The popular cloud storage service Mediafire has just updated its official iOS app to version 2.0 with a new "native" interface along with a couple of much-requested features. Since its release on the App Store nearly two years ago, Mediafire for iOS has offered an interface that, while it does a decent job, operates only on what appears to be a mobile webpage wrapping. Well, thanks to its 2.0 update, Mediafire has gone native on iOS, with a new high-resolution interface that feels right at home on Apple's mobile operating system. As for the two highly anticipated features just added to Mediafire for iOS, one is support for automatic camera backup and the other is support for music and video streaming. Now, you can set up Mediafire for iOS to automatically upload and back up all of your photos and videos:
Now iOS users can use MediaFire to access, protect, and share all of their mobile photos, videos, automatically. Files are safely stored in the cloud, and can be automatically synced and accessed on your home computer (via MediaFire Desktop), or the web via MediaFire’s online interface.You can now also use Mediafire for iOS to stream your music and video collection right within the app, with enhanced performance for media streaming including AirPlay support. Mediafire 2.0 also includes the ability to sign up for a new account. Moreover, it offers new sharing options, enabling you to share documents and media directly from the app via email, text, or other iOS apps that support document and media types, including popular chat apps. The release of the new version of the app coincides with the launch of Mediafire's mobile SDK for iOS, which allows developers to integrate Mediafire's cloud storage and syncing capabilities into their apps. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, Mediafire 2.0 is available now on the App Store for free, with free storage starting at 10GB and up to 50GB.
