Is It Any Good?

Users may not immediately realize that accessing Box solely through a mobile device limits its features -- it truly shines as a web-based tool. While short tutorials and highlighted functions guide them through the use of the app, they don't offer a lot of help once users get started. As a result, they miss many of the features Box has to offer. However, users who learn to access Box both through a computer and through their mobile devices will truly benefit from all of its features, including the ability to share documents and leave comments on them and the ability to label documents with tags to make it easier to keep them organized.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
