Windows 8 and Cloud Service Box:
Cloud Service Box provides support for many Operating systems including mobile device systems as Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone and WebOS can run the Box.
Windows 8 App for Box is pretty neat as compared to web version of the Box it works really smoothly and has about rating of good. The application can be downloaded for free and can be downloaded from the Windows 8 store. Box application is pretty useful as you can pin it to your tiles and upload quick, you can add, delete and view the files directly you can search the required file or folder or Pictures in the Box from the Charms search but in order to upload the files you have to go to all files and it becomes inconvenient, The lack of opening files internally makes Box a little backward.
If we talk about the overall usage and overall experience then Box is one of the Best Cloud Services available as it provides support for 150+ platforms integration and makes us do cloud on Social Services as well. With Cloud we don’t have to worry about our data backup and we can create more protection through Setting up password, the Box provides 256K encryption that means no security tension at all!
