Think that Dropbox’s space limitations are too limiting? Then Android owners will especially love Box. This cloud storage service offers a killer feature for users who sign up through the Android app: 50GB of lifetime storage for the low, low price of free. Files can be shared through Android’s built-in sharing services. Note that unlike Dropbox, there does not appear to be a free desktop synchronization app, so that space does come at a price, although files are easily available via the web as well. Apps can integrate with Box, such as File Expert, which can log in to Box accounts and access files from there. Unlike iOS, Box integration in apps is less of a potential issue because of Android’s built-in sharing features.
As well, Box is running a contest for businesses to give away twenty Samsung Galaxy Tabs and twenty Enterprise subscriptions to Box. Submissions are due by March 8th. The Box app is available for free from the Android Market.
