The absolute best file sharing company bar none

What do you like best?

Digital Pigeon stand alone at the pinnacle of file sharing companies. While other companies promise the world, Digital pigeon actually deliver and here's why.

Massive files can be shared very securely and faster than by any other means in a highly customizable interface in a truly unlimited way. Many other services will throttle your delivery speed or number of downloads once you hit a certain threshold for sharing large files, but they don't tell you what that threshold will be until you hit it.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I have a folder with thousands of files and because of their file structure system you can't upload these files at a root level. It's simple to fix by just embedding them in a folder before uploading but I do forget sometimes !

Recommendations to others considering the product

compare the maximum file size you can upload. Even the unlimited services you'll find do have limits if you have to share a large file with a lot of people.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. The only company that let's you have very large individual files. I have some single Quicktimes that are larger than 10Gb. All the other file sharing companies choke on very large files.

2. Personalised sharing and uploads. They allow you to highly customise and create your own page for sharing individual files.

3. No limits or throttling on downloads of large files when you share large files with many people.

4. Able to display almost every kind of visual file. Even obscure file formats like DNG come up in a web page to view. and plenty of options for video file playback interface.

Digital Pigeon rules!

What do you like best?

I looove everything about it! I cannot imagine my work without it! How otherwise could I distribute my show on so many TVs in a blink of an eye? How could I not be amazed by the fact that I'm instantly noticed when any one of these access my file? And I know that they appreciate the possibility to preview the file before downloading it!

What do you dislike?

Actually, nothing. But if you want more characters, I'll repeat: actually, nothing! :)

Recommendations to others considering the product

I absolutely recommend it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I said, fast and reliable distribution of my show to quite a lot of TV stations, with the extremely useful feature of being noticed when any of these access my file. Plus preview feature, of course... and last but not least, months of accessibility to my files.

What File Storage and Sharing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Helps my website design an digital marketing agency business more than I could have imagined

What do you like best?

Being able to send clients their own upload link so that I can receive files from them is our main use for this tool. For web agencies, getting content from clients is always the hardest part of a project. Digital Pigeon makes the management of this so much simpler.

I also like receiving alerts when things are happening via Slack.

What do you dislike?

I have no issues with the software. It's obviously incredibly fast and reliable - and it just works.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting large amounts of content from clients. Without a doubt, this has made the whole process simpler. But we know you use it to send work to our clients with their own branding. They always comment on how professional the file service is and like that's it intuitive.

Your client review delivery method search ends here.

What do you like best?

Ease of use, view notifications, speed. Uploads are much faster than WeTransfer, Hightail or Dropbox, and you can have the app notify you when your client/recipient views their file - this alone makes it worthwhile! Fantastic customisable branded interface gives your business a professional look. And most importantly, it's very easy to use!!

What do you dislike?

At this stage, can't import gmail contacts. Also, no android app. Major Bummer! Hopefully this will change soon.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just do it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The fact you can be notified when a client views their file is a big one for me. They can then share it amongst their recipients (this is also customisable) with your branding still intact too. It's solid, I've never had an error. And you can keep your files on the server for as long as you like. (plan dependent)

Another hidden surprise - you can easily stream the file on your phone quickly - the app downconverts a high res file for quick playback on a mobile device.

Perfect solution for all my client needs

What do you like best?

I like that I can send any file type...not only Quicktime movies...but audio files or project files. I'm not limited only to upload video for clients to review, I can get them elements of the projects as well. And I LOVE that we get notifications when a client accesses and downloads or views what we post. Because then you can either remind them when a lot of time has passed when you posted it, or prod them for notes if too much time is passing, and the clients can't lie and say "Oh, i haven't seen it yet."

I like that I don't need to tie it to clients. I don't need to authorize a select few people to "collaborate" with. I have my regular clients, and then I have the occasional one-off clients that I need to send things to...and I don't need to add them to any collaboration list, I just add their email and they can see it. They can also forward the email to other to view.

And I can use it to send my mom and dad a quick video of the kids without posting it to YouTube...give them something to download.

I like that things remain on the server for a specified time of my choosing. Either the default 90 days, or indefinitely. Up to me. As I have clients who consistently need to access a file, who don't download things.

What do you dislike?

That a client can't send something my way. They need to use Google Drive or WeTransfer. But it's not that big of a deal...not a deal breaker by ANY means.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm solving getting video files to clients to watch, and to download and watch, or keep...without needing to post on VIMEO or YOUTUBE and password protect. I can get them not only video files, but data files as well, project files, or music, or pictures.

Fastest and most elegant file transfer service around

What do you like best?

Firstly, you cant look past the sheer speed of the uploads and downloads. We've used everything and honestly, nothing else can compete. Digital Pigeon will use as much bandwidth as you can throw at it. We're using a Fibre 100/40 connection and are sending files ranging from a few hundred megs up to 200GB at a time. Speed is important for us as a business because our clients don't like to wait (and to be honest, neither do we).

Secondly, it looks great. All our download pages are custom branded and recipients receive nicely formatted emails when they have files to access. It makes for a really slick user experience for our own customers, and it helps maintain our brand.

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything that we dislike, more just features that we would love to see in the future. eg. Keyboard shortcuts in the desktop app, integration with a ITTT service etc. But these are all cherries on top.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you use WeTransfer, Dropbox, Hightail etc to send files, then you'll be amazed by how fast and reliable Digital Pigeon is. And the people receiving the files will love it too.

This software has become a core tool for us at Post Lab IO and we use it every day on every single job. We're a services business and the product our customers take away are FILES. So the way in which our customers receive their files from us is super important.

Everyone I've recommended this to has loved it, and its becoming the default tool of choice for post-production companies in Melbourne.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Large file transfers, file access and video previews have always been the bane of post-production. Our processes with clients are very repetitive, we export a video, upload to a video sharing service, send them a link. When you're doing this dozen of times a day, and for multiple clients, it starts to get messy. And you lose out on our own brand to whichever video sharing site you use. With DP, the time-consuming part is automated, we export the video and drop it into DP, its up and away within minutes and the client gets an email.
