What’s Included in the Power Pack?

1. Video Conversions

In the world of video content, format compatibility can be a major headache. Our video conversion feature allows you to seamlessly convert video files between various formats. Need to change MP4 to WebM for better web compatibility? Or perhaps you need to compress videos for mobile users? This tool has you covered.

2. Image Enhancement

Visual content is key to user engagement. With our image enhancement tools, you can offer your users the ability to improve their photos right within your app. This isn’t just about basic cropping and resizing; we’re talking about advanced features like auto-enhance, noise reduction, and smart filters.

Developer Tip: Implement these features with just a few lines of code, saving you from the complexities of image processing algorithms.

3. Virus Detection

Security is paramount in file handling. Our real-time virus scanning ensures that every file uploaded through your app is checked for potential threats. This feature uses a combination of signature-based detection and heuristic analysis to catch both known and emerging threats.

Security Note: Regular updates to our virus definitions mean you’re always protected against the latest threats.

4. OCR (Optical Character Recognition)

Transform images into editable text with our advanced OCR capabilities. This feature is perfect for digitizing documents, processing receipts, or extracting text from screenshots. Our OCR engine supports multiple languages and can handle various font styles and layouts.

Use Case: Imagine building a receipt tracking app where users can simply snap a photo, and all relevant information is automatically extracted and categorized.

5. Sentiment Analysis

Gain valuable insights from user-generated content without manual review. Our sentiment analysis tool can process text to determine the overall sentiment (positive, negative, or neutral) and even detect specific emotions. This can be invaluable for understanding user feedback or moderating comments.

Integration Idea: Use this in conjunction with your customer support system to prioritize urgent or negative feedback.

6. Document Viewer and Slider

Offer a smooth document browsing experience directly in your application. Users can view PDFs, Word documents, spreadsheets, and more without leaving your app. The slider functionality allows for easy navigation through multi-page documents.

UX Tip: This feature can significantly reduce bounce rates by keeping users engaged within your platform.

7. Accelerated Uploads

In the age of instant gratification, faster is always better. Our accelerated upload feature uses advanced algorithms and parallel processing to speed up file transfers. This is particularly useful for large files or in areas with unstable internet connections.

Performance Boost: On average, users see a significant improvement in upload speeds with this feature.

8. SFW Images

Maintain a professional and safe environment with our content filtering for images. This AI-powered feature can detect and filter out inappropriate or offensive visual content, ensuring your platform remains suitable for all audiences.

Compliance Note: This feature can help you meet various content moderation requirements, especially important for apps used in educational or professional settings.

9. Storage Aliases

Easily integrate your existing cloud storage (AWS S3, Google Cloud, Azure, etc.) with Filestack. Apply our powerful transformations and processing to your files without re-uploading or moving them.

10. Whitelabel Solutions

Seamlessly integrate Filestack into your app’s look and feel. Our whitelabel solution allows you to customize the file picker and other UI elements to match your branding. This ensures a consistent user experience throughout your application.

Branding Tip: Use this feature to reinforce your brand identity and create a more immersive user experience.
