Box app also gets file previews, offline folders

Cloud storage service Box announced a major upgrade for its Android app today, bringing a range of new features aimed at streamlining workflows and increasing the app's usability on the road. Box for Android now gives users the ability to preview documents within the Box app, without having to open them in another app. More than 75 types of files can be previewed in this manner, including Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, Excel spreadsheets, Adobe PDFs, Photoshop documents, and more.

The update also brings the ability to swipe left and right in order to navigate between files. It adds the ability to save a folder for offline use, as well as single files. The app displays when a file or folder is out of date as well, so that users can know when to update their data.

The update brings a range of other functionality and feature changes, including the ability to go directly to the Box app from a shared link or to directly change file and folder names within the app. Users can update to the newest version of Box by downloading it for free from the Google Play Store.
