If you're a fan of cloud storage and have access to an iOS device, here's a good deal for you. Box has just redesigned their app for iPhone and iPad, and to celebrate they're giving users who download it a bump up to 50 GB of online storage space (normally a free account gets 10 GB).
While the offer is only on for a limited time (you have to do the download and sign in to the app by February 15th) the extra storage will be yours indefinitely (and of course accessible from any Box interface, not just the iOS app). The new app works with iOS6 or iOS7; if you have an older version you won't be able to use the new app and so won't get the extra free space.
The deal is good for existing personal (free) accounts or, of course, new accounts.
All you have to do is download the app from iTunes, log in with your existing account or create a new one, confirm your email, and you get the extra space automatically.
If you already had the Box app on your device and it gets upgraded, you'll have to log out and log back in to trigger the upgrade.
You can learn more about the new features of Box at the Box Blog. Me, I'm just greedy for more space!
