Box Notes is getting its own standalone web app and a new desktop app for Windows and Mac. It’s a new turn for the product, which allows users to collaboratively edit documents in real time.
Notes gives users a workspace for jotting down ideas and sharing them with others. Those notes can include rich text elements like embedded images, tasks and tables, in addition to plain text.
The service is designed to give users a shared workspace in the cloud for discussing ideas and working on them with other users. Making Notes a standalone app could help it appeal to a broader audience and increase its usage.
