Sorry. Last Update Was Enough
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.
Apple reimagined the iPad. You should reimagine this app.
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.
In The past i was very Happy
Now with this new Bold font, i don’t like it at all! I thought it was some kind of error but seems like it’s not. Before you can scroll through your entire library quickly , now you just see some of you files when you open the app and have to search more. Just seemed like it was much quicker to scroll before, with your thumb you can just find stuff quickly like you were reading a e- book . Now it looks clumsy. Not happy with this look at all. Hard to complain when your getting 10 free gigs but i really wish they went back to the original that I had not long ago. I didn’t do any update, so not sure how this happened. Perhaps my phone did an automatic update. I have the iphone x. Not sure if it’s just my version of phone but I doubt it. :(
A step backwards
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.
great app if you use it right
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.
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 received my records timely and all items as promised. So far they’ve been available for me to view anytime I need in this app which I greatly appreciate. I haven’t had time to move them to a thumb drive. I’m not sure how long they’ll be available in the Box app. I couldn’t remember my password when first logging in and the support staff was extremely prompt, professional and helpful when I sent a message asking for help. I recommend this app for this reason and ease of use. 🙂
I’m 63 snd suffer from Upgrade Fatigue. Just when I figure out how my Iphone works, they upgrade everything and I have to start over. So I’m pretty resistant to using new Apps, which usually adds new ways to torture me. I recently received a PowerPoint presentation that required me to download Box, and I love it. Very intuitive and easy to use. With IOS 13, it’s easy to turn a web article into a PDF, and store it in Box. Usually with IOS, I can never find my downloads. So Thank you for this App.
Slow, buggy, junk
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.
Overall genuinely satisfied
free access. Using this you can see your downloaded files lined up with paper touch stylus that gives the feeling of paper when u turn it i.e when from 1 page to another. Logging into ur google or Microsoft account, after u link ur account with box, u can enjoy any documents sent you via email. It makes it super convenient to use it. Worth a try if you are looking to properly manage ur downloaded files (heavy size mainly).
Best Cloud Service
This is clearly the best cloud app of all. I have paid cloud apps with a tb each that don’t work. One Drive stinks. Dropbox is even worse. They have data that I need. Well they are supposed to have my data. Occasionally I see files saved to those appear on the cloud app. Takes weeks at times. The only app I can save files to on my computer and be sure when I look on my iPhone and see them is Box. That is what I need.
It does almost everything
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.
Better Than Dropbox
I used to have Dropbox, and when Dropbox did an update, my password stopped working. I never changed it, and I was not able to get any support from them! I lost a LOT of photos and documents. Box is great for businesses too. Our business provided us with an account, which is where I was able to transfer many files when I moved across the country!
Works great except for storage count
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???
Good app for workflow
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.
