We just received an email from the team over at Box advising that they’re up to some really big things.  For starters, they’ve updated the Android application with a completely overhauled user interface designed with Ice Cream Sandwich in mind.  In addition to the new look, Box for Android also adds support for major European languages (French, German, Spanish, Italian), as well as the ability to comment on files, invite new teammates to folders and other fun stuff.

To help spread the word about the new app, Box is giving everyone 50GB of free file sharing and storage for the life of their account.  All you have to do is download and install the v1.6 app over the next month.  Existing users are in luck as well and need only to update the current applications.

As if that wasn’t enough, Box has teamed with Samsung to help give away 20 Galaxy Tabs and 20 Box Enterprise seats to business who explain how going mobile will help them in the long run.

Box for Android Boosts Mobile Productivity With New Features, Free 50GB Upgrade

App Update Includes New Collaboration Capabilities and European Language Support

PALO ALTO, CA–(Marketwire – Feb 23, 2012) – Box® today launched an all-new version of Box for Android, bringing new collaboration features as well as support for several European languages to the rapidly growing number of knowledge workers on the Android platform. Available today for Android phones and tablets, the updated app features an overhauled user interface leveraging the Google Android™ 4.0 design, and makes it easy for users to be more productive on-the-go by commenting on Box files, inviting new teammates to folders, and more. All users who update or download the new Box for Android app in the next month will receive 50GB of free file sharing and storage for the lifetime of their Box account. In addition, Box and Samsung have teamed up to offer users an opportunity to win 20 Samsung Galaxy Tabs™ and 20 seats of Box Enterprise for their business.

“Legacy enterprise solutions simply can’t extend content and collaboration to the diverse set of devices that knowledge workers are bringing into today’s organizations,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. “At Box, we’re all about empowering mobile workers to be productive from anywhere, on any device, and today’s release sets a new bar for content sharing and collaboration on the Android platform.”

More than 100,000 businesses and 82% of the Fortune 500 use Box to manage information and collaboration online and from mobile devices. In fact, mobile demands are increasingly driving IT decisions and budgets. In a February 2012 report, “Mobile is the New Face of Engagement” by Forrester Research, Inc. report author, Ted Schadler predicts that, “Business spending on mobile projects will grow 100% by 2015. More than half of business decision-makers will increase their mobile apps budget in 2012 as they look for better ways to engage with customers and partners.”

New Collaboration Features and Language Support for Mobile Workers Across the Globe

Today, 40 percent of Box’s more than 8 million users are located outside the United States. To further Box’s international growth, the new Box for Android app offers localized European language support, with more languages coming soon. The app update also includes several key collaboration features, providing a more robust Box experience for mobile workers. Updates in this release include:

  • Localized language support in French, Italian, German and Spanish
  • The ability to view and add comments to individual Box files and invite a teammate to a folder
  • Improved uploading experience for saving content to Box, including batch uploading multiple files from an SD card and in-app progress notifications
  • Overhauled user interface that leverages the sleek Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) design, including a new Action Bar on phones and tablets

50GB Update and a Chance to Win 20 Samsung Galaxy Tabs for Your Business

For one month, Box is offering all Android users 50GB of free cloud file sharing and storage for the lifetime of their Box account, making it easier than ever to access large quantities of business content from anywhere. To claim their 50GB, users can simply update or download the latest version of Box for Android (version 1.6) and log in from their Android smartphone or tablet. New users will need to sign up for a Box account from their Android device. The offer is available for one month, ending March 23, 2012.

Box and Samsung have teamed up to show the power of the Box Enterprise solution and Samsung Galaxy Tab combination in today’s organization. For a chance to win tablets for your business, simply submit an essay of 200 words or less describing how Samsung Galaxy Tabs and seats of Box Enterprise will help move your business forward.

    Sad part about this update is that you have to pay to get any kind of sync to your computer. If all you’re doing is uploading pictures or videos this will be a good alternative. For what I need, you can give me petabytes of data and no computer sync and I’ll look elsewhere.

      Ever heard of Network locations? Do a search before moaning 
      and you might not end up with egg on your face next time. I don’t know, you’re given a 50GB free account and don’t take it up over something as simple as not searching how to sync. Unbelievable.
