editor's review





Cloud storage solutions are extremely popular because you can use them to sync files between multiple devices without too much hustle. Box Sync is a small Mac OS X app designed to help you sync content between your gadgets and the cloud servers.

Right off the bat, you must register for a account: the free subscriptions are limited to 10GB storage space, 10GB bandwidth, and the maximum file size is 250MB. Of course, you can opt for the business or enterprise plans to raise these limitations.

Minimalist cloud synchronization solution

Like many other applications that deal with syncing data to the cloud, Box Sync creates a folder on your disk: the contents of that directory will be in sync with your account at all times. To access this folder, you can use the unobtrusive Box Sync status bar menu.

The same area allows you to visualize the synchronization status, to pause the process if necessary, or to access the Box Sync Preferences window. The application comes with very few customization options: all you can do is pause the service or switch to another account.

Personalize your experience via the web interface

Fortunately, you have the opportunity to browse the contents of your account via your browser, and the web interface provides support for selective sync, allows you to add tags to a file, provides details about the file properties, and offers you the opportunity to visualize the version history (some of these features are available only after you upgrade your plan).

In addition, you can use the storage space to quickly share files with your friends: through the file contextual menu, you can choose to extract the public URL, and share it with anyone you like.

Desktop synchronization tool for the cloud service

The Box Sync application is designed to help users to both sync content between their devices, and backup the data online. The utility is extremely easy to set up and should not raise any problems even to most inexperienced users.
