It's no big secret that mobile devices have their storage limitations, and that's where an app like MEGA for Android helps out users by allowing them to upload some of their files directly to Internet storage without having to fool with memory sticks and other add-ons.

A Detailed Look at the MEGA App for Android

Purchasing a mobile device with extended storage costs a whole lot more money, and even then you don't really have enough storage to keep your favorite movies, songs, shows, apps, and other odds and ends. Even the most expensive mobile devices don't offer anywhere near the storage of your basic PC, and that's why apps like MEGA have done so well in recent memory. This particular Android app is a free, small-sized application that allows users to upload their files directly to the Internet for storage. You don't have to wait around for sign-ups, log-ins, different passwords and codes, etc. This app takes you directly to Internet storage, and you can be sure that it's not like those cloud servers that are susceptible to hacking.

Perhaps the coolest feature of this app is its ability to sync up with any Android mobile device you're using so that you can automatically use it to upload your files into storage. Best of all, the storage is easily accessible and you won't have to go downloading every file you want to view again. You can simply access it from storage. As an added bonus, users can operate this app like a basic web browser, maintaining access to the Internet while using it.
