Great App with one issue
This is an awesome app and allows me to make use of the cloud on my iPhone except for one small issue. I am an IT tech and often need to listen to audio recordings of phone calls. These recordings are stored on MEGA and I use to be able to listen to them on the go through my iPhone. However, the iPhone X doesn’t fully support that. If I open an audio file on my iPhone X, it opens the playback window like it usually would, but it gets cut off by the notch at the top of the iPhone X. I can’t scrub through the audio file like you normally would be able to because there is a notch right where you would be able to scrub through. Nor can you press the “Done” button on the top left corner of the screen. To change audio recordings, I have to force close the app, reopen and select the recording I want to listen to. It’s inconvenient to do so, but hopefully this gets worked out in the near future. Otherwise, the app is great and the service from MEGA is outstanding.
It’s Great But Then...
I’ve had this app for a while now and I’ve never truly been one to complain about it. That being said the app functions perfectly and up until this point I’ve never had any problems with it, until maybe last night when I was told I reached my queued data limit and that anything I might try to download will be stopped completely or just be interrupted. To remedy the situation I cleared out every thing, to the point to where it look like I had downloaded the app for the first time, however with the app completely cleared and no percentage of storage used at all, I still had the same issue where I saw using too much space. This is truly a very nice app but with problems like, where you’ve cleared out all storage and have nothing used, it gets a little frustrating because then there’s no point in using it after that.
Wonderful app! But...
As the title says, this app is wonderful! But I have just one, albeit lengthy complaint. The app doesn't play videos on it very well. With shorter than usual videos, like 7 second long ones, I found that the audio gets cut off sooner than intended, nor does the visual part of the video come in. With longer videos, like 20 minute ones, they take ages to load. And relevant to all of them, they're never quite done loading even when the videos play, and take longer to be finished. All of the above mentioned wears down my patience quite a lot and could benefit from some tweaking. That is all I have to say, thank you for reading.
Awesome until latest update
I used this app for my business. Had everything (almost) a click away; Show up to the clients location and pull up all my files right there on their computer or on their phone. I found putting the image, design, art in the customers hands was by far the best way to really put yourself ahead of the competition. Unfortunately, after the latest update a few days ago I’ve been unable to upload anything from a mobile device to my cloud storage through the app. I select which files I want to upload, select upload, the screen closes as if it’s going to upload the images, but nothing does indeed get uploaded. Not only that when you go to the transfers screen the app just completely crashes. I don’t currently have the “latest” iPhone and I’m only assuming that’s my issue. App isn’t optimized for my phone. Loved this app and web based cloud storage. I’ll have to start looking for an alternative.
What's with the some items cannot be shared...
Up until just before 1-2-20, I'd say this was the perfect cloud storage. I can rename files before uploading, create folders and sub folders - especially for saved voicemails, choose to upload my photo library, music files, and it appears that I could, for example, send last years Voicemails to my Mac for external storage- is that right ? Is there in fact a Mac OS version (I use Yosemite and cannot update past that). You get prompted if you use characters that mega doesn't recognize such as /, & etc. but now, no matter whether or what you rename your file, it will NOT UPLOAD. I always get a message, "SOME ITEMS CANNOT BE SHARED WITH MEGA" What's the problem here?? I'm using iPhone 6 and cannot go beyond iOS 10 for now- but that's irrelevant. I'll try downloading the update, but why am I getting that window and unable to upload. I would delete and re-install but I'm afraid of losing the content. Also what is the best way to move folders over to my Mac or external drives in order to archive and save storage? Actually I just updated your app- to no avail!! What happened? And what if I delete the app and reinstall?? Will if remedy the issue, AND WILL I STILL HAVE MY CONTENT? Thank you , Larry Larryfulmer. (At)me (dot) com
It’s the little things...
I’ve been using the mega app for well over a year now and it’s been a great ride, but they are slowly removing features that were small quality of life options. For instance you use to be able to customize the bottom navigation bar for what ever suits your need(I never use the chat system so it’s wasted space), that was removed. I love the new redesign of app itself but looking at photos for work is not as pleasant anymore since the black background fade is gone when you view an image and now my eyes are being blasted by a bright white light when I am in darker areas. Knowing the file name is useful, but I also would like for it to be hidden as it wastes screen real estate. The base functionality and design are all great, but it’s sad to see the little things pile up and slowly push me to alternatives.
This software is completely great. Using an iOS phone, it has been a tremendous load off my back, as most know, you can not update storage on your iPhone with a SIM card, so what a wonderful and encrypted software to have, to keep your most valuable info and photos or videos or share with a family out of state, a entire video file, with no worries of amount of storage, as an Aplus certified CompTia tech, I am slowly incorporating this for personal use, and as of now, have nothing but good words to say about this software. As the days pass, all files and software are becoming larger and larger, this company is aware and is proactive to this , and I tip my hat with a very large Thank you !!!! Kelly Hester
Believe me when I say this app has saved my life multiple times. As recently as two days ago I updated a social media app (not going to say which one because I don’t want to talk-trash it), and it bricked my phone to the point that it went straight to the apple logo-red screen loop and that was it. I don’t own a laptop so you have an idea of the level of distraught I was. After I found someone who would help me with my iPhone, I remembered that the only thing I have backed up on iCloud are my notes/mails and contacts. You have no idea how glad I am that even though my iPhone went rouge, I had the opportunity to recover everything dear to me thanks to MEGA.
Maddening, star added for storage otherwse 2
Love the storage options but it is maddening when it cuts off loading (often), then you have to guess where it quit because it loads hodgepodge, not in order, and if you guess wrong and ask it to upload pictures you already loaded, it will not warn you and it double or triple loads them. Is there a number past which you cannot successfully load photos? 10? 20? 50? 100? Then you need to TELL US so we do nit go thru hell finding this out. Needs an OPTION also to to REMOVE the photos from the source if you WANT, so you do not double load trying to get it to load THE FIRST TIME. But then, it probably would remove them, fail to upload, and then your photo is destroyed. Had higher hopes than what I am seeing.
Rubbish: no privacy & not working
My goal was to share one single video with a friend... Created an account within the app and granted the permission to access photos, and this silly app without asking a thing immediately started to upload all my private photos to it’s cloud!😨 The only way to stop this transfer was to remove the Photos permission in IOS... Then I tried to remove the uploaded photos,- the only thing you can do is to move them to a “rubbish bin”, and still the app shows that the space in your cloud is occupied by them. Ok, let’s try to share a video... Uploaded a video, created a link,- the link just redirects to the MEGA’s main page with their adds and subscription plans (several attempts,- the same result)😒 Have no idea, how is going to pay them for such a service. And finally, you can’t even delete your account.
Surprisingly poor mobile implementation
I signed up for Mega and got the app for the purpose of keeping things I’m working on synced between various computers and my iPad. But that’s not actually what the app does. Unless it’s a photo or video, it won’t keep things synced automatically, instead requiring a manual upload every time. There’s no way to point it to a folder and say “sync this,” unlike on the desktop versions. Instead, you have to run the app, go find the file, and upload it manually. Their website even says as much: note how it says “automatic camera uploads” and “save files locally,” but that’s it. It creates a listing in the folders list to the left in Files, but that doesn’t actually do anything beyond just bringing the app up again. Even simple uploading is far harder than it needs to be. If you just hit “upload” and then “choose,” it then asks for access to your photos and videos. When that’s denied, it says it doesn’t have access and can’t do anything. The actual way is: menu —> upload —> import from... —> browse and then pick the file. That’s 5 actions to accomplish the whole point of the app. It simply makes no sense, and makes basic tasks far harder than they should be.
Amazing - Just One Problem
I love this app and everything about it. There is one little bug that bothers me so much though. Whenever I try to play music through this app in the car through an aux cord, the music randomly pauses. There is no pop up message and no way for me to tell what the problem is. There was only one time that it worked all the way through a song and I played an .m4a file as well as an .mp3 file so I know that the filetype is not the problem. If there could be an update fixing this or at least an explanation as to why it happens I would have zero problems with this app.
The biggest problem I have with this company is the fact that they dive very close to, if not into unethical waters. So they limit the amount of storage or download you can do right, the only way for you to get more is to either buy it, or do a number of things they say will get you a higher limit. The amount you can download restarts every 6 hour, keep that in mind. So when you download their mobile app, or download their computer app it says that it will give you more space. However what it really says in the email they send you in small print at the bottom is that it may take several days for you to get the bonus data. I’m all for company’s making a profit but when you have to do sketchy stuff like this in an effort to make people buy your product, you’re doing something wrong
Screw Dropbox, Privacy is Key
If you’ve ever used Dropbox, this is basically identical to that except fully encrypted. Integrates perfectly with phone, multiple PC’s and tablets. Clean and easy interface, this is privacy protection at its absolute finest. You can share files and folders easily with friends and just as easily keep all your secrets hidden from everyone. Mega does not store your password so there will never be a security breach from their end. Free service is great for casual user, and they have enough paid plans to suite any level of users needs. Highly highly recommend this.
Awesome App but I have questions
I love this App and service so much. A friend referred this to me. However, I have two questions: 1) Will my things going to be deleted days, weeks, or months later after the GB returns to 15? I have 45GB taken right now... will I lose everything ? 2) Will I be able to download all my things, (including the things that takes the extra space), after it returns to 15GB, or I can’t download anything afterwards unless I pay? Also, I’m referring to Free Account, not to any Subscription. I use Mega to revive my best memories and moments in my life, and I’m afraid of loosing them.
