Box updates UI with new design and widget

MAIN

When it comes to cloud storage one of my favourite apps is BOX, which I use on a daily basis. Today Box have updated their design and added a new widget. The app works perfectly well but the UI was becoming dated and lost its shine, Like your car, no matter how much you polish it you can’t get that showroom shine it had when you bought it, all those years ago. First and most noticeable is a visual refresh to the home screen of the app, which now has an updated slide-in left panel for navigation between folders and access to accounts and settings.

Now that settings are found in that drawer, hitting the overflow menu button gives options to refresh or sort your files, which now offers several more options including by folder name, date and size. Also helping usability is a new thumbnail view with larger previews of files.

Box Widget

Those looking for a more feature-filled Box widget now have that option as well, with a full resizeable version that shows  a scrollable list of file updates for your account and gives options to refresh and add new files right from the widget. This is overall a considerable update, and you can grab your download of the latest version at the Play Store link below.
