CNET Editors' review

Most of us are familiar with peer-to-peer file-sharing programs like Limewire, which allow users to connect directly with other people on the network to share music, movies, and other types of media. This type of file sharing can be fun and useful, but it also has its drawbacks; you never know if you're downloading what you actually think you are, and sometimes what you end up with is downright malicious. GigaTribe takes the concept of P2P file sharing and makes it more intimate; this ingenious program allows you to set up a private P2P network with your friends.

If you pressed us to come up with something about GigaTribe that we didn't like, we're not sure that we could. The program's interface is wonderful, both attractive and intuitive. In no time at all both we and a friend had installed it, created a network, and started sharing files. GigaTribe is more than just a file-sharing application, however; users can also create profiles, post blog entries, and chat with one another, all from within the interface. We especially liked the Transfers tab, which allows users to see at a glance exactly what they've uploaded or downloaded and to whom each file has been shared with. We do wish that the program had a comprehensive Help file: there's an online FAQ, but it's not very detailed. Overall, we think 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.

GigaTribe is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program to all users.

    "Does not work, charge different amount each month"

    July 24, 2013  |   By evilprincess_nc

    Version: GigaTribe 3.04.006

    Pros

    Absolutely none!!!!

    Cons

    I have been charged twice for $6.19 and $6.26 when it is supposed to be $5.99 a month
    I can never get it to connect properly.
    Customer Service is a bust!

    Summary

    I have been overcharged twice, when it is supposed to be $5.99 a month, plus I can never get it to even connect properly. Sometimes it makes it only to connecting and other times it will actually make it to the main screen but even then if I click on something it instantly pos up not responding. Customer Service is a bust and has not offered any help to fix these problems. Even after numerous messages back and forth. Also takes days to even get a reply from them. Being an Ultimate customer I am to be allowed speedy replies, lol. Gigatribe is a joke!

    "GIGATRIBE FORCING !!! PREMIUM MEMBERS TO BUY ULTIMATE"

    March 13, 2013  |   By davis287

    Version: GigaTribe 3.04.006

    Pros

    I AM A PAID LIFETIME PREMIUM MEMBER and I use to LOVE Gigatribe because it use to be a really GREAT Deal & it was Great to meet and SHARE files with other members .

    Cons

    NOW !! GIGATRIBE is FORCING LIFETIME PREMIUM MEMBERS TO BUY their ULTIMATE VERSION OR YOU GET "" QUOTA REACHED "" BUY ULTIMATE NOW MESSAGE . And that same thing is also happening to their FREE ! members .

    There NEVER use to be any QUOTA LIMITS on how many files you could Download or from what member you could download files from.

    And GIGATRIBE is NOT giving any HONEST ! answers about the QUOTA REACHED messages .

    Summary

    I WISH I WAS A LAWYER ! so I could SUE the of CHEATING companies like Gigatribe .

    If you BUY their Software then you will probably be SORRY later on .

    IF they SCREW their LONG TIME PAID Customers of 3,4,5 years then guess what they will do to you in the future !

    Updated on Mar 13, 2013

    Hello CNET ;
