"Good concept, needs better UI and more features"

What do you like best?

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.
