I was pretty envious of my girlfriend for getting free 50 gig of space from Dropbox with her Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for two years until we found out about Mega. It’s like Dropbox but with a new account you already get 50 gig of space FOR FREE. Yes, for free.

In this screenshot she showed me it was indeed real. She’s using it for syncing photos, to have a back up of her files since she knows her free 50 gig at Dropbox won’t last long. The only thing about MEGA is that it’s not yet that known so trusting your files isn’t easy-peasy but for now I believe they are safe so I’m going to try it out myself soon.
