If you’re looking for a good cloud storage and file sync service that will work well on the iPad, then right about now is a great time to look at Box – as they’re offering 50GB of free space to new users and have just done a major update to Version 3.0 of their iPad and iOS app.
Box has been one of the leaders in the cloud file sync and storage area for many years now, and has had a strong presence on iOS for as long as I can remember. I’ve been using it for years along with Dropbox and Google Drive.
I’ve only had a quick run around the newly updated Box app this morning, but I’d say it looks quite nice and has some cool new features.
I especially like some of the swipe gestures to bring up options for files and folders.
Here are a few of Box’s key features, as per its App Store page:
・High-quality rendering of 100+ file types
・High-fidelity PDF, PowerPoint and Word viewers for reviewing and presenting
・Offline access to files and folders
・Real-time search of files and folders and within documents
・File-level encryption and security controls
・Photo and video import
Here’s an App Store link for Box; it’s a free app and a universal app designed to run on both iPad and iPhone.
