Jungle Disk Reviews

Jungle Disk and Customers abandoned by Rackspace

Negative Review by TheQwerty
about Jungle Disk and Google Drive, Dropbox, SpiderOak May 2012

While the software itself continues to work decently, I recommend looking at the alternatives.

All signs indicate Rackspace has abandoned Jungle Disk.

Nearly two years since the iOS app was updated. [August 3, 2010]
Over a year since the non-existent Android app was slated to be released. [January 26, 2011]
A year since the desktop client was last updated and the official blog was updated. [May 25, 2011]

Lately there's been a ton of movement in this sector: Apple, Google, and Microsoft are all entering the arena. Dropbox, SugarSync, and SpiderOak are all actively improving. With Cloud Drive/Player it seems likely Amazon will probably get in the consumer side of the game soon.

Meanwhile Rackspace and Jungle Disk have nothing to say but to wish us a Happy Thanksgiving.

Between Rackspace shutting the lights off on existing customers with no word of what is going on and the numerous alternatives that haven't been left for dead there is no way I can recommend anyone start using Jungle Disk + Amazon S3 today.
