Sweet.

 

If you update the iOS version of Box (version 3), you now get 50GB free storage. Which is nice.

Except that files are still limited to 250mb in size.  I'll stay with dropbox.

I installed on a Nexus 5 last week and it bumped me to 50GB as well but as #Michael says the 250mb limit is a put off and selective syncing like Dropbox isn't in the Mac client.

Why should a 250MB limit be a drawback when only videos are that big? or am I missing something?

Thanks for the heads up (Y)

And for the complaints regarding file space: can always zip up your files and use multiple volume spanning.

Yeah, but it'd be like going back to the 90s if you had to do that with every big file.  :laugh:

That's true. Still though, I like having 50 GB as an offsite backup source.
