Well that sure was fast. Just the other day I sat down with Sean from Box.net to discuss the online data storage service’s plans for the mobile space. In talking about how Box.net was gunning to cover the mobile, desktop, and web-based sides of the equation, we chatted about the Box.net iPhone application that was in the pipeline.
Turns out, the Box.net iPhone application went live last night!
The Box.net iPhone application offers cloud-storage fans unfettered access to their Box.net account, with some cool perks. In addition to being able to easily scroll through and view all your Microsoft Office, PDF, photo, audio and video files, the Box.net iPhone app integrates with your iPhone’s camera and contact list. That means you can share any files in your Box.net account with anyone in your iPhone contact list. You can also directly upload photos from your iPhone to your Box.net account.
The application monitors updates to your Box.net account, such as files or folders added by you and people that are collaborating and contributing to your Box.net account. And, the Box.net iPhone application automatically logs you into your account everytime you fire it up, so you get quick access to all your files in the “cloud.”
The Box.net iPhone application (iTunes link) is available for FREE from the iTunes AppStore.
If you don’t already have an account, Box.net invites you to sign up for a free 1GB account.
