Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon is incredible...a trusted company, so of course we trust their cloud service! It's been such a smooth workflow using their cloud service. We often travel to see clients, and sometimes we may not have the latest version of a presentation because people are rushing and things can get confusing. Now we're never worried because we can always fetch them from the cloud.

MediaFire

Usually MediaFire is quite adequate in all contexts that can be used, because if you want to share a file it is a good idea to be able to do it from there, anyway, if you want to make a backup it is a good idea (due to its speed and ease of use), and even if you want to download something from the web usually MediaFire links work very well even when they are old. Now, if you need it for a more formal use, maybe for companies or serious jobs, its use may not be as adequate because it is not a well known platform and is more related to shared files in forums or web pages.

Pros

  • Amazon Drive Cloud is free and that is positive. It gives us 5GB of storage when we register
  • The application for smartphones is very useful because you can do what you do when you connect from the web browser

  • Fast Uploads. Uploading is quite fast and it doesn't take extremely long.
  • 10GB Overall File Storage Limit. With a Free Account, you can upload up to 10GB of files.
  • Account Never Expires. We let a full year pass where we never logged into Mediafire at one point. And our files were still there!

Cons

  • Amazon Drive gives you 5 GB of storage, which compared to other companies that give you 15GB, is not flashy. I think they should increase the storage capacity to a minimum of 15Gb so they can compete.
  • Amazon Drive Cloud competitors have additional text editing services, spreadsheets, online web presentation editor, among others, and this program only offers you storage. I think they should think of a strategy to become more attractive and beat the competition.

  • No PC client
  • Free space is on the lower end compared to competators
  • Ads on free downloads - becoming less common with competitors

Usability

Based on 1 answer
The system is very easy to use and it's use of apps for almost all devices and hardware makes it even easier to manage and store photos and documents. I highly recommend this as an easy to use solution for novices!

Alternatives Considered

Actually I think both Box and Dropbox are easier to use and have better features for sharing files, especially if you need password security on those files, but Amazon is better for storing tons of data. Box and Dropbox are much more expensive to store a lot of files.

MediaFire is similar to software like Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Mega and ownCloud. All of them share similar features. I particularly like MediaFire's usability because it has a smooth, simple and responsive interface. The pricing by MediaFire is also good and the company frequently offers upgrades with discounts (I got 50% to upgrade to Pro Version)

  • It has allowed me to easily share files with clients and friends
  • No computer client does make things a little slower/more complicated to upload to the cloud
  • Allows me to easily work on a project with someone else and recover a previous file in case of mistakes
