Only two weeks have passed since Kim Dotcom’s Mega website launched and an Android app is already available for it, allowing users to access the file hosting service via their mobile devices.

But given the aforementioned short time after the MegaUpload’s successor was unveiled, Mega Manager is still only in its alpha release. What it can only do for now is let users sign in and then browse and download files. There is no option to set the location; all downloaded files are placed at /sdcard/MegaManager. Expect problems in performance and stability to occur, although the app author promises features and fixes to come.

On the plus side, multiple files can be downloaded and their folder structure, as organized in the Mega.co.nz website, is kept intact.

If the app’s limitations do not disappoint and you can live with the few existing features, it can be downloaded now from the Google Play Store. It requires mobiles devices running on at least Android 3.0 and a measly free space of 247k. Note that Mega Manager is only a third-party app. To date, there is still no official Android app for the file hosting service, although two more unofficial apps are downloadable at the Google Play Store.
