    Free back up memory
  • Albums

    Shoebox says photos are filed chronologically but I have difficulty finding photos I know were taken during a specific timeline. They also state that you can create albums by clicking on SHARE, but it does not seem to work for me. I find it very frustrating finding photos
  • Loved it!

    I was upset timeline was not loading. Customer service rep responded with in an hour to let me know there was an error on their end and it’s being resolved. Reassured me all my pictures/videos are safely stored. Great app. Happy user since 2015.
  • Great for free 75% res storage....

    By A guy who hates crap apps
    That’s about it. I’ve had the paid version for a couple of years now. I also have google photos and amazon prime photos. Amazon prime photos obviously came with my Prime membership so I can’t speak to the free nature of it but the Prime does just as much if not more than Shoebox. And much more smooth. The real winner is Google Photos. For reference, I am an Apple user and fanboy. So liking google isn’t always my first instinct. Google photos does so much more than shoebox in free mode. Much faster and much more simple. More tools to get rid of duplicates and organize. And they are always stored at full res even free. Vids also. And you can store much larger vid sizes....even in the free version. All the features are ready to go out of the box so what you pay for with google is just more space. With shoebox it’s a slow clunky experience. Constantly waiting to load thumbnails. Even on home WiFi with 650MB download speed. It’s an irritating joke. Sometimes it’ll just hang and stop leaving just blank thumbnails. I have to close and reopen the app. Happens quite a bit actually. As far as features’s a pretty mediocre offering. With the paid version all you get is to store you photos at the original res. Yay. Thanks? I would much rather prefer an app that is loaded with features free out of the box and lets you store your photos FULL RES with a storage limit for the free service. And then just pay for more storage. You don’t have to take my review at face value. Go head and try both Google Photos and Shoebox for yourself. You’ll really start noticing the huge differences when you have several thousands of pictures and vids. Shoebox just becomes a chore you kinda wish you had another app for just to make it easier lol.
  • Not loading my pictures

  • Deleted this app years ago, but...

    By Nirvana129
    About 6 years ago I downloaded this app along with a number of other photo apps. I don’t really even remember why I deleted it pretty quickly, but ever since then I randomly get an email titled “This day in history“ from Shoebox containing pictures from my photo library. At first it was a bit annoying since the pictures were recent, but it wasn’t that often so I never opted out. I’m glad I didn’t because now, 5+ years later I get emails with old pictures of my 5 year old daughter (the pictures of her as a baby are way more numerous than they are now, I guess the newness wore off, I’m kidding, she’s my world!) and I usually text a copy to my wife who inevitably sends back an “awww” Anyway, I love this app for that. So, I give an app I haven’t used, or even had, for 5+ years, 5 stars! Thanks for the memories Shoebox!!!
  • I love it how it keeps all my pictures..
