Free cloud content management app

Box is a free cloud content management and storage app used on many devices, including Apple’s iOS. Box is created by Box Inc. solely to store and manage data, documents, photos, videos, etc. 

Cloud computing and content management

With recent technological advances, you don’t have to store data and files on external drives and USB sticks when your phone or laptop storage runs out. 

Now you can use cloud storage services like Google Drive, Box, iCloud, and Dropbox. However, Box offers the following benefits: 

  • Better workflow and team collaboration: Providing teams access to a shared repository, allowing them to share, update, and retrieve documents. This shared repository reduces the number of emails sent, duplicate records and improves communication between team members.
  • Improving digital work simplicity: Box is simplifying digital work by providing creative business designers with the tools they need. Thus, increasing productivity and team performance and mitigating organizational risks.
  • Mission-critical business applications: Over the years, Box has released new SDKs, packaged integration hubs, and platform elements to integrate with ServiceNow, Google G-Suite, Oracle, and Outlook. It is allowing customers to develop mission-critical apps.
  • High-grade security: Box continually improves its cloud content management compliance and security capabilities with a hosting service that uses Geofences for content storage in predefined geographical areas. Box introduced new legal holds like e-discovery and two-factor authentication for its external collaborators.

Cloud storage on your phone

You can collaborate with teams and updates data, files, and documents on the go. The app is easy to use and understand. Some people have complained that the app is a tad bit slower than other Cloud apps like Dropbox, Google Drive, and iCloud.
