MediaFire is definitely one of the more popular cloud-based file sharing services out there, and until now, there wasn't exactly a clean way to access it via Android. Today MediaFire put an end to that problem, and released its official Android app for all of your gee-bee-devouring needs.

The app is fairly simple (and not exactly pretty), but works just like you'd expect - you can browse your MediaFire files in the cloud, upload new ones, and view docs, spreadsheets, presentations, video, and listen to audio. The app supports direct photo uploading from the camera and sharing via any number of methods. Hit up the Play Store to get it now.

    Gingerbread menu and buttons in this day and age?

    /facepalm.

      At least it's better than an iOS clone.

        Actually, the iOS version looks fairly good: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mediafire/id555646196?mt=8

        If they cloned those screen shots but changed the navigation buttons, it would be pretty damn good...seriously. With minor adjustments it would even match the Android Design Guidelines very closely; however, the holo-only crowd would still complain.

        Instead, none of the buttons have been styled, they are just generic fat Gingerbread buttons. There's no excuse for using the Gingerbread menus anymore, especially on a brand new app (backwards compatibility is very easy now with various libraries). They don't even color the header consistently across different screens or dialogs. This really looks very unprofessional...

          I hate people who are part of the HOLO only crowd. Douchbags

            HoloUX is beautiful and I generally prefer it over everything else. A good app is a good app no matter what it looks like and a HoloUX turd is still a turd albeit neon blue and futuristic.

      It's better than Box's 25 MB file limit.

    No way to upload other files and sync? Useless.

    Finally, they have released it! Seriously, we didn't had any appropriate way to access Mediafire services on Android.

    MediaFire is the last place you want to be storing your stuff. Also, they delete your stuff if you don't use them in a long time because they think you are file storing instead of file sharing. Pretty messed up.
