Boxie is a Dropbox client for iPhone that provides almost all the functionality that the Dropbox website itself provides. Aside from having a refreshing and beautiful interface, it comes complete with notifications for file system events, revision change options, and more.
The native Dropbox for iPhone app was recently updated with support for iOS 7 but for some of us, it's still lacking a lot of the functionality and tools we'd like. Boxie aims to close that gap by bringing a refreshing interface and design paired with lots of useful features.
Boxie has built-in support for background app refreshing in iOS 7 which means you can optionally be notified of changes made to your Dropbox or new files added. You can also view change revisions and revert to a previous file type natively from the app.
Compared to the native Dropbox app for iOS, Boxie's menu system is more robust and I've found that getting to options I want can be done in fewer taps. Swipe on an item to reveal an action menu that lets you manipulate, share, and manage the selected files. You can perform these actions on both individual files and entire folders. I particularly like that I can copy all the images easily inside a folder in two taps. That's incredibly convenient.
- Great interface and design, those that prefer darker themed apps will prefer it over the native Dropbox app
- Action menus are incredibly useful and in many cases, more robust and intuitive than the native Dropbox app's are
- Notifications for file system events makes it easy to know when people add files or changes are made to shared folders
- Currently no iPad client, but developers are working on it
The bottom line
Up until now, I've been pretty happy with the native Dropbox for iOS client. After using Boxie on my iPhone for a good while, there's no way I could go back. I find it much more intuitive and it just fits my style better. I can't wait to see the iPad version.
