Android - How do I edit files? 

Box for Android uses our 3rd party OneCloud apps to edit files. To edit a file, select the “Open” button to get a list of apps you can edit from. We offer some suggested apps, otherwise you can select “view other apps for this file type" and it will allow you to open the file with any compatible application on your device. Once you edit the file, you can seamlessly save the file back to Box by using the save or back button. If you aren’t able to open the file it means that you currently don’t have a compatible app on your device. 


Most of our OneCloud applications also have direct Box integration built into the app, so you can open, edit, and save files without leaving the app.
