You’ve probably heard it said that everything from Texas is always bigger. Well, it’s true. Perhaps that’s why Media Fire is growing and spreading like, well, wildfire.
Never heard of Media Fire?
That’s okay. Today not only will I let you in on one of the fastest growing cloud service providers, but I’ll show you a few reasons why you too should consider Media Fire.
Media Fire – A Brief Overview
Like most cloud storage services, Media Fire is a great way of expanding your storage capacity by saving your files in the mysterious cloud. Well, it’s not really mysterious once you understand that the cloud is just a server that hosts all your files.
The biggest advantage of cloud services like Media Fire is that they allow you to store large files like multimedia in a secure and easy-to-access place. This makes it possible for you to save a project and continue working on it on another device and in a completely different location.
Cloud storage definitely is the next greatest invention after the internet.
And Media Fire is one of the oldest cloud service providers, despite it not being as popular as other cloud storage providers like Dropbox or Google Drive.
So why should you even consider Media Fire if it’s in the shadows of other bigger cloud storage service providers?
That’s a great question. And I’ll do my best to give an equally good answer.
5 Good Reasons to Choose Media Fire as Your Cloud Storage
With all the different file hosting services around, choosing one that you will entrust with all your precious documents and memories can be quite a daunting task. Although many people run to the more popular options because they are the only ones they have heard of, there are other options that may actually be more tailored to suit your lifestyle.
And Media Fire is one of them.
Let me give you x reasons why you should consider it as your cloud storage service of choice.
1. Storage – Very Generous
One of the biggest reasons you need to go the Media Fire route is the fact that it is one of the most generous cloud storage providers around. On the free plan, which starts at 10GB, you can actually get a maximum of 50GB free storage.
Upon signing up for your Media Fire account, you automatically get an impressive 10GB of free storage. In order to get more free storage, Media Fire requires that you perform a few simple tasks for them, such as sharing on social media (mainly Twitter and Facebook), referring your friends, downloading the app, and many other tasks.
Compared to the storage space offered by the big boys, the 10GB that Media Fire gives is quite impressive, especially if you compare it to Dropbox’s paltry 2GB.
2. Excellent Mobile Support
In its earlier versions, Media Fire had excellent cross-platform support. Unfortunately, though, they decided to get rid of most of their clients. Today, however, Media Fire is more focused on providing effective storage solutions for mobile users. Whether this was a wise move or not is still to be seen. But one thing that is in their favor is that more and more people are using mobile devices that run iOS and Android as compared to PCs.
If you consume most of your digital media over a mobile device, then Media Fire is definitely the cloud storage solution for you.
Getting started is pretty easy as all you have to do is register your account and download the app to your device. This will automatically earn you 2GB extra of storage. The user interface is actually very clean and easy to use, another positive virtue in Media Fire’s favor.
One thing you will definitely love about Media Fire is that it automatically backs up photos. This makes it impossible for you to lose your precious memories in an unfortunate eventuality that may lead to your phone being damaged.
Speaking of uploading files, Media Fire has a trick up its sleeve in this department. A “power upload” function. This is a function that doubles the upload speed for those times you need to upload files quickly (which is most of the time seeing we are an impatient generation). Be warned though, this function is a power guzzler and it is advisable that you use it when your device is connected to a charger.
Media Fire is definitely a great choice if you are looking for a great way to expand your mobile device’s limited storage. The only drawback is that the lack of desktop clients makes it a bit difficult to sync and share files across devices. But you can go around this by using the Media Fire website to backup and store your files.
3. Unlimited Bandwidth
One thing that you don’t need when using a cloud storage service is slow to upload and download times as they can be more than frustrating.
This is another reason you need to consider Media Fire.
With unlimited bandwidth, Media Fire promises top-notch speed whether you are using the App on your mobile device or the website on your PC. Whether on the go or at your workstation, the unlimited bandwidth will ensure that you get things done, and quickly.
The unlimited bandwidth also means that Media Fire affords you the ability to upload multiple files at the same time. This is very handy in those times you need to clear a lot of files from your device in order to create space.
4. Easy Sharing
When it comes to filing sharing, Media Fire is probably one of the easiest platforms to use due to its intuitive interface. You can easily share your files by sending a link via any communications channel of your choice and the recipient doesn’t even need to have a Media Fire account.
And if you are sharing sensitive files that you don’t want the recipient to pass on to other people, you can create a one-time link. This means the link only works once – when you are sending it to your recipient. After that, the link is no longer shareable.
With Media Fire, you don’t need to worry about lugging around other storage devices, cables, or any other inconvenience in the name of carrying your data. You can easily save your files and resume whatever you were doing on another device.
Whether it’s your music, video, work documents, or some other project, Media Fire affords you the convenience of carrying it all in your pocket. Not only is this more convenient than external drives, but it is safer as well since it’s harder to lose your mobile device than it is to lose a flash drive.
What about Google Drive’s 15GB?
I’m glad you brought that up. What many don’t realize about the 15GB storage space offered by Google Drive is not at all what it seems. That is because it also includes your Gmail account (which means all emails and attachments are also stored there) and Google photos. That is why, if you use Google Drive, you may find that you reach that 15GB limit faster than you would expect.
All things equal, when it comes to storage capacity, Media Fire has one of the best deals around. And that is why you should strongly consider Media Fire, especially if you create or share a lot of multimedia files.
Media Fire – Taking Care of Your Multimedia and Much More
For those who lie to work on the go, Media Fire definitely is the cloud storage service you should partner with. Not only does it offer unparalleled convenience and ease of use, but it is also very affordable. With paid plans starting at $3.75 with 1TB of storage and many other useful features, it definitely is one of the best deals around.
So go ahead, give Media Fire a try. You’ll definitely fall in love with it. Just like the other 50 million registered users have.
