Mega for Music

My adventure through the cloud storage services continues.
send audio online
I’ve been playing with Mega all week now and at times I feel there is something wrong with it, and sometimes the wrong thing is with me.
The web access to Mega is easy to use, you get whole 50GB for free and the uploading is easy as drag and drop. You can organize your files in folders.
The coolest thing about Mega is that when you upload a file, in my case audio, it is stored on the Mega servers only in encrypted state. That means that only you and no one but you has access to the full files.
So Mega is actually the best secure cloud storage. The cons here is that the cryptography makes the service slow and does’t have desktop app to help you with the file-moving.
As for the mobile apps – I’ve tried both iOS and Android. If I have to be honest the Android app is a complete mess. On iPhone things are a little bit better and they even have a light audio player.
You can make your audio files available for offline and actually listen to them, which is great.
I have a few notes on the photo sync in both the apps, but since I don’t care at all about photos i will keep them to my self. Just note that they have a lot of work.
So, Mega is a secure cloud storage, gives you a lot of space and you can use it if you have sudden craving to hear a particular song. We are one step closer to the best cloud storage for audio.
This week I’m going to use MediaFire, so stay tuned!
