Good addition to a personal creative workflow
I have been a 53 paper user creating illustrations, design drafts for logos, wireframes etc for many years, along with other creation tools such as Procreate and Adobe Fresco. Working on each of these projects requires a lot of reference images / videos form a variety of sources. While previously using a combination of Pinterest and apple photos, I find this little app standing out for being simplistic and light weighted, allowing me to quickly organizing a handful of stuff for a specific project at hand. I love it that it does not offer much complex features, and it stands alone so I don’t have to pollute my own family photo albums when searching for references of Sphinx and Dragons.
There’re certain “basic” interactions I would love to see in this app that would really brighten the day for me. E.g Arrange layout of a board via drag and drop, make a certain image larger or smaller, using drag to move stuff to another board, use gesture to return to previous navigation steps. Etc. I have loved how paper provides affordances comparable to a real sketchbook via paper flipping and opening / closing gestures, and thus look for similar features in Collect, being a digital Clipping book equivalent.
All in all I enjoy using this tool so far and look forward to more improvements. I would recommend it to anyone who are in search of a pocket clip book in its most simple form.
Great app, will be better when boards aren’t mandatory
This is an edited review. I initially wrote a pretty scathing complaint about how the “board” system they adopted was too convoluted. At that time, I was in a hurry to send a couple of files to someone to prepare for a funeral. So, I wasn’t in the proper state of mind to handle change. I didn’t want to create a board or anything, I just wanted files transferred. It seemed like an overly confusing process.
Now, that I’ve cooled down a bit, I can say I still really love the app. The “boards” aren’t really that complicated and I can see their usefulness for many people. I still feel like it’s an unnecessary forced step for someone just wanting to send a quick file. But, it works just fine. However, the developers responded to my 1st review to say that they are working on a way to transfer files without having to create a board. Having both options will definitely increase the usability of this app and my appreciation of it.
Also, I apologize to the developers for being so hasty and harsh with my words. Funeral planning is not a good time to write a review
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. We're working on a feature that allows you to share without creating a board. Are there other things that you're missing?
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.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
