Great when it works, so far only 30% of the time! Servers often too busy! Don't beg us to not give bad reviews. If your app frequently doesn't work you get a bad review! Regardless of whether your app is ad supported or free it should work consistently! If I had paid for this I'd be trying to get a refund by now! I have found a wifi transfer app that transfers from one device to another on the same wifi address. Doesn't require separate severs. No, not willing to give Snapdrop another try!

Hi, we are really sorry about this and we understand this can be frustrating. We have released a new version meanwhile which fixes these problems... Do you want to try it again :)

The app is really great, i use it a lot. Facing just one issue, when I transfer files to my computer and download them, windows displays a warning saying that the source of the file is not trusted. In order to keep the file i have to specially go to my downloads and explicitly give a declaration that i trust this website. This is not a huge problem really, but it just takes extra time and if this gets fixed your app/website will become perfect
