Earlier this year, Kim Dotcom launched MEGA into beta as the file-hosting service offers some nice perks such as giving users 50GB of storage for free among other things. It’s been ten months since the debut of MEGA, and today, the service has been taken out of beta. With its exit from beta, MEGA is rolling out a number of tweaks and improvements over the previously beta version of the website.
One of the first things MEGA improved was its web UI, which looks to offer a more streamlined look and feel over the previous version of the UI. Some tweaks have also been made that focus on making the MEGA experience faster and more efficient, one of which includes local caching which only syncs changes from the last time you connected to the website. Sharing content with friends is also an easier experience as you’ll be able to upload profile avatars to help distinguish yourself on the service as well as the ability to see how many files a person is sharing with you and when they last updated their files.
Now that MEGA is out of beta, the service is looking towards mobile as an Android app is currently available, while an iOS app has been submitted for review. Windows, OS X and Linux apps are also expected to be relesaed in the next month.
