Box may not have the level of popularity that Dropbox has been able to achieve, but they are sure trying to get people’s attention. We know that Box has been offering free 50 GB of storage to owners of select brands, but not all of us have been able to (officially) take advantage of this until today. Box has just updated its Android application, and every user that downloads the app gets 50 GB of free cloud storage! Oh, and some added features and improvements to the app itself.
Enhancements include the ability to view and comment files, invite your friends to collaborate in them, a better uploader, and a cool-looking improved UI complete with Android 4.0 support. I have to say that the UI looks much nicer than the previous version, a much needed update for the cloud storage service.
All users need to do to take advantage of the free 50 GB offer is download the app and sign in; it is that simple. But if you need a bit more of an incentive, they are also raising the upload limit. Users are now allowed to upload files as big as 100 MB.
To make things a bit more interesting, Box is also giving away 20 Samsung Galaxy Tabs with a year of their premium Box Enterprise service. As you may suspect, this is aimed at businesses and business users, and in order to participate, you must tell them how this tablet and service could improve yours. Check out the Box site for more details.
So, if you haven’t yet tried out Box, we say it is about time you get your hands all over it. This offer ends on March 23rd, so make sure to get your free 50 GB before that. Are any of you currently using Box? If not, which cloud storage service do you prefer?
