MediaFire is now bringing its services to Android, and it’s got a whole bunch of space available and i mean really a lot, like 50GB a lot.
Android users will be given 50GB of free storage in the cloud service, though some limitations with the app may make that less appealing.
The storage service MediaFire has been offering online file sharing solutions for some time, now. When it released its app for iOS, it made 50GB of space available. For a cloud storage solution to stand out today, it needs to have something unique to it – something that no other cloud option can offer. MediaFire’s Android app has found a pretty strong hook for itself by offering users 50GB of free space in its virtual hard drive in the sky.
Like it’s iOS counterpart and the many cloud apps that came before it, MediaFire’s Android app allows users to upload and download files at whim. The app also allows users to search and view files that are stored in the cloud. MediaFire’s app isn’t quite as feature rich as, say, Dropbox, but it has the distinct benefit of offering up a whole lot more space for zero cost to the user. It will likely make for a great option for people running out of local storage space.
Now let’s talk about the limitations. An upload with a free account cannot be larger than 200MB (increased to 1GB with a $1.50 a month fee for the Personal plan). The service will also nudge you to move or interact with your files if they haven’t been touched in over 300 days. These might be deal breakers for some and mild inconveniences for others. Proceed to download as you see fit. The MediaFire app for Android is available for free in the Google Play Store.
