I’ve heard of Box.net before and love its services but they recently released a mobile version of their online storage service. Brian from Box.net emailed me saying “The Box app allows users to access files stored on Box.net, giving iPhone users the ability to store and access Word, Excel and PDF documents.”
I tried it out by going to i.box.net and it works great. I put some pdf documents on it and they loaded up flawlessly for me.
I will mention that I tried to stream an MP3 from Box.net to my iPhone and it didn’t work, I don’t know whether or not I had an issue while uploading it or if Box.net doesn’t allow you to stream MP3’s but none the less it didn’t work (I figured I’d give that a mention).
Other then that simple issue I had with music it works great. Box.net gives you 1GB of free online storage and you can upgrade to up to 15GB for $19.95/month or $199.95/year. They also have plans for 5GB at $7.95/month or $79.95/year, but the free 1GB plan is plenty for me.
If you need a place to store just about anything Box.net is great but it is even greater if you need access to your documents on the go.
