This app has become indispensable. Enough said.
No Longer Useful
by Skierbarry on 2020/01/30 02:06
I used to be a big fan of this app and used it like my C: drive saving everything on it. But overtime useful features have been removed or now have to be part d for such as auto backup for photos. The app is extremely unstable, crashing within 60 seconds despite all of the claims that bugs have been repaired to improve stability. I can’t even share items or save data from other apps to it for when I do I get error messages. I more or less stopped using it. A shame.
Box is the best!!
by Neilbond on 2020/01/28 11:42
Using box for a very long time. One of the best app. Easy to use, sync and share.
One item for the wishlist
by -Vickster- on 2020/01/27 21:47
I like that I can play my MP3 files with the internal player but I sure do wish the internal player could also play OGG files! The android version of Box has that ability, so maybe you guys can think about adding it to the IOS version? Thanks for any assistance.
Box can’t upload photos
by Krishn3 on 2020/01/26 16:27
The recent version of Box can’t upload photos from iPhone photos. When uploading photos it gives message work completed but no photos are uploaded in the Box folder. The issue started happening after recent update to Box. Also choice of uploading photos to Box no longer appears in the iPhone Photos app. Something broke functionality of uploading photos to Box. Please fix it.
Love it

by j!!!!!!!! on 2020/01/23 21:16
Ever since I updated the app on my phone this happens frequently and is making it very hard for me to continue using Box. It is no longer dependable for me and my work. Box team, please offer a way we can revert back to the older versions... I used an older version for years everyday and absolutely loved it. Now I’m left scrambling to put all my files on alternate platforms, just because of this cursed update. Thanks for listening to my cautionary tale.

New update makes it useless
by MusicFan312 on 2020/01/15 23:11
I’m a musician. I send new mixes to band members all the time using box because it has been an amazing thing. The last iOS update and box update does this: I get logged out ever 3.5 mins and have to re-enter email & password and if I’m playing new mixes via Bluetooth it stops playing because I got logged out. Can’t even finish a song via Bluetooth. Frustrating for sure, been happening for a few days and I’m trying to work on the final mixes for a new album due for release in feb 2020 and can’t use box. Going elsewhere for now, probably be back if this gets worked out.
Won’t stay logged in
by revp on 2020/01/12 13:15
Box is my favorite cloud service and one of my favorite apps but this last update messed up a basic feature in the iPhone version. Even with “keep me logged in” selected, the app wants me to login every time I open it and it won’t allow me login with keychain passwords. Still have to type it in. The worse is that I have to re-save GBs of offline material each time I re-login. I usually give you guys a 5-star review for multiple reasons but this login issue is killing my workflow.
Finally a passcode or Face ID lock!

Simply doesn’t work
by KoowanPStark on 2020/01/08 22:23
Locks into an endless loop when trying to access the stored password so it’s impossible to sign in. TouchID doesn’t work and forces you to use your passcode, but that just loops back to the login screen. Password recovery doesn’t work either. Email never arrives. Who designed this horrible app?
Wish I could get it! Frustrating!
by Mafa1 on 2020/01/07 22:59
I downloaded the app, attempted to sign up. It said check email for confirmation...never have gotten the email. Checked junk mail, still nothing. Tried to resend several times. Nothing. After many attempts to reset password, etc... This is too much trouble.

I no longer recommend Box anymore. Instead of improving every time they update the app it seems like they add bugs and glitches. This latest update got very annoying. Every single time I open the app it asks for login credentials. This is a hassle because I use the app very frequently. Please fix it!

by Poisnebgisknsbbs on 2019/12/21 13:46
I found an MP3 file that I wanted to listen to. It was supposed to download in box. I tried installing the app. It wouldn’t open with my password. I asked twice for it to send me another password. Never got an email with the new password. Haven’t been able to use it yet.

Bug: Unable to sync box

When I save files into box using other apps like scannable those files where not able to sync with box.
Apple reimagined the iPad. You should reimagine this app.
by mytw0b1ts on 2019/12/15 21:19
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
by fWol on 2019/12/04 05:11
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.

In The past i was very Happy
by Josh bx on 2019/12/02 16:27
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. :(
Missing files
by today's frusterated user on 2019/12/01 20:21

Slow, unintuitive and buggy
by cimcopad on 2019/11/22 12:23
Great idea but this product needs a lot of improvement. It seems the mental model it was built with did not take into account the average user needs. Slow file opening, and strange and unintuitive language makes the application really hard to use. Spend some time with your users to see how frustrating it is to get things done with it!

With the new iOS software, Box.com no longer finds apps on my ipad to send files to (from box). If I revert back to the last update, it works fine. Specifically, it no longer sees the app “courseware”. When I make the file available offline, I go into the file, then press the arrow on the bottom and it shows apps but courseware is not there.

Would be helpful but...
by bam_bam__ on 2019/11/11 20:37
The concept of the app is nice and simple but there is one very painful quirk that hasn’t gone away. I’m not certain that it is the app and not the iPhone implementation of it but regardless it’s obnoxious and takes extra time to work around. I use Box mostly for building prints and anytime I try to scroll through a document I am exited out of said document. It makes the app nearly unusable. Maybe I’m being hyperbolic but if this didn’t happen, it wouldn’t get a bad review.

Lots to like about Box but every time I use it on my iPad, I have trouble a) opening files on box from within word and b) saving a file to box if I started in another app - either Box is not designed to play well with other Apps on an iPad or they’re not designed to work with Box.

Best Cloud Service
by Excellent714 on 2019/10/24 01:53
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.

by frustrated subscriber number 2 on 2019/10/17 02:14
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.

Better than google
by TFDrifterJJRX on 2019/10/15 02:16
I prefer a regular Apple programs over a monopolistic google app. This allows me to download books, and such that I receive from Kickstarter. 14 October 2019: My last review was short because I was both trying to do too much at the time and still enamored with finding a non google app that worked far better (IMO) than google. Aw, heck, this app still leaves google in the dust! It s • was easy to use • can handle everything that I ve asked it to handle • and best of all ~ No google ads!

Wish box was google drive
by Chalapathi on 2019/03/04 03:53
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
Sorry. Last Update Was Enough
by cjb3270 on 2019/01/19 01:55
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.

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
by fWol on 2019/12/04 05:11
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
by ypolak on 2018/12/23 16:03
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.
Battery Hog
by Debford1 on 2018/01/14 17:14
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.
Reliable
by luvdetroit on 2019/10/06 17:16
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. 🙂
Works great
by Ron750 on 2019/10/05 08:06
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.
Overall genuinely satisfied
by rsherpa55 on 2019/07/12 16:32
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
by Excellent714 on 2019/10/24 01:53
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
by Marco Polo Mint on 2019/01/13 19:58
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
by ChelaGlez on 2019/08/14 16:54
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
by Yodle_odler on 2019/10/04 03:23
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
by piranhadig on 2019/05/22 15:18
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.
iOS 11 Files app used to work, not this release
by CIO-SB on 2017/09/24 17:53
The previous release of the Box app worked as expected with the iOS 11 Files app, add Box in locations, authenticate and see your Box files in the Files app. Updated Box app today (9/24) and Files now says you must authenticate in Box app. From this point forward you can’t access Box files inside Files, you’re redirected to the Box app.
Something happened
by Ram99205 on 2017/10/10 02:18
Something happened, and a five star app went to a two or three star app. Thankfully, it appears that I don’t have to login each time I open the document. However, many of my pictures will not show now. Something is wrong with this new iteration. This has been a stellar app, and no doubt will continue to be, but somethings wrong with this version.
Fatal Bug: “Not a priority to fix it”
by AlbuquerqueFan on 2019/01/09 20:49
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?
Musicians look no further!
by Jasonhemphill2nd on 2019/05/22 16:59
Box is bar none my favorite way to transfer sessions, takes, and mixed down finals to clients. I use it nearly everyday. Do yourself a favor, pick it up. They are constantly updating the app to make it easier and easier to use and I am very happy with the changes even after 4+ years with the service. Box, You guys are awesome. Keep up all the good work!
Will not refund money
by mikecarpenterxray on 2019/02/28 18:26
Ordered by mistake, spent one hour the same day trying to find email or someway to contact them, they lead you to a website that you have to register your name and so on!!! Please don’t purchase!!! Today I finally had opportunity to request refund and immediately had response that I do not meet requirements for a refund!! BAD EXPERIENCE!! No customer service at all!!!!
Please add dark mode!
by LIBeaches2011 on 2019/09/24 21:42
As someone who relies upon technology and stares at white screens all day, the shift within iOS and MacOS to support more dark mode enabled apps is highly welcomed. Please add dark mode to the Box mobile and desktop apps for this light sensitive individual. OneDrive had this at iOS 13 release, why can’t you? It also needs native support for engineering files within the previewer in the mobile app.
Thanks for the update but....
by Scruffy guy in La on 2017/12/05 00:03
I like box very much however, there are still sync issues between all devices. Excel for example is a huge issue - repeated messages that say cannot sync. Frustrating. If I’m at a meeting and want to open a file - message states generating preview but says cannot. Repeatedly same error message. I’m looking for another program
Newly unusable
by mi.mo on 2017/09/26 12:25
I’ve been using box on my iPad, iPhone and computers for years. As of a couple of days ago, the app on iOS is asking me to sign in a new every single time. Because I have two step verification turned on, this is a serious hassle. Is there some weird security issue going on with Box? Are you all trying to earn more money from those of us who have been with you for a long time asking us to subscribe or something? (schmucky if so) Or is this just some terrible bug? In any case I do not, emphasize not,recommend starting out with this app it it is new to you until the Box folks repair it.
New update makes it useless
by MusicFan312 on 2020/01/15 23:11
I’m a musician. I send new mixes to band members all the time using box because it has been an amazing thing. The last iOS update and box update does this: I get logged out ever 3.5 mins and have to re-enter email & password and if I’m playing new mixes via Bluetooth it stops playing because I got logged out. Can’t even finish a song via Bluetooth. Frustrating for sure, been happening for a few days and I’m trying to work on the final mixes for a new album due for release in feb 2020 and can’t use box. Going elsewhere for now, probably be back if this gets worked out.
This app needs an upgrade
by Tupac's Cousin on 2019/08/02 03:10
This app would be great, IF it actually worked. Unfortunately, majority of the time, it doesn’t. Or if it does, it’s AWFULLY SLOW. Good luck uploading large files or a lot of small files it once.. What should normally take maybe a few minutes to upload will take FOREVER with box.. I’m talking an hour or more. Also, it often won’t load pictures/videos AT ALL. It will literally show a blank screen instead of loading the picture, no matter how long you wait. Bad functionality all around.
Forget playlists
by Googoyle on 2018/12/31 13:57
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.
Needs Drag and Drop Support
by Saving reset on 2018/04/19 20:01
The Box app for iPad is largely fine. I like the ability to quickly open a file in Microsoft Word and then be directed back to the app when closing. I would request however Drag and Drop support as it would make file management, especially when downloading files from email, more seamless and simpler to use.
Continuing ideas
by GarickMendez on 2019/11/10 11:28
I have it in my iphone, ipad and many MS Surfaces. I can work in any of those devices in any moment. Very successful approach. And better than dropbox because with box I don’t have limit number of devices (dropbox just 3). In box is Very easy to share my files with other apps. A five star definitely.
A few problems, almost perfect
by I R Tobi on 2017/12/05 17:53
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.
Won’t stay logged in
by revp on 2020/01/12 13:15
Box is my favorite cloud service and one of my favorite apps but this last update messed up a basic feature in the iPhone version. Even with “keep me logged in” selected, the app wants me to login every time I open it and it won’t allow me login with keychain passwords. Still have to type it in. The worse is that I have to re-save GBs of offline material each time I re-login. I usually give you guys a 5-star review for multiple reasons but this login issue is killing my workflow.
Would be helpful but...
by bam_bam__ on 2019/11/11 20:37
The concept of the app is nice and simple but there is one very painful quirk that hasn’t gone away. I’m not certain that it is the app and not the iPhone implementation of it but regardless it’s obnoxious and takes extra time to work around. I use Box mostly for building prints and anytime I try to scroll through a document I am exited out of said document. It makes the app nearly unusable. Maybe I’m being hyperbolic but if this didn’t happen, it wouldn’t get a bad review.
Pretty good on iPad. Wish files would appear alphabetized.
by frustrated subscriber number 2 on 2019/10/17 02:14
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.
functions broken
by pest5551212 on 2017/10/28 14:57
First, App Support link in iOS App Store leads to Safari error about too many redirects. Wanted to report app issue but can't, of course. Second, app persistently presents New Notifications Available message when opening app notifications settings. Message instructs to update app in order to see New options. However, app is as up to date as iOS App Store allows. App and Box drive are OK. Have to use because of employer.
Independent contractor
by bigohead on 2019/04/17 14:18
For someone who takes many pictures a day at different sites, it would be helpful if Box could sort pictures from my phone by location and/or date like my iPhone does. Taking pictures in Box is too slow
VoiceOver is now broken
by Jeffrey and Xiaoming on 2018/06/16 10:58
It used to be that you could use voiceover to read the word document, automatically turning pages. The newest version of Box disable that. As that was the biggest feature that I used in the app, the app is now useless to me and I have to go to a computer to have the documents recited to me. I get eyestrain and I cannot read documents on the computer, and printing them out waste paper. So the new version is bad for the environment. I may just go to Google Drive or Dropbox and take all my writing groups with me.
Had to Uninstall
by chiaroscurofx on 2018/05/20 07:08
Terrible. Established account, verified, then wouldn't allow me in. Had to establish a new account. Different email because they said I had an account there with the first email. Same thing happened. No access and never received second email to verify as stated in the app! I cannot believe Apple recommended this app. It is horrible. You can't even register. NO STARS. I verified 2 emails sent— delete all of my information please! Sheesh they make you give a star. Fine. I give 1 star but there should be a space for ZERO.
Once was great!
by Traffalger on 2017/09/20 03:06
I don't know what happened to this app but things like the constant "cannot load file" error is just terrible. It has persisted for more than a year. Despite them saying they are going to fix it it persists. It's very tough to remain patient and continue using this app. The fact that you can't upload more than 250 megabyte files without paying is a joke! Many other services have no limit. That and the "cannot load file error" on 80 percent of my photos has me looking elsewhere.
Upload needs to access Files
by The 14th on 2019/04/17 20:52
Overall, the app is great for retrieving and opening files; however, I cannot upload files such as Word documents or pdf files because there is no option to access the “Files” app in the iOS interface. I have to go the actual Box website through Chrome to upload a file.
Best Cloud Storage
by wldchildtx on 2019/05/19 18:25
I have counted on Box to store my “paperless” personal files for years, and I’ve never experienced problems with speed, reliability or security. Of all the options out there, this one serves all of my storage needs. I’ve even stopped storing files locally because of the numerous devices I use.
Do not use this app
by Volklpaige on 2018/06/17 17:44
When I first downloaded it everything went smooth. 6 months ago it would no longer accept my password and no matter how many times I updated it, the app would not take my new password. I’ve been unable to get access to my files for 6 months. I also can’t get into the website because it won’t accept my payment info and until that’s completed you will NOT have access to your files.
I tried Dropbox for my business Box is better
by Pro Motion Cinema on 2019/04/30 20:04
It’s the little things that makes a difference- Dropbox has more bells and whistles but when it come to collaboration Box is just easier to use- simple and effective. Too many hoops to jump through with Dropbox
Reliable cloud app
by fer146876 on 2019/09/15 15:26
The updated version is so much better than before, especially with iPhone. I can managed files easily on my phone than on my laptop. Thanks to the developers who keeps on doing things to make this app stable and reliable.
Needs a 15 sec rewind/fast forward option
by Pepperandspice on 2018/03/08 16:12
I listen to recorded educational material with box. It needs a 15 sec rewind/fast forward option. If you miss a word or phrase, there’s really no good way of rewinding the recording just a little bit. You end up wasting time trying to scrub the recoding backwards and having it land on a random part. You are then forced to re-listen to large portions just to hear a small missed segment.
No Longer Useful
by Skierbarry on 2020/01/30 02:06
I used to be a big fan of this app and used it like my C: drive saving everything on it. But overtime useful features have been removed or now have to be part d for such as auto backup for photos. The app is extremely unstable, crashing within 60 seconds despite all of the claims that bugs have been repaired to improve stability. I can’t even share items or save data from other apps to it for when I do I get error messages. I more or less stopped using it. A shame.
Intuitive
by bgo.2 on 2019/11/26 13:34
Exceptionally user-friendly and just works! I love the massive ability to integrate from so many different applications and programs. Has completely revolutionized our ability to store and handle paperwork in our small business.
Good but ...
by Malonabalona on 2019/02/08 03:24
The primary use of this app for my group is to load recorded talks, but there is no easy facility in Box to jump ahead or go back once a talk is loaded. On my tiny iphone screen, moving the blue button with my finger is frustrating. I would love fast-forward, fast-rewind, and 15-second jump forward/back buttons, or at least an easier slider for moving through recordings.
Terrible customer service
by deaconsdad1 on 2019/08/05 21:19
I downloaded this in the hopes of using it as a platform to share a certain kind of file. It didn’t work. Tried emailing to cancel signup next day way in advance if 15 day trial period, automatic billing started. No answer. Had to wait until they billed me. Called. Got outsourced to India or Pakistan. Guy said he’d cancel. Got 1 email. Never heard anything else. Had to dispute it with credit card I used. They have stopped payment. I wouldn’t use these guys. Outsourcing still? Hire some Americans.
Pop up upselling me when I already pay makes me angry
by Jeremy77777 on 2018/08/01 20:15
I pay yearly for box. Have for years. When I use the desktop version now I get a pop up every time I select a new folder trying to up sell me on a $5 per month security feature. It annoys me so bad I will not be renewing my yearly accounts that expire at the end of the month. Thank you marketing team. You’ve managed to drive away an existing customer. Your annoying continual pop ups drive people away. Paying customers! Baffles the mind.
Randomly logs out and deletes all offline data
by j!!!!!!!! on 2020/01/23 21:16
Ever since I updated the app on my phone this happens frequently and is making it very hard for me to continue using Box. It is no longer dependable for me and my work. Box team, please offer a way we can revert back to the older versions... I used an older version for years everyday and absolutely loved it. Now I’m left scrambling to put all my files on alternate platforms, just because of this cursed update. Thanks for listening to my cautionary tale.

One item for the wishlist
by -Vickster- on 2020/01/27 21:47
I like that I can play my MP3 files with the internal player but I sure do wish the internal player could also play OGG files! The android version of Box has that ability, so maybe you guys can think about adding it to the IOS version? Thanks for any assistance.
Box can’t upload photos
by Krishn3 on 2020/01/26 16:27
The recent version of Box can’t upload photos from iPhone photos. When uploading photos it gives message work completed but no photos are uploaded in the Box folder. The issue started happening after recent update to Box. Also choice of uploading photos to Box no longer appears in the iPhone Photos app. Something broke functionality of uploading photos to Box. Please fix it.
Love it

Application runs on average 49min of every hour. Uninstalled, reinstalled, turned off background app refresh, restored iPhone, etc... please look into this huge system drain.

Randomly logs out and deletes all offline data
by j!!!!!!!! on 2020/01/23 21:16
Ever since I updated the app on my phone this happens frequently and is making it very hard for me to continue using Box. It is no longer dependable for me and my work. Box team, please offer a way we can revert back to the older versions... I used an older version for years everyday and absolutely loved it. Now I’m left scrambling to put all my files on alternate platforms, just because of this cursed update. Thanks for listening to my cautionary tale.
Box

Box is awesome! I use it personally to store all my files and I can access them from any device and also update files! Bye Bye Flash Drive! Don’t have to worry about losing the drive or running it through the wash!

New update makes it useless
by MusicFan312 on 2020/01/15 23:11
I’m a musician. I send new mixes to band members all the time using box because it has been an amazing thing. The last iOS update and box update does this: I get logged out ever 3.5 mins and have to re-enter email & password and if I’m playing new mixes via Bluetooth it stops playing because I got logged out. Can’t even finish a song via Bluetooth. Frustrating for sure, been happening for a few days and I’m trying to work on the final mixes for a new album due for release in feb 2020 and can’t use box. Going elsewhere for now, probably be back if this gets worked out.
Won’t stay logged in
by revp on 2020/01/12 13:15
Box is my favorite cloud service and one of my favorite apps but this last update messed up a basic feature in the iPhone version. Even with “keep me logged in” selected, the app wants me to login every time I open it and it won’t allow me login with keychain passwords. Still have to type it in. The worse is that I have to re-save GBs of offline material each time I re-login. I usually give you guys a 5-star review for multiple reasons but this login issue is killing my workflow.
Finally a passcode or Face ID lock!

Simply doesn’t work
by KoowanPStark on 2020/01/08 22:23
Locks into an endless loop when trying to access the stored password so it’s impossible to sign in. TouchID doesn’t work and forces you to use your passcode, but that just loops back to the login screen. Password recovery doesn’t work either. Email never arrives. Who designed this horrible app?
Wish I could get it! Frustrating!
by Mafa1 on 2020/01/07 22:59
I downloaded the app, attempted to sign up. It said check email for confirmation...never have gotten the email. Checked junk mail, still nothing. Tried to resend several times. Nothing. After many attempts to reset password, etc... This is too much trouble.

I no longer recommend Box anymore. Instead of improving every time they update the app it seems like they add bugs and glitches. This latest update got very annoying. Every single time I open the app it asks for login credentials. This is a hassle because I use the app very frequently. Please fix it!

I found an MP3 file that I wanted to listen to. It was supposed to download in box. I tried installing the app. It wouldn’t open with my password. I asked twice for it to send me another password. Never got an email with the new password. Haven’t been able to use it yet.

Apple reimagined the iPad. You should reimagine this app.
by mytw0b1ts on 2019/12/15 21:19
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
by fWol on 2019/12/04 05:11
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.

In The past i was very Happy
by Josh bx on 2019/12/02 16:27
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. :(

by cimcopad on 2019/11/22 12:23
Great idea but this product needs a lot of improvement. It seems the mental model it was built with did not take into account the average user needs. Slow file opening, and strange and unintuitive language makes the application really hard to use. Spend some time with your users to see how frustrating it is to get things done with it!

With the new iOS software, Box.com no longer finds apps on my ipad to send files to (from box). If I revert back to the last update, it works fine.

Would be helpful but...
by bam_bam__ on 2019/11/11 20:37
The concept of the app is nice and simple but there is one very painful quirk that hasn’t gone away. I’m not certain that it is the app and not the iPhone implementation of it but regardless it’s obnoxious and takes extra time to work around. I use Box mostly for building prints and anytime I try to scroll through a document I am exited out of said document. It makes the app nearly unusable. Maybe I’m being hyperbolic but if this didn’t happen, it wouldn’t get a bad review.

Lots to like about Box but every time I use it on my iPad, I have trouble a) opening files on box from within word and b) saving a file to box if I started in another app - either Box is not designed to play well with other Apps on an iPad or they’re not designed to work with Box. Either way...Box slows me down enough that I just use OneDrive,

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.

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.

Better than google

I prefer a regular Apple programs over a monopolistic google app. This allows me to download books, and such that I receive from Kickstarter. 14 October 2019: My last review was short because I was both trying to do too much at the time and still enamored with finding a non google app that worked far better (IMO) than google. Aw, heck, this app still leaves google in the dust! It s • was easy to use • can handle everything that I ve asked it to handle • and best of all ~ No google ads!

Wish box was google drive
by Chalapathi on 2019/03/04 03:53
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
Sorry. Last Update Was Enough
by cjb3270 on 2019/01/19 01:55
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.

great app if you use it right
by ypolak on 2018/12/23 16:03
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.
Battery Hog
by Debford1 on 2018/01/14 17:14
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.
Reliable
by luvdetroit on 2019/10/06 17:16
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. 🙂
Works great
by Ron750 on 2019/10/05 08:06
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.
Overall genuinely satisfied
by rsherpa55 on 2019/07/12 16:32
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).

by Marco Polo Mint on 2019/01/13 19:58
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
by ChelaGlez on 2019/08/14 16:54
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
by Yodle_odler on 2019/10/04 03:23
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
by piranhadig on 2019/05/22 15:18
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.
iOS 11 Files app used to work, not this release
by CIO-SB on 2017/09/24 17:53
The previous release of the Box app worked as expected with the iOS 11 Files app, add Box in locations, authenticate and see your Box files in the Files app. Updated Box app today (9/24) and Files now says you must authenticate in Box app. From this point forward you can’t access Box files inside Files, you’re redirected to the Box app.
Something happened
by Ram99205 on 2017/10/10 02:18
Something happened, and a five star app went to a two or three star app. Thankfully, it appears that I don’t have to login each time I open the document. However, many of my pictures will not show now. Something is wrong with this new iteration. This has been a stellar app, and no doubt will continue to be, but somethings wrong with this version.
Fatal Bug: “Not a priority to fix it”
by AlbuquerqueFan on 2019/01/09 20:49
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?
Musicians look no further!
by Jasonhemphill2nd on 2019/05/22 16:59
Box is bar none my favorite way to transfer sessions, takes, and mixed down finals to clients. I use it nearly everyday. Do yourself a favor, pick it up. They are constantly updating the app to make it easier and easier to use and I am very happy with the changes even after 4+ years with the service. Box, You guys are awesome. Keep up all the good work!
Will not refund money
by mikecarpenterxray on 2019/02/28 18:26
Ordered by mistake, spent one hour the same day trying to find email or someway to contact them, they lead you to a website that you have to register your name and so on!!! Please don’t purchase!!! Today I finally had opportunity to request refund and immediately had response that I do not meet requirements for a refund!! BAD EXPERIENCE!! No customer service at all!!!!
Please add dark mode!
by LIBeaches2011 on 2019/09/24 21:42
As someone who relies upon technology and stares at white screens all day, the shift within iOS and MacOS to support more dark mode enabled apps is highly welcomed. Please add dark mode to the Box mobile and desktop apps for this light sensitive individual. OneDrive had this at iOS 13 release, why can’t you? It also needs native support for engineering files within the previewer in the mobile app.
Thanks for the update but....
by Scruffy guy in La on 2017/12/05 00:03
I like box very much however, there are still sync issues between all devices. Excel for example is a huge issue - repeated messages that say cannot sync. Frustrating. If I’m at a meeting and want to open a file - message states generating preview but says cannot. Repeatedly same error message. I’m looking for another program
Newly unusable
by mi.mo on 2017/09/26 12:25
I’ve been using box on my iPad, iPhone and computers for years. As of a couple of days ago, the app on iOS is asking me to sign in a new every single time. Because I have two step verification turned on, this is a serious hassle. Is there some weird security issue going on with Box? Are you all trying to earn more money from those of us who have been with you for a long time asking us to subscribe or something? (schmucky if so) Or is this just some terrible bug? In any case I do not, emphasize not,recommend starting out with this app it it is new to you until the Box folks repair it.
New update makes it useless
by MusicFan312 on 2020/01/15 23:11
I’m a musician. I send new mixes to band members all the time using box because it has been an amazing thing. The last iOS update and box update does this: I get logged out ever 3.5 mins and have to re-enter email & password and if I’m playing new mixes via Bluetooth it stops playing because I got logged out. Can’t even finish a song via Bluetooth. Frustrating for sure, been happening for a few days and I’m trying to work on the final mixes for a new album due for release in feb 2020 and can’t use box. Going elsewhere for now, probably be back if this gets worked out.
This app needs an upgrade
by Tupac's Cousin on 2019/08/02 03:10
This app would be great, IF it actually worked. Unfortunately, majority of the time, it doesn’t. Or if it does, it’s AWFULLY SLOW. Good luck uploading large files or a lot of small files it once.. What should normally take maybe a few minutes to upload will take FOREVER with box.. I’m talking an hour or more. Also, it often won’t load pictures/videos AT ALL. It will literally show a blank screen instead of loading the picture, no matter how long you wait. Bad functionality all around.
Forget playlists
by Googoyle on 2018/12/31 13:57
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.
Needs Drag and Drop Support
by Saving reset on 2018/04/19 20:01
The Box app for iPad is largely fine. I like the ability to quickly open a file in Microsoft Word and then be directed back to the app when closing. I would request however Drag and Drop support as it would make file management, especially when downloading files from email, more seamless and simpler to use.
Continuing ideas
by GarickMendez on 2019/11/10 11:28
I have it in my iphone, ipad and many MS Surfaces. I can work in any of those devices in any moment. Very successful approach. And better than dropbox because with box I don’t have limit number of devices (dropbox just 3). In box is Very easy to share my files with other apps. A five star definitely.
A few problems, almost perfect
by I R Tobi on 2017/12/05 17:53
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.
Won’t stay logged in
by revp on 2020/01/12 13:15
Box is my favorite cloud service and one of my favorite apps but this last update messed up a basic feature in the iPhone version. Even with “keep me logged in” selected, the app wants me to login every time I open it and it won’t allow me login with keychain passwords. Still have to type it in. The worse is that I have to re-save GBs of offline material each time I re-login. I usually give you guys a 5-star review for multiple reasons but this login issue is killing my workflow.
Would be helpful but...
by bam_bam__ on 2019/11/11 20:37
The concept of the app is nice and simple but there is one very painful quirk that hasn’t gone away. I’m not certain that it is the app and not the iPhone implementation of it but regardless it’s obnoxious and takes extra time to work around. I use Box mostly for building prints and anytime I try to scroll through a document I am exited out of said document. It makes the app nearly unusable. Maybe I’m being hyperbolic but if this didn’t happen, it wouldn’t get a bad review.
Pretty good on iPad. Wish files would appear alphabetized.
by frustrated subscriber number 2 on 2019/10/17 02:14
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.
functions broken
by pest5551212 on 2017/10/28 14:57
First, App Support link in iOS App Store leads to Safari error about too many redirects. Wanted to report app issue but can't, of course. Second, app persistently presents New Notifications Available message when opening app notifications settings. Message instructs to update app in order to see New options. However, app is as up to date as iOS App Store allows. App and Box drive are OK. Have to use because of employer.
Independent contractor
by bigohead on 2019/04/17 14:18
For someone who takes many pictures a day at different sites, it would be helpful if Box could sort pictures from my phone by location and/or date like my iPhone does. Taking pictures in Box is too slow
VoiceOver is now broken
by Jeffrey and Xiaoming on 2018/06/16 10:58
It used to be that you could use voiceover to read the word document, automatically turning pages. The newest version of Box disable that. As that was the biggest feature that I used in the app, the app is now useless to me and I have to go to a computer to have the documents recited to me. I get eyestrain and I cannot read documents on the computer, and printing them out waste paper. So the new version is bad for the environment. I may just go to Google Drive or Dropbox and take all my writing groups with me.
Had to Uninstall
by chiaroscurofx on 2018/05/20 07:08
Terrible. Established account, verified, then wouldn't allow me in. Had to establish a new account. Different email because they said I had an account there with the first email. Same thing happened. No access and never received second email to verify as stated in the app! I cannot believe Apple recommended this app. It is horrible. You can't even register. NO STARS. I verified 2 emails sent— delete all of my information please! Sheesh they make you give a star. Fine. I give 1 star but there should be a space for ZERO.
Once was great!
by Traffalger on 2017/09/20 03:06
I don't know what happened to this app but things like the constant "cannot load file" error is just terrible. It has persisted for more than a year. Despite them saying they are going to fix it it persists. It's very tough to remain patient and continue using this app. The fact that you can't upload more than 250 megabyte files without paying is a joke! Many other services have no limit. That and the "cannot load file error" on 80 percent of my photos has me looking elsewhere.
Upload needs to access Files
by The 14th on 2019/04/17 20:52
Overall, the app is great for retrieving and opening files; however, I cannot upload files such as Word documents or pdf files because there is no option to access the “Files” app in the iOS interface. I have to go the actual Box website through Chrome to upload a file.
Best Cloud Storage
by wldchildtx on 2019/05/19 18:25
I have counted on Box to store my “paperless” personal files for years, and I’ve never experienced problems with speed, reliability or security. Of all the options out there, this one serves all of my storage needs. I’ve even stopped storing files locally because of the numerous devices I use.
Do not use this app
by Volklpaige on 2018/06/17 17:44
When I first downloaded it everything went smooth. 6 months ago it would no longer accept my password and no matter how many times I updated it, the app would not take my new password. I’ve been unable to get access to my files for 6 months. I also can’t get into the website because it won’t accept my payment info and until that’s completed you will NOT have access to your files.
I tried Dropbox for my business Box is better
by Pro Motion Cinema on 2019/04/30 20:04
It’s the little things that makes a difference- Dropbox has more bells and whistles but when it come to collaboration Box is just easier to use- simple and effective. Too many hoops to jump through with Dropbox
Reliable cloud app
by fer146876 on 2019/09/15 15:26
The updated version is so much better than before, especially with iPhone. I can managed files easily on my phone than on my laptop. Thanks to the developers who keeps on doing things to make this app stable and reliable.
Needs a 15 sec rewind/fast forward option
by Pepperandspice on 2018/03/08 16:12
I listen to recorded educational material with box. It needs a 15 sec rewind/fast forward option. If you miss a word or phrase, there’s really no good way of rewinding the recording just a little bit. You end up wasting time trying to scrub the recoding backwards and having it land on a random part. You are then forced to re-listen to large portions just to hear a small missed segment.
No Longer Useful
by Skierbarry on 2020/01/30 02:06
I used to be a big fan of this app and used it like my C: drive saving everything on it. But overtime useful features have been removed or now have to be part d for such as auto backup for photos. The app is extremely unstable, crashing within 60 seconds despite all of the claims that bugs have been repaired to improve stability. I can’t even share items or save data from other apps to it for when I do I get error messages. I more or less stopped using it. A shame.
Intuitive
by bgo.2 on 2019/11/26 13:34
Exceptionally user-friendly and just works! I love the massive ability to integrate from so many different applications and programs. Has completely revolutionized our ability to store and handle paperwork in our small business.
Good but ...
by Malonabalona on 2019/02/08 03:24
The primary use of this app for my group is to load recorded talks, but there is no easy facility in Box to jump ahead or go back once a talk is loaded. On my tiny iphone screen, moving the blue button with my finger is frustrating. I would love fast-forward, fast-rewind, and 15-second jump forward/back buttons, or at least an easier slider for moving through recordings.
Terrible customer service
by deaconsdad1 on 2019/08/05 21:19
I downloaded this in the hopes of using it as a platform to share a certain kind of file. It didn’t work. Tried emailing to cancel signup next day way in advance if 15 day trial period, automatic billing started. No answer. Had to wait until they billed me. Called. Got outsourced to India or Pakistan. Guy said he’d cancel. Got 1 email. Never heard anything else. Had to dispute it with credit card I used. They have stopped payment. I wouldn’t use these guys. Outsourcing still? Hire some Americans.
Pop up upselling me when I already pay makes me angry
by Jeremy77777 on 2018/08/01 20:15
I pay yearly for box. Have for years. When I use the desktop version now I get a pop up every time I select a new folder trying to up sell me on a $5 per month security feature. It annoys me so bad I will not be renewing my yearly accounts that expire at the end of the month. Thank you marketing team. You’ve managed to drive away an existing customer. Your annoying continual pop ups drive people away. Paying customers! Baffles the mind.
Randomly logs out and deletes all offline data
by j!!!!!!!! on 2020/01/23 21:16
Ever since I updated the app on my phone this happens frequently and is making it very hard for me to continue using Box. It is no longer dependable for me and my work. Box team, please offer a way we can revert back to the older versions... I used an older version for years everyday and absolutely loved it. Now I’m left scrambling to put all my files on alternate platforms, just because of this cursed update. Thanks for listening to my cautionary tale.
