Figshare lets me store and publish research data pretty easily.
What do you dislike?
The process of uploading files to a new project could be simplified. Viewing files is also cumbers. Currently, figshare only works as a place for me to publish, not work on my materials. I want to be able to collaborate with other researchers.
