Best Windows 8 Apps
23 November 2015
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.

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.
Is every cloud storage option complete crap on windows? Dropbox won't open most documents, onedrive complains about file paths being too long, and this one doesn't even open - just shows "box" on a big white screen for 5 seconds before minimizing itself.

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.

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!!

I cant get the app to open

The instructions are lacking and this app does not seem to be capable of making shared files available offline for read-only, like the android and IOS versions do. If this could be updated, this would be a great app for windows tablets like the Surface 3.

Nice App but I cannot upload from my computer to my box.net account. It appears to be a view only interface.
Poor implementation... Can login on others devices and the website, but not using this Win 8 app.

This app smartly displays box files, and even allows regular saving directly to the box cloud drives without any permanent storage to the computer, which can be quite helpful for ARM based Windows devices that cannot install Box Edit. Unfortunately the application does not monitor flawlessly over long sessions and will often provide a message that the transfer failed (May be related to architecture and operating system limitations). This can be easily remedied by manual transfers, which may be somewhat inconvenient. Also contains some of the intrinsic limited understandings Box has of common file types such as *.xlsm files (macro-enabled Excel Workbooks).

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) 2 GB is a lot for free!

Why would you make the action the same for highlighting and opening a file. Then accidently opening a file unhighlights the multiple file that you were trying to move. Very frustrating. >:(

The only missing components to this is some type of integration with OneDrive, and the ability to save directly to Box. Oh and congratulations on your stock offering

The app won't work in portrait mode on a tablet. Completely pointless for PDF files I have. This will make me switch to another cloud service.
dịch vụ lưu trữ rất tuyệt vời, thanks very much

there is no purpose for this app

The very basic interface which allows no modification to make it more useful. Skip it and use the online access. Too bad there are no instructions so good luck finding out how to sync.

Loads way too slow & give nothing for information on how to use

On the Surface 2 I am locked into a view of files and folders that only shows first 25 characters of the file name. This is frustrating and I wish we could just have a detail list view of the files like we would have in windows explorer but I see no option to do so. If they were to add different views it would be a lot more useful.

Use this as you would a cloud setting, be careful what you use it for.
