Google and Box partner to make working in the cloud more powerful

Today, Google took to its Work blog to announce the new partnership between Google Apps for Work and Box. The latter will now integrate with Docs and Springboard for further efficiency in business practices. Box will also serve as a third-party repository for Docs, Sheets, and Slides. The cool thing about that is users will be able to create new files and edit collaboratively within Box itself.

Google also announced that it is working to integrate its Springboard enterprise search tool with Box. Through this, users can find the information or files they need regardless of where that all may be hosted — whether that is in Gmail, Drive, Docs, or Box.

Box for Android upgraded 4.0 with a shiny new user interface

Box, the cloud storage service that doesn't start with "Drop," is still around and serving its users. They haven't been making much of a splash lately, though - the last major update to the Android app was way back in February of last year. But users are in for a treat: yesterday's update added a brand new interface. It's been in the works for a while (a beta version popped up over on APK Mirror in June), and the results are appealing. Check out the differences:

When it comes to cloud storage, Google Drive and Dropbox get most of the attention, but Box offers many of the same features, and even has a few tricks the other services don't. Today's update to the Box app makes a few tweaks, and you can still get a bunch of free storage space to try if out.

PSA: OEM Unlock On The Nexus 6 And 9 Requires Checking A Box In Developer Options

Fastboot oem unlock is a command many Nexus owners know by heart. The command, which unlocks a Nexus device's bootloader, takes a special consideration in Android 5.0 Lollipop, though. The command will fail unless a certain box is checked in the device's "Developer Options" menu. This is a minor change, but one that isn't immediately obvious to the user.

On my Nexus 6 review unit, the option was already checked after I opened Developer Options, but it appears that may not always be the case, as one tipster indicated the option on the Nexus 9 had to be checked manually.

As a quick reminder, the Developer Options menu is unlocked by tapping your device's build until the on-screen countdown completes.

Box 3.5 Update Lets Users Mark Favorites, Manage Collaborators, and More

Box is a cloud storage provider that is challenging for the average consumer to get excited about. That's because while competitors chased around general users, Box kept its sights focused primarily on the enterprise market. Yet you don't have to be a business client to take advantage of the latest update, as the service is available for free to consumers as well.

Version 3.5 of Box brings in the ability to mark files and folders as favorites. This will make them reachable through an easily accessible page in the sidebar. This is one of those consumer-friendly features that Dropbox, Google Drive, and others implemented ages ago.

Between Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and Dropbox, the question is clear - do you want to store your files on a drive or in a box?

Quick Look: Official Folio Case For The 2013 Nexus 7 - A Decent Case At A High Price

Amid the flurry of new devices quietly launched recently, Google released a new Nexus accessory - a folio case for the Nexus 7 (2013). Despite my varied experiences with Nexus accessories, I'm always eager to see what Google thinks will work best with their devices. I'm particularly interested in tablet accessories. Tablets are meant to be super portable and usable anywhere, so making an accessory that retains the appeal of the device's form factor while also adding some utility is an interesting challenge.

Google's latest answer to this challenge for the Nexus 7 (2013) is the folio case - essentially a bumper with a folding lid.

Box Gets Updated With Android 4.4 Support, Integrates KitKat's New Storage Access Framework

Android 4.4 introduces a new interface for accessing files from within apps. Traditionally, trying to upload a file - say, to a social network - created a popup asking which source to pull it from. Now apps will open a sidebar navigation menu that lists all the available options, and Box has already rolled out an update adding support for it.

By default, the new storage access framework only shows local files and Google Drive, but any app that has added support will also appear. This will take no effort on the user's end. If you have the latest version of Box installed, it will appear as an option.
