Mega for Windows Phone goes public with version 2.0 [Update: now live!]

Following an initial private beta period, Mega, the cloud storage app for Windows Phone, has been bumped to version 2.0 and becomes public with it. Or that's apparently the plan, anyway. While the app has been updated with the store listing reflecting the new public status, that isn't currently how it is in practice.

When trying to download right now it's likely you'll be met with a message telling you that you don't have the necessary permissions. So something, somewhere, didn't get updated properly. In any case, it looks like those of us not involved in the private trials will soon be able to get our upload on. Grab it (eventually) from the Windows Phone Store at the link below.

Update: Following on from a tweet published by the official MEGA account, we've finally been able to download and install the app on our Windows Phones, so be sure to give the store another check. Note that the app could still be passing through Microsoft's services.
