What does Simple File Upload have that Uploadcare doesn't?

feeling proud image

Inexpensive, fixed pricing

At Simple File Upload, we don't believe in billing surprises. That's why we offer inexpensive, fixed pricing for every customer.

Uploadcare services are priced based on monthly usage. This can be confusing and expensive.

We want you to know what to expect when your bill arrives. With fixed pricing, you'll never have to worry about your bill.

Customizable upload widget

We want to make file uploading as painless and beautiful as possible. That's why we designed a file uploader widget that is completely customizable with no CSS.

Change the widget's icon, size, and colors to integrate with your existing UI. All with the click of a button. Check out our tutorial for more information.

The Uploadcare widget is customizable. But, you can only change the icon and size of the widget by overriding the existing CSS classes. That sounds like a lot of work for something that's supposed to be simple.

Convenient file tagging

Want to keep your files as clean and organized as your code? No problem.

Add tags to your files so that you can find any file at any time. Simply add a 'data-tag' with your desired string to the file uploader widget. This will automatically tag your uploaded files.

Visit your developer dashboard to see a list of tags. Click on each tag to view your indexed files. Add as many tags as you want!  

How does Uploadcare keep your files organized? They don't. Uploadcare does not offer file tagging. Check out our video tutorial on tagging to learn more about how Simple File Upload prioritizes file organization.

User-Friendly Dashboard

Are you interested in seeing what files have been uploaded to your web app?

No problem. Visit your developer dashboard to view all uploaded files side-by-side. Large image previews let you easily see uploaded files without reading through file names.

Uploadcare does not offer large side-by-side image previews of files. You have to click through each file to see a visible image.

It's frustrating, tedious work when all you want to do is quickly view your files. Keep it fast and easy with Simple File Upload.

Heroku friendly

Are your files vanishing on Heroku? This is because Heroku uses an ephemeral filesystem designed for temporary file storage. Learn more here.

Don't worry though. We can help. Simple File Upload is available as a Heroku add-on. With Simple File Upload, files are uploaded to S3 from your user's browser without touching your web app. This offloads the storage of static files from your web app to the cloud.

Basically, no need to worry about Heroku's ephemeral filesystem. Your files are safe and secure with us.

Uploadcare is not provided as a Heroku add-on. Don't waste your time trying to integrate a file uploader that isn't specifically designed for Heroku.
