50GB of free cloud storage when you download the new Box iOS app

Native iOS app is intuitive and clean. Did we mention the 50 free GBs?

Box today launched a new app for iOS, meaning it works on iPhones and iPad, and for customers who download the app within the next month, they get 50 GB of lifetime free cloud storage.

Seems like a pretty good deal.

The new app has been built natively to run on iOS so it has an intuitive design and user experience for mobile devices. The app is free to download form the Apple iTunes store.

Within the app, users can create new folders, take a photo to store in Box, or choose which photos on their device to add to Box. Documetns can be copied, edited, moved or deleted, as well as shared via e-mail or a text message. Certain documents can be tagged to be available for viewing offline too. Users can also navigate to Box's OneCloud Apps, which is a marketplace of applications that run on Box's platform.  

The move marks the latest advancement from a company that had quite a successful 2013 (see link to story above). Its success thusfar has many people wondering if could be Silicon Valley's next IPO.
