Box launches their mobile app for Windows Phone platform

Box has been offering their cloud storage app on Apple iOS and Google Android devices for a long time now.

They have finally announced their mobile app for the Windows Phone platform.

Box for Windows Phone is now available as a free download from the official mobile store.

The company said:

We’re excited to offer a fully native experience for Windows Phone that has all the features you’d expect from Box and more.


Collaborate from anywhere

In addition to being able to access and view content, you can also invite colleagues to work with you in folders, leave comments and share links to content right from the app.

Mobile search

Need to find a file fast? Search your Box account right from your phone to find your critical content in seconds. Simply tap the search icon in the Application Bar and type something to find that file or folder you’re looking for.

File management

Deleting, moving and naming folders or files is a breeze, and you can even do these actions in bulk! Tap the left margin next to files and folders to start selecting multiple items, then choose whether to move, copy or delete them from the Application Bar.


We know security is a top priority for businesses, so we’ve included an application-specific passcode lock as an extra layer of protection to keep prying eyes off your sensitive Box content.

Windows Phone goodies

We designed our app to really take advantage of this platform’s unique characteristics and capabilities. You can pivot between files, updates and collaborators, start slideshows for images just like in the Pictures Hub and even pin Live Tiles to your Start screen to see when colleagues leave updates on Box.
