Box Offering Free 50GB Account For Android Users

From now until March 23rd you can get a FREE 50GB account on Box by simply downloading and signing in to the Box Android app. That type of space would normally cost you $19.99 a month on the cloud storage service. And this 50GB account is yours for life, no strings attached.


This offer is a 45GB increase in the amount of space for a free Box account. With an offer like this, why would anyone use other services, like Dropbox? Well, keep in mind that Box does not offer a free desktop sync client like Dropbox does. Box’s desktop client is only available to professional users who pay $15/month. Also, with a free account, Box only allows file sizes up to 25MB. To increase to a 1GB file size limit costs $10/month.

Still, we can’t complain about a free 50GB! Plus, with Box’s ability to send files to other services such as Gmail, Microsoft Office, and Google Docs, not having a desktop sync client becomes slightly less of a problem.

So if you need some cloud lovin’, download the app from the Android Market link or QR code below!
