I really don't do this often, but I'm feeling forced by circumstances to do it in this case. In general, my approach to dealing with software developers is praise in public, criticize in private. I read flames from disgruntled customers and most of the time, they just sound like vendettas or someone looking for a discount or free license. And, while such a diatribe may earn a rapid response from a developer, if your goal is to contribute to an application your generally like but have some issues with, it's not going to be likely to further that goal if your opening remarks are the equivalent of a flame-thrower. In this case, however, I don't have much other choice than to post a negative review. A few months ago, I subscribed to CloudApp as part of figuring out what I was going to do going forward in terms of online sharing that I could control and that worked best for me. Ultimately, I decided to go another way. So, I visited CloudApp's website to find the cancellation form. Imagine my surprise when, after slogging through their online documentation, I discovered that the only way a customer can actually cancel the service so they stop getting billed is by calling a telephone number. Ignoring the irony of this requirement from a company that makes it bones - and presumably, its revenue - from being all about online connectivity and functionality, I called the number. And got some kind of digital error. The voicemail system seemed stuck in a loop. I’m not sure what the problem was, but hey - these things happen. No big deal. So I resolved to try again later. Later turned out to be the next day or even the day after — I can’t honestly remember at this point, because it was a while ago now (don’t worry, I’m getting to that). This time, when I called back, I got what I assume I was supposed to get the first time: a high-quality voice-prompt system that thanked me for calling CloudApp and then led me through several options. However, when I got to the part about customer service and speaking with an actual representative - which is the only way to cancel the service, remember - the polite, high-quality voice said “customer service is now closed.” Seriously, I thought? I don’t remember what time of day it was and as I do customer support myself, I recognize that people have to actually sleep and have personal time — but I’m pretty sure I wasn’t calling at 3am during a fit of insomnia on that particular day. However, once again, I let it go and resolved to call back yet again. Well, it’s now many days later and I have - when I’ve thought of it - called at least three more times, each time receiving the polite female recorded voice telling met that customer support is closed right now. Cries, where the heck is CloudApp's customer service department located, Moscow? I’m now absolutely certain I’ve called both in the am and pm, EST, which should cover most of Europe as well as the west coast of the United States. And yet, still “closed.” Every. Time. So here I sit, literally weeks later, still trying to cancel CloudApp and still presumably being charged for the privilege of wasting my time thusly. The features of CloudApp aren't horrible. In my case, I just decided to go in a different direction, but I could see someone choosing this solution -- but you'd better be darn sure you plan to keep it forever, because apparently it's a bit like Hotel California -- you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. And you keep getting billed.

Great alternative to Dropbox, however, it can be used only for mac computers. Anyway, it's handy and helpful. I would recommend to try it.

Since the Dropbox has crashed on my macbook, I've been searching for some good alternative but more reliable, when the previous syncing app. So, the Cloud is a great choice, I think. It runs quickly, syncs smoothly and make me satisfied with the process. I don't think it's expensive for such a nice product.

In April I bought a CloudApp deal on sale - the 'Pro Rain Plan Lite' lifetime subscription which offered unlimited drag-and-drops and a 100Mb max file size of videos, gifs or screenshots. (Not sure this plan exists any more.) So far it's worked flawlessly and made sharing easy via Slack, chat or mail. And the screenshot links can also be used to embed graphics in messages on chat boards.

I really do not understand the low ratings of this great app. It is a awesome alternative to Dropbox, ones the best cloud services and Droplr. Too expensive? Really? The pricing is about the same to Dropbox and Droplr. Cloud is also the only app that never crashed on my older iMac. Rock solid performance. Recommenede !!

I went to CloudApp user from the time he was BETA. Later kept a yearly account Pro but currently I switched the CloudApp by Droplr, and already I'm thinking of switching the Droplr at JumpShare. Certainly the Droplr is a great service but still got the annoying limitation of 2 GB for limite size uploading. The CloudApp currently this prohibitive prices! VERY EXPENSIVE! Ridiculous! The basic account of the right to an upload with maximum file size of 500 MB. Simply ridiculous for a paying user. At least the JumpShare says no file size limit! I am looking for him!

This is perfect for sharing links among devices including Android tablets and phones, iPhones and iPad and PC, Macs all at the same time. If you share links with someone you trust a lot, you can just use the same account on multiple devices. Unlike junk like Google Drive, urls are easy to share and open right away all with one or two clicks. I also love how I can simply drag the URL icon from Safari straight to the cloud icon in the menubar and I'm done. At least when it comes to sharing links among multiple devices, it's simple to set up, straightforward and vastly easier to use than Google Drive, Dropbox (which I don't trust anyway), etc. While you can also upload files, I think it's a bit too limited for my preference. You can't create your own folders, etc. which is a major downside. It'd also be helpful to be able to create folders for links, so that's a bummer. Pocket is another app that's great for sharing links and I like how they handle links a little better than Cloudapp. For one, you can right-click on the bottom of listings to go stright to the URL in your browser, whereas Cloudapp doesn't have that option and you first go to a shortened url which then resolves to the URL. I've found this to be slow, so it's also a major downside. As far as saving links goes, I give Pocket the edge over Cloudapp. While Pocket doesn't have folders, you can tag items and organize that way. And something VITAL missing from Cloudapp is a SEARCH function like Pocket has. Also, Pocket has a handy Safari Extension available to add urls, I haven't found one that works with Cloudapp. I'm not going to compare this with Droplr, since that doesn't have a free option.

CloudApp is a great service if you can live with what the Free service offers. However, if this is not the case and you need to get the paid subscription then you are most likely better off with service such as Dropler which hase much higher shared file size limit (CloudApp 250MB and Droplr 2GB). That said for random casual use this is very nice and Free but when you need more serious service then it might be better to go with something like Droplr.

Since the "similar software" is not finding it, look at BitTorrent Sync if all you want is to sync files between devices anywhere you have an internet connection. There is no need for your files to be stored in any server along the way. Do a general search here at MU or go to http://www.bittorrent.com/sync. You do not need any servers... cloud or otherwise... to sync. Though still in beta at this time, I have been using it since release without a glitch. Read the PDF manual for how to refine both what it does and how it does it to control impact upon your local network. It can be easily refined. And yes it is free. [I am not associated to this package / group / project in any way.]

MAS only?!? Another one? I know MU staff don't like ratings about the distribution methods of apps, but going MAS only kills users choice. And not having choice directly attributes to the User experience with a software. Pretty sad about this move. So now looking into setting up owncloud with screenshot uploading feature and be done.

The AppleScript support makes CloudApp upload very simple, fast and useful with applications such as Alfred 2. There is also an option (in app preferences) to copy the direct link to the clipboard. Perfect for screenshots. Kudos!

Recently Clouds menubar icon shows a weird behaviour. It places itself above the menubar of the current application, if the menubar gets to short on my 13" Macbook. See the following screenshot: http://cl.ly/image/0q3H033m1g3q Happens frequently. Quitting and restarting Cloud helps shortly, but eventually the behaviour reoccurs. None of the other menubar apps I have installed does this, so I assume it must be related to Cloud. Has anyone else seen or experienced this? Giving the app a 5-star rating nonetheless for its otherwise supreme functionality and hoping for a fix.

Does ver. 1.5 require 10.5 as noted here on MU or does it require 10.6.6 as noted on the getcloudapp-website? (Note: you need to be logged in to access the download-area). Just wanted to know since I trashed the 1.0.3 dmg and don't want to overwrite with a version that doesn't run on 10.5.8.

I used to use this application. However I found that it would regularly crash while uploading. Files that did get through were not to be found. Got to the point where it was simply useless which was a shame 'cause I really liked the idea. Found the alternative: Droplr. Same principle... menu bar icon that you drag images to etc but it simply works. Well integrated with Twitter - if you use that service. Only drawback is you need a Twitter account to sign up.

I really loved CloudApp, its super ease of use and its design before they implemented the "Pro" version some months ago. Since then even with the paid Pro version the file maximum limit is 250 MB. I would like to pay for the service but with that low limit the CloudApp service doesn't make sense for me any more since I work with my team on video files which are up to 750 MB. It's a pity: Great idea, great design - but they didn't manage to adapt their product to market's needs now for months.

An absolutely fantastic way to share stuff online. However there is something that bugs me, Fullscreen images that are lager than my monitor size currently do not auto resize to my screen resolution. This is annoying to me and other people I send images too. Have the images resize to the browser window size and make it so that clicking on the image resizes it to full size. Yes I'm aware of adding /content to the URL, it just is another step to do and time consuming.
