Fireball - The only MediaFire app you'll need on BlackBerry 10

By Bla1ze on 17 Jun 2014 12:42 pm EDT

The amount of apps that allow for addition cloud storage are aplenty on BlackBerry 10. You have MEGA, Dropbox, Box and even OneDrive built in but among those available, MediaFire is missing from the list. MediaFire in case you're not aware, offers you up to 10GB of free cloud storage for all your files so it's a nice spot to upload pictures, music, documents, videos and whatever else you may want.

Fireball is a native app for all BlackBerry 10 devices running 10.2.1 and up that offers up access to MediaFire for uploading all the above in a beautiful UI designed for BlackBerry 10. You simply log into your account and from there you can upload any files you wish, create new folders, share files and more and right now it's on sale for only $.99. Check out the full list of features.

  • Auto Renew Session, session tokens Mediafire API Provides maximum for 10 min.
  • Forgot Password? (in webview for now).
  • Navigation Between folders. Integration with ALL BlackBerry 10 devices.
  • Create new folder.
  • Upload file.
  • Take a picture & upload.
  • Take a video & upload.
  • Download file. (context menu option)
  • Delete file. (context menu option)
  • Delete folder. (context menu option)

Of course, MediaFire does offer a free Android app but if you're not interested in running the Android version then Fireball is the best alternative for BlackBerry 10. On top of it already being a great app, the developer is looking for more ways to improve the app as well and is open to feedback in the CrackBerry Forums. If you purchase it, and can think of ways to improve it, be sure to let him know.

Fireball - The only MediaFire app you'll need on BlackBerry 10


Downloaded. Will be interested in people's experience & opinions with it. Always love to support devs working hard to please us.

Why is the Android App free and the Blackberry version a paid App? Also Surdocs is free for one year and allows up to 100 gigs and cans be used on your computer and mobile device so you have access to everything you have if you're one of those people ( like me) that does not like to leave their laptop on all day just to have access to computer files.

It was build by a separate dev so ofc it will be a paid app. If it came directly from mediafire themselves then it would be a free app

What am I doing wrong? Try to open for first time & wants me to sign in as if I have an existing password? It won't accept my attempts.

Always good to see another native solution. Already had the app for a while, but it is nice to see a write-up about it. Very useful if you are an avid cloud user.


Not sure when and if I wanna jump on the cloud train. Needs a certain level of trust.

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

These apps need to stop being standalone apps, and be plugins to the stock file manager like the Dropbox, Box, and Onedrive plugins. I'm looking at you, MEGA. And now this one.

The File manager plugin system would make your Mediafire app more tightly integrated into the operating system. Other apps could share files to a user's Mediafire account using the BlackBerry 10 "share" infrastructure. You could move files between different cloud storage solutions from inside the file manager. For example. It's just a cleaner, better way to implement cloud storage. BlackBerry went to all the trouble to create the framework, it's a shame not to use it.

Please add System File Manager support & Sharing capability.
That would give Your app adventage over MEGA (apart of theat being native)and make me buying Fireball for sure.
Thanx for Your app.


Im not sure, but I think that this is not possible for external developers, integration with Native File Manager is only posible for apps develop directly for blackberry and another VIP developers (Facebook, twitter, etc). I going to investigate this.

Is not bad! But if u desire share files u can use Mediafire or another cloud storage service, too if you micro sd crash, cloud storage is your salvation! :)

Each who select the option that you like, do not see the point to discuss this topic here! I love, because i develop this app, u love another cloud storage? Nice, is your opinion. :)

Is anyone else having problems with Box, Dropbox, and or Skydrive taking up all your storage space?

I am down to almost nothing now and can't figure out how to get them moved to the SD card.

My battery has been draining really fast lately on a z30. I wonder if that is related?
