Editors' review

This file-sharing app is designed to search for, download, and upload all types of files, but its performance didn't come close to matching its promises.

TrustyFiles Pro downloaded quickly, but the installation took a bit longer than we expected; further, you must supply some basic contact info to install the test version. The app boasts an attractively designed, simple interface that lends itself to intuitive use for downloading.

Unfortunately, its performance doesn't match the excellence of its appearance. In our tests, the app failed to return search results, and it crashed twice. The demo limit of 60 minutes is another strike against this program. With performance issues and unreasonable time limitations, we can't bring ourselves to recommend this app.

    ""Oh my god, did that suck?" --Bill Murray, Scrooged"

    Version: TrustyFiles Pro 3.1.0.22

    Cons

    This applicationg was horrific. From the complete lack of useful options all the way to the ugly pink interface. Nothing seemed intuitive and nothing worked. Of all the networks it "uses" it only connected to one. The others remained in a "Connecting" state for the entire duration. Additionally, from my searches, I did not receive a single result and there was no status of what the application was doing. Was it searching? Was it done? WHAT?!?!?

    Even using the application was a ruffle of the feathers. Typing a search term and adding it to the "queue", if that's what it was, did not return the curor to the search term field. You had to navigate back to it to type another search. I don't know about you, but I routinely don't know the exact term I'm searching for so I will search for a few terms that are relative to each other.

    I guess I should not have expected it to be useful, or not even work at all as was the case from the moment it opened and the pink glow of EVERYTHING consumed and burned the retinas in my eyes.

    Stay away from the application. It's the worst!
