GigaTribe gets a 5-star review from CNET

We just got a 5-star review, in CNET, one of the major computer internet download directory website. GigaTribe is the “Risk-free P2P”.

“the program’s interface is wonderful, both attractive and intuitive. GigaTribe is more than just a file-sharing application … GigaTribe is a great program, and that it could be useful for both groups of friends who want to share files for fun as well as coworkers who need an efficient way to transfer documents…”

  1. Version 3.1 sure does sound nice and it’s nice that it got such a good rating on CNet.

    They must have been rating an older version though.

    Based on their review, I decided to try it to share pictures and videos with family members.

    Download and setup went fine on my Windows 7, 64-bit machine. But when I tried to use it, it would crash after 2 minutes. I even tried installing it on another of my computers running XP 32-bit and it did the same thing.

    Help for this issue seems to be non-existent on the website or the facebook page.

    It’s now been uninstalled and the time I spent on it has been labeled “wasted.”

  2. Hi,

    Is it possible to add a feature to the “edit shared folders” dialog to exclude certain filetypes from being shared (in subfolders too)? Like browser cache files for example..

  3. Oh and also, when I click on the chat tab for a user or group it would be nice if the focus is automatically set to the text input field at the bottom. 🙂 It seems to sometimes do this but not all the time.

    Otherwise 3.x is great!

  4. Thanks, Arnaud. While I’m requesting features, what about:

    – logging for transfers, especially uploads – it’s annoying if gigatribe disconnects and then reconnects and clears the transfer window of all completed transfers… so you don’t know who has taken what without asking them afterwards.

    – maybe splitting downloads/uploads into a per user tree.. still having the main transfer tab with downloads and uploads but inside each section, have user names with their respective downloads or uploads inside that. like:

    User A
    File A
    File B
    User B
    File C
    File D

    so you could collapse User A or User B like:

    User A
    User B

    and tidy up the transfer window. 🙂

    Just some thoughts! Keep up the good work.

  5. It deleted my spacing before the lines so it’s not clear, try:


    – USER A
    File A
    File B
    – USER B
    File C
    File D


    + USER A
    + USER B
