Boxie makes Dropbox look good (pictures)

Boxie looks and feels like an app that belongs on iOS 7, and with added features, it gives Dropbox a run for its money.

Sharing aplenty

As you can see, there's a long list of options to share files and even folders. You can easily share with anyone, or just with fellow Boxie users.

Navigation

The gestures provide convenient methods for access to extra management options, but the app is full of other options, such as long-pressing on the back arrow to view folder hierarchy.

Gestures

Swiping in either direction over a file or folder will present you with options to share, rename, bookmark, download for offline use, or delete the file, and more.

Power Pack

A heavy Dropbox user will find the features included in the $2.99 Power Pack well worth the investment. Push notifications of file changes, revision, and restoration of deleted items are worth the price alone.
