Needs some additional views

This app works well at showing me the files and folders associated with the various projects in which I'm assigned. Unfortunately those folders/files are presented in a File Explorer "Tile" view which means any file name that's longer than 15-16 characters (IOW, all of them) show up as ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP...docx There's no way to change to a list view or details view to see the full file name. There's also no hover and see the file name is a tool tip. If additional views are offered this tool will be very useful. The workaround is to use a web browser or sync the files locally. The former works well but I don't have the SSD space for the latter.

Very Useful

Gives me a way to share important files on my site. Easy to use and pretty reliable.

Good until it lasted

For a week now, the application won't work. Right after opening, the application crashes. However, it stays on the taskbar as an open program. It has been a week since I reported it. I would not recommend this application and neither the competition, Dropbox, because both are useless now--same level.

Really guys...?

App was working great until the last update. Now the app won't even open. Really needing a quick fix! Guess I'll go back to my Android version of Box.

In my top 10 for Windows RT

UPDATE: THEY BROKE IT WITH THE LAST UPDATE WHICH ADDED THE "for Windows 8" at the end of the name. APP WILL NO LONGER OPEN ON Windows RT - it crashes in under 5 seconds after opening. This app has to be one of the best working apps for Windows RT, and I could probably put it in the top 5 if we exclude Microsoft made apps. Only two glitches I have found: 1. File name truncation, as mentioned here by many other people 2. If you put the device to sleep while a file is open, it will not sync back to box, always gives an error. I think this might have something to due with RAM access and the way Windows RT resumes from sleep. Other than that, wonderful app!! And thank you Box for supporting Windows apps!!

Watch out for the sync trap

Would be great if I could trust the sync feature 100%. NEVER expect the document to just sync without saving it locally or you will lose your data. If the network fails or it takes forever to sync it may lose all of your changes.

Simple & Very Useful!

This app saved my picture collection that I uploaded to it to test. Then my laptop died unexpectedly! I found out how important back up is in real life. (you'd think I knew, I have been computing since the early '90's) 10 GB is a lot for free!

Needs one feature

It drives me insane that I can't select and save more than one file at time to my device(SP3). If there is a way to do this I can't find it.

feel disconnected

I cannot sync the documents with the apps only... so inconvenient, dropbox will do that for me automatically.... so does google drive, need to improve..

Was very good, now hopeless

Used this successfully for a few years but could never really work out my storage level and problem this year is much worse. Have 50GB in account but deleting files and clearing trash never reduced storage. Currently have deleted everything but still recorded as having 32.7GB three months later. Really, there are better packages on offer - not sure now that there are many worse!
