We want to make it incredibly easy for you to share, manage and access important content from absolutely anywhere. And to ensure that storage limitations never get in the way of your sharing, we’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with LG to offer free 50GB Box Personal accounts on all LG phones and tablets in the U.S. running Android OS 2.1 and above (with display resolution of 320x480 or higher).
This announcement comes at an exciting time: Android continues to gain massive traction in the marketplace, with Gartner reporting that 52.5% of smartphone sales in Q3 2011 were Android devices. That’s more than double the same quarter of 2010.
Want to claim your Box 50GB? Just log into Box for Android on your device before December 31, 2012. If you don’t have a Box account yet, be sure to download the app on your LG Android phone or tablet. You’ll have 50GB of free, secure file storage and sharing for the life of your account.
And to help you work smarter from the road with all that extra space, we've also released a new version of Box for Android that includes several highly requested features. First, we added the ability to download files from Box to your device. This feature is important for sales reps and project managers that need access to key documents from the road.
In addition, we added offline mode, which lets you access those downloaded files from your Box account even when you’re not connected to the Internet. This makes it possible to stay productive when you don’t have a connection, whether you're in Box or other Android apps like Astro or Quickoffice.
It's now easier to get files, videos and photos into your Box account with the new bulk upload capability – a big time saver when you’re backing up a lot of content from your phone or tablet. To round it all out, there's an updated UI, so you’ll notice the app is easier to navigate for faster access to your files.
