When the Touch ID fingerprint sensor first came out with the iPhone 5s it was really limited in function. Third party applications had no access to it so users could only perform functions that Apple allowed them to. That changed with iOS 8.0 which finally opened up the sensor to developers. We have been seeing apps get updated with support for Touch ID and the latest to join that list is Box, a popular cloud storage service.

A new update for the Box iOS application has been rolled out today. It adds support for the Touch ID fingerprint sensor so users no longer have to use the PIN in order to unlock their documents. They can simply use the fingerprint set up with Touch ID to gain access.

Box’s updated iOS application also brings a couple of small improvements apart from adding support for Touch ID. Users can now place content from the Box in the Notification Center for quicker access.

Improvements have also been made to the web experience of Box. User interface has been simplified and the “Favorites” feature has been added to the web as well, which brings feature parity with mobile apps. The way notifications are displayed has been improved too.

The updated Box application can now be downloaded for free on iPhone and iPad through the iTunes App Store.
