  1. @Yuga…say i download Box for my iPad, and granted that i was awarded the free 50GB. If i use the same box login for my box app on my Android Device, you think the 50GB will be carried over? I mean, i’ll be able to use the 50GB for both my iOS and Android devices (sharing the same account)??

    • If it’s the same account, I believe it will carry over.

    • @yuga and mike,

      Good suggestion… I now have 50GB for my IOS and Android =)

    • actually I obtain my 50GB box way back from Sony Ericsson xperia promo last 2011 or early 2012. I’ve installed box then on my other Android devices and now on my iPhone and still have the same 50GB account.

  2. Signed up for new account pero 10Gig lang lumalabas dun sa web upon confirmation. Di ko rin makita sa ipad yung current storage ko. Thanks for sharing. Baka andyan lang yun.
