    Chanty is very good for networking messaging and low level collaboration between peers and colleagues. It's not great for video or voice calls or whiteboarding or file sharing.

    MediaFire

    MediaFire is a great cloud storage platform for individual users or specific departments to use. There isn't enough enterprise management tools for MediaFire to be used in larger companies that need to control the tools that their end-users are using. Setting up the MediaFire cloud platform is pretty straightforward so you don't necessarily need a dedicated storage team to get it up and running and do day-to-day administration.

    Pros

    Chanty

    • Notifications
    • App loading speed
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MediaFire

    • FileDrop feature. This is an amazing functionality that increases collaboration among our team. People can drop files in a specific folder related to a project and we can keep it organized.
    • Mobile Apps for Android and iOS. The apps works pretty well and you can carry your files everywhere.
    • Regular and Instant Uploads - MediaFire checks for the exact same file in the cloud. If it finds it, the upload will be instant. Otherwise, it proceeds with regular upload.
    • Multiple Upload Types - Basic, Flash and HTML5

    Cons

    Chanty

    • Ability to call group members
    • Ability to video members
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MediaFire

    • Download Page - When you generate a link to download some files it redirects users to a specific page where they can download the file. The page is sometimes confusing and with a lot of ads which can be a little bit annoying.
    • Customization Option - you can find a customization section in "Settings", but there are just a few things that you can really customize. Maybe improving this would be nice to allow you personalize your environment (for companies, for instance).
    • Blocked options for the free version - There are a lot of interesting options that are available just for business and pro versions. If you could at least test it before upgrading your version it would help users decide.
    • Lack of PC sync client - Would be great if you could install a PC client that would synchronize your files.
    • Problems when refreshing your files list in the browser. Sometimes it gets slow and you have to refresh the entire page to continue.

    I have been sent quite a few emails about functionality and support on a pretty regular basis, which is great. I have not had any need to contact support as the platform is pretty simple to use, it was easy to download and install and I have not encountered any bugs or other issues so far.

    Chanty

    In terms of file sharing and speed of collaboration, I find that Slack is quicker and integration into Google Drive is very handy when it comes to working on documents, I have not seen Chanty do this. As for video Google Hangouts is as simple as it gets; again, I have not seen anything from Chanty in this area. I have also looked at and use https://guild.co/ which is much easier messaging and collaboration wise. The app and notification for Chanty is pretty good but it's loading time is slower compared to Slack and WhatsApp.

    MediaFire

    Mediafire needs to improve the end user usability and design. The file encryption at rest and transfer needs to be available which is a default feature in most cloud based storage providers. 3rd party integration needs to improved like outlook etc for ease of file storage and access. The large file allowance ranks above other providers.

    MediaFire

    • Thanks to MediaFire I have been able to recover information stored many years ago on their servers, since they usually do not delete files after a certain time.
    • It has helped me to be able to backup sensitive information from long before the existence of massive clouds, so if you did not make these backups you had to lose all the information, but thanks to half fire that did not happen to me.
