As many already know, it has been Microsoft’s ambition for some time to develop a platform that would support applications designed for any of its platforms. Like this, developers could develop apps for this common platform instead of individual platforms such as Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile or the Xbox One.
While the company has already achieved this goal to some degree, it is still working on fully perfecting the platform. One of the applications already out is the MEGA UWP app, which works not only on Windows 10 but on Windows 10 Mobile as well. Although the app is already available, it’s in its early stages, meaning users will encounter quite a few bugs. If you do decide to try out the app, you’ll also notice that beneath its bugs and instability, there are quite a few features already implemented and ready to go.
It wouldn’t be much of a cloud storage app without actual cloud storage. Cloud Drive displays all the files that have been uploaded to one’s MEGA storage. Here, users can see exactly what they have uploaded and what they have deleted. Deleted files can be restored or permanently erased.
The Transfer Manager section fulfills the role of displaying the various transfers currently occurring between the cloud storage service and the user’s computer. Downloads and uploads are displayed here alongside additional information about each transfer and options like pausing or canceling.
Automatic Photo Upload
MEGA’s app allows photos taken on Windows 10 devices to automatically upload and copy over to the cloud. It’s similar to how other cloud services handle photos, with users freely manage their photo collections with the confidence that everything is backed up on the cloud.
These are just some of the many features that will be coming to the new universal MEGA app. Those interested in checking out its already existing features need to sign up for the app’s beta testing phase.
