The Android app supports Android 2.0 and up and is designed to let you access files stored on Box.net, upload new files, and share links from your phone. The Box.net app doesn’t include its own media viewers, instead relying on your phone’s default apps.When you tried to open an image, it downloaded the image preview and tried to open it in the Gallery App, which resulted in a Force Close error. Repeatedly. I couldn’t get a single JPG or GIF image to open properly.
Similar to Box’s other mobile offerings, the Android app makes it easy for users to access, share and manage their business content on-the-go. You can browse through files and folders; preview files, including documents, media files and Web documents; share Box links to files and folders via email; and upload files stored on your Android device.
