MediaFire Celebrates the Official Launch of MediaFire Desktop With New Storage Plans; Get 1TB of Cloud Storage for Just $2.50

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

New Native Apps Are On The Way for iPad and Android!

Today, we are excited to  announced the public release of MediaFire Desktop, a free application for OSX and Windows that enables users to instantly share, upload, and store their media in the cloud, directly from their desktop and Mobile Devices.

Since we launched our beta in November, over 2 million MediaFire users have used our desktop app; providing helpful feedback to our team as we have added new features and improved performance. We couldn’t have reached this important milestone without your support! (special thanks goes out to Jared Newman from Time Magazine, who pushed us to go the extra mile!)

To celebrate our official launch, we’ve completely overhauled our consumer cloud storage plans, giving users one terabyte of cloud storage for only five dollars a month. Now users can safely store and share all of their photos, videos, and files in the cloud, without having to worry about file size limits. As an added bonus, for a limited time, MediaFire is offering half off all storage plans, enabling new users to sign up for just two dollars and fifty cents per month!

We’ve also listened to our community, and are announcing several major updates, including:

  • No file-size upload limits: both free and paid users can upload individual files up to 20 gigs in size (When using native 64 bit browsers such as Firefox).
  •  A major update to MediaFire Desktop: Our latest update officially brings MediaFire Desktop out of Beta, squashing bugs and delivering major speed upgrades and stability fixes. To download MediaFire Desktop, visit:
  • Upcoming Native apps for iPad and Android:  These will be available over the next few weeks, and will introduce a host of new features, including automatic photo syncing directly from your Android mobile device. For early press access to our private betas, email
  • A complete overhaul of our API’s and Developer Resource Portal: Our new API’s enable web developers to quickly integrate MediaFire Storage and file sharing directly into their applications. Visit our developer portal here:
  • Native SDK’s will be coming for all major platforms and languages. For more information, or to enroll in our beta development program, email


Over the next few months, we will be launching several new and exciting products, including new and updated applications for iPad and Android (A screenshot of our iPad App can be found above).

Stay Tuned!

How Can MediaFire Afford to Offer Users Such Lucrative Prices?

  • We operate and own all of our own servers and network infrastructure, which allows us to undercut our competitors when it comes to cost. Many of our competitors rely on AWS, which is both cost prohibitive, and introduces potential security and privacy vulnerabilities.

With 30 Million Registered Users, MediaFire Launches Native Music and Video Streaming Support!

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

We are very excited to announce today that MediaFire has reached 30 million registered users!

When we originally launched MediaFire in 2006, we aimed to provide online users with a simple solution for storing and sharing their files online. We envisioned a time where creative people would use the web to easily collaborate and share their content directly with their friends, family, and colleagues around the world.

Seven years later, we have become one of the biggest names in online storage, and we have you to thank for it! We are inspired every day by the powerful success stories of artists, photographers and creative people like you that use MediaFire to share and create amazing digital content.

Today, we are pleased to bring native video and music streaming support to MediaFire, enabling users to play their favorite MediaFire media directly through our Android, iOS, and Web interfaces.

For a limited time, in order to thank our loyal customers, MediaFire is offering fifty-percent discounts on all first-time purchases of our Pro and Business storage plans! Starting at $2.49 per month for 100 gigs of online storage.

To sign up or upgrade your MediaFire account, visit:

In order to showcase our new media streaming support, we have put together a special MediaFire “sampler” featuring music, video, and photo content created and shared by some of our favorite artists, including the M Machine, David Heartbreak, Hrvrd, Menage Quad, and others. New MediaFire users can access this content through the “sample” folder located within their  account.

Existing users can stream and download the summer 2013 sampler by visiting:

Over the past few months, we have have seen incredible user growth, due to the incredible success of our free Android application, and we look forward to launching several new and exciting products and features over the next few weeks.

Stay tuned, and keep creating!

The MediaFire Android App Has Finally Arrived!

Friday, January 18th, 2013

As many of you may already know, on January 16th we officially launched our long-awaited Android App. Almost immediately after publishing our app in Google Play store, we saw lots of warm reviews and great suggestions. We would like to thank you all for the abundant feedback, we appreciate it a lot!

While it makes us happy to know that our users are no longer deprived of MediaFire on their Android devices, the feedback we received also gives us great starting points to focus on improving our apps and adding your most requested features in the near future. As always, feel free to give us more ideas for what you’d like to see in the next version of our iPhone and Android apps in the comments!

Here are some of the great accolades we’re honored to receive from around the web:

“MediaFire is offering 50GB of free cloud storage, so if you’re an avid cloud-sharer, this is an app you don’t want to pass up”.



“No, really: 50 gigabytes”. “MediaFire remains a great option for sharing large files with others, accessing your data across multiple devices, collaborating on documents, and creating backups of non-critical files”.



“…since you have 50GB of free space, you don’t have to make hard decisions of which files you’re uploading to the app for easy access”.




“MediaFire will provide Android users with 50GB of free storage, boasting that users will never have to worry about running out of space”.




“While most other services would only offer that much after a small fee, MediaFire prides itself on leniency, affordability and ease of use, and not having to worry about how many megabytes or gigabytes you have left goes a long way toward a less stressful user experience”.


Again, thanks for all the great feedback! Now that MediaFire for Android has joined our iPhone app and our desktop Express app for Windows, Mac, and Linux, we’re starting to round out our software products and getting ready to take them someplace really exciting.

Stay tuned!
