MediaFire is an app that gives its users access to their MediaFire online storage service. Through the app, users can sign in to their online accounts and make any necessary changes and adjustments straight from their Android phones or tablets.

Once they have registered with MediaFire, users are given 50 GB of free online storage to you as they see fit. All types of files may be stored there, including videos, photos, and music. When they store their files with MediaFire, users do not have to worry about losing their files due to damages or lost devices. The other great benefit of using this app is that it allows users to view the content that is being stored there without having to download it back to their Android devices.

As an added bonus, MediaFire gives users the ability to organize the files they are storing. It is easy to find what you are looking for when you organize files into separate folders based on type, content, or even size. The app also makes it easy for users to share their files via social media or email directly from their online storage accounts.

Pros:

  • Store music, video, and image files online.
  • Easily access files.
  • View and share files without having to download them to your device.

Cons:

  • Files must be downloaded before edits may be completed.
  • There is no progress bar to let user know status of file upload.

This update contains bug-fixes.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • MANAGE_DOCUMENTS: Allows an application to manage access to documents, usually as part of a document picker.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
