Box launches Windows Phone app

Windows Phone has a new cloud app client to download today. Box announced that its popular business oriented cloud service can now be accessed via its new Windows Phone app.

The app is now available via the Windows Phone Marketplace. In a post on the official Box blog, the company goes over some of the features of the Windows Phone app, including quick searching of files in your Box account, sharing files with others, being able to delete, rename or move files quickly and more.

Box also goes over the more unique Windows Phone features in the app.

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.

The Windows Phone app is also available in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Japanese.

The blog post also announced that Box now has a partnership with processor maker Qualcomm. That team up will result in Box being pre-loaded on some Android and Windows-based hardware that will have Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor inside.

This to me is exactly why windows phone 8 will be very successful.. windows 8 is coming out so they are building a windows 8 app and thought they might as well just make a windows phone app as well..

exactly the same reason the ipad was so successful when it was released because many people had already created iphone apps..

This is the same reason that blackberry will not be able to compete against windows phone... they do not have these economies of scale in their ecosystem

"That team up will result in Box being pre-loaded on some Android and Windows-based hardware that will have Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor inside." So I guess Windows RT tablets wont escape the curse of bloatware. Thanks guys.

Just like with carrier apps on Windows Phone, it takes two taps to uninstall them.
