Hot on the heels of their announcement of a 50GB gift to anyone who downloaded their iOS app Download The New Box iOS App Within 30 Days & Get 50GB Of Free Storage Download The New Box iOS App Within 30 Days & Get 50GB Of Free Storage Cloud storage is big business these days and Box is aiming to turn the heat up on rivals such as Dropbox and Google Drive by offering a huge 50GB of free storage to anyone who... Read More , Box has now announced a new service called Box Notes. Box Notes enables you to write notes and anything that comes to mind, and have it saved directly into your Box cloud storage account, with that newly minted 50GB to help you keep it.

In a service rather similar to Google Docs, Box Notes allows you to open up a blank note and begin typing whatever is on your mind. It will then be synced across your computers, smartphones, and tablets. A team can also collaborate on a document at the same time, making edits, and leaving notes for one another on the right-hand side of the screen.

But one very nice feature is that in your note, you can embed images, video, and rich media files into the document as well.

The service is cross-platform, so Notes will be available for your note-taking desires on mobile platforms as well. Right now though, it seems that the service is not ready to be opened up to the general public. You have to click on the Notes link (at the bottom of this article) and enter your address to be added to the list for Beta invites.


No doubt the new Box Notes will irritate Evernote, who is generally considered to be the leader in cloud storage note-taking apps. To date, you cannot embed YouTube videos into an Evernote note, so for the time being, Box has the upper hand. Let the battle commence.

    Search on Evernote is horrible (a note with the search term in the title does not come up before a note with the term buried in the text). Also, I spent a ton of time building a set of notes with a lot of hyperlinks, many of which have broken spontaneously.

    I'm currently paying for both Evernote and Dropbox but I'd much rather drop them both if Box can get Notes right.

    I dont think Box will search through your documents to harvest data to sell to advertisers like nasty google. Box notes looks like it could be a very good addition to the Box service i will use the service as soon as it leaves beta and is available to the public, the ability to embed images, files ect looks very promising
