If you’ve ever downloaded a file or document from the internet, there’s a very good chance you might have come across MediaFire. It’s long been a favorite of desktop users and has now made the jump into the mobile space with applications for iOS and starting today, Android.
The initial release of the MediaFire application basically does exactly what it promises and isn’t loaded with features just yet. Luckily, that also helps the layout look very simple. After logging into your MediaFire account, all of your files will instantly pop up, just as you’d expect it to. From there, you have easy access to share, download, rename, move the file into another folder, and pretty much any other editing feature you’d want, right at your fingertips.
Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect out of the box:
- Keep all your important files at your fingertips
- View documents, spreadsheets, presentations, video, and listen to audio
- Take and upload pictures and videos directly in the MediaFire app
- Upload Android gallery images
- Create and manage folders of files
- Share files on the go via email, SMS, links and through other Android apps
- Quickly search all your MediaFire files and folders
MediaFire is also offering up 50GB of free cloud storage, so if you’re an avid cloud-sharer, this is an app you don’t want to pass up.
“We are very excited to expand our award-winning online storage and collaboration services to Android users around the world,” said Derek Labian, president and CEO of MediaFire. “2013 will mark a major year for online storage providers, and we plan to bring MediaFire to the forefront of this movement with the launch of several stellar products; stay tuned.”
Version 1 of MediaFire gets a lot right in terms of features, but we can expect many more to come. Even if you’re already invested in a competing application right now, MediaFire has entered the scene strongly with its mobile debut, and will only get better going forward. MediaFire for Android requires 2.2 and higher, and currently does not support tablets like the Nexus 7.
