Box vs iCloud: What are the differences?

Developers describe Box as "Build Innovative Applications on Box". The Box API gives you access to the content management features you see in our web app and lets you extend them for use in your own app. It strives to be RESTful and is organized around the main resources you’re familiar with from the Box web interface. On the other hand, iCloud is detailed as "*A cloud storage and cloud computing service *". Sign in to iCloud to access your photos, videos, documents, notes, contacts, and more. Use your Apple ID or create a new account to start using Apple services.

Box can be classified as a tool in the "File Storage" category, while iCloud is grouped under "Cloud Storage".
