Box.net Offers iOS Users 50GB Of Free Online Storage

Box.net has announced an intriguing promotion that should interest Apple fans. The company is currently offering 50GB of free online storage to anyone with a free Box Personal account on their iOS device.

The 50GB of storage is ten times what Apple’s iCloud service offers users for free, and is being offered free with no strings attached. A comparable amount of storage on DropBox would cost $9.99 per month, and a comparable amount of storage through Apple’s iCloud service would cost $100 per year.

Box.net can be used to store photos, documents, videos, music, or other digital files safely on Box.net’s servers, and files stored there can be accessed anywhere there’s an internet connection. What’s also notable about the service is that Box.net’s free iOS app (link) includes wireless AirPlay streaming of photos, videos, presentations and other types of files you may have stored on their servers, and also fully integrates with Google Docs.

In order to take advantage of this offer, you need only download Box.net’s iOS client (Free, App Store Link) and claim your free storage beginning at 12:01 p.m. pacific tomorrow, October 14th. The promotion will be available for 50 days after it begins tomorrow afternoon.

  1. Box.net’s iOS apps are TERRIBLE, especially in comparison to Dropbox’s. I’ll definitely sign up for Box now though, in hopes that they update their apps in the near future.

      Sorry to hear that, Robert! Hopefully we add some improvements in the future that make you happy. 

      1. I would love to have the ability to add/delete files and folders from the mobile app (especially iPad).

        I do however like the fact that I can cache files for offline use, comment and share them as well (not sure if this was recently added in an update, but I hadn’t noticed it before).

    So, if I stoop to getting an IOS device, I can have another 50GB on Boxnet? I already have 50GB, from my Touchpad puchase months ago. Sloppy Seconds for Mac users.
