Mega launches official Android app, 50GB free storage

Mega launches official Android app, 50GB free storageFile sharers (of the entirely legal variety, of course) might recall a little something called Megaupload, a service that was ultimately shut down by the United States Department of Justice. America… fug yeah!

Chubby-faced founder Kim Dotcom is currently operating under the simplified/shortened Mega moniker, and the official Android Mega app is now go.

Mega makes the announcement over on its blog, though it keeps things fairly brief for the most part.

Indeed, we’re pretty much looking at a list of basic Mega features, including fast up- and downloads, image thumbnails, the option to automatically sync photos and videos, and the ability to create, delete, rename and/or move files and folders.

The Android Mega app isn’t entirely new; Kim & Co simply acquired an existing third-party app and redesigned it.

The Mega app is of course free to download from Google Play, with the headline feature seemingly being 50GB of free secure storage.

There’s no iOS or Windows Phone version of the Mega app just yet, but The Verge says they’re in the “final stages of development” - to quote Dotcom.

And that’s Mega for Android. Go forth and share!
