Used to be good.
by Rimshak on 2021/10/17 16:05
This app continues to be buggy. Uploads will continuously fail. The server is slow as can be. Even on a 5G network uploading, it will pause forever between photos and the speed will be limited on the upload or download. I’m even paying $10 a month for this. It’s not the freebie plan.
Awesome! Love it
by Valeria0215 on 2021/10/15 19:50
So convenient and easy to use!!!! Love how organized this allows me to be! And free gigs?? Im upgrading! Thank you!!!
Clunky and archaic
by Astrid-ite on 2021/10/15 11:09
Quite honestly the worst cloud storage experience you could imagine.
It has always been garbage
by ShaunKing on 2021/10/14 03:07
This app and company only exist because of the enterprise IT community who overstate security risks. Basically what that means is that this software company just waits until Dropbox and Google Drive developers program innovation and then they try to copy it after they work around the IP and patents.
Good app, recent change was not a positive
by rmitchell68 on 2021/10/12 16:16
Rather than have favorites up front, a recent app update moved them into a Collections sub-menu. Unnecessary extra steps to get to your folders. Some of us in the corporate environment work all day in folders we aren’t the Owners of, so they aren’t in the primary home menu.
LOVE BOX!

Terrible for music playback
by Post it9876 on 2021/09/28 18:34
I use this app a lot for audio files and it takes forever to stream a file for playback. Even once it plays, it tends to buffer quite a bit
Great app but it need optimization
by Zombie322 on 2021/09/28 13:11
The app is great and all but it consume my battery even when I’m not using the app and turned off background activity. I still see the app in battery’s settings with background usage. (Note that I’m not even uploading or downloading any files from the account)
Buena para tener música en la nube

Free accounts are slow accounts
by pglazzari on 2021/09/25 19:07
I’ve had my account since 2012. It’s a free 50 gig account and in the last two years they have slowed the use down. Also it crashes and when I reinstall it I behaves the same. When I play music on it it crashes. No support!

It just works
by Commander colt on 2021/09/03 02:10
Box is great on all devices excluding the M1 macs. This is clearly more geared to Windows computers but it works on IOS if you are in a pinch.
What happened?
by SubwaySurferLikeYurMom on 2021/08/28 04:12
Used to be a fabulous way to store pics, and videos. Used to be able to make folders with dates, names etc. You can still do all that! But now the stuff you put in, is not visible…. Nor will it load. I can’t get them to download either. So all my stuff is gone. I trusted you Box…. I hear they won’t be fixing these issues either. Go with Google drive. Avoid this garbage.

10+ years and still LOVE Box
by An-Island-girl on 2021/08/15 19:28
I’ve been using the Box cloud service for many years now and have never had anything but a great experience. At the time I was not familiar with cloud services. Box has continued to update the app as use for such services has changed over the years. I often suggest the service to others.
It’s Good but Needs Updating
by Beotchcityxox on 2021/08/13 17:20
It’s alright, but it is extremely glitchy. It takes so long to download just a couple of files and if you exit the app for too long it will cancel all those uploads and you have to restart. It also is confusing as to how many files get uploaded so you’re unable to keep track because the number is inaccurate. I like how much storage it has and it is pretty easy to use, just needs to fix those design issues.
Plz fix this nowwwwwwwwww

Buggy interface constantly gets in the way of using the mobile app. Instead of adding “cool features”, how about fixing the numerous bugs that affect using the app?

Is Box going out of business?
by Johnson Brother on 2021/07/25 02:20
Be very careful before you put your company data in this app. I have been quite happy for 5 years with them. Now We are having severe problems with box data and the have no way to call them and thier customer service won’t respond. I can’t help but wonder if they are having big internal issues

Offline files not working well
by pazizipa on 2021/07/16 10:02
For me the offline files are the most important feature, and somehow they are not working well. I have a very fast connection at home, but somehow anything involving offline file synchronization is slow and unreliable.

by ASOK_1 on 2021/07/14 12:54
This is an great platform for storing your data. It is easily accessible from many devices & the security is excellent! Box is my favorite cloud storage.
Very glitchy with Videos
by Sirlink360 on 2021/07/06 01:51
I can’t record videos into it, it just goes black or otherwise malfunctions I can’t upload videos into it. It just doesn’t even try. I have an iPhone 7. Photos work fine, but videos don’t, and I don’t really have this app for any other reason other than to store videos.
useless client
by CopperRush on 2021/07/02 20:37
The most basic functions of a cloud service client is missing: cannot select files to upload, only photos and videos from library (and recently recorded audio) or scan documents directly.
Terrible customer service
by Curtistnm on 2021/07/02 02:08
Customer service was rude, incompetent and lacking knowledge. Definitely go with other options if you can!

Latest update makes it crash on open
by BCMjack on 2021/06/21 00:12
Good luck getting your files on this latest update. Not only is it a forced update in the sense you can’t get your files until you update, it doesn’t do any good because afterwards the app tries to show you what’s new and immediately crashes when you login! Screw you box! I have files I need and can’t get them! What kind of update is this?! Yet another way to force us to pay you money to get our files from your stupid servers?!
App is garbage

Painfully slow
by Nealc1-hundo on 2021/06/16 00:54
So slow it hurts. Dropbox or any other cloud storage service is 10x better. Not sure why anyone would use this over the industry standards. Incredibly frustrating to use because of speed, User interface, etc.
Update is needed
by Nadalein84 on 2021/06/14 11:12

Worst app
by justinj1028 on 2021/06/13 21:46
Worst app I’ve ever used, literally. I made a user name and password. Then I used it to sign in, did the captcha, then pressed continue and nothing happens…
Great alternative to Dropbox
by Bible Follower on 2021/06/11 01:19
I’ve been using Box for years and I have to say that it is better than Dropbox. They allow more storage for all the same functionality. I encourage anyone who uses cloud storage to use Box.

Box Is Upping It’s Game
by DonutSprinkles on 2021/05/13 17:18
I have used Box for a number of years now. I have always found even the free version to be useful from a personal standpoint. Also, my company has a paid account. I recently attended a webinar and found a lot of tips and new functionality to be very informative. Last night I needed to share some rather large files. They were easy to upload with “drag & drop” and simple to organize in folders. Box Rocks!

Horrendous
by Atlas Gross on 2021/04/30 08:01
I do most of my work on computers using “box sync” to make files available across all my devices. Among Dropbox and iCloud, Box is the WORST. Synchronization of files seems to be delayed to random intervals (both Mac and windows). Tonight, yet again, I had to go back to work to retrieve files saved on my work computer that failed to sync to Box cloud. I wish my work would abandon this pathetic platform.
Nice update!
by Stepwild on 2021/04/27 17:57
The freezing up issues appear to be gone. Love the new look! I can see files and images better now. Still a bit of flickering, but not as bad as before. Finally a decent update!
Box is great - with one exception
by Mark Sense on 2021/04/26 03:47
I love box. It is simple and straight forward...but there is no way to include Box folders in the Windows Explorer Search function. That means you need to do 2 searches to find things. Long ago, Box supported Windows Search. Sadly, the functionality was eliminated.
TERRIBLE APP
by 💭🥱🥱😡🤣💀😁ausj on 2021/04/21 23:48

Almost perfect
by Frank Greeene on 2021/04/18 16:14
This is a fantastic app that has so many great features. They would definitely have a 5 star rating from me if they implemented the +or- 10 second feature for audio/mp3 files.
The WORST customer support imaginable.
by Dex-1 on 2021/04/18 00:52
Box is great until anything happens or until you have any questions. Then it goes from hero to zero really quickly. They will deactivate your account without any notification or warning. Do not use them for a corporate account, especially if you are a regulated entity and need to get someone on the phone or need customer support quickly. You will not get it. You will be forced to go to your regulators hat in hand saying “our 3rd party storage provider may get back to me in a few days”, and hope for leniency. The best you will get in terms of immediate customer support is an email with a link that may or may not work.
Ruins your photos and videos
by Pantera160170 on 2021/04/14 19:22
Box drastically lowers the quality of your photos and videos after uploading them. I tried it because I ran out of room on Dropbox, but I think I’ll keep looking for an app that doesn’t destroy my photos.
Bug fixes required!
by IsaiahL18 on 2021/04/12 14:36

Great for teams using multiple tools
by Traveler72 on 2021/04/11 23:35
Box has been great to be able to work seamlessly with others who are operating on different platforms, many of which are heavily restricted in terms of using outside services. Box has been a secure and accessible platform for sharing weekly plans, maintenance tracking, and collaboratively edited files. Box Notes are a key tool for me in coordinating with staff and contractors.
Frustrating
by Ladylonglocks on 2021/04/11 14:49
Why do I have to keep renaming files because Box reverses my file name changes? This has been going on for weeks and happens several times a day. I initially thought it was related to reordering after a file deletion but that does not appear to be the case. No change to process seems to correct the problem. Please fix your annoying and time wasting bug. 5 Years ago: I use Box every day to move my art between computers and devices. The web page end of the app has been unusable for days, which makes the entire thing unusable. Please be responsible and test your changes before you make them public, this has gone on long enough.

Quit fixing things that aren’t broken!
by luvsevrything on 2021/04/04 15:04
The Box app used to be great. Now, not only is there an annoying sidebar overlay that randomly shows up, my files are basically inaccessible. Same issue everyone else seems to be having. The app freezes after looking at a page or two, it takes forever to load pages, it’s a mess. And it does this on PDFs I have marked as available offline which, you’d think, would make access faster! Nope, not unless I turn wi-fi off on my device. Also, it’s slaughtering my battery life.
APP IS FREEZING UP ON STARTUP
by ibdribbles on 2021/04/03 03:39
Use the app a lot between multiple devices and noticed several times during the day the app freezes up on launch...clear the app and launch again then it freezes again. Launch a third time and it starts up. Also noticed that when I try to view my documents or images while scrolling it may show the 1st, 2nd and third images but then the 4th image will be a blank image but the next will reveal. Try to scroll back to image it’s still blank page. Close and relaunch app and it shows the blank image but several images later it will be blank again. Using iPhone 8.0 with current apple iOS
Inaccessible, and borderline unusable
by Carlalee1980 on 2021/04/02 10:15
The mobile app is absolutely atrocious in regards to accessibility using voiceover. It is difficult to navigate, not intuitive at all in layout, and utterly ineffective and not user-friendly to a blind person. This is probably the most horrible app I have used since going blind.

Scanning Box is like looking a vomit in a toilet bowl. There are recognizable chunks floating in a soup of unidentifiable's. Store files in Box if you want to back them up. Do not expect to find them easily with dumb searches.
Fix the freezing and I’ll update my review
by That Kid KCow on 2021/03/27 14:37

Getting things done!
by Rod Regas on 2021/03/24 02:20
I’ve been using Box for a couple of years now as a way to share music files in production for musicians on the go, originally to let them listen to concept songs between gigs. Once the pandemic hit I was glad we had the infrastructure in place to support all the phases of the pre and post production cycles so we could keep moving with developing original tunes, our new way of getting things done! Thank you Box for making this possible.
Love it
by Neonangel1013 on 2021/03/23 00:23
I enjoy audio part of Box. It can do a list and I don’t have to scroll down to hear the next item. Thank you.
Picture Imperfect
by ljz261 on 2021/03/22 18:49
I’ve been using Box for a few years now and the iOS app experience for images constantly seems to be getting worse. Swiping between images in a folder was always tricky and not as swift as the photos app in iOS but now when you swipe to see the next image the screen goes blank and you have close the viewer and select the image again to see it. Also when loading a folder full of images the images flicker constantly. No other cloud storage app seems to have this issue.
UX?
by Steph 0321 on 2021/03/20 08:41
No further comment, Box is and remains a user unfriendly platform
Used to be great
by MajorlyCool on 2021/03/19 23:06

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. :(
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.
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
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.
PLEASE... Fix your audio playback!!
by Bozzman70 on 2020/11/19 17:14
I love this service and what it can do for artists and clients alike... however, whatever your compression algorithm is doing to the audio is making this service very hard to continue to use. I upload 24bit 48kHz quick times to clients to approve my mixes, and I always tell them to download the files to their computers, and the audio playback is poor. Your program is making audio sound like an MP3 from the 90s! Swimmy and muffled highs, comb-filtering at times with random frequencies. I have read many complaints about this service from many other users about the audio, and after testing this personally, they are correct... your audio compression needs to be fixed / updated.
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.
Best cloud service
by ZUMiller on 2020/12/10 19:31
Don’t be fooled! Box is way better than Dropbox. It works exactly how it should: it’s easy to organize and manage files. As a musician I love that it will play audio files in sequence, making it possible to make a mixtape or sequence songs and share. Great for hearing rough mixes on the go and sending them around. After trying SoundCloud, Dropbox, google Drive and others this is BY FAR the best. It doesn’t do any cute crap with the interface or try to curate your files; you can organize them exactly as you want. Plus it’s affordable. Fantastic job, Box people!
Great preview, except for Markdown
by SolidRate on 2020/11/13 09:34
I chose Box over a competing service because of the great file preview it offered: instead of relying on iOS's builtin preview, it makes a PDF in the cloud and displays that, so you can see your document exactly as it appears in its native app. It even does ODT files! Markdown preview was another great addition and worked for a couple of years, but for the last several months, I have gotten a blank popup every time I tap on a Markdown file. I reported this in the Box forums, but got not reply. So you only get 4 stars until this is fixed.
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.
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.
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. 🙂
Frustrating
by Ladylonglocks on 2021/04/11 14:49
Why do I have to keep renaming files because Box reverses my file name changes? This has been going on for weeks and happens several times a day. I initially thought it was related to reordering after a file deletion but that does not appear to be the case. No change to process seems to correct the problem. Please fix your annoying and time wasting bug. 5 Years ago: I use Box every day to move my art between computers and devices. The web page end of the app has been unusable for days, which makes the entire thing unusable. Please be responsible and test your changes before you make them public, this has gone on long enough.
Getting things done!
by Rod Regas on 2021/03/24 02:20
I’ve been using Box for a couple of years now as a way to share music files in production for musicians on the go, originally to let them listen to concept songs between gigs. Once the pandemic hit I was glad we had the infrastructure in place to support all the phases of the pre and post production cycles so we could keep moving with developing original tunes, our new way of getting things done! Thank you Box for making this possible.
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.
Lost Bookmark Access, Constant Offline Syncing
by blender651 on 2020/11/03 22:42
The old app used to be stable and useful, but has recently lost two critical features. 1) the button for accessing bookmarks in PDF documents is just GONE. For large PDF documents in my business, this is a big loss. And 2) The offline docs require constant syncing, pretty much invalidating the usefulness of the feature. It’s also really hard to find the offline docs, which used to have their own main tab. the app has also been very unstable compared to previous versions. Not sure what happened with the developer team, but this version is a big step backward.
Box Is Upping It’s Game
by DonutSprinkles on 2021/05/13 17:18
I have used Box for a number of years now. I have always found even the free version to be useful from a personal standpoint. Also, my company has a paid account. I recently attended a webinar and found a lot of tips and new functionality to be very informative. Last night I needed to share some rather large files. They were easy to upload with “drag & drop” and simple to organize in folders. Box Rocks!
Box = finally the killer app we were promised....
by big_sloop_johnb on 2020/06/30 13:47
Remember “web 2.0” and all that talk about a killer app that would arrive from on high and change your life? It never happened, well, not until now. If you have any more than a few files to manage, prepare for the arrival of the messiah and for your life to change. Box is the killer app you were promised. Now repent, you Dropbox savages, there is and can be only 1 true Box, and this is it!
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.
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???
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!
APP IS FREEZING UP ON STARTUP
by ibdribbles on 2021/04/03 03:39
Use the app a lot between multiple devices and noticed several times during the day the app freezes up on launch...clear the app and launch again then it freezes again. Launch a third time and it starts up. Also noticed that when I try to view my documents or images while scrolling it may show the 1st, 2nd and third images but then the 4th image will be a blank image but the next will reveal. Try to scroll back to image it’s still blank page. Close and relaunch app and it shows the blank image but several images later it will be blank again. Using iPhone 8.0 with current apple iOS
Activity panel is maddening
by TocaLoverGirl on 2021/01/31 18:11
The default to display the Activity panel on the right side (a “feature” that wasn’t always there) is so frustrating. Having to expand it to show the whole doc (over and over and over) pushes me to switch to another device, which I otherwise really don’t want to do. Please get rid of it or at least make it an option instead of the default.
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.
Great for teams using multiple tools
by Traveler72 on 2021/04/11 23:35
Box has been great to be able to work seamlessly with others who are operating on different platforms, many of which are heavily restricted in terms of using outside services. Box has been a secure and accessible platform for sharing weekly plans, maintenance tracking, and collaboratively edited files. Box Notes are a key tool for me in coordinating with staff and contractors.
Sharing
by Prettiest_eph on 2021/03/05 11:21
The fact you can’t share files between each other make this app so hard for me considering I have many different t files I transfer back and forth locally I’m my phone and this app makes it impossible I mean if I’m wrong lmk I’d love to be wrong cause cuz it’s very frustrating haveing to make an upload online file then name n download each file which takes forever
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!
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.
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!!!!
Poor MS Office Integration
by PennCCRN on 2019/08/09 01:47
The iOS Box app doesn’t function with the iOS MS Word and other office after this last update. Im fortunate that my company has both OneDrive & Box so I moved my storage to OneDrive after the MS functionality is no longer supported. It integrates and works much better. It does seem to work better with the web and on my laptop but it really doesn’t work with the iOS app.
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.
Picture Imperfect
by ljz261 on 2021/03/22 18:49
I’ve been using Box for a few years now and the iOS app experience for images constantly seems to be getting worse. Swiping between images in a folder was always tricky and not as swift as the photos app in iOS but now when you swipe to see the next image the screen goes blank and you have close the viewer and select the image again to see it. Also when loading a folder full of images the images flicker constantly. No other cloud storage app seems to have this issue.
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.
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
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.
Students file transfer DREAM!
by joasdfkhas on 2021/01/26 02:23
Google Drive, doesn’t work. Icloud, i have a windows pc. Dropbox, expensive. Box :) I’m a student right now so I use the free plan. Although this has been the best cloud service I’ve used so far. For now i just use this like a clipboard for files. So ill download a file into box on my IPad, then open said file on my pc. I might download a pdf on my PC and then drag an drop in in box, then read it on my phone or iPad. I love the free tier, and really hope that box is financially successful and is able to maintain the 5gb free tier. In time when I have a steady job, Box is one of those services that did me good for years, so I intend for this to be part of my working adult subscription budget.
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.
It’s Good but Needs Updating
by Beotchcityxox on 2021/08/13 17:20
It’s alright, but it is extremely glitchy. It takes so long to download just a couple of files and if you exit the app for too long it will cancel all those uploads and you have to restart. It also is confusing as to how many files get uploaded so you’re unable to keep track because the number is inaccurate. I like how much storage it has and it is pretty easy to use, just needs to fix those design issues.
Last update not good
by Mega-mojo on 2020/06/02 17:33
The app was working just fine until the last update. I was able to listen to audio files continuously even while working in other apps. Now I have to keep the app open and the audio file will shut off randomly between every two and five minutes. Which also means I have to keep tapping the screen every few minutes to keep listening. This isn’t working for me and it’s seriously inconvenient. May have to move everything to Dropbox.
10+ years and still LOVE Box
by An-Island-girl on 2021/08/15 19:28
I’ve been using the Box cloud service for many years now and have never had anything but a great experience. At the time I was not familiar with cloud services. Box has continued to update the app as use for such services has changed over the years. I often suggest the service to others.
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.
Error message
by Amarchbold86 on 2019/08/19 21:53
The only reason I’m giving it 2 stars is because i can still view the files I’m trying to save, just not in the folders I need them. If I would log into my account from another device I wouldn’t have any folders at all in there! Every time I try to save the files I get an error message!
Can’t download Box app 😕
by rk8102 on 2020/04/15 05:33
After years of using Box, my iPad quit working. We reloaded the same image on to a new iPad but now App Store won’t let me download the app and complains I need to upgrade my iOS version. It’s irritating because I was just using Box on my now broken iPad on that version (with 2FA.) While I work out what to do about the apps which will break when I upgrade, I can’t put Box files into emails from Box - breaking a major part of my workflow. Epson iPrint still lets me scan into Box, thank goodness, but now it’s extra work to send multiple files by email. Boo.
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.
Excellent Customer Service
by Harrrrrey on 2020/03/25 08:22
My account was suspended for reasons unknown to me. I was denied access and submitted a request for help per the sites institutions Within the week I got a reply that my issue was resolved and apologizing for the occurrence. I was able to log in and my files were still there. Thanks!!! My Dropbox account has been suspend

Used to be good.
by Rimshak on 2021/10/17 16:05
This app continues to be buggy. Uploads will continuously fail. The server is slow as can be. Even on a 5G network uploading, it will pause forever between photos and the speed will be limited on the upload or download. I’m even paying $10 a month for this. It’s not the freebie plan.
Awesome! Love it
by Valeria0215 on 2021/10/15 19:50

Clunky and archaic
by Astrid-ite on 2021/10/15 11:09
Quite honestly the worst cloud storage experience you could imagine.
It has always been garbage

This app and company only exist because of the enterprise IT community who overstate security risks. Basically what that means is that this software company just waits until Dropbox and Google Drive developers program innovation and then they try to copy it after they work around the IP and patents.
Good app, recent change was not a positive
by rmitchell68 on 2021/10/12 16:16
Rather than have favorites up front, a recent app update moved them into a Collections sub-menu. Unnecessary extra steps to get to your folders. Some of us in the corporate environment work all day in folders we aren’t the Owners of, so they aren’t in the primary home menu.

Terrible for music playback
by Post it9876 on 2021/09/28 18:34
I use this app a lot for audio files and it takes forever to stream a file for playback. Even once it plays, it tends to buffer quite a bit
Great app but it need optimization
by Zombie322 on 2021/09/28 13:11
The app is great and all but it consume my battery even when I’m not using the app and turned off background activity. I still see the app in battery’s settings with background usage. (Note that I’m not even uploading or downloading any files from the account)

by pglazzari on 2021/09/25 19:07

It just works
by Commander colt on 2021/09/03 02:10
Box is great on all devices excluding the M1 macs. This is clearly more geared to Windows computers but it works on IOS if you are in a pinch.
What happened?
by SubwaySurferLikeYurMom on 2021/08/28 04:12
Used to be a fabulous way to store pics, and videos. Used to be able to make folders with dates, names etc. You can still do all that! But now the stuff you put in, is not visible…. Nor will it load. I can’t get them to download either. So all my stuff is gone. I trusted you Box…. I hear they won’t be fixing these issues either. Go with Google drive. Avoid this garbage.

10+ years and still LOVE Box
by An-Island-girl on 2021/08/15 19:28
I’ve been using the Box cloud service for many years now and have never had anything but a great experience. At the time I was not familiar with cloud services. Box has continued to update the app as use for such services has changed over the years. I often suggest the service to others.
It’s Good but Needs Updating
by Beotchcityxox on 2021/08/13 17:20
It’s alright, but it is extremely glitchy. It takes so long to download just a couple of files and if you exit the app for too long it will cancel all those uploads and you have to restart. It also is confusing as to how many files get uploaded so you’re unable to keep track because the number is inaccurate. I like how much storage it has and it is pretty easy to use, just needs to fix those design issues.
Plz fix this nowwwwwwwwww

Be very careful before you put your company data in this app. I have been quite happy for 5 years with them. Now We are having severe problems with box data and the have no way to call them and thier customer service won’t respond. I can’t help but wonder if they are having big internal issues

Offline files not working well
by pazizipa on 2021/07/16 10:02
For me the offline files are the most important feature, and somehow they are not working well. I have a very fast connection at home, but somehow anything involving offline file synchronization is slow and unreliable.

Very glitchy with Videos
by Sirlink360 on 2021/07/06 01:51
I can’t record videos into it, it just goes black or otherwise malfunctions I can’t upload videos into it. It just doesn’t even try. I have an iPhone 7. Photos work fine, but videos don’t, and I don’t really have this app for any other reason other than to store videos.
useless client
by CopperRush on 2021/07/02 20:37
The most basic functions of a cloud service client is missing: cannot select files to upload, only photos and videos from library (and recently recorded audio) or scan documents directly.

Latest update makes it crash on open
by BCMjack on 2021/06/21 00:12
Good luck getting your files on this latest update. Not only is it a forced update in the sense you can’t get your files until you update, it doesn’t do any good because afterwards the app tries to show you what’s new and immediately crashes when you login! Screw you box! I have files I need and can’t get them! What kind of update is this?! Yet another way to force us to pay you money to get our files from your stupid servers?!

by Nealc1-hundo on 2021/06/16 00:54

Great alternative to Dropbox
by Bible Follower on 2021/06/11 01:19

Box Is Upping It’s Game
by DonutSprinkles on 2021/05/13 17:18
I have used Box for a number of years now. I have always found even the free version to be useful from a personal standpoint. Also, my company has a paid account. I recently attended a webinar and found a lot of tips and new functionality to be very informative. Last night I needed to share some rather large files. They were easy to upload with “drag & drop” and simple to organize in folders. Box Rocks!

by Atlas Gross on 2021/04/30 08:01
I do most of my work on computers using “box sync” to make files available across all my devices. Among Dropbox and iCloud, Box is the WORST. Synchronization of files seems to be delayed to random intervals (both Mac and windows). Tonight, yet again, I had to go back to work to retrieve files saved on my work computer that failed to sync to Box cloud. I wish my work would abandon this pathetic platform.
Nice update!
by Stepwild on 2021/04/27 17:57

Box is great - with one exception
by Mark Sense on 2021/04/26 03:47
I love box. It is simple and straight forward...but there is no way to include Box folders in the Windows Explorer Search function. That means you need to do 2 searches to find things. Long ago, Box supported Windows Search. Sadly, the functionality was eliminated.

This is a fantastic app that has so many great features. They would definitely have a 5 star rating from me if they implemented the +or- 10 second feature for audio/mp3 files.
The WORST customer support imaginable.
by Dex-1 on 2021/04/18 00:52
Box is great until anything happens or until you have any questions. Then it goes from hero to zero really quickly. They will deactivate your account without any notification or warning. Do not use them for a corporate account, especially if you are a regulated entity and need to get someone on the phone or need customer support quickly. You will not get it. You will be forced to go to your regulators hat in hand saying “our 3rd party storage provider may get back to me in a few days”, and hope for leniency. The best you will get in terms of immediate customer support is an email with a link that may or may not work.
Ruins your photos and videos
by Pantera160170 on 2021/04/14 19:22
Box drastically lowers the quality of your photos and videos after uploading them. I tried it because I ran out of room on Dropbox, but I think I’ll keep looking for an app that doesn’t destroy my photos.

Great for teams using multiple tools
by Traveler72 on 2021/04/11 23:35
Box has been great to be able to work seamlessly with others who are operating on different platforms, many of which are heavily restricted in terms of using outside services. Box has been a secure and accessible platform for sharing weekly plans, maintenance tracking, and collaboratively edited files. Box Notes are a key tool for me in coordinating with staff and contractors.
Frustrating
by Ladylonglocks on 2021/04/11 14:49
Why do I have to keep renaming files because Box reverses my file name changes? This has been going on for weeks and happens several times a day. I initially thought it was related to reordering after a file deletion but that does not appear to be the case. No change to process seems to correct the problem. Please fix your annoying and time wasting bug. 5 Years ago: I use Box every day to move my art between computers and devices. The web page end of the app has been unusable for days, which makes the entire thing unusable. Please be responsible and test your changes before you make them public, this has gone on long enough.

by luvsevrything on 2021/04/04 15:04
The Box app used to be great. Now, not only is there an annoying sidebar overlay that randomly shows up, my files are basically inaccessible. Same issue everyone else seems to be having. The app freezes after looking at a page or two, it takes forever to load pages, it’s a mess. And it does this on PDFs I have marked as available offline which, you’d think, would make access faster! Nope, not unless I turn wi-fi off on my device. Also, it’s slaughtering my battery life.
APP IS FREEZING UP ON STARTUP
by ibdribbles on 2021/04/03 03:39
Use the app a lot between multiple devices and noticed several times during the day the app freezes up on launch...clear the app and launch again then it freezes again. Launch a third time and it starts up. Also noticed that when I try to view my documents or images while scrolling it may show the 1st, 2nd and third images but then the 4th image will be a blank image but the next will reveal. Try to scroll back to image it’s still blank page. Close and relaunch app and it shows the blank image but several images later it will be blank again. Using iPhone 8.0 with current apple iOS
Inaccessible, and borderline unusable
by Carlalee1980 on 2021/04/02 10:15
The mobile app is absolutely atrocious in regards to accessibility using voiceover. It is difficult to navigate, not intuitive at all in layout, and utterly ineffective and not user-friendly to a blind person. This is probably the most horrible app I have used since going blind.

Scanning Box is like looking a vomit in a toilet bowl. There are recognizable chunks floating in a soup of unidentifiable's. Store files in Box if you want to back them up. Do not expect to find them easily with dumb searches.

by Rod Regas on 2021/03/24 02:20
I’ve been using Box for a couple of years now as a way to share music files in production for musicians on the go, originally to let them listen to concept songs between gigs. Once the pandemic hit I was glad we had the infrastructure in place to support all the phases of the pre and post production cycles so we could keep moving with developing original tunes, our new way of getting things done! Thank you Box for making this possible.
Love it
by Neonangel1013 on 2021/03/23 00:23
I enjoy audio part of Box. It can do a list and I don’t have to scroll down to hear the next item. Thank you.
Picture Imperfect
by ljz261 on 2021/03/22 18:49
I’ve been using Box for a few years now and the iOS app experience for images constantly seems to be getting worse. Swiping between images in a folder was always tricky and not as swift as the photos app in iOS but now when you swipe to see the next image the screen goes blank and you have close the viewer and select the image again to see it. Also when loading a folder full of images the images flicker constantly. No other cloud storage app seems to have this issue.
UX?
by Steph 0321 on 2021/03/20 08:41

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. :(
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.
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
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.
PLEASE... Fix your audio playback!!
by Bozzman70 on 2020/11/19 17:14
I love this service and what it can do for artists and clients alike... however, whatever your compression algorithm is doing to the audio is making this service very hard to continue to use. I upload 24bit 48kHz quick times to clients to approve my mixes, and I always tell them to download the files to their computers, and the audio playback is poor. Your program is making audio sound like an MP3 from the 90s! Swimmy and muffled highs, comb-filtering at times with random frequencies. I have read many complaints about this service from many other users about the audio, and after testing this personally, they are correct... your audio compression needs to be fixed / updated.
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.
Best cloud service
by ZUMiller on 2020/12/10 19:31
Don’t be fooled! Box is way better than Dropbox. It works exactly how it should: it’s easy to organize and manage files. As a musician I love that it will play audio files in sequence, making it possible to make a mixtape or sequence songs and share. Great for hearing rough mixes on the go and sending them around. After trying SoundCloud, Dropbox, google Drive and others this is BY FAR the best. It doesn’t do any cute crap with the interface or try to curate your files; you can organize them exactly as you want. Plus it’s affordable. Fantastic job, Box people!

I chose Box over a competing service because of the great file preview it offered: instead of relying on iOS's builtin preview, it makes a PDF in the cloud and displays that, so you can see your document exactly as it appears in its native app. It even does ODT files! Markdown preview was another great addition and worked for a couple of years, but for the last several months, I have gotten a blank popup every time I tap on a Markdown file. I reported this in the Box forums, but got not reply. So you only get 4 stars until this is fixed.
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.
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.
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. 🙂
Frustrating
by Ladylonglocks on 2021/04/11 14:49
Why do I have to keep renaming files because Box reverses my file name changes? This has been going on for weeks and happens several times a day. I initially thought it was related to reordering after a file deletion but that does not appear to be the case. No change to process seems to correct the problem. Please fix your annoying and time wasting bug. 5 Years ago: I use Box every day to move my art between computers and devices. The web page end of the app has been unusable for days, which makes the entire thing unusable. Please be responsible and test your changes before you make them public, this has gone on long enough.
Getting things done!
by Rod Regas on 2021/03/24 02:20
I’ve been using Box for a couple of years now as a way to share music files in production for musicians on the go, originally to let them listen to concept songs between gigs. Once the pandemic hit I was glad we had the infrastructure in place to support all the phases of the pre and post production cycles so we could keep moving with developing original tunes, our new way of getting things done! Thank you Box for making this possible.
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.
Lost Bookmark Access, Constant Offline Syncing
by blender651 on 2020/11/03 22:42
The old app used to be stable and useful, but has recently lost two critical features. 1) the button for accessing bookmarks in PDF documents is just GONE. For large PDF documents in my business, this is a big loss. And 2) The offline docs require constant syncing, pretty much invalidating the usefulness of the feature. It’s also really hard to find the offline docs, which used to have their own main tab. the app has also been very unstable compared to previous versions. Not sure what happened with the developer team, but this version is a big step backward.
Box Is Upping It’s Game
by DonutSprinkles on 2021/05/13 17:18
I have used Box for a number of years now. I have always found even the free version to be useful from a personal standpoint. Also, my company has a paid account. I recently attended a webinar and found a lot of tips and new functionality to be very informative. Last night I needed to share some rather large files. They were easy to upload with “drag & drop” and simple to organize in folders. Box Rocks!
Box = finally the killer app we were promised....
by big_sloop_johnb on 2020/06/30 13:47
Remember “web 2.0” and all that talk about a killer app that would arrive from on high and change your life? It never happened, well, not until now. If you have any more than a few files to manage, prepare for the arrival of the messiah and for your life to change. Box is the killer app you were promised. Now repent, you Dropbox savages, there is and can be only 1 true Box, and this is it!
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.
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???
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!
APP IS FREEZING UP ON STARTUP
by ibdribbles on 2021/04/03 03:39
Use the app a lot between multiple devices and noticed several times during the day the app freezes up on launch...clear the app and launch again then it freezes again. Launch a third time and it starts up. Also noticed that when I try to view my documents or images while scrolling it may show the 1st, 2nd and third images but then the 4th image will be a blank image but the next will reveal. Try to scroll back to image it’s still blank page. Close and relaunch app and it shows the blank image but several images later it will be blank again. Using iPhone 8.0 with current apple iOS
Activity panel is maddening
by TocaLoverGirl on 2021/01/31 18:11
The default to display the Activity panel on the right side (a “feature” that wasn’t always there) is so frustrating. Having to expand it to show the whole doc (over and over and over) pushes me to switch to another device, which I otherwise really don’t want to do. Please get rid of it or at least make it an option instead of the default.
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.
Great for teams using multiple tools
by Traveler72 on 2021/04/11 23:35
Box has been great to be able to work seamlessly with others who are operating on different platforms, many of which are heavily restricted in terms of using outside services. Box has been a secure and accessible platform for sharing weekly plans, maintenance tracking, and collaboratively edited files. Box Notes are a key tool for me in coordinating with staff and contractors.
Sharing
by Prettiest_eph on 2021/03/05 11:21
The fact you can’t share files between each other make this app so hard for me considering I have many different t files I transfer back and forth locally I’m my phone and this app makes it impossible I mean if I’m wrong lmk I’d love to be wrong cause cuz it’s very frustrating haveing to make an upload online file then name n download each file which takes forever
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!
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.
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!!!!
Poor MS Office Integration
by PennCCRN on 2019/08/09 01:47
The iOS Box app doesn’t function with the iOS MS Word and other office after this last update. Im fortunate that my company has both OneDrive & Box so I moved my storage to OneDrive after the MS functionality is no longer supported. It integrates and works much better. It does seem to work better with the web and on my laptop but it really doesn’t work with the iOS app.
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.
Picture Imperfect
by ljz261 on 2021/03/22 18:49
I’ve been using Box for a few years now and the iOS app experience for images constantly seems to be getting worse. Swiping between images in a folder was always tricky and not as swift as the photos app in iOS but now when you swipe to see the next image the screen goes blank and you have close the viewer and select the image again to see it. Also when loading a folder full of images the images flicker constantly. No other cloud storage app seems to have this issue.
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.
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
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.
Students file transfer DREAM!
by joasdfkhas on 2021/01/26 02:23
Google Drive, doesn’t work. Icloud, i have a windows pc. Dropbox, expensive. Box :) I’m a student right now so I use the free plan. Although this has been the best cloud service I’ve used so far. For now i just use this like a clipboard for files. So ill download a file into box on my IPad, then open said file on my pc. I might download a pdf on my PC and then drag an drop in in box, then read it on my phone or iPad. I love the free tier, and really hope that box is financially successful and is able to maintain the 5gb free tier. In time when I have a steady job, Box is one of those services that did me good for years, so I intend for this to be part of my working adult subscription budget.
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.
It’s Good but Needs Updating
by Beotchcityxox on 2021/08/13 17:20
It’s alright, but it is extremely glitchy. It takes so long to download just a couple of files and if you exit the app for too long it will cancel all those uploads and you have to restart. It also is confusing as to how many files get uploaded so you’re unable to keep track because the number is inaccurate. I like how much storage it has and it is pretty easy to use, just needs to fix those design issues.
Last update not good
by Mega-mojo on 2020/06/02 17:33
The app was working just fine until the last update. I was able to listen to audio files continuously even while working in other apps. Now I have to keep the app open and the audio file will shut off randomly between every two and five minutes. Which also means I have to keep tapping the screen every few minutes to keep listening. This isn’t working for me and it’s seriously inconvenient. May have to move everything to Dropbox.
10+ years and still LOVE Box
by An-Island-girl on 2021/08/15 19:28
I’ve been using the Box cloud service for many years now and have never had anything but a great experience. At the time I was not familiar with cloud services. Box has continued to update the app as use for such services has changed over the years. I often suggest the service to others.
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.
Error message
by Amarchbold86 on 2019/08/19 21:53
The only reason I’m giving it 2 stars is because i can still view the files I’m trying to save, just not in the folders I need them. If I would log into my account from another device I wouldn’t have any folders at all in there! Every time I try to save the files I get an error message!
Can’t download Box app 😕
by rk8102 on 2020/04/15 05:33
After years of using Box, my iPad quit working. We reloaded the same image on to a new iPad but now App Store won’t let me download the app and complains I need to upgrade my iOS version. It’s irritating because I was just using Box on my now broken iPad on that version (with 2FA.) While I work out what to do about the apps which will break when I upgrade, I can’t put Box files into emails from Box - breaking a major part of my workflow. Epson iPrint still lets me scan into Box, thank goodness, but now it’s extra work to send multiple files by email. Boo.
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.
Excellent Customer Service
by Harrrrrey on 2020/03/25 08:22
My account was suspended for reasons unknown to me. I was denied access and submitted a request for help per the sites institutions Within the week I got a reply that my issue was resolved and apologizing for the occurrence. I was able to log in and my files were still there. Thanks!!! My Dropbox account has been suspend
