Box update

LG's continued partnership gets users 50GB of storage for free

Cloud-storage provider Box today is releasing a major update to its Android application, adding a few new features and continuing its partnership with LG to bring a goodly amount of storage to the South Korean manufacturer's users for free.

A new previewer in the app supports more than 100 file types so you can see exactly what you're dealing with without having to guess at extensions or (worse) open the file to find out. You get page thumbnails, grid views, and the ability to search text inside documents themselves — all from the Box app. There's also a new gallery tool to quickly and easily let you preview images stored on Box.

And if you're using Box's OneCloud suite, you get a built-in gallery as well, a new business messaging client called Hall, Docs to Go integration, and much more that'll help the office types.

And for those using a "G Series" smartphone or tablet from LG, you'll get 50 free gigabytes of online storage. (See the fine print on that here.)
