Box Update Adds Box Notes, Usability Improvements, and More

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Box, the cross-platform cloud storage solution tool, has received an update that brings the Box Notes feature to iOS devices. The feature allows for collaboration and even concurrent editing.

From the blogpost:

At its core, Box Notes is about making it easy to work with others. It promotes the sharing of information and collaboration. Live, concurrent editing lets everyone read and make changes instantly together. This is great for meetings – even when some participants aren’t in the office. And with today’s global workforce, not everyone is online and working at the same time – Box Notes is great for those situations too. Notes are automatically available to collaborators of the folder, so there’s no need to share each individual note with the people who need it.

The update also has usability fixes and improved compatibility with iWork files. Box is available for free on the App Store.

The game will also feature the new levels, enemies, and features added since the launch of the free-to-play version.

This change is being made after players commented to the developers that the free-to-play model did not feel right.

As a result, this new premium version is now set to become available to iOS players as well.

The new version of Big Action Mega Fight! is available on the App Store for $1.99, with the price set to increase to $2.99 after a week.

Alone in the Dark Updated While Nobody was Looking, and the Fixed Controls Make a Big Difference

Posted by on June 20th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It seems as though Atari managed to sneak an update to Alone in the Dark onto the App Store while nobody was looking. Perhaps under the cover of… darkness?

The new update addresses my (and everyone’s, really) biggest complaint about the game: the controls. The interface has been tweaked to the point that it’s actually possible to play the game properly, make progress, and even (dare I say it?) have fun! Fun in a nostalgic sort of way, of course. It’s still somewhat awkward and clunky to play, certainly, but now it’s due to the game being so old instead of a totally borked control scheme. In fact, it makes so much of a difference that we’ve even updated our review!

The update to Alone in the Dark is live now, and the game will set you back $0.99 if you don’t already own it.
