OneCloud launched on iOS in March, but recently launched on the Android platform.
Box VP of platform Chris Yeh said about the Android OneCloud launch, “Android is huge for us. Growing our platform is one of the most important aspects of our company now. In a perfect world we would have launched [Android and iOS] simultaneously, but it was a lot to bite off.”
When OneCloud launched on iOS, they started with 30 application partners, but this time when Box launched on Android, they have 50 app integration partners. Some of the OneCloud Android apps include, Breezy, Docusign Ink, Fetchnotes, Office Suite, Open Office, Manager, and Dolphin Browser. Only 11 of the Android apps in the announcement also have iOS app integration. With that said, this means many of these are new apps for users.
Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box says, “Box OneCloud offers the most complete suite of productivity tools for today’s post-PC enterprise. The way people work is radically changing. With Box, IT departments and the mobile workforce now have a unified platform to securely manage applications and content from any device or location.”
So what is Box OneCloud? The Box app, OneCloud enables mobile users to access and edit their cloud-based files from their smartphones and tablets. OneCloud is a collection of mobile apps that integrate with Box. Viewers can browse, purchase, and download apps from a gallery.
