    ATTN: Stop hosting files on mediafire and rapidshare - details inside

    I am sick of people using these stupid services that charge for premium downloads and make you wait for x amount of seconds before allowing download. I have created a file hosting site specifically for android projects and you can link directly to the file. All you have to do to upload is register and you can even pull files from other servers.

    Android Philes

    Here is an example link

    com.adobe.flashplayer-1.apk

    Not meant to start anything... but how can you say you're sick of the sites that make you wait for x amount of seconds before allowing download, then when I click your sample link it says "Please Wait 5 more second(s) to download." then even makes you type in a captcha.

    It's great that you're doing this, but your advertisement is slightly contradicting.

    Try it again... I didn't realize it was doing that until I tried to download from my phone... it must set a cookie or something... it should be fixed now. It was still better than 45 seconds or whatever

    I just tried it from 2 different browsers and my phone and it doesn't redirect to my site or require a wait time... it just downloads the file.

    Sometimes that's the price you pay for free hosting. It's annoying, but considering the alternatives, I'll deal with it.

    There are always ways of getting around the download wait time.

    I agree with you about rapidshare since it's slow and sucks but mediafire doesn't have any wait times and the download is extremely fast so I don't see why there is a problem with it.

    I host files on rapidshare and I see your point, but I have a rapidshare account so that's why I use it. That being said, I haven't stumbled onto any links on this forum for roms and such that are on rapidshare. Most just download directly so I don't think it's a big enough deal to get all worked up about.

    There are links to applications hosted on multiple sites like megaupload, etc. I would rather see direct links... so that is why I created this site...

    The good thing about using something like rapidshare is that you know it's going to be there and the website wont just disappear one day. The wait time isn't bad at all, they do it for advertising reasons (to show their ads and for incentive to buy a premium account), bandwidth isn't free.

    I was gonna say the same thing about mediafire. There is no wait time, and the downloads are fast. No captcha either. Its one of the easiest ones to use. Its not as fast at what you're doing tho stonedoubt....lol Direct link.....I like it.

    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
