While Windows Phone still does not have an official Dropbox client, it does have Microsoft’s in-house cloud service – SkyDrive – to fulfill the cloud storage needs of WP7 users. Now, joining SkyDrive is another popular cloud storage service – Box. The company has released its official Box app for Windows Phone that brings all the functionality present in the Android and iOS versions. The app also includes Live tiles for folders, the ability to batch upload multiple files, sharing files and folders with friends and more.
Todd Brix, senior director of Windows Phone Marketplace said “With its dynamic, pinnable Live Tile, easy file and image sharing and enterprise capabilities, Box for Windows Phone, is a great example of the rich applications users can find on Marketplace to take advantage of their phone’s unique features and design.”
The company is also working on an official Box application for Windows 8. Box for Windows Phone can be downloaded from the Marketplace for free.
In addition to this, Box announced a partnership with popular SoC maker – Qualcomm. Henceforth, all Qualcomm powered handsets, whether they are Android or Windows Phone, will come with the Box application pre-installed. Users will also get 50GB of free storage space, while Android users will get an access to some of the top paid apps from OneCloud that includes a PDF annotator, document scanner etc.
