For now though, there aren't even any app clients

Dotcom has made plenty of promises about Mega before the site launched and quite a few after it launched as well. One of them, that he's reiterating now, is that Mega will be platform, in fact more than a platform, a network.

Apart from an API to enable third-party apps and services to build on top of Mega, something that's a given for any internet service these days, Dotcom also envisions a future where Mega technology will be used by a number of companies and organizations to offer their own services.

There are plans to expand Mega and offer white-label services based on the technology. Dotcom says he plans to offer the technology to universities for free.

There's a long way to go until Mega is ready for that though. And, despite Dotcom's claims of Mega being a Mecca of privacy and freedom, it is a business first and foremost, it exists to make money.

A company can make money and respect its customers obviously, it remains to be seen whether Mega is that type company.
