I have to give minbox a low grade as it keeps crashing after a long time but not before the first upload is finished. Combine this with the inability to resume after the crash and you have pretty much useless app for a good service in theory.

I can't live with theories alone even though I appreciate the effort.

I initially rated Minbox very poorly, given the long wait time to access the app. However, since my previous review, I have had time to use Minbox on a regular basis and find it very useful for my particular routine. For someone like me, who has little reason to purchase a paid Dropbox account (though I do love Dropbox), Minbox is perfect for sending large video files (500MB+) to coworkers. No issues with upload or download speeds.

I did have an issue with the app crashing when I tried to access the preferences, but I received a response and a fix within 24 hours of my initial message.

The wait was long, and the app still isn't absolutely perfect, but it is certainly much, much better than I initially thought it would be.

Utterly Incapable of moving files of any substantial size.

Perfectly functional with ultra-small text files and the like.

Another 3 days waiting (now >7 days in total) and still getting delaying message: "You're next up, but we're under unexpectedly high load. Please wait for your invitation to be ready... "

so my question is - is anyone out there actually using it? are there real-world users out there ?? (real-world users not affiliated with the company - let's have some independent verification that the app exists and works as described please)

until such verification/proof of use/existence is forthcoming, I suggest the app is vapourware...

I also had a 4 day wait time, which is now up to a total of 7 days given the "unexpectedly high load" they claim they are under. This appeared to be a good alternative to dropbox sharing/file sharing sites, but this wait to use it is just silly. Maybe Minbox wasn't quite ready for a public release. Vaporware indeed.

ok, so having waited my 4 days + for access, I now see the message " You're next up, but we're under unexpectedly high load. Please wait for your invitation to be ready..."

it's a crock! vapourware!! a con! does not function/does not exist (take yr pick). it's a scam. Time to delete from my system. Can't review app performance as I have yet to be able to use it. Can't review app features, ease of use, value or stability because it doesn't exist.

ok, so to use it, you need an 'access code'.
Fine, type in email and get told due to high demand, "can't let you in immediately" with a waiting time of 4 DAYS and 10HOURS before I receive my access code.

Alternative is to push the button that says "Get in Faster" and have a series of "tweeps" - share the joy using Twitter - well, I don't have a Twitter account, so I have to wait 4 days and 10 hours to get an access code.

NOT IMPRESSED to say the least. Do I dump the app or do I wait 4+ days for an access code only to see what the next hurdle is?

0.5 star for the moment (being highly generous!!). IF I decide to wait 4 days, will post experiences after receiving my access code.

so can I use this on my own home network to send files from one machine to another, or does the destination computer have to be somewhere else? not clear from web page/info on dev's site
