Review WeTransfer

Brandon Girod
6.9Good
Has a beautiful aesthetic, really easy to use
Ultimately serves no real purpose, limits your file uploads to 10 mb, only allows you to send photos in your dcim file; so no screenshots or downloaded photos
WeTransfer for Android is a confused app that's only purpose in the world is to make everyone take one more step than necessary. The idea is that it lets you take pictures from your device, upload it to the app's servers, and then email a link to a friend. Never mind the fact that Android has been able to do this, directly, since its inception.
Temporarily ignoring the app's obsolescence, the app works relatively well and looks really great. You're presented with a beautiful splash image when you first open it up and swipe down to get to a list of your gallery from a grid perspective. Unfortunately, you can't get into any other folder other than your DCIM folder. This means that images you've downloaded or screenshots you've taken can't be sent. So let's put this into perspective. You can send any photo on our device via email, or text, or SMS, or literally any other communication app you already have on your device, without having to use another app's servers. Then this app comes along and wants you to do the same thing, while probably throwing some clause in their terms of service giving it access to any photos that pass through their services. Nope!
WeTransfer is definitely an app you can safely pass up because you don’t need a third party app to do what it does. Native Android can handle this on its own already, and won’t force the recipient to download the image from another website. The file will pop up straight in the email.

Just had a look at Wetransfer again and the FREE version can now transfer files up to 10GB
And the paid version up to 20GB plus other features.

Can't believe what was said in Brandon Girod's review. WeTransfer is superb, and use it for all large file transfers. It is not limited to 10mb as stated by Brandon - The free version allows transfers up to 2GB, which is huge. Email and whatsapp cannot even get close to Wetransfer file sizes, in fact gmail and whatsapp size limit is around 20mb, if that. You can transfer documents with ease, large apk files (particularly useful when playstore thinks your phone doesn't have enough memory to update an app), and even a full length movie of around 2 hours long. Its SUPERB.

Hey Glyn, thanks for writing in. This review was written over a year ago, is it possible that at the time the upload limit was smaller?

Hi Brandon. Thanks for your reply. I've been using Wetransfer for many months, but perhaps not for for when you wrote your review. For me it has always been free up to 2gb, but it would appear that now it is still up to 2gb online, but a massive 10gb via the android app. Give it another chance, its really useful. It really gets me out of trouble updating a couple of old android phones where playstore says there's not enough space. I extract the apk on my "best" phone, use wetransfer to send it to my other phones, and heypresto, I can update the apps. Cheers.
