Box App Receives Major Update on Android, Brings Box Notes

This morning, the official Box cloud storage application for Android received an update through Google Play, one which brings new features, enhanced functionality, and more.

While there are plenty of new things to talk about, the main highlight of the update is Box Notes. Released for iOS not too long ago, Box Notes allows users to take notes through the web interface of Box or on the app, while also allowing other Box users to collaborate on Notes through whichever platform they are on. Think of it as Google Drive, except with Box, you have access to your files through their platform and can work seamlessly throughout their realm of servers. 

In addition to Box Notes, Box has added in new languages, a Checklist feature (which is included in Box Notes), and Box even claims they have more new features coming soon.

The update should be live on Google Play, but if you don’t see it yet, allow the update to populate Google’s servers.

    When are they going to get automatic uploads for pictures? Everyone else has had that forever. I have 100gb of storage with box. I’d love to have my photos back up there.

    I’m still frustrated that Box can’t create an auto-upload feature for photographs taken with the phone, like Dropbox and Google+ both have. If Box really wants to compete with Dropbox, this is the feature it needs. Even though users keep asking for it, Box ignores the request. Seems like a no-brainer and I can’t imagine why they haven’t integrated this into their app yet. Until they do, I’ll stay a Dropbox user for the time being.
