Avoid long uploads!

We noticed things taking longer than usual, here's what we know...

  1. Slow upload progress is normally due to a slow internet connection
  2. Most internet connections are faster at downloading than uploading
  3. It's quicker to download our desktop app than wait for slow uploads

The file you’ve added here will continue to upload while you try out our desktop app, so there’s nothing to lose!
