The Box cloud storage app has received a significant shot of new features today, the most notable being mobile support for Box Notes. Now users don't need to head over to a computer and fire up a web browser to create, view, or edit those portable documents. The editor can handle basic formatting, bullet lists, and the essentials. You also now have the power to make checklists both on the web or within the app.


Users who fire up the new version of the app will see that their 25 most recently opened files are now presented in a single list for easy access. This should cut down on the amount of time spent searching for the same files over and over again.


These features are joined by new options for shared links: in addition to the pre-existing permission level settings, you can now set expiration dates or prevent others from downloading the file from inside the app. The update also adds new languages, enterprise-related changes, and a number of smaller tweaks. Hit up the source links below for the full details.
