You might not be a registered member of MediaFire, but chances are high that you have downloaded some file from the service at least once. MediaFire is quite widely used, and is the first choice for file sharing/hosting for a lot of people. If you have ever uploaded a file to MediaFire, and have an account for the service, you can now use MediaFire from your iPhone, thanks to its official client that has just been released in the App Store. The app has a beautiful interface, but the MediaFire app is not just about beauty, and offers some really good features. You can do just about anything using the app that is possible via the service’s desktop version, as the iPhone client offers upload/download of files, account management, file viewing and even media streaming. The best thing about the app is that you can upload photos and videos directly from your iPhone’s camera or photo library, and you will get 50GB of free storage space!
The app does not come with an option to let new users sign up for an account, and you will only be able to use the app if you have already registered for an account on the MediaFire website. You can sign up there for free, or you might want to take a look at some of the packages offered by MediaFire to gain access to unlimited storage and Pro services. Whichever account type you have, you can use your credentials to sign in to the MediaFire app. The first menu that comes up after logging in is the file list. All the data you have got stored in your account is shown here, and even if some of the file formats are not recognized by the app, you can still rename, move, delete and share them.
Most of the popular file formats are supported by MediaFire, and you can view them within the app. Documents, photos, videos and music can be opened in MediaFire, and the app has got nice players for all these files. To see the detailed list of functions that can be performed on an individual file, hit the arrow next to its name. The sidebar that comes up allows users to rename the file, share its link via email or SMS, delete it or move to any folder. The button at the bottom of the screen will allow you to create new folders, and upload photos right from your device. From the app’s settings menu, users can change their account details, and toggle on push notifications.
MediaFire is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch, with the Android version expected to be released soon. You can grab the app for free by heading to the following link.
