The Box.net app for iPad and iOS (and online service) – which provides easy access to view, share, and collaborate on files – has had a major update today, to Version 2.4. It looks like Box.net is focusing a lot on the enterprise space, and its service and iOS apps are beefing up their feature set accordingly. The video above is titled ‘The Enterprise Goes Mobile – Box on the iPad’ and it shows off a lot of these features.
Here are some of the notable changes in the 2.4 update:
– Project your documents from your iPad! Using the Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter, render any file you’re viewing on the Box App to a TV, projector or LCD monitor. Extremely useful for offsite meetings, sales pitches and presentations.
Security Lock + Auto-Logout
– Protect your documents from prying eyes. Password protect your Box account on the iPhone or iPad with a four-digit passcode, as well as set the App to automatically logout when you close it completely.
– Wirelessly print to any AirPrint-enabled printer when viewing content on Box, directly from your iPad.
– Box now supports single sign-on for users that access the App through their Google or PingFederate accounts. For businesses, this means more secure, manageable mobile access.
Looks like a very impressive update. I haven’t used Box.net in a while, as I’m more than happy with Dropbox for my file syncing needs. For those who have greater sharing and collaboration needs, and those in corporate environments, Box seems a strong option to consider.
Here’s an App Store link for Box.net – and it’s a free, universal app.
