Creately

Very good online option for flowcharts and other purposes; can be quite cost-effective, too, depending on how you use it.

MediaFire

MediaFire is suitable for individual users that want to store and maybe share files. It has a good initial space in the free version that can be enough for most users. The same applies for small teams that want to store documents (text, presentations) and share it between members (FileDrop features can help increase collaboration and productivity). If you have a big team or want to store big files you have to upgrade to the business or pro version (the price is interesting).

Pros

Creately

  • Creately provides the same experience that other similar tools (i.e. Visio) provides, but presents it in a much more colorful, unique manner. The colors are vibrant, and my clients have always been impressed with the quality and feel.
  • Creately provides a lot of creative control over how your images look. I can play with the opacity and color scheme, or use what they already provide.
  • Creately also allows me to create wireframes for clients to review, whether desktop or mobile. I can create simple, easy to understand frames and concepts in minutes - they're super professional looking and ready to share.
  • I like the pricing model. Right now I can pay month-to-month, or pay a one-time fee for a year. It's also less expensive than Visio, which is very nice.

MediaFire

  • Speed and ease to upload and download files.
  • Available for iPhone, Android, OSX, Windows, and Web.
  • Has no limit of downloads.
  • Give you a considerably large size of space within your servers.

Cons

Creately

  • The transition Creately made this year to their new non-Flash platform seems to almost function like a beta release in some instances.
  • Customer support sometimes takes a while to return and the responses are not always the best or most helpful. Follow up isn't great, either.

MediaFire

  • The 10GB Overall File Storage Limit. I really don't like this and I wish it were a 10GB limit per file. But I understand Mediafire wants to have some sort of limit with the Free accounts.

I haven't used Creately's support. I don't know what to rate this to be honest. If there was an "N/A," I'd use that. I like products where I don't have to do a lot of research or studying to learn how to use the software. Creately allows me to jump in and go.

Alternatives Considered

Creately

In terms of pricing and functionality, Creately was the clear winner at the time, although the jury is still out on Creately's new version in terms of how simple it may be to use.
Mike Eisenberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

MediaFire

All of these solutions stack up pretty well but there are some differences between them. MediaFire is very easy to use and manage files and documents. With a 10 GB you can do many things and share many documents with the team or the department which is what made us decide to use it officially in our team.

Return on Investment

Creately

  • Creately is less expensive and dare I say more professional looking than Visio. It looks great at a fraction of the price.
  • Creately allows me to share ideas and processes with my clients. It shows that I understand their business processes, and increases their trust in my abilities to work with them.
Richard Crane | TrustRadius Reviewer

MediaFire

  • It has allowed me to easily share files with clients and friends
  • No computer client does make things a little slower/more complicated to upload to the cloud
  • Allows me to easily work on a project with someone else and recover a previous file in case of mistakes
