10GB free storage for BB10 users with BOX app - How to sync music?

Hi guys and gals,

 

I've just found out there's an app called BOX on my Z10 that gives 10GB of free online storage! Cool!

 

It has some sync options for pics and docs but does anyone know how to sync music?

 

Thanks.

I downloaded the app to my PlayBook and I was awarded 50 gb of free space

5 or 50?

I know the original limit was 5. I'd better try on my PlayBook!

I believe they had the promotion with the iOS app as well

Hello,

 

Box is a cloud collaborative tool, and as far as I know it can sync all kinds of file.

But it does not enable streaming.

There is a competitor to Box, which is called Dropbox, and you also have the Dropbox app on your Z10. It can also sync all types of files including videos & mp3.

 

the Dropbox service allow you to do MP3 streaming (you simply have to get the sharing URL of the MP3), and also video streaming if you have a website.

 

 

So with your Z10, you have two top notch solutions for cloud-based file hosting and sync !

I'll check out drop box too then. Thanks. It sounds good. I wasn't sure about these apps as there wasn't any info with the phone.

those two services are mature now, meaning they have plenty of info on their respective websites. Both for newbies of for advanced users.
You'll have a great experience with both, and with them and the Z10 :smileywink:
