Has Anyone Tried Box.net?

Google Docs and Zoho seem to be getting all of the press for online document creation and collaboration. I recently discovered an additional service Box.net. Box.net allows you to upload files and store them on their server. Additionally, you can edit these documents online as well as share them with anyone you wish.

Box.net is primarly a online storage, access, and collaboration, service. As a consequence, it uses Zoho to edit documents and Picnik to edit pictures.

Box.net offers four different plans, including a free plan with 1GB of storage as well as a paid plan at $19.95 a month for 15GB of storage.

A cool feature that I like about the service is that you can access it from a web enabled cell phone.

I have just signed up for the service and haven’t had a chance to really try it out yet. I would be curious to hear from anyone who has experience with the service.

  1. Have used it for over a year (free version.) Has been reliable, easy to use, altho did have collaboration problem with someone, but they were using an older computer so I credit the problem to that.

  2. Hello there – this is Sean from Box.net. First of all thanks for the post! I’m glad it’s working out for you. As you said, Box works great with Zoho for viewing and editing productivity documents, including .docx files and editing PowerPoint presentations right inside the browser.

    With our OpenBox platform, Box users can use a ton of great web services with all their files on Box.net. When you log into your Box account you can see all the available services under the “Services” tab – make sure to click on the “See All Services” button – there’s over 20 to choose from at the latest count. And there’s more to come…

    Ro, you mentioned a collaboration issue with a user. Did you try contacting Support@Box.net? If you’ve noticed any other issues, please let us know. We’d like to help!
