Along the way, we have also improved the consistency and usability of many components in the apps, including the transfer manager, menus, breadcrumbs and other navigation experiences.

To reach even more users across the world, we have also introduced language support for Polish and Turkish. Our Windows apps now support a total of 19 languages.

These enhancements are the culmination of a significant backend update and will give our team a solid foundation on which to build future features with greater speed and performance. Get the new apps for Windows Phone and Windows 8 today, and let us know what you think at or @BoxHQ.

If you’re a developer, you may be interested to know this update directly utilizes our recently-released Windows SDK, so you can feel confident using it to build apps as fully featured as our own.
