Likelihood to Recommend

Chanty

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

It is well suited for large file sharing and file syncing. Easy to collaborate the files and provide access. File encryption, some features are pretty limited like the ease of use on front end as well. Customer support can be better and improve customer loyalty. Design can be improved for easier navigation and use.

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

  • Ability to call group members
  • Ability to video members

  • Personally, I have used MediaFire for a long time and I was on a free version that had some limitations. Ads would pop out, storage space was less, and full features of the services were not accessible. However, the premium version solves all these problems and gives a great ease of use with full control.
  • 10GB storage is less than Google Drive's 15GB

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.

Alternatives Considered

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

We have primarily chosen MediaFire due to its simplicity and its quickness in uploading/downloading files. However, if you don't want to pay for MediaFire, Google Drive would be a better alternative as it has no ads and provides more free space.

Return on Investment

  • Increased visibility
  • Increased opportunities

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.
