iPhone Users: On-the-go Editing with Documents To Go


The boundaries of today’s organizations have expanded beyond the office walls – we collaborate with colleagues, partners, vendors and customers, and we need to be able to do this whether we’re in the office, or workshifting from home or or on-the-go. A few months ago, we released a new version of the Box iPhone app, making it easy to exchange ideas and share feedback by posting comments around any Box file or folder. But today’s mobile warriors also want to edit files anytime, from anywhere, which is why we’re excited to share that we’ve partnered with Documents To Go to bring Box users file editing and creation on the iPhone.

With the Documents To Go iPhone app, users can access their entire Box folder tree and and edit files including Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations. Saving files back to Box is seamless – a revised file is sent back to Box as a new version. Users can also create files with Documents To Go and then save them to the appropriate Box folder, making anytime, anywhere productivity a reality. Connecting to your Box content from Documents To go is easy – you can find Box listed under “Cloud Files.”

As the workforce becomes increasingly mobile, we’re seeing businesses of all sizes embrace workshifting and the cloud technologies that make it possible. Our integration with Documents To Go is an exciting example of how mobile applications can enhance productivity in our businesses, even when workers are outside the office walls. Take the Documents To Go app for a spin by downloading it from the App Store, and let us know what you think!

    The MOST annoying thing about Docs2Go however is its insistence on turning docs READ-ONLY when it finds something that it doesn’t understand. Since its understanding is so limited, this happens a LOT. This isn’t really very acceptable and it isn’t necessary as Apple have shown.

    I find that the spreadsheet is not all that useful – Apple Numbers is MUCH better. However, for word processing, Docs2Go is far better than Apple’s Pages.
