50 GB Free on All LG Devices (and New Android Features)

By

We want to make it incredibly easy for you to share, manage and access important content from absolutely anywhere. And to ensure that storage limitations never get in the way of your sharing, we’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with LG to offer free 50GB Box Personal accounts on all LG phones and tablets in the U.S. running Android OS 2.1 and above (with display resolution of 320×480 or higher).

This announcement comes at an exciting time: Android continues to gain massive traction in the marketplace, with Gartner reporting that 52.5% of smartphone sales in Q3 2011 were Android devices. That’s more than double the same quarter of 2010.

Want to claim your Box 50GB? Just log into Box for Android on your device before December 31, 2012. If you don’t have a Box account yet, be sure to download the app on your LG Android phone or tablet. You’ll have 50GB of free, secure file storage and sharing for the life of your account.

And to help you work smarter from the road with all that extra space, we’ve also released a new version of Box for Android that includes several highly requested features. First, we added the ability to download files from Box to your device. This feature is important for sales reps and project managers that need access to key documents from the road.

In addition, we added offline mode, which lets you access those downloaded files from your Box account even when you’re not connected to the Internet. This makes it possible to stay productive when you don’t have a connection, whether you’re in Box or other Android apps like Astro or Quickoffice.

It’s now easier to get files, videos and photos into your Box account with the new bulk upload capability – a big time saver when you’re backing up a lot of content from your phone or tablet. To round it all out, there’s an updated UI, so you’ll notice the app is easier to navigate for faster access to your files.

Download Box for Android now in the Android Market to get your free 50GB if you’re on an LG device. Help others claim their free 50GBs too by tweeting this post and using #Box50GB!

P.S. Don’t have an LG Device? Check out this post to learn more about our current promotions and what we have planned for the future.

      You need to download “new” box apps from android market and login from new apps.

    I read on the xda lg forum I visit that along with the 50GB of storage, the upload limitation was increased to 1 GB. I read somewhere here that its 100 MB. Am I wrong or am I missing something.

    • Anonymous

      Hello,

      The current upload limit is 100mb.

      Best,

      Mark

    At first I was disappointed I couldn’t get free 50 GBs because I don’t own an iOS device, then I saw the LG Android promotion! Excellent! Thanks Box!

    • Mark Saldana

      Glad you like it!

  • Isaackwan

    Would it be increased to 100GB if I’d previously activated my account with an iOS device>

    • Mark Saldana

      Hi Isaackwan,

      Users are only allowed to take advantage of one promotion at a time. Apologies for any inconvenience.

    I have an iPhone, but I missed the 50 days for iOS (I just know about it today). I also have Samsung Galaxy Tab, and HTC Desire HD. I agree with JP Alves below. Please offer the 50 GB lifetime to all Android users.. TQ

  • http://www.facebook.com/zulkef Zulkef Abdul

    Is there any way I could still get the 50GB promo for iOS? TQ

  • Pushan

  • Khfaiz

    Hi, I’m using htc wildfire 2.2 & found out that this app is not available in the Market. Please clarify whether Box app does not support this device. Thanks!

  • Adieppa

    I have been an Box.net fan for years now and I love using it and have share it with several collegues. I have a Samsung Galaxy that is hard to switch for a new LG due to a contract restrictions but I will appeal to the Box Team to come with a similar offer for us.
    Congrats on the transition and wish Box Team best success in the new year.

    This would be perfect for my new LG Optimus ME P350 (2.2 Froyo), but I live outside the States! :-((((((
    I’ll have to make do with 5Gb…

  • Primus

    Hello I Also got the 50GB for free with my LG P990.
    is it a problem, that I’m coming from Germany. Because it is written for all LG Phones in the U.S. ???

    Thanks

    David

  • Albert Dominguez

    Just got this app, and got my 50gb with my LG Thriill 4G thanks so much Box&LG

  • Scott

    I think you should partner up for the 50GB free for the Nexus 7!

  • scottintheway

    Any love for Canadians?

  • Dan

    Figures my nexus 4 probably wont get here before the deadline that kinda sucks hopefully LG renews whatever deal they had for this year

  • Edward

    Here’s to hoping they renew the promotion after 12/31/12… A question, though: can I stream an entire video from Box on Android, regardless of video length, or do I need to download to device to play the whole thing? Another thing that dropbox has yet to have. 15min playback… Pfff.
