Streamfile vs WeTransfer
Last updated: February 19, 2015
Streamfile.com allows anyone to “stream” files that are too big to email without any additional need of installed software other than a browser. Streamfile is a hosted FTP replacement solution that allows streaming functionality. By streaming, we mean that when an uploader sends a file, downloaders are able to start the download process immediately.
WeTransfer is a free service to send big or small files from A to B. WeTransfer users can send files up to 10GB in the free version.
Streamfile vs WeTransfer in our news:
2015 - File transfer service WeTransfer gets $25M
WeTransfer, the Dutch cloud-based service that lets users send files to each other that are too large to send as email attachments, has raised $25 million. WeTransfer competes with the likes of Dropbox, Box, Hightail, BitTorrent Sync and other file-sharing services that offer individuals and businesses a platform to share and transfer large documents, media files and other content that are too big to send by email. It positions itself a bit differently, though: more like their arty, laid-back Dutch cousin than a direct competitor, with a random selection of colorful wallpapers featuring monsters and other pictures in the background of an otherwise very simple user interface. No banner advertising and no requirement to register with the service to use it. “Transfer with style. Your style,” one homepage ad for the company itself reads.
