The popular cloud storage option for Android Box.net has just been updated in the Android Market. Along with tons of awesome features, improvements and bug fixes they also have something else very exciting — free storage! I’ve been a long time user of apps like Box or Dropbox but most don’t offer this much storage. Box.net is now giving all new users 50 GB of storage completely free.
This isn’t extremely new and Box has been giving select smartphone users like those with an Xperia device 50 GB for free, but now they are giving this to everyone on Android that signs up before March 23rd. I don’t know about you but that 5 GB free from Dropbox seems pretty weak compared to this, they might need to change up their game.
Along with the awesome news of free storage they’ve also added tons of new features to the app. You can see the “what’s new” area has many improvements and changes. We now have the option to comment on files, manage and share with other Box users with a collaboration folder, improved UI, better and batch uploads right from the SD card or internal storage and many many more.
Only downside of Box is I think they only allow 100MB files to be uploaded so large videos might need to be split up. For those looking for 50GB of free storage feel free to try it out today with the market link below. I might have to sign up twice because 100 GB sounds awesome.
