John says:

I use box.net for my studygroup at college. It saves on alot of mass emails about assignments and sending out answers to questions to each individual person. Works great!!!

frog says:

LOL.... Rene, you don't pose to well for photos sometimes :p ... SMILE :)

Jin Lim says:

Just downloaded it after watching this video. The integration with Quickoffice...so awesome.

Freiteez says:

wow surprised this one is free. never heard of it but ill check this one out now.

Jason Tsai says:

hmmm never heard of it...love discovering new apps though!

Michael says:

Currently use dropbox to transfer files but after this am thinking about giving it a try.

ken says:

I now use box.net and dropbox- I use one for business and one for personal. The quickoffice integration makes life so much easier.

RRobinson4633 says:

I have yet to used the box.net integration on quickoffice yet. I'm going to try it right now!!

jhoffmeyer says:

I currently use Dropbox but if Box.net works with QuickOffice then maybe I'll need to try it out as well.

Orangensaft says:

"Like iDisk, but it works." That's actually pretty catchy. I've been steadily migrating my content from MobileMe to Google, and I'm just about ready to cut it loose. I would rather sacrifice my privacy (Google) than continue to pay (Apple) the $99 fee for slow, albeit quite functional and fun, web apps.

tyrran says:

This seems like an excellent cloud tool, and my MobileMe is actually going to expire in a month or so. I think it might be time to give this a try so I can actually utilize my documents a bit better (since I've had QuickOffice forever). Thanks for the heads up Rene!

Dyvim says:

I love the variety of free (and paid) solutions that are available on the iPhone (DropBox, box.net, iDisk, etc) as well as the WebDAV support built into many other apps (Readdle Docs). iPhone and iPad definitely need more ways to get apps to work together.

sputnik says:

This is a really useful app. My IT guys use it all the time.

ninjamattic says:

I don't really need it, but I can see how people out there would.

etc says:

I use Box.net all the time and didn't realize there's now an iPhone app. This looks great (even greater because it's free)!

zeagus says:

Cool deal, I wasn't aware that they had an iPhone app.

coolkendude says:

I knew of Dropbox first and never thought of installing Box.net on my iPhone but after this, I might just downlooad it.
