Review MEGA v2

Brandon Girod
9.0Excellent
Easy access, encrypts your files, features always-on privacy
You can’t upload multiple items simultaneously, randomly logs you out
I’ve been a Dropbox user for about as long as it’s been out, and I haven’t really ever thought about switching for greener pastures. MEGA v2 for Android is a storage app that finally got me thinking about what exactly I’m paying for with Dropbox.
One of the more enticing prospects to this app over others is that they actually start you off with 50 GB of storage space for free. Similar apps will usually give you 10 GB here or maybe 25 there, but 50 is a great number to start out with.
It’s also great because it has auto sync features and you can access these files across platform. Other storage apps do the same thing, but here you can actually see what files are being transferred and at what speed. This is information that I think is critical because there are plenty of times I’ll be sending files to Dropbox only to find that they’re still uploading long after they should be. Seeing upload speed is just convenient.
The biggest features this app has over others are built into the owner’s philosophy: privacy. Every file you share is encrypted, so if it somehow gets into the wrong hands then you know you’ll be protected (up to an extent). These always-on privacy methods are, like the name says, always protecting your content, and you can even set up passwords to prevent people from accessing your files locally.
MEGA v2 is a strong new contender in this space even though they’ve done file hosting before. There are a few drawbacks such as a bug that will periodically log me out of my account and there is currently no way to upload files from various folders at the same time. But the privacy features tacked on top of the current best practices make this a great way to store your data.
