Good news for fans of Box.net. The cloud-based service has added support for video out and AirPrint to its iPad app. Version 2.4, released today, lets users print any file to an AirPrint-capable printer and project documents to a projector or TV.
To project a document, just connect the iPad to a projector, LCD display or TV with Apple's Dock Connector to VGA Adapter and pull up the Box.net document you'd like to display.
Additionally, Box.net for iPad version 2.4 offers security lock and auto log-out. You can protect your stored files with a four-digit passcode and set the app to log out completely when closed (Mint's iPhone app features a similar log-out feature). Finally, SSO offers single sign-on for those using Google or PingFederate to access their Box.net accounts, or corporate users with LDAP/Active Directory configurations. Again, security is the concern here.
It's a solid update that Box.net fans will enjoy. Box.net for iPad is free and universal. You can see our past coverage of Box's iPad experimentation in the business world here.
