Online storage locker MediaFire has announced a new Android app for accessing their cloud storage service. Users can download the app to start uploading their files from Android, and to easily access the files they store using the storage locker. Files can be uploaded from the app, and via the Android built-in sharing services.
While there are tons of storage services out there, and ones that interface via Android sharing, why check out MediaFire? Well, the service offers 50 GB of storage for free, though some features for sharing and uploading are limited, such as a 200 MB file size limit for free users, likely to try and curtail piracy. However, subscriptions starting at $18/year lift many of these limits for enterprising users, though only more expensive plans increase the amount of cloud storage available. Still, 50 GB is quite a lot. Interested users should note that there account sign ups must happen on the web before using the app, as there’s not a way to register from the app’s home screen, only a login window. MediaFire is available from Google Play.
