File Sharing with MediaFire
You can share any folder or file from your account with anyone. Recipients don't even need a MediaFire account to view and download your files—they are taken right to the download link.
One-time download links can be created and you can also specify for how many days the link is valid before expiring.
This free cloud storage service also lets you share multiple files without having to place them in their own folder, which can come in handy at times.
Free iOS and Android apps are available that let you share the public download link for your data and well as upload images and videos from your device.
You can also just use the MediaFire website to upload files and folders directly to your account.
Thoughts on MediaFire
Our first impression of MediaFire is positive, and not only because of its free 50 GB. We appreciate how easy it is to upload files—it's just a folder you can drag and drop data to. The same folder can be used to see all your files in your account.
We especially like the FileDrop feature that's available for folders. We can see a use for this if others need to send you files that are too large to deliver over email. You can get email alerts and even subscribe to folder changes via RSS.
We've used MediaFire for a long time, but just to download files from others. Only recently have we started using it as online storage, and we're not surprised at how simple and intuitive the web app is.
