    Visit the homepage ( http://www.filegoose.com ). What is your first impression? Is it clear what the product does?

    Before coming to the product i would like to say what the page conveys with its beautiful and refreshing colors, it conveys calmness soothing and peace, when your home page opened i was like ‘wow’ and i just stared at it for couple of seconds, now i don’t know if its a good news or a bad news for you:)) but i didn’t wanted to click away at all, it was so soothing i just wanted to look at it for some time, it felt like floating in a sea:)
    The text are very bold and clear and yet to the point in telling what it is about, one does not have to think twice as what the site does, filegoose is about managing your files and data in an easy manner, it saves your time and makes it comfortable.

    Visit the features page ( http://www.filegoose.com/features ). Are the feature descriptions clear? Is the design OK?

    Although the overall descriptions are very clear and easily understandable but i cant say they are very attractive, i am not satisfied with the text and colors, the size of the heading is fine but it should be in black and bold to be more prominent, then comes the description text, i would say its size is too small, the font should be a little larger .
    What don’t you like?

    So far what i did not like is, there is too much white in the features page with such tiny fonts, its some what not so impressive as compared to the home page, and besides the images at right side of the page are just not clear, one cannot figure out as for whats been shown in the image, i think if you have to display images it should be very clear one can understand it without reading its description or else there should not be any images at all.

    Vist the sign-up page (http://www.filegoose.com/sign-up/). Possibly Sign-up for a free account (takes a few seconds).

    Initially yes it took only a couple of seconds but later then it took a hell lot of a time, there was some error saying either my url or my email is already in use, so i never thought that my email is in use, i kept changing my url and still when it did not worked after several attempts i then thought of changing my email and luckily it accepted this time i dont remember ever using this site before i dont know why it says it has an account with my email, may be its a long long time back i don’t remember any how what i disapproved is the fact that the error should be more specific in telling me what the problem is, and secondly when it shows the error it ask you to go back on the sign up page and see if you can fix it where as i say the error itself should be seen on the signup page so it saves you the time to click and go back on the signup page i hope you got my point.

    Would you sign up for a free trial/free account? If not, why?

    Yeah sure definitely i would sign up for a free trial account, and believe me every individual has got something to do with files and documents either a student, a professor, a normal employee, people with any line of work; and as long as the trial account is free no one would hesitate to sign up and use it, once charged something everyone will have second thoughts for a trail account. Once gotten use to it and finding it comfortable and user friendly they might easily upgrade for a fees as well but not initially.

    Browse the app as you please. How do the features work? Is it easy to use?

    Once when you understand the site its very simple and easy to use , but initially i clicked here and there didnt know what to do neither could i found the upload button it took some time to find it:) it should be more clear, bold and right on top somewhere. but after settling down i rather enjoyed using its features have also uploaded some pics but it took a hell lot of a time for the pictures to be uploaded, all were in jpeg format but still it took a lot of time.

    Any additional comments would be much appreciated. Thanks

    The idea and the purpose of filegoose is no doubt very useful and of course having your separate URL makes it more attractive. Using filegoose definitely secures all your documents, no need to worry about losing all your data anymore if in case your windows get corrupted or it needs to be formatted, like it happened with me couple of months back and i lost all my data. 
    On the other hand i have already mentioned the elements i wasn’t satisfied with, one more thing i would like to add is, i mentioned earlier about the images on the features page not so visible, i would confess that i did not figure out that they can be clicked and get enlarge, now i dont know if it was my lack of observation or you need to work on the images a bit more in a manner so that everyone should know that they can be enlarged.

    Hi Nimbler,
    Great comments, thanks. I’m not sure what the problem with the uploads not appearing, it should be instant. I’ll have a look and see if there area any errors in the log and get back to you.
