The Box.net Android app has quite a bit going for it. For one, being able to share the files is a nice touch. You can do it easily by just viewing the file and then clicking the little arrow on the right side of the file name. Once you do that the share option will come up and you will be able to see a bunch of different bluetooth and mail accounts. You can send the link to the file through email and then your friends and family can open it up and see what you’ve sent to them. The only problem is that the links are not password protected so you will want to be careful the kinds of things you are sending links to. On the other hand, viewing the files sent to you can be a bit of a pain. Most of the files that are sent are directed to other sorts of programs and the office documents come up in preview form. The web version of this app works perfectly but it looks like these bugs weren’t figured out for the Android app. Also, the app has some functionality issues and you can’t decided whether to download files or actual folders.
This app has been given a rating of 3 out of 5 stars by Android app users that have tried it out and used it quite a bit. The other nice thing about the app is that it is completely free to download onto your mobile phone.
