TiPb Apps 4.2 -- Box.net for iPhone (Macworld 2010)


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!!!

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

"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.

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!

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.

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)!

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