First Hands On with Boxcryptor for Windows Phone

| |
If you remember, few days ago we reported that Boxcryptor is searching for Beta Testers to try the app for Windows Phone. The app is currently in private beta so you can't get it from the store directly. I got that app from Boxcryptor and after using it, I want to share my first impression for the beta app.
Not familiar with Boxcryptor? Actually, Boxcryptor is a software optimized for cloud based services. It provides extra protection to your files stored on the cloud storage. It supports almost all the cloud service providers such as OneDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox. With Boxcryptor your files go protected to your cloud provider and you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your information cannot fall into the wrong hands. To protect your files, Boxcryptor uses the AES-256 and RSA encryption algorithms.
The layout is simple. You need to sign in or create account for the first time. After login, you need to select services. Here, I encountered a problem. In the Beta app we can only sign in to one service at a time. I hope the public version sorts out this and we can sign in into more than one service at a time. But rest is just like a normal cloud storage app. We get options to browse our folders and files. We can create a new folder, upload files and sort them. One thing to note is, though it is still in beta and in the initial stage but I didn't faced any bug or any crash. The app works very smoothly and is well integrated. Again there is no option available to remove the cloud storage. You have to uninstall and install it again to do so. You can check the screenshots of the app below.

So, this was the first look at the beta app. I am testing it more, so if you have any particular question then mention them in the comments section. I will try to reply them. If you want to join the beta app, then you can Sign In Here. We will be keeping a close eye on this app and let you know new improvements. Till then, stay tuned.
