    "I’ve been using MediaFire as an alternative to paying for iCloud back up for a a while and it works just as well. MediaFire has the same basic functionalities as iCloud but you save the monthly fee. I have yet to feel like I’m missing out anything and have my files in a safe place that can be conveniently accessed from your phone on the go or computer. "
