, drop, and go, and it's free for my clients. I love it. It's very efficient and easy to use.

Cons: There is nothing I don't like. If I had one constructive bit of feedback, it would be nice if they offered a paid option for less than the lowest rung (20 gig sends) that allows for maybe (4 or 5).

Overall: It's a valuable part of my workflow.
