No more unlimited storage? 2/5
When Box launched, several years ago, they offered Unlimited Lifetime storage to those first clients. I am one of them!
Now it says I only have 50 GB! What happened to my unlimited storage!
Excel previews 4/5
It would be great if the previews of excel graphs were a bit more precise- they don’t show phase lines or labels.
Box, my favorite companion 5/5
By Ali Hekmat
It is a long time I am using Box for my documents. Thanks to Box, it is wonderful.
Yes , truly it is wonderful and friendly but something hurting is that it is not available directly in my country Iran because of sanctions so we have to use it using vpn.
Perfect Storage 5/5

Hey You Don’t Be an Ox! Put a wrapping bow on this digital box. 5/5
By Bryan Morris
Beautiful and applesque 5/5
I have been a long time box user and this app is a huge update to the old one. PDFs look great with the new preview experience and they render in highest fidelity.
It has a new awesome photo viewer which is incredible to use. Love the tiled view and it was pretty fast. I have 30gb of pics on box and now I can really store pics offline as I feel.
Only if I get auto upload of pictures, I will move away from Dropbox.
All the UX improvements make me give it five stars. Now the app is really usable.
Works butter smooth. No crashing. Cross-platform, use it on my iPhone as well as as Box Sync on my laptop and the amazing real time Box Drive on my Windows desktop PC. Really awesome implementation.
I really like this app. Especially for music projects. The only thing that I would change is the ability to sort your files in the order that you want them to go in, and not just by date or alphabetical order.
It does almost everything 4/5
By Marco Polo Mint
Since I decided to consolidate most of my digital life into Box, it means I’m also using it to view word docs, PDFs, and even listen to music. It doesn’t have the finer features of dedicated viewers or players but it does a decent job through previewing the files.
Ideally some form of markup or notation within pdf docs could be saved for collaboration and future reference, that would be a hugely useful addition. But I love having access to my archives of documents, music, photos etc all within the same app.
Great service! 5/5
By Frank Dingaling
Great cloud service! I highly recommend.
Locked out. 1/5
Can't uninstall you application,as it is not on my home page. Don't want it at the present time. Please help me uninstall it.
I love it , works great for 4-H program.
Box’s usefulness 5/5
Crashes when starting 2/5
The app crashes upon starting the app, it can’t seem to handle opening and starting offline sync at the same time.
Fatal Bug: “Not a priority to fix it” 1/5
The app is otherwise great, and would receive a 5 star review if it weren’t for a fatal bug that their support said they were aware of, but they have no plans to repair.
When writing in a box note, the bug causes the cursor to jump away from your present location frequently, rendering the app impossible to use for box notes.
If you use box notes, the app is almost unusable because of this. Our enterprise does, so this is disappointing. We opened a case, and they said they were aware of the bug, but have no plans to fix it. Some bugs aren’t a priority, they said. Reassuring, right?
I have love this app ever since I installed it.
Audio & Video Playback - Reach features upgrade needed. ALL IN CLOUD ACCESS 4/5
Hi Box App Team , ( Feedback)
Audio & Video Playback - Reach features upgrade needed.
1. Play in lock screen
2. Variable speed with swipe gesture.
3. Custom swipe gestures for skip fwd or back.
4. Video pinch zoom , auto subtitles ,
5. Video scrubbing preview ( like in YouTube )
For all computers , enable full cloud access without needing to store files locally but with option for offline access.
Save a tree: go Box! 5/5
This app is fantastic: I have been able to eliminate printing out documents before hearings by loading the documents into the app. Aside from saving trees, I save my shoulders from not having to shlep around a briefcase full of heavy documents. Love it!
Love BOX! 5/5
This is the best storage app! I can save PDFs, pictures, a little bit of everything!
Love the app 4/5
Love everything about the app other than the fact that you can’t save multiple photos to camera roll at once
Bug and support 3/5
Can’t upload more than one file at a time from iOS Pages to Box. You can selects as many as you like but it will only upload one.
Box has terrible tech support.
Fast and Accurate 5/5
I love this application, best of the best. Easy to use, easy to understand.
Easy to manage several construction project plans!
Needs better reliability 3/5
I’ll update this review next month.
It runs the battery real fast if used for to long. So someone told me that and I tried it and it was true. Please explain.
Nothing but ease 5/5
Box cloud account is so easy, it’s like taking candy from a baby 🤣
Forget playlists 3/5
Even after contacting Box two years ago then once more recently, they appear to refuse to allow audio files in a folder to be manually re-positioned for playback per the user’s discretion. BOX OFFERS NO OTHER OPTION BUT BY DATE. Even if you start a new folder and transfer individual files in the order you want them played back, this app STILL ORDERS THEM BY ORIGINAL DATE ONLY. A good app otherwise for general storage, but FORGET CUSTOMIZED AUDIO PLAYBACK LISTS for now. Must be too much like “rocket science” for Box, I guess.
A part of my daily life 5/5
Simple to use across whatever device, secure, and continues to improve. Love recents functionality and comments for collaborating.
By Big spur 11
Love it. Very helpful
Worst file storage service there is 1/5
By Bah bahahaha
Just plain bad. There are so many better options, just avoid these losers.
great app if you use it right 5/5
i use box app along with goodreader. goodreader allows me to do all the fancy stuff and interact with the other apps on my ipad while using box as a depository for my data. box app is great for adding, deleting and backing up files. if you want all the full features of box then use the browser not the app. most of the complaints seem to revolve around trying to get box to do more than intended. as far as battery drain that one user complained about i have no idea what they are talking about since i have never had this problem. box allow user to stay logged in all the time so again not sure what this user is complaining about. i have used dropbox but switched to box as i find it much easier to use. although dropbox does integrate with many more apps. for people using apple products this should not be a big problem since almost all of these apps also integrate with icloud.
This app is many months behind the Box for Android app. It needs to support multiple accounts pronto.
Not backward compatible to ios 9.3 on ipod for MP4
Últimamente tiene problemas 3/5
Llevo años usando la app y es buena pero últimamente cuando subo las fotos me las cambia de fecha y por ende no están en orden. Y aveces se traba. De lo demás muy bien. Espero corrijan eso.
Apple reimagined the iPad. You should reimagine this app. 1/5
After Tuesdays iPad announcement, I’ve been thinking more and more about why I stray towards a laptop instead of my iPad. Apps like Box are exactly why — simple things like I can’t select more than one file at once to AirDrop. When trying to transfer from Mac back into Box on iPad the transfer shows as In Progress but yet after an hour it still sits at 0% completed. Apps are supposed to change the way we work (and at that hopefully for the better, more productive and easier) and yet this app makes me ponder why my company went with Box instead of OneDrive or Dropbox because this is not ready for prime time and its been out for some time, sadly.
By Brian Olson
All sorts of bugs in the Notes editor. Can’t undo, which can lead to data loss and is a terrible experience when multiple people are collaborating. It randomly jumps to different lines when I type with the cursor at the end of a line. The app just feels like it gets in the way more than letting me do work.
iPad files doesn’t work w/ admin password requirement 4/5
Super exciting that box integrates with files on iPad. But as an enterprise user, my admin (rightfully) requires password to access box. This renders files useless. Please fix!
This app needs some significant improvements. From failed uploads to previous errors that refuse to go away, all these make for a very frustrating experience
It asks me to log in every time and now I can’t even log in! It say the administration has blocked it or whatever and nobody knows why it does that. I can do sign up and then it leads me to the log in. So annoying.
Offline viewing??? 3/5
9/14/2018 Any files set to view "offline" are lost after logging out. That is, when logging in later, the "Offline" button does NOT have the list of previous files set for offline viewing. It only shows how-to instruction to set files for offline viewing. Favorites are retained. Please fix.
7/17/2015 I’ve been using Box for several years for archival storage, which was it’s original focus. After updating today, I noticed that many subfolders are now empty! Very disconcerting.
Not good. 1/5
Box has been known to have preview issues and this app is no different. I use box for large video hosting however when attempting to preview videos, they do not stream well if at all. Downloading this app was advised however it’s the same story. I can’t download any of my videos to my device nor can I preview/stream. How do they not have a developer working on this? I sold my Box stock because they’re just not going to be able to compete in this space..
Syncing doesn’t work 1/5
Your syncing feature is terrible. Can’t ever share office docs with coworkers because nothing is ever updated correctly. Why am I not already using google drive?
No internet when there’s clearly internet 1/5
This app has gotten bad with updates. I used to able to use the app, see files & share when using mobile data. Doesn’t do that anymore & is practically useless to me now. 👎
I phone and I pad issue. 3/5
We use this app for our business, and have loved it. Except for the last month or so when we open a file on our phone or iPad only part of the file shows up. This is a major issue for us. Please work out this link very soon
Slow, buggy, junk 1/5
The Box app used to be great. Nice, simple interface that made flipping through files easy. Now it's a mess, with slow, sometimes totally unresponsive controls and a stupid auto hiding toolbar that has exactly zero buttons that I would want there. Why did useless control panel get added instead of actually useful controls based on the filetype? You know, like most modern file managers and almost every other cloud storage app does?
I don't need quick controls for sharing and adding to favorites, I certainly don't want them on a bar at the bottom that looks ridiculous and slows down the app while it tries to decide if it should hide itself or not.
Complete dumpster fire of a UI.
Store your files in Box, but good luck finding them. 1/5
This app makes zero attempt at real search usefulness.
The search filter options are very limited.
If you want to search for a file with a specific extension, you can’t.
If you want to search for a file with a specific alphanumeric string in the file name, you can’t (!?!).
If you want to search for files with modification dates of greater than 1 year ago etc, you can’t.
Most file browsers for cloud services are total garbage, and the Box app is no different.
Useless if you can’t view PDFs 1/5
Not sure what happened, but you can’t view a PDF on the iPhone app anymore. Basically useless for me unless this gets fixed.
Upload errors 4/5
IOS 11. Have recently been having trouble logging on and then getting a lot of upload errors. Have used this app for several years and have not had these issues before.
Horrible login in or reaching folders 1/5
About 75% of the time I try to log in or reach certain folders, it tells me internet appears to be offline. I know my phone is online cause I can reach the internet on every other app. I have uninstall or reinstall and at times that still does not work. It is horrible.
