The business of storing files in the cloud is competitive, and MediaFire is looking to take a chunk of the business from DropBox and Google with a huge update that brings a brand new interface and a focus on collaboration. This should come in handy for many users. Not to mention, the company is offering 50GB of free storage space that is good for a lifetime, so there is no need for users to run out and update their account to keep the large amount of storage.
The new design features a clean file management home-screen that should make it easier for users to get in, find what they need and move along with their day. The update also adds a new feature designed to make managing photos a smoother process. It allows users to view and share their photos quickly.
A huge part of this update is improvements to the document editor. It allows users to collaborate and work on Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents directly in their web browser. While Google offers similar features with Google Drive, many users are more comfortable with Office file types, and this update for MediaFire has them covered.
The update also adds a native text editor for users looking to edit source code and simple text files directly from the cloud sharing service’s website.
All of this works with MediaFire’s desktop applications for OSX, Windows and Linux. The company also has applications available on iOS and Android, which should make it easy for users to get access to their files anywhere.
