Great concept.
but the Mac App just simply doesn't work. Files don't get uploaded, the app say 1M from finishing and after 3 days still say the same message, leaving files unknown if uploaded or not successfully.
And with the new costs of 99 USD / month just make no sense to get such an expensive junkie. would be almost ok if at least worked.
Another problem is that often forgets your login, and you have to re-login, plus sometimes forget your computer too, that means all your sync are useless as now you have to resync everything.

Good concept but the Mac app is plagued with problems. In fairness so are the Android and iPhone ones! For usability it is no rival to Dropbox.

There are better ways to waste your time and trash your system. I am very patient with companies bringing new ideas but Bitcasa is just so bad...

There too many problems to write about. It's not ready for prime time. I purchased for a year, but if it is not fixed I will asked for a refund. I would not trust it for all my precious data.

It works really fast here in China, that is actually a surprise. So far the new version is working great (a bit of over usage of cpu, but it's ok).

compared to dropbox, well it's a different thing... but this one works better for backup, as you pick folders.

i'm using the free version, but if works stable, i may pay the 69$ for 1 year.

Bitcasa seems to be a great cloud storage, but the app for the mac is so unstable and crashes all the time, it creates a pain in the a...ss!

I know that the beta has just finished...but to me it's still a beta on the mac platform.

Have you tried version 1.0 of the Mac app yet? I've only been using it for a little bit today, but so far it's FAR more stable.

After playing with it a bit more I'm running into a lot of issues too. Two icons are showing in my menu bar, uploads are freezing with a few MB's left, etc ... It's too bad, because the idea certainly has a lot of potential.

Yeah...it really is a shame. But I'm counting on the team at Bitcasa to solve the bugs, but for now it's still a beta product to me.

One of the problems is probably MacFUSE. Why not use some native technology such as WebDAV?

The MacFuse issue causes other software that depends on it to fail (ie Expandrive.) Excessive crashes and system weirdness (including loss of USB after a crash.) I've asked for a refund. We'll see if I get it.
