The company says it’s focus on security for business users makes its approach to collaborative note capturing and sharing differently than other offerings. Box’s new Notes feature on iPhone and iPad is presented in the same app as other media stored in the cloud service as it’s a single app to know and manage.
“At its core, Box Notes is about making it easy to work with others. It promotes the sharing of information and collaboration. Live, concurrent editing lets everyone read and make changes instantly together. This is great for meetings – even when some participants aren’t in the office. And with today’s global workforce, not everyone is online and working at the same time – Box Notes is great for those situations too. Notes are automatically available to collaborators of the folder, so there’s no need to share each individual note with the people who need it.”
Box currently offers users 10GB of free storage with 100GB and unlimited storage options available for paid subscribers. The latest version of Box for iPhone and iPad is rolling out today on the App Store; the cloud service says Box Notes will roll out to mobile users on Android later this summer.
