Filesloop review

Our score

The Good

Filesloop is a simple service that can downloads torrents. It has a built-in multi-index search bar that can find many files on certain file hosting services (Mediafire, Uptobox, and Hugefiles) or it can discover torrents on hand-picked public trackers. Adding torrents via the search button is simple. You can also list popular downloads which are downloaded faster due to the higher number of seeds. The free tier gives you downloads up to 1 GB. If you download a video file, you can watch it inside the simple video player which handles most of the formats and has a converter that is capable of handling rest of the formats. In rare cases, you can encounter some codec issue, but in that case, you can download the file into your computer. Their video player has support for subtitles from Opensubtitles, which is always a good sign. You can also upload your own subtitles.

The Bad

The design is trying to be responsive, but it has no scroll, which means is impossible to use it. That is a blow for people who would like to use it on the go. The torrent downloader is slow when you don't use popular torrents. Downloading from the picked file hosting services could be faster. The cloud is a simple chronological list of all downloaded files, there is no organization whatsoever. It gets confusing quickly, which is why you will get annoyed by it. There is no connectivity to other clouds and no automatization (no RSS). Download to your local machine is not reliable, and it is slow in all tests. That is why the Filesloop team recommend JDownloader because of its resume download functionality. Without it, it is not suggested to use this service. It is more than three years since the public heard about the work of the development team. It seems that Filesloop will remain in its Beta forever.

The Conclusion

Filesloop has a great video player with subtitles and a powerful search tool that simplifies torrent adding. These features are essential for user comfort. However, the rest of the current implementation lowers the user experience. The user interface is too simple and doesn't look right. Downloading from their servers is unreliable and forces usage of third-party software. The torrenting is slow, and Filesloop doesn't seed, which makes using private trackers a considerable risk. And the broken mobile support is just a cherry on the top. Their cloud needs a significant rework as the rest of this project. Hopefully, this will be solved when one day, developers will decide to take it out of the beta phase.
