  • Wish box was google drive Mar 4, 2019

    By Chalapathi
    I really wish box app and service was at least 10% of what google drive offers. The app for iPhone is very user unfriendly and the app on Mac is useless. As an example, when I am syncing files in Mac with box, there’s no status indicator nor a way to pause sync - amazing how google supports such features. Moreover, there’s no way to pick and chose what folders I want synced on my Mac - I have 3 Mac that use from time to time and each for different purpose. Box just dumps al folders to every Mac - google drive handles this feature amazingly well. Useless for me so far

    You've successfully crafted a tool for those serious about facilitating a company, those looking to simply learn from the pros (BOX Training) and those just needing to store some stuff! Thanks & great work! July 7th, 2020//UPDATE: Still working pretty seamlessly. I'm still holding out hope my collaborators will paper/rock/scissors...on who loses gets to do my work that week. I'll order pizza. BOX is taking over in the CLOUD world like a boss. I truly mean that. It is through my lens, anyways.

  • great app if you use it right Dec 23, 2018

    By ypolak
    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.

    We’ve used Box for years now. But I’ve noticed its not keeping up with tech changes other cloud drives are. Can’t play videos even after updating the app. It just says “preview image unavailable.” When I play songs or audiobooks, it doesn’t remember where you left off, in the event you need to switch apps temporarily. There are no playlist options I can use to add files to, to play them once the current file is done and automatically start the next one in a different Box folder. Also, when listening to an audio file, Box has the slider but doesn’t have the rewind or fast forward 10, 15, or 30 seconds buttons. Instead we need to manually slide back in case we need to listen to something again real quick. Well, what about if you’re in the car? It’s a pain. And worse yet, the app is always either crashing or taking too long to load the next file. Sorry Box but we need to part ways. I’ve found better now.

    Could not log into University account (using SSO). After inspecting crash reports it turned out that the app tried to launch Chrome for SSO login (which was not installed) instead of using the default browser. After reactivating Chrome, all works fine. Please fix this and make it use the default browser. Or at least complain about Chrome not being available.

  • Apple reimagined the iPad. You should reimagine this app. Dec 15, 2019

    By mytw0b1ts
    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. More recently trying to mark items as favorites I’ll be in the folder and it produces an error that the item no longer exists - the item that’s in the folder that I’m currently in and trying to make as a favorite?! Force closing, logging out logging in etc doesn’t fix it.

  • A step backwards Dec 4, 2019

    By fWol
    Recently, Box added a feature that allowed you to open a Box Word document in Word so you could edit the document in addition to viewing it. Before that change, you had to go to Word and go through a process of adding Box access to Word, and then, within the Word application open up a Box file. Very unsatisfying and it was greatly helpful when Box added the feature that allows you to open and edit a Word document while in Box. Regrettably, this feature has mysteriously disappeared from the IOS iPad application. The removal of this feature, coupled with the still horribly slow (after all these years of hoping they would improve the performance) speed of the Box synchronization on the Windows PC, have permanently soured me on Box. All hype and vastly inferior to One Drive, Dropbox and Google Drive.

    I tried uploading 400 images twice and it only managed to upload 70 images and then just stopped. I'm giving a one star review because the app is unusable. Also, it would be nice if there was a sync feature so that you didn't need to upload files continuously.

  • It does almost everything Jan 13, 2019

    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.

  • A few problems, almost perfect Dec 5, 2017

    By I R Tobi
    Problems that are still here and aren't making this 5/5 -Zooming is still a little wonky (occasionally doesn't zoom in by doubletap) and you might need to troubleshoot by exiting image preview and reentering it. -Landscape swiping is still difficult and requires you to swipe halfway across the screen when it should be a small flick to view the next file.

  • Box app is great; Box Notes not so much Feb 9, 2019

    By vampduck
    The Box Notes content isn’t searchable via the app, website or local file system. If you’re planning to switch from Box, all your content is locked into a proprietary format with no way to export. I’m currently copying and pasting content for dozens of notes into Word docs.

  • Battery Hog Jan 14, 2018

    By Debford1
    When I first downloaded box I loved it. Then all the sudden it was making me have to sign in every time with the keypad I had it set for my fingerprint sign it. Then all the sudden I started noticing my phone‘s battery was being drained drastically. Thought maybe it was another program I had installed so I uninstalled the other program, and no the battery still kept draining. My husband had installed box on his iPad Pro and on his phone also and he noticed his battery going down fast. Unfortunately we had to uninstall box from our tablets and phones I really like the concept of the app and I hope that you can get this fixed it is a great app and would love to use it.

    I had about 500 ebooks to download hosted on your box drive, so I thought creating a box account to save them there, instead of downloading to my device and Subsequent upload to my Google drive would be better. After installing and activating your app, i realised the only option was to download the 📂 containing all 500 books to my device. Before i could upload them to your drive/app. This is very poor!

  • Good app for workflow May 22, 2019

    By piranhadig
    Great app for initiating workflow but cuts short for us in the music world. In short, DISCO picks up where you guys leave off. Neither do what I need so I have to spend twice the money in both subscriptions to get results. Would be nice to have everything in one app. Easy access to metadata and a better format for inputting that into songs. (metadata inputting, aiff to mp3 conversion, additional data input without losing original download link, applying a graphic - I.e. jpg - to the metadata). Your dt application is fantastic and love the cloud sync so I’m current on all 3 of my computers in various locations.

  • Forget playlists Dec 31, 2018

    By Googoyle
    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.

  • Pretty good on iPad. Wish files would appear alphabetized. Oct 17, 2019

    By frustrated subscriber number 2
    This app works pretty well on my iPad. I wish that files in folders would appear in alphabetical order. I have been using Box a lot over the past 5-6 years, but I will probably will stop using it so much because of changes that they recently made to the laptop app. It has become really inconvenient to use since those recent changes.

  • Aggravating Aug 8, 2020

    By Rimshak
    Half the time scrolling through pictures it will bug out. You can pinch to zoom a photo then slide over a couple and it acts like it’s bugged out and won’t zoom on anything. Also, uploading or downloading is one of the most annoying things ever. The task will just sit there... Say I told it to make something available offline. It’ll pop up a window saying it’s making it available. You tap for details and the file size is just sitting there with 0%. It’ll set there for 5-10 minutes before it even takes off. If it even does. Sometimes I just force close the app and reopen to get the download started. It’s very inconsistent.

  • Works great except for storage count Oct 4, 2019

    By Yodle_odler
    I’ve been using the app and service for over five years. The service is great except for one huge flaw. I have to submit Help tickets about 3-4 times per week so the box team can run a script to display accurate storage counts. Otherwise I’m locked out of any further uploads. Even if I delete files the total storage number does not change. This seems like such a core function for a file storage company and it should work. The box teams automated response hasn’t changed in five years. “This is a long term goal for our engineering team.” How much longer should I wait???

    Don't waste your time using this trash. Unable to log in. Constant loading loop, then a message appears saying that I am not connected to the internet, even though I clearly am. Has been like this for months. Uninstalling this trash app. It's broken, they can't be bothered to fix it, and I can't be bothered to use it when there are way better apps out there, starting with Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.

    I've been paying you for a decade. One of the things I expect in return is a mobile access that accepts login. This is a reasonable expectation. I have opened a support ticket and received no response. Judging by feedback on your app, I'm not alone in this situation. What nonsense is happening that you are unable to fulfill this basic expectation.
