I need an app that gives me options. I take random pictures of things I see to send people and screenshots to remember things when shopping. Pictures I don’t want saved, pictures I don’t want automatically uploaded to the app. I have iCloud for that. Is there an option to select the pictures I want to upload to the app rather than having to go thru and delete 300 pictures every week.

Saved my life!
by @tequilasunrlse on 2019/04/17 17:45
I have had this app for years but today it truly saved my sanity. Due to technical issues, my iPhone ended up getting reset to factory setting. So I lost everything because I don’t pay for the iCloud backup through apple. Then I remembered I had shoebox and thank god it saved over 8,000 of my photos. I’m so grateful for this app!!!!
I don’t like it
by Shgxxgjbvcf on 2019/04/13 15:40
I want to stop paying for this.
Post app update, still trash
by canary1234 on 2019/04/13 05:41
I have the latest update for the phone as well as the update for the app and I am still having to refresh the app after a couple of scrolls to see pics from years ago.. it takes Forever to load the pics.
Don't
by goldi1002 on 2019/04/09 22:58
Had I known i wouldve lost videos of my son's birth and videos when he was a baby, Id never download this app. Save your response shoebox I've already contacted your support. "Unfortunately, without an original version, it is impossible to determine the exact root cause of the video with sound but no picture issue you are seeing from before." Funny, they worked when I transferred from Android to my first iPhone but all of a sudden no picture when I got my new iPhone.
Downloading
by binfocus on 2019/04/09 03:12
I love this app. However, in short, I have been trying for over 24 hours for shoebox to finish downloading 49 photos, of which 19 are still waiting! Google photos as one example downloads within a few minutes. Shoebox has always been the tortoise. If they don't soon rectify this I'm going to get rid of them. It's very annoying! 4/8/19 update: great app works really well now. One of my favorite apps. Shoebox has come a long ways since my first review. They really put a lot of effort into this app and it shows! Thanks shoe box!
Ewwwww

by Dom Osborne on 2019/04/03 16:38
Lots of people with iPhones will experience “storage full”. Not me, but my girlfriend all the time. It can be hard to get the right picture the first time, so multiple pictures need to be taken. Those just fill up your phone and you may not even want them. Shoebox makes it convenient to be able to delete photos off your phone knowing that they are backed up.
A surprise
by Creegsbear on 2019/03/31 20:25
Surprises are sometimes good and other times not so good. This is like that. Sometimes you see things/people that you want to see and sometimes you see things/people that you don’t. Such is life!
The best !
by karmesha12 on 2019/03/30 20:21
Just want to say this app is amazing! My iPhone recently cut off on me and never turned back on so when I went to get my new phone I realized I didn’t back up my photos in iCloud but my shoebox account backed up all my photos like wow 😭❤️ Thanks a bunch !
UGH !!
by Tweety Bird :) on 2019/03/28 03:33
I rlly like this app, but I hate hoe if I import things from sc into my camera roll, and then put it on shoebox, it saves it as that date and not the actual date :( BTW, I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED 12-16 OF MY PHOTOS AND IDK HOW TO RESTORE THEM !!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME😭
I have this on everything
by broadwayLOVER360 on 2019/03/27 12:15
I have this on my computer, iPad, and cellphone. I love that I don’t need to do anything except download the app and sign in and it automatically backs up every picture, with my first child I had a computer crash and I lost all of his first few months of pictures except for the ones that were on Facebook. Granted there is probably about 1000 pictures I really didn’t need but I still would’ve liked, now that I’ve found this all my pictures of my second are completely saved and also I don’t need to pay for it which is fantastic.

My pictures are gone!!!
by @TheHelenaMarie4 on 2019/03/10 02:10
I’ve used this app for 5 or 6 years, and never had an issue. Suddenly ALL my pictures before 2018 are gone!! I have loved this app for so long, and now it’s acting up. It’s so disappointing. Those pictures were special to me. Now they’re gone.
Shoebox is great for picture organizing, saving.
by AMG0519 on 2019/03/04 18:21
I love that this app not only saves photos for you, it organizes them too. It’s good to know my photos are kept safe and I enjoy seeing the “on this day” photo memory from each day. Highly recommend if you have thousands of photos that you need to store.
This app is legitimate
by griv9989 on 2019/03/04 16:43
You can actually save all your pictures and access them easily with this app.
Great

Saved my memories
by crazylittl3liza on 2019/02/14 18:14
When Microsoft killed my email after telling me to create a new one & my main one would NOT be affected (cyber-stalker) along with it went my 1tb one drive with my nearly 21yr olds entire life’s worth of photos, my deceased beloved show horse who was that 1 special horse, if you’ve ever been around horses you’d understand you get that 1 that never leaves your heart they rise above everything else in your memories you sacrificed everything for them, spent every waking second with them well he was it. In one second every single photo I had was gone I literally started crying so hard I vomited but after google photos deleted my photos because of the unlimited photo size continuously resetting. Out of the blue Shoebox saved the day with my photos going back to 2002!!! Thank You Shoebox!!!
Thank you

It’s really amazing. It keeps all your photos. If you change your phone or lost your phone don’t worry, by entering your email you may access your backed up your photos.
Love it!
by 8Adriana80 on 2019/02/04 16:47
I love that I can save all my pictures in one app and that every once in a while it sends reminders of what it was that I was doing that day yrs. before. I started using this app about 5yrs. So, I sure have lots of memories saved and can always log to my computer and see them all. I definitely recommend it.

Access to photos?
by lost in the middle on 2019/01/27 03:29
It errors out constantly with: must grant access to photos... Settings-shoebox-photos. Thing is, path is right, function -doesn’t exist.... others experiencing this glitch? Do like the concept of this app. But; not its execution..
Great way to save my photos

Disappearing Timeline
by cast1lle on 2019/01/22 01:51
I deleted a few hundreds photos from my Shoebox, but now none of my photos are accessible. The timeline is blank. I can tap on Month and see the timeline, but if I tap on anything—or if I go back to Year—all the photos disappear. Under Settings it shows that I have 0 photos and 0 albums. I should have about 800 photos. I downloaded the Mac OS desktop app and it won’t load. It just gets stuck in Uploading Photos. Update: It happened again! This is the second time I’ve lost at least half my photos.

Help!
by nieto101 on 2018/12/30 22:59
I’ve been using this app since December 2015. I love this app I’ve had a lot of new phones since and it manages to save all my photos! I just have a question, is there any way I can save the photo and have the original date of when the photo was taken on my camera roll? I save photos on my camera roll sometimes, I saved a photo recently to my camera roll and it showed the exact date of when I took the picture and I really like that, but that was the only time it did that. I’ve saved photos to my phone occasionally and the original date only popped up on one photo, I would really like it if all my photos had the original dates on my camera roll. Can you help?

Always syncs EVERYTHING
by torries13 on 2018/12/14 03:49
If it’s possible please add and option to sync only what and when you want. Everytime I redownload this app every single one of my photos syncs. I now have multiple copies of the same photos. Please fix this

Get this app if you have a lot of pics. I do not leave reviews under most circumstances, however, I would be remiss if I don’t give credit where it’s due. Shoebox deserves this credit! I reviewed their website and reviews and found that they are reliable!

Question
by F**kpie on 2018/11/15 16:44
After the pictures are backed into shoebox are you able to delete them off your phone and still be able to see them?
Concept nice but...
by jddbdbhdbd on 2018/11/12 08:53
I have been using this app for years now and all of a sudden, it takes forever and a day to view old photos. I tried to go back a year ago and all I get are gray boxes and they never show, even on WiFi! Quite irritating to me. It use to be really nice but I don’t know what happened. I even deleted photos.
Shoebox is definitely a fun app.
by madisonPW on 2018/11/11 00:16
I signed up with Shoebox as a way of having a backup for my photos. Well, I got more than I expected. Not only are my photos saved, Shoebox sends me a one-page set of pics from a year ago or even older than that (taken the same day as the current day). It is so fun to see my granddaughter, who is 5, as she looked 2 or 3 years ago. Sometimes they even throw in pics older than that. They send one big pic along with 3 other pics from the same day. I keep a lot of them. You’ll love looking at old pics and you can trust them to take care of what’s precious to you - pics you HAVE to keep.
Thank You

Don’t pay for pro in the Apple store
by Jcarlos95 on 2018/10/30 21:51
Love the app but as always Apple wants to be greedy. Just noticed that on the website you can upgrade your account for only $5 a month yet on Apple it charges $10.... Screw apples greedy antics. Literally charging you double simply because you pay through Apple store. As far as shoe box I give the app a 10/10
It's ok.
by NickiNap85 on 2018/10/24 12:33
I don't like that it automatically downloaded ALL my pictures in my phone. I was hoping that I could select the pics to add to shoebox.

Broke my screen and had to get it fixed when I got it back it was completely locked so I had to reset my phone which has not been backed up in months because 5gb ain’t shiii,, anyways I’ve had this app for that long and it backed up allllll of my photos in the background without ever really draining battery or straining the phone.

Sentimental Photos
by Photomobi on 2018/10/20 10:25
I highly recommend Shoebox. This is absolutely one of my most favorite apps? Why? A few times changing phones or resetting my phone and losing pictures on my device was not a problem. I simply downloaded Shoebox again and logged in, and all of my photos are always there.
Won’t upload photos. Have used for over 5yrs
by Crazy71234 on 2018/10/19 20:03
LOVE this app, do wish that videos could upload over cellular...but then I’m just glad you’ve added videos...I’ve used your device for at least 5yrs, have been PRO subscriber for just over 4yrs. While I wish you had more features such as google photos has, including editing ability in app...for the price, reliability, and quality I can’t complain. One issue I’ve had with my other cloud storages is that they don’t export the exif info including date and location, which leads to not knowing the info when in uploads into cloud storages. I’m so glad this info downloads with shoebox which is one reason I continue to keep shoebox. Not only is it the FIRST cloud storage I’ve used, it’s also inexpensive than others. I like the flat rate of $4.99/1hr of Video uploaded and it’s paid for as you need it. I also like that uploads are unlimited. I currently have 850K+ photos & 15K+ videos uploaded. So for around $60/yr for full resolution photos + $4.99/1hr you add as you need it for videos, it is well worth it about 50% less than other cloud storages annually. I’d rate it 4.5stars. Reason for 1 star rating, out of blue, and a week after my latest iPhone 7+ update. App won’t upload photos. It states to go to settings to provide permission. I’ve looked several places and can’t find to where I can grant permission. App’s last update was 3weeks ago...iPhone update 1week ago...so what gives? One star cause what good is a photo cloud app if you can’t upload photos?
Sensational!

by Emifemily on 2018/10/11 18:07
I am not super tech-savvy. I have kept all my kids’ pictures on my phone for years. I was afraid to delete them, but I didn’t want to have 100 photo albums on Facebook either. The cloud confuses me (again, not tech-savvy) and I have yet to figure it out. Slowly but surely, my phone has run out of storage space. I found Shoebox and it has been incredible! It’s user friendly - even dummies like me can figure it out. It’s easy to understand. It’s so efficient! I’m extremely happy with Shoebox! I recommend it to all of my friends.
Love this app

I would like to be able to edit pics and that has never been addressed over the years. I want to fix pics that for some reason load sideways as well as fix red eye and crop. There isn’t an option on desktop version either. Please fix.
Love this app!

I was introduced to this app by some random girl I was chatting to online. I was complaining that I always lose all my iPhone photos when I get a new phone because I refuse to pay for Apple’s gimmicky “iCloud” service. She recommended I download Shoebox, and app she personally uses to solve the problem of losing photos. I downloaded, seamlessly uploaded all of my photos and videos to Shoebox’s servers, and immediately got out all my old iPhones too upload all my photos from them too! Finally, I can view and download all my old photos on my new iPhone easily! This is great :) I chose to use the secure iCloud password, which is very hard to remember, so I recommend keeping your password somewhere you can remember Incase you break your iPhone and can no longer access your iCloud Keychain to put your difficult to remember password in!
Shoebox is excellent

Great for downloading and saving photos from my Apple devices. Brenda from Shoebox provides great support. Helped me download photos quicker on my Apple devices. Great technical support.
Awesome

I am happy to have a place to store my photos! Thanks for this app. However, I’m not seeing some things in the description such as how to upload several pics at a time. There are many that don’t upload from my iPad, but I don’t know how to manually upload them. I hope I can keep using it for my photos. I do not understand what the difference is between the free and the pro versions. But I got a ton of emails telling me to “choose a plan” or it will stay on the free plan. It said I’d still have unlimited storage for my photos. So I didn’t do anything, because I didn’t mind that they wouldn’t be the absolute best resolution. Then I started getting charged $5 for a subscription. ??? I may keep that if I can still upload my pics, but please tell me who to contact that will actually answer on how to manually upload my photos? I’d really appreciate it.
Saved my memories
by crazylittl3liza on 2019/02/14 18:14
When Microsoft killed my email after telling me to create a new one & my main one would NOT be affected (cyber-stalker) along with it went my 1tb one drive with my nearly 21yr olds entire life’s worth of photos, my deceased beloved show horse who was that 1 special horse, if you’ve ever been around horses you’d understand you get that 1 that never leaves your heart they rise above everything else in your memories you sacrificed everything for them, spent every waking second with them well he was it. In one second every single photo I had was gone I literally started crying so hard I vomited but after google photos deleted my photos because of the unlimited photo size continuously resetting. Out of the blue Shoebox saved the day with my photos going back to 2002!!! Thank You Shoebox!!!

I love that Shoebox keeps all my + over 2,000+ photos safe and brings them to me from my past. As a woman in my mid-70s, I enjoy looking back to see photos of my wonderful past; this is precious to me. The transitions of my life, my family present and past, my loves present and gone, my home and my glorious flower gardens, dogs, cats, chickens, my doves, insects, and oh how I love the Bees. All, this and more kept safe for me until I can get to organizing and categorizing the seasons of my life, which is always on my mind to begin. The program may have a glitch now and then, but I know you’re always working to perfect the app. So, I sincerely appreciate your efforts to make Shoebox a Premier Photo Storage App. Thanks Shoebox! I aorrciate your hard work to keep my memories alive and well. 🤗
Great App...
by Abf<3Stf on 2018/02/28 11:55
but not perfect yet. After getting a new phone, it seems to be downloading a lot more pictures than I have. The total pictures downloaded exceeds the total pictures on my phone. I have yet to look on my desktop to see if any have been doubled, which is what it sounds like it did. I also wish that once pictures are put “in an album”, that they would just move that picture to the album or checkmark them so we know which ones have been moved. Need a better way of organizing. Another con is that it slowly downloads pictures that have been moved to the cloud, even after disabling optimization. So I have a great amount (about 17,000) that have yet to be transferred to Shoebox yet. I still love the app, but just hope these features would be better!
Help!
by nieto101 on 2018/12/30 22:59
I’ve been using this app since December 2015. I love this app I’ve had a lot of new phones since and it manages to save all my photos! I just have a question, is there any way I can save the photo and have the original date of when the photo was taken on my camera roll? I save photos on my camera roll sometimes, I saved a photo recently to my camera roll and it showed the exact date of when I took the picture and I really like that, but that was the only time it did that. I’ve saved photos to my phone occasionally and the original date only popped up on one photo, I would really like it if all my photos had the original dates on my camera roll. Can you help?
Shoebox is definitely a fun app.
by madisonPW on 2018/11/11 00:16
I signed up with Shoebox as a way of having a backup for my photos. Well, I got more than I expected. Not only are my photos saved, Shoebox sends me a one-page set of pics from a year ago or even older than that (taken the same day as the current day). It is so fun to see my granddaughter, who is 5, as she looked 2 or 3 years ago. Sometimes they even throw in pics older than that. They send one big pic along with 3 other pics from the same day. I keep a lot of them. You’ll love looking at old pics and you can trust them to take care of what’s precious to you - pics you HAVE to keep.
Five star worthy..but..
by LuvApL on 2017/12/01 01:07
Pros- I like the fact it comes with free unlimited photo storage, and some limited video storage. This app is always being updated, and offers a desktop download for saving photos on your computer. Photos on the app do not count towards phone storage on iOS devices. Cons-Since the recent update, I now have duplicate photos. The paid version is not worth getting unless it included an option to have unlimited video storage. No way to include photos anywhere except from Facebook. I have been using this app for a long time now, but it shows one year of use.
I have this on everything
by broadwayLOVER360 on 2019/03/27 12:15
I have this on my computer, iPad, and cellphone. I love that I don’t need to do anything except download the app and sign in and it automatically backs up every picture, with my first child I had a computer crash and I lost all of his first few months of pictures except for the ones that were on Facebook. Granted there is probably about 1000 pictures I really didn’t need but I still would’ve liked, now that I’ve found this all my pictures of my second are completely saved and also I don’t need to pay for it which is fantastic.
Simple and fantastic!
by Emifemily on 2018/10/11 18:07
I am not super tech-savvy. I have kept all my kids’ pictures on my phone for years. I was afraid to delete them, but I didn’t want to have 100 photo albums on Facebook either. The cloud confuses me (again, not tech-savvy) and I have yet to figure it out. Slowly but surely, my phone has run out of storage space. I found Shoebox and it has been incredible! It’s user friendly - even dummies like me can figure it out. It’s easy to understand. It’s so efficient! I’m extremely happy with Shoebox! I recommend it to all of my friends.
Excellent Google photo competitor thats been around much longer
by zyme_ on 2017/12/24 20:38
True google copied most everything in this app, but it's still free (with a megapixel max that downscales - but my 5MP camera is under that limit so for many people this might be the perfect backup software). Pros: Retains and if you pay the small fee unlimited saved pics and size unmodified is a better deal then googles unmodified option - and unless you have a new high end camera theres no need to pay anything. Also retains all photo details which is great Cons: Like newer ios versions they removed the geographical (google-maps like) zoomable view with auto grouping nearby photos by zoom amount and proximity. I loved that view mode much more then this town/state/country header groups they both switched to. Extra: - If I could ask for anything it would be server side high-end video HEVC re-encoding (Divx?) be available and commenting for shared photo albums.
Good for Nothing Customer Service
by Dubaz123 on 2017/12/05 00:14
I loooved this app. I joined in 2015 and used it so often. It saved my photos and videos perfectly, I even successfully backed them up onto a hard drive. About 2 months ago- all of my photos disappeared. I tried contacting customer service about 4 different times. At first, Brenda acknowledged my inquiry, but never further assisted me. After 3 other attempts, no one responded or tried to help. Now today by some miracle bringing it up in conversation, I went to show someone the issue I'm having on the app, and all my photos were back. Im so thankful that they are, however i would've loved some decent assistance as there was sensitive material that would have been missing.
Downloading
by binfocus on 2019/04/09 03:12
I love this app. However, in short, I have been trying for over 24 hours for shoebox to finish downloading 49 photos, of which 19 are still waiting! Google photos as one example downloads within a few minutes. Shoebox has always been the tortoise. If they don't soon rectify this I'm going to get rid of them. It's very annoying! 4/8/19 update: great app works really well now. One of my favorite apps. Shoebox has come a long ways since my first review. They really put a lot of effort into this app and it shows! Thanks shoe box!
Saving data and pics!
by onesteadymann on 2017/12/16 17:12
I don’t know about you but I don’t like losing my data when I lose my phone or my iPad. This is a great way to recover your data! I’m not a computer but expert I don’t know much about them at all. But I can use this program. Simply it’s a very simple way you have a place to go get your data again! I discovered the iPhones don’t talk to each other. Or at least I can’t get them to work. So I upload what I wore and then I can go get it with another computer or iPad or whatever!
Love it!
by Dezondra on 2018/09/07 22:52
Love love love this app! It’s getting easier to navigate, which I really appreciate. But my absolute favorite thing about this app (besides unlimited storage for pics) is that when I download a pic back onto my phone it still has great quality. Google photos doesn’t have as great of quality for unlimited storage of pics but shoebox does. I’ve printed them out too and they’re great. I love this app and would be devastated if anything ever happened to it!! Thanks for such a great product!
Love it!
by Regan1607 on 2018/09/11 21:09
Been using this app for over a year now and it’s exactly what I needed. I am paranoid that I will lose my photos and I’m not great about backing up my phone. All of my pictures are backed up automatically in case I don’t have a chance to download them and something happens to my phone. Such a great relief. I also like the daily email with photos from the same day of past years. Fun to look back for a second during the day and keep things in perspective!
It’s good, but there’s two problems.
by Londerson on 2018/08/26 00:55
This app is great, and it shows and keeps all your pictures, but there is two problems. One is that when scrolling through pictures, there is duplicates of the same photos, when there is originally is supposed to be one. Also, it doesn’t keep videos, and if it did, it would be way more helpful. But, this is a good app and I do recommend this app for picture storage.
Best storage app for photos
by ThirdDayJunkie on 2018/02/10 15:58
I am a photo hoarder and I always eat up the memory on my phone with photos. When I got my new phone, the AT&T guy suggested google photos but I didn’t like that app, so I stumbled across this one and I gave it a try. I LOVE this app. I was able to free up most of my memory on my phone, but still have easy access to my photos. They also organize them according to dates and will send you photo memories from previous years.
Photo Cloud Storage with so many great features, a daily memory
by Lisalcolorado on 2018/03/20 18:31
Photo Cloud Storage with so many great features, a daily memory email to remind you of a memory on that specific day, the functionality, practicality and features of this app make it a must. Plus you can share stored photos to social media. It backs up automatically and is a true gem in the land of photo storage apps and cloud storage. Highly Recommend This App!
Helpful
by Dom Osborne on 2019/04/03 16:38
Lots of people with iPhones will experience “storage full”. Not me, but my girlfriend all the time. It can be hard to get the right picture the first time, so multiple pictures need to be taken. Those just fill up your phone and you may not even want them. Shoebox makes it convenient to be able to delete photos off your phone knowing that they are backed up.
Awesome!
by Millennia4036 on 2018/03/23 20:48
I’ve been using shoebox for about two years now, and I can honestly say it’s such a great app. It helps me save some space on my phone. Rather than keeping photos in my camera roll, I sometimes opt for shoebox. It also serves as an extra backup for your photos. I really enjoy this app, and can’t wait to see what else it offers in the future. ☺️ This says a lot because I never write reviews for apps 😂😂😂
Need a better map feature
by Sahil Deschenes on 2018/05/30 07:31
I have been using shoebox for years. And the one thing I would like to see is a reasonable map feature. I would like to see all my pictures on one map that I can zoom and interact with. The same way you can do on the photos app that comes with iPhone. It would be great to travel along the map and see my photos sorted by where they were taken. Love everything else about the app and highly recommend, but have been waiting for a good map update for years!
Great photo storage app
by Rbaseball form on 2018/04/04 15:50
Unlimited photo storage? YES!!!! This is great. I have a lot of photos and it great to have them backed up and easily accessible on my phone as well as my computer. Highly suggest it for those who like to take photos. I also love the daily emails. Sometimes they are stupid since I took a photo of French fries 6 years ago, but most of the time the memories are meaningful and I love the daily reminders.
“Pro” is only viable if your credit card never changes
by AZ Marie on 2018/01/07 02:57
All of my photos were downgraded to low res because my automatic payment failed. My credit card company sends me a new card with a new number practically every 9 months. I get way too many emails to see or deal with this in time, so I miss the short deadline and lose all of my high res backups. I would happily have paid retroactively for the lost weeks even with a penalty if it would have meant keeping my high res photos, but since their business model is to immediately downgrade & delete high res copies, I’m out of luck They have lost a paying customer because of this.
Great backup, no ads, love the memory emails!
by WideSmiler on 2017/10/05 00:24
Great backup solution for all photos. Shoebox won me over with the “this day in history” emails I started getting showing me memories through photos of what I was up to on the same day a few years back. Cool feature. Great app, does just what I want it to, and never interrupts me with ads or notifications. Can’t ask for more than that for a free app.
This app is a life saver
by esmiheart on 2018/01/14 04:03
Mini story(how this app saved my life) My iPhone 5s stopped working and nothing was backed up onto my iCloud. I was scared I had lost all my photos, forget the selfies I had my family photos/videos. i has forgotten I had downloaded this app years prior. I logged into my account on my laptop & boom every single photo/video on my iphone5s was automatically saved onto my app. Thank you shoebox app!!
Thank you
by Dina_tqm on 2018/08/02 01:55
My phone died today and I had no back up. I was told that there was no way to recover the data. As I was standing there and crying at the apple store, I remembered that I had shoebox app downloaded a long time ago. I was so happy to see all of my photos (mostly my kids) on it. I only wish I purchased a pro package, because almost all of my videos were gone:(
Amazing
by I3xit on 2018/05/30 04:39
I only store photos and about a grand total of twenty seconds of video, so I have no need to purchace the vip package, or whatever they call it. They give you unlimited photo storage and a reasonable amount of video storage for free. Not only that, but you can share any photo or group of photos with anyone you would like via web browser link. This is amazing, but could use a few upgrades. This app does not, but should allow you to... • Only upload select photos, not your whole liabrary • Allow you to set a password on specific albums or photos Overall, definetly worth the time, and I would have no problem purchasing the upgraded package, since this company is in no way greedy.
Love my shoebox
by Victoria VO on 2017/11/18 23:18
What’s so great? It automatically updates from your photos. You take the pics within 24 hrs they are in your shoebox. Need it faster. Open app and update. Delete from photos to get more room. Delete all your photos. No worry. They are still in your shoebox till YOU delete from there. Make sure you update shoebox to insure pics are there. Mistakes happen.
Thank you Shoebox!
by joyful user! on 2018/02/23 02:46
My phone was stolen and I was heartbroken to think I have lost all my pictures. So many memories, so many beautiful pictures of family , family, trips... However, my thoughtful daughter had created an account on ICloud for me, and what wasn’t my joy when I was to recover all my pictures. I could hardly believe my eyes! I’m so thankful for you.
SO THANKFUL FOR THIS APP
by Reiko niooo on 2018/10/24 05:39
Broke my screen and had to get it fixed when I got it back it was completely locked so I had to reset my phone which has not been backed up in months because 5gb ain’t shiii,, anyways I’ve had this app for that long and it backed up allllll of my photos in the background without ever really draining battery or straining the phone. Plus unlimited??
I love this app
by 710349957 on 2018/04/19 14:32
It’s so convenient and I’m able to delete the pictures from my camera roll and save storage while still having access to them through this app. It also makes it easier to get them on my computer. The only downside is the video storage is so small but for unlimited pictures I’m cool with it!
Don’t pay for pro in the Apple store
by Jcarlos95 on 2018/10/30 21:51
Love the app but as always Apple wants to be greedy. Just noticed that on the website you can upgrade your account for only $5 a month yet on Apple it charges $10.... Screw apples greedy antics. Literally charging you double simply because you pay through Apple store. As far as shoe box I give the app a 10/10
Saved my life!
by @tequilasunrlse on 2019/04/17 17:45
I have had this app for years but today it truly saved my sanity. Due to technical issues, my iPhone ended up getting reset to factory setting. So I lost everything because I don’t pay for the iCloud backup through apple. Then I remembered I had shoebox and thank god it saved over 8,000 of my photos. I’m so grateful for this app!!!!
Only one downside
by real.ed on 2018/05/15 23:38
I do like shoebox because all my photos download and I can access them from different devices, but the only downside so far, is that you have to pay for video storage after you run out of the video storage, which happened to me. Over all though I would recommend for someone that has a lot of photos but not much storage on their devices.
Good but not great...
by El RuLee on 2017/10/11 12:44
I’m not a really big app guy who has a gazillion apps on my phone so I am not sure if this applies to all photo storage apps, but my main annoyance with this app is the fact that you have to open the app in order for the app to store your photos, going under the tab of “ home “ will it get it done. I wish the app would just automatically store your photos without having to tell it.
Shoebox Cloud Storage-Great !
by Little Mr. on 2017/09/17 21:07
•••I have had the free version of this for almost 2 years and always a free system !! I did run short of Video storage~ so am right now going for the Pro version ! The pics/vids are stored at full resolution, to be printed, resaved to your PC-Android-iPhone Photo gallery // always ready for your use.. Great app ! BTW- I was never plagued w/ nag request to upgrade..Definitely a ++ !
A great way to save photos from multiple devices
by Waco Bob on 2018/01/01 17:24
Love this app! It has helped me save on storage space on my phone & tablet. I can easily access this app anytime and download good versions of my photos whenever I need to share them with family or to temporarily load them back on to my phone to make prints at a photo store.
Great App, Works Seamlessly, Awesome App Support
by Skullbro1980 on 2018/04/28 16:58
Was seamless to open and upload my pictures. Or so I thought, I have just over 160 pictures on my iPad. Shoebox after saying it was finished syncing only uploaded 59. I’m hoping this gets fixed. Edit - The App Support people helped me realize it was a settings problem with iCloud. It wasn’t the Apps fault, to keep Originals may annoy some people though. Still happy with Shoebox. 😊🤘🏻
Sentimental Photos
by Photomobi on 2018/10/20 10:25
I highly recommend Shoebox. This is absolutely one of my most favorite apps? Why? A few times changing phones or resetting my phone and losing pictures on my device was not a problem. I simply downloaded Shoebox again and logged in, and all of my photos are always there.
Love it!
by 8Adriana80 on 2019/02/04 16:47
I love that I can save all my pictures in one app and that every once in a while it sends reminders of what it was that I was doing that day yrs. before. I started using this app about 5yrs. So, I sure have lots of memories saved and can always log to my computer and see them all. I definitely recommend it.
Highly Satisfied, 5-Star Recommendation
by Jordan Leigh P. on 2018/07/25 05:45
This dependable product has proven to be a truly reliable software application as it has allowed me to effortlessly upload high-resolution photos/videos onto its functional platform. Needless to say, this product is effective and efficient. Shoebox has earned a 5/5 stars from this satisfied user!
Disappearing Timeline
by cast1lle on 2019/01/22 01:51
I deleted a few hundreds photos from my Shoebox, but now none of my photos are accessible. The timeline is blank. I can tap on Month and see the timeline, but if I tap on anything—or if I go back to Year—all the photos disappear. Under Settings it shows that I have 0 photos and 0 albums. I should have about 800 photos. I downloaded the Mac OS desktop app and it won’t load. It just gets stuck in Uploading Photos. Update: It happened again! This is the second time I’ve lost at least half my photos.
One thing
by silverjohtofire on 2017/11/15 06:28
Could you guys possibly add something to delete duplicate images..? I’ve had to delete the app multiple times for storage and downloaded it to store more images but it keeps saving the same ones I’ve uploaded before. It would be really useful. Still a great app though
Simply perfect
by Itsmeppl-239 on 2018/05/14 01:54
This app is so underrated. I am so grateful for this app. It freed up space on my iPhone and I didn't have to buy storage from Apple. It's simple to use. I put this app on my iPad and computer so I can access more than just 1,000 photos on all my devices. In fact I can access photos from any computer.
Shoebox is great for picture organizing, saving.
by AMG0519 on 2019/03/04 18:21
I love that this app not only saves photos for you, it organizes them too. It’s good to know my photos are kept safe and I enjoy seeing the “on this day” photo memory from each day. Highly recommend if you have thousands of photos that you need to store.
Shoebox
by tmbutle043 on 2017/10/17 10:56
I have had this app. About 3 years I love being able to save my pictures on this app. freeing up space my phone. Love it! It saves pictures with date it was taken and keeps them in order by dates and by year. Give it a try like I did. Pretty sure you will like it too !
Heidi, Totally Awesome!
by Workin for the $ on 2017/11/26 15:00
I have been using this app for years. I don’t usually rate anyone or anything. Your app is one of the best apps ever! No popups, it is free, no advertising! Everything is easy to find and you ask if I want to see an event or time period that I may want to look at again. Keep up the great work you are doing 🤗
Fun way to generate memories
by Soxhood on 2018/03/17 16:34
This is such a great app. The free photo storage might be the most valuable feature; but, if you opt in for the daily "what happened on this day in history" feature, you'll get a daily email with photos from the past. So much fun and always brings back memories.

I need an app that gives me options. I take random pictures of things I see to send people and screenshots to remember things when shopping. Pictures I don’t want saved, pictures I don’t want automatically uploaded to the app. I have iCloud for that. Is there an option to select the pictures I want to upload to the app rather than having to go thru and delete 300 pictures every week.

Saved my life!
by @tequilasunrlse on 2019/04/17 17:45
I have had this app for years but today it truly saved my sanity. Due to technical issues, my iPhone ended up getting reset to factory setting. So I lost everything because I don’t pay for the iCloud backup through apple. Then I remembered I had shoebox and thank god it saved over 8,000 of my photos. I’m so grateful for this app!!!!
I don’t like it
by Shgxxgjbvcf on 2019/04/13 15:40
I want to stop paying for this.
Post app update, still trash
by canary1234 on 2019/04/13 05:41
I have the latest update for the phone as well as the update for the app and I am still having to refresh the app after a couple of scrolls to see pics from years ago.. it takes Forever to load the pics.
Don't
by goldi1002 on 2019/04/09 22:58
Had I known i wouldve lost videos of my son's birth and videos when he was a baby, Id never download this app. Save your response shoebox I've already contacted your support. "Unfortunately, without an original version, it is impossible to determine the exact root cause of the video with sound but no picture issue you are seeing from before." Funny, they worked when I transferred from Android to my first iPhone but all of a sudden no picture when I got my new iPhone.
Downloading
by binfocus on 2019/04/09 03:12
I love this app. However, in short, I have been trying for over 24 hours for shoebox to finish downloading 49 photos, of which 19 are still waiting! Google photos as one example downloads within a few minutes. Shoebox has always been the tortoise. If they don't soon rectify this I'm going to get rid of them. It's very annoying! 4/8/19 update: great app works really well now. One of my favorite apps. Shoebox has come a long ways since my first review. They really put a lot of effort into this app and it shows! Thanks shoe box!

by Dom Osborne on 2019/04/03 16:38
Lots of people with iPhones will experience “storage full”. Not me, but my girlfriend all the time. It can be hard to get the right picture the first time, so multiple pictures need to be taken. Those just fill up your phone and you may not even want them. Shoebox makes it convenient to be able to delete photos off your phone knowing that they are backed up.
A surprise
by Creegsbear on 2019/03/31 20:25
Surprises are sometimes good and other times not so good. This is like that. Sometimes you see things/people that you want to see and sometimes you see things/people that you don’t. Such is life!

by karmesha12 on 2019/03/30 20:21
Just want to say this app is amazing! My iPhone recently cut off on me and never turned back on so when I went to get my new phone I realized I didn’t back up my photos in iCloud but my shoebox account backed up all my photos like wow 😭❤️ Thanks a bunch !
UGH !!
by Tweety Bird :) on 2019/03/28 03:33
I rlly like this app, but I hate hoe if I import things from sc into my camera roll, and then put it on shoebox, it saves it as that date and not the actual date :( BTW, I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED 12-16 OF MY PHOTOS AND IDK HOW TO RESTORE THEM !!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME😭
I have this on everything
by broadwayLOVER360 on 2019/03/27 12:15
I have this on my computer, iPad, and cellphone. I love that I don’t need to do anything except download the app and sign in and it automatically backs up every picture, with my first child I had a computer crash and I lost all of his first few months of pictures except for the ones that were on Facebook. Granted there is probably about 1000 pictures I really didn’t need but I still would’ve liked, now that I’ve found this all my pictures of my second are completely saved and also I don’t need to pay for it which is fantastic.

by @TheHelenaMarie4 on 2019/03/10 02:10
I’ve used this app for 5 or 6 years, and never had an issue. Suddenly ALL my pictures before 2018 are gone!! I have loved this app for so long, and now it’s acting up. It’s so disappointing. Those pictures were special to me. Now they’re gone.
Shoebox is great for picture organizing, saving.
by AMG0519 on 2019/03/04 18:21
I love that this app not only saves photos for you, it organizes them too. It’s good to know my photos are kept safe and I enjoy seeing the “on this day” photo memory from each day. Highly recommend if you have thousands of photos that you need to store.
This app is legitimate
by griv9989 on 2019/03/04 16:43
You can actually save all your pictures and access them easily with this app.

Saved my memories
by crazylittl3liza on 2019/02/14 18:14
When Microsoft killed my email after telling me to create a new one & my main one would NOT be affected (cyber-stalker) along with it went my 1tb one drive with my nearly 21yr olds entire life’s worth of photos, my deceased beloved show horse who was that 1 special horse, if you’ve ever been around horses you’d understand you get that 1 that never leaves your heart they rise above everything else in your memories you sacrificed everything for them, spent every waking second with them well he was it. In one second every single photo I had was gone I literally started crying so hard I vomited but after google photos deleted my photos because of the unlimited photo size continuously resetting. Out of the blue Shoebox saved the day with my photos going back to 2002!!! Thank You Shoebox!!!

I love that I can save all my pictures in one app and that every once in a while it sends reminders of what it was that I was doing that day yrs. before. I started using this app about 5yrs. So, I sure have lots of memories saved and can always log to my computer and see them all. I definitely recommend it.

Access to photos?
by lost in the middle on 2019/01/27 03:29
It errors out constantly with: must grant access to photos... Settings-shoebox-photos. Thing is, path is right, function -doesn’t exist.... others experiencing this glitch? Do like the concept of this app. But; not its execution..

Disappearing Timeline
by cast1lle on 2019/01/22 01:51
I deleted a few hundreds photos from my Shoebox, but now none of my photos are accessible. The timeline is blank. I can tap on Month and see the timeline, but if I tap on anything—or if I go back to Year—all the photos disappear. Under Settings it shows that I have 0 photos and 0 albums. I should have about 800 photos. I downloaded the Mac OS desktop app and it won’t load. It just gets stuck in Uploading Photos. Update: It happened again! This is the second time I’ve lost at least half my photos.

by nieto101 on 2018/12/30 22:59
I’ve been using this app since December 2015. I love this app I’ve had a lot of new phones since and it manages to save all my photos! I just have a question, is there any way I can save the photo and have the original date of when the photo was taken on my camera roll? I save photos on my camera roll sometimes, I saved a photo recently to my camera roll and it showed the exact date of when I took the picture and I really like that, but that was the only time it did that. I’ve saved photos to my phone occasionally and the original date only popped up on one photo, I would really like it if all my photos had the original dates on my camera roll. Can you help?

Question
by F**kpie on 2018/11/15 16:44
After the pictures are backed into shoebox are you able to delete them off your phone and still be able to see them?
Concept nice but...
by jddbdbhdbd on 2018/11/12 08:53
I have been using this app for years now and all of a sudden, it takes forever and a day to view old photos. I tried to go back a year ago and all I get are gray boxes and they never show, even on WiFi! Quite irritating to me. It use to be really nice but I don’t know what happened. I even deleted photos.
Shoebox is definitely a fun app.
by madisonPW on 2018/11/11 00:16
I signed up with Shoebox as a way of having a backup for my photos. Well, I got more than I expected. Not only are my photos saved, Shoebox sends me a one-page set of pics from a year ago or even older than that (taken the same day as the current day). It is so fun to see my granddaughter, who is 5, as she looked 2 or 3 years ago. Sometimes they even throw in pics older than that. They send one big pic along with 3 other pics from the same day. I keep a lot of them. You’ll love looking at old pics and you can trust them to take care of what’s precious to you - pics you HAVE to keep.
Thank You

Don’t pay for pro in the Apple store
by Jcarlos95 on 2018/10/30 21:51
Love the app but as always Apple wants to be greedy. Just noticed that on the website you can upgrade your account for only $5 a month yet on Apple it charges $10.... Screw apples greedy antics. Literally charging you double simply because you pay through Apple store. As far as shoe box I give the app a 10/10
It's ok.
by NickiNap85 on 2018/10/24 12:33
I don't like that it automatically downloaded ALL my pictures in my phone. I was hoping that I could select the pics to add to shoebox.

Broke my screen and had to get it fixed when I got it back it was completely locked so I had to reset my phone which has not been backed up in months because 5gb ain’t shiii,, anyways I’ve had this app for that long and it backed up allllll of my photos in the background without ever really draining battery or straining the phone.

Sentimental Photos
by Photomobi on 2018/10/20 10:25
I highly recommend Shoebox. This is absolutely one of my most favorite apps? Why? A few times changing phones or resetting my phone and losing pictures on my device was not a problem. I simply downloaded Shoebox again and logged in, and all of my photos are always there.
Won’t upload photos. Have used for over 5yrs
by Crazy71234 on 2018/10/19 20:03
LOVE this app, do wish that videos could upload over cellular...but then I’m just glad you’ve added videos...I’ve used your device for at least 5yrs, have been PRO subscriber for just over 4yrs. While I wish you had more features such as google photos has, including editing ability in app...for the price, reliability, and quality I can’t complain. One issue I’ve had with my other cloud storages is that they don’t export the exif info including date and location, which leads to not knowing the info when in uploads into cloud storages. I’m so glad this info downloads with shoebox which is one reason I continue to keep shoebox. Not only is it the FIRST cloud storage I’ve used, it’s also inexpensive than others. I like the flat rate of $4.99/1hr of Video uploaded and it’s paid for as you need it. I also like that uploads are unlimited. I currently have 850K+ photos & 15K+ videos uploaded. So for around $60/yr for full resolution photos + $4.99/1hr you add as you need it for videos, it is well worth it about 50% less than other cloud storages annually. I’d rate it 4.5stars. Reason for 1 star rating, out of blue, and a week after my latest iPhone 7+ update. App won’t upload photos. It states to go to settings to provide permission. I’ve looked several places and can’t find to where I can grant permission. App’s last update was 3weeks ago...iPhone update 1week ago...so what gives? One star cause what good is a photo cloud app if you can’t upload photos?
Sensational!

I am not super tech-savvy. I have kept all my kids’ pictures on my phone for years. I was afraid to delete them, but I didn’t want to have 100 photo albums on Facebook either. The cloud confuses me (again, not tech-savvy) and I have yet to figure it out. Slowly but surely, my phone has run out of storage space. I found Shoebox and it has been incredible! It’s user friendly - even dummies like me can figure it out. It’s easy to understand. It’s so efficient! I’m extremely happy with Shoebox! I recommend it to all of my friends.

by Timzorz on 2018/10/01 20:01
I was introduced to this app by some random girl I was chatting to online. I was complaining that I always lose all my iPhone photos when I get a new phone because I refuse to pay for Apple’s gimmicky “iCloud” service. She recommended I download Shoebox, and app she personally uses to solve the problem of losing photos. I downloaded, seamlessly uploaded all of my photos and videos to Shoebox’s servers, and immediately got out all my old iPhones too upload all my photos from them too! Finally, I can view and download all my old photos on my new iPhone easily! This is great :) I chose to use the secure iCloud password, which is very hard to remember, so I recommend keeping your password somewhere you can remember Incase you break your iPhone and can no longer access your iCloud Keychain to put your difficult to remember password in!
Shoebox is excellent

Great for downloading and saving photos from my Apple devices. Brenda from Shoebox provides great support. Helped me download photos quicker on my Apple devices. Great technical support.
Awesome

Love shoebox. Able to access my pics when I want, receive little blasts from the past,and security. My phone was stolen. It thanks to shoebox I still have the pictures of my grandkids

by Roncotton on 2018/09/29 17:21
Ok app opens up space But you can get all your photos So you can't really delete them out of your phone but it off lode them If you want chance it Don’t bother with this bs app
Love this app!
by Timzorz on 2018/10/01 20:01
I was introduced to this app by some random girl I was chatting to online. I was complaining that I always lose all my iPhone photos when I get a new phone because I refuse to pay for Apple’s gimmicky “iCloud” service. She recommended I download Shoebox, and app she personally uses to solve the problem of losing photos. I downloaded, seamlessly uploaded all of my photos and videos to Shoebox’s servers, and immediately got out all my old iPhones too upload all my photos from them too! Finally, I can view and download all my old photos on my new iPhone easily! This is great :) I chose to use the secure iCloud password, which is very hard to remember, so I recommend keeping your password somewhere you can remember Incase you break your iPhone and can no longer access your iCloud Keychain to put your difficult to remember password in!
Thanks!

I am happy to have a place to store my photos! Thanks for this app. However, I’m not seeing some things in the description such as how to upload several pics at a time. There are many that don’t upload from my iPad, but I don’t know how to manually upload them. I hope I can keep using it for my photos. I do not understand what the difference is between the free and the pro versions. But I got a ton of emails telling me to “choose a plan” or it will stay on the free plan. It said I’d still have unlimited storage for my photos. So I didn’t do anything, because I didn’t mind that they wouldn’t be the absolute best resolution. Then I started getting charged $5 for a subscription. ??? I may keep that if I can still upload my pics, but please tell me who to contact that will actually answer on how to manually upload my photos? I’d really appreciate it.
Saved my memories
by crazylittl3liza on 2019/02/14 18:14
When Microsoft killed my email after telling me to create a new one & my main one would NOT be affected (cyber-stalker) along with it went my 1tb one drive with my nearly 21yr olds entire life’s worth of photos, my deceased beloved show horse who was that 1 special horse, if you’ve ever been around horses you’d understand you get that 1 that never leaves your heart they rise above everything else in your memories you sacrificed everything for them, spent every waking second with them well he was it. In one second every single photo I had was gone I literally started crying so hard I vomited but after google photos deleted my photos because of the unlimited photo size continuously resetting. Out of the blue Shoebox saved the day with my photos going back to 2002!!! Thank You Shoebox!!!

I love that Shoebox keeps all my + over 2,000+ photos safe and brings them to me from my past. As a woman in my mid-70s, I enjoy looking back to see photos of my wonderful past; this is precious to me. The transitions of my life, my family present and past, my loves present and gone, my home and my glorious flower gardens, dogs, cats, chickens, my doves, insects, and oh how I love the Bees. All, this and more kept safe for me until I can get to organizing and categorizing the seasons of my life, which is always on my mind to begin. The program may have a glitch now and then, but I know you’re always working to perfect the app. So, I sincerely appreciate your efforts to make Shoebox a Premier Photo Storage App. Thanks Shoebox! I aorrciate your hard work to keep my memories alive and well. 🤗
Great App...
by Abf<3Stf on 2018/02/28 11:55
but not perfect yet. After getting a new phone, it seems to be downloading a lot more pictures than I have. The total pictures downloaded exceeds the total pictures on my phone. I have yet to look on my desktop to see if any have been doubled, which is what it sounds like it did. I also wish that once pictures are put “in an album”, that they would just move that picture to the album or checkmark them so we know which ones have been moved. Need a better way of organizing. Another con is that it slowly downloads pictures that have been moved to the cloud, even after disabling optimization. So I have a great amount (about 17,000) that have yet to be transferred to Shoebox yet. I still love the app, but just hope these features would be better!
Help!
by nieto101 on 2018/12/30 22:59
I’ve been using this app since December 2015. I love this app I’ve had a lot of new phones since and it manages to save all my photos! I just have a question, is there any way I can save the photo and have the original date of when the photo was taken on my camera roll? I save photos on my camera roll sometimes, I saved a photo recently to my camera roll and it showed the exact date of when I took the picture and I really like that, but that was the only time it did that. I’ve saved photos to my phone occasionally and the original date only popped up on one photo, I would really like it if all my photos had the original dates on my camera roll. Can you help?
Shoebox is definitely a fun app.
by madisonPW on 2018/11/11 00:16
I signed up with Shoebox as a way of having a backup for my photos. Well, I got more than I expected. Not only are my photos saved, Shoebox sends me a one-page set of pics from a year ago or even older than that (taken the same day as the current day). It is so fun to see my granddaughter, who is 5, as she looked 2 or 3 years ago. Sometimes they even throw in pics older than that. They send one big pic along with 3 other pics from the same day. I keep a lot of them. You’ll love looking at old pics and you can trust them to take care of what’s precious to you - pics you HAVE to keep.
Five star worthy..but..
by LuvApL on 2017/12/01 01:07
Pros- I like the fact it comes with free unlimited photo storage, and some limited video storage. This app is always being updated, and offers a desktop download for saving photos on your computer. Photos on the app do not count towards phone storage on iOS devices. Cons-Since the recent update, I now have duplicate photos. The paid version is not worth getting unless it included an option to have unlimited video storage. No way to include photos anywhere except from Facebook. I have been using this app for a long time now, but it shows one year of use.
I have this on everything
by broadwayLOVER360 on 2019/03/27 12:15
I have this on my computer, iPad, and cellphone. I love that I don’t need to do anything except download the app and sign in and it automatically backs up every picture, with my first child I had a computer crash and I lost all of his first few months of pictures except for the ones that were on Facebook. Granted there is probably about 1000 pictures I really didn’t need but I still would’ve liked, now that I’ve found this all my pictures of my second are completely saved and also I don’t need to pay for it which is fantastic.
Simple and fantastic!
by Emifemily on 2018/10/11 18:07
I am not super tech-savvy. I have kept all my kids’ pictures on my phone for years. I was afraid to delete them, but I didn’t want to have 100 photo albums on Facebook either. The cloud confuses me (again, not tech-savvy) and I have yet to figure it out. Slowly but surely, my phone has run out of storage space. I found Shoebox and it has been incredible! It’s user friendly - even dummies like me can figure it out. It’s easy to understand. It’s so efficient! I’m extremely happy with Shoebox! I recommend it to all of my friends.
Excellent Google photo competitor thats been around much longer
by zyme_ on 2017/12/24 20:38
True google copied most everything in this app, but it's still free (with a megapixel max that downscales - but my 5MP camera is under that limit so for many people this might be the perfect backup software). Pros: Retains and if you pay the small fee unlimited saved pics and size unmodified is a better deal then googles unmodified option - and unless you have a new high end camera theres no need to pay anything. Also retains all photo details which is great Cons: Like newer ios versions they removed the geographical (google-maps like) zoomable view with auto grouping nearby photos by zoom amount and proximity. I loved that view mode much more then this town/state/country header groups they both switched to. Extra: - If I could ask for anything it would be server side high-end video HEVC re-encoding (Divx?) be available and commenting for shared photo albums.
Good for Nothing Customer Service
by Dubaz123 on 2017/12/05 00:14
I loooved this app. I joined in 2015 and used it so often. It saved my photos and videos perfectly, I even successfully backed them up onto a hard drive. About 2 months ago- all of my photos disappeared. I tried contacting customer service about 4 different times. At first, Brenda acknowledged my inquiry, but never further assisted me. After 3 other attempts, no one responded or tried to help. Now today by some miracle bringing it up in conversation, I went to show someone the issue I'm having on the app, and all my photos were back. Im so thankful that they are, however i would've loved some decent assistance as there was sensitive material that would have been missing.
Downloading
by binfocus on 2019/04/09 03:12
I love this app. However, in short, I have been trying for over 24 hours for shoebox to finish downloading 49 photos, of which 19 are still waiting! Google photos as one example downloads within a few minutes. Shoebox has always been the tortoise. If they don't soon rectify this I'm going to get rid of them. It's very annoying! 4/8/19 update: great app works really well now. One of my favorite apps. Shoebox has come a long ways since my first review. They really put a lot of effort into this app and it shows! Thanks shoe box!
Saving data and pics!
by onesteadymann on 2017/12/16 17:12
I don’t know about you but I don’t like losing my data when I lose my phone or my iPad. This is a great way to recover your data! I’m not a computer but expert I don’t know much about them at all. But I can use this program. Simply it’s a very simple way you have a place to go get your data again! I discovered the iPhones don’t talk to each other. Or at least I can’t get them to work. So I upload what I wore and then I can go get it with another computer or iPad or whatever!
Love it!
by Dezondra on 2018/09/07 22:52
Love love love this app! It’s getting easier to navigate, which I really appreciate. But my absolute favorite thing about this app (besides unlimited storage for pics) is that when I download a pic back onto my phone it still has great quality. Google photos doesn’t have as great of quality for unlimited storage of pics but shoebox does. I’ve printed them out too and they’re great. I love this app and would be devastated if anything ever happened to it!! Thanks for such a great product!
Love it!
by Regan1607 on 2018/09/11 21:09
Been using this app for over a year now and it’s exactly what I needed. I am paranoid that I will lose my photos and I’m not great about backing up my phone. All of my pictures are backed up automatically in case I don’t have a chance to download them and something happens to my phone. Such a great relief. I also like the daily email with photos from the same day of past years. Fun to look back for a second during the day and keep things in perspective!
It’s good, but there’s two problems.
by Londerson on 2018/08/26 00:55
This app is great, and it shows and keeps all your pictures, but there is two problems. One is that when scrolling through pictures, there is duplicates of the same photos, when there is originally is supposed to be one. Also, it doesn’t keep videos, and if it did, it would be way more helpful. But, this is a good app and I do recommend this app for picture storage.
Best storage app for photos
by ThirdDayJunkie on 2018/02/10 15:58
I am a photo hoarder and I always eat up the memory on my phone with photos. When I got my new phone, the AT&T guy suggested google photos but I didn’t like that app, so I stumbled across this one and I gave it a try. I LOVE this app. I was able to free up most of my memory on my phone, but still have easy access to my photos. They also organize them according to dates and will send you photo memories from previous years.
Photo Cloud Storage with so many great features, a daily memory
by Lisalcolorado on 2018/03/20 18:31
Photo Cloud Storage with so many great features, a daily memory email to remind you of a memory on that specific day, the functionality, practicality and features of this app make it a must. Plus you can share stored photos to social media. It backs up automatically and is a true gem in the land of photo storage apps and cloud storage. Highly Recommend This App!
Helpful
by Dom Osborne on 2019/04/03 16:38
Lots of people with iPhones will experience “storage full”. Not me, but my girlfriend all the time. It can be hard to get the right picture the first time, so multiple pictures need to be taken. Those just fill up your phone and you may not even want them. Shoebox makes it convenient to be able to delete photos off your phone knowing that they are backed up.
Awesome!
by Millennia4036 on 2018/03/23 20:48
I’ve been using shoebox for about two years now, and I can honestly say it’s such a great app. It helps me save some space on my phone. Rather than keeping photos in my camera roll, I sometimes opt for shoebox. It also serves as an extra backup for your photos. I really enjoy this app, and can’t wait to see what else it offers in the future. ☺️ This says a lot because I never write reviews for apps 😂😂😂
Need a better map feature
by Sahil Deschenes on 2018/05/30 07:31
I have been using shoebox for years. And the one thing I would like to see is a reasonable map feature. I would like to see all my pictures on one map that I can zoom and interact with. The same way you can do on the photos app that comes with iPhone. It would be great to travel along the map and see my photos sorted by where they were taken. Love everything else about the app and highly recommend, but have been waiting for a good map update for years!
Great photo storage app
by Rbaseball form on 2018/04/04 15:50
Unlimited photo storage? YES!!!! This is great. I have a lot of photos and it great to have them backed up and easily accessible on my phone as well as my computer. Highly suggest it for those who like to take photos. I also love the daily emails. Sometimes they are stupid since I took a photo of French fries 6 years ago, but most of the time the memories are meaningful and I love the daily reminders.
“Pro” is only viable if your credit card never changes
by AZ Marie on 2018/01/07 02:57
All of my photos were downgraded to low res because my automatic payment failed. My credit card company sends me a new card with a new number practically every 9 months. I get way too many emails to see or deal with this in time, so I miss the short deadline and lose all of my high res backups. I would happily have paid retroactively for the lost weeks even with a penalty if it would have meant keeping my high res photos, but since their business model is to immediately downgrade & delete high res copies, I’m out of luck They have lost a paying customer because of this.
Great backup, no ads, love the memory emails!
by WideSmiler on 2017/10/05 00:24
Great backup solution for all photos. Shoebox won me over with the “this day in history” emails I started getting showing me memories through photos of what I was up to on the same day a few years back. Cool feature. Great app, does just what I want it to, and never interrupts me with ads or notifications. Can’t ask for more than that for a free app.
This app is a life saver
by esmiheart on 2018/01/14 04:03
Mini story(how this app saved my life) My iPhone 5s stopped working and nothing was backed up onto my iCloud. I was scared I had lost all my photos, forget the selfies I had my family photos/videos. i has forgotten I had downloaded this app years prior. I logged into my account on my laptop & boom every single photo/video on my iphone5s was automatically saved onto my app. Thank you shoebox app!!
Thank you
by Dina_tqm on 2018/08/02 01:55
My phone died today and I had no back up. I was told that there was no way to recover the data. As I was standing there and crying at the apple store, I remembered that I had shoebox app downloaded a long time ago. I was so happy to see all of my photos (mostly my kids) on it. I only wish I purchased a pro package, because almost all of my videos were gone:(
Amazing
by I3xit on 2018/05/30 04:39
I only store photos and about a grand total of twenty seconds of video, so I have no need to purchace the vip package, or whatever they call it. They give you unlimited photo storage and a reasonable amount of video storage for free. Not only that, but you can share any photo or group of photos with anyone you would like via web browser link. This is amazing, but could use a few upgrades. This app does not, but should allow you to... • Only upload select photos, not your whole liabrary • Allow you to set a password on specific albums or photos Overall, definetly worth the time, and I would have no problem purchasing the upgraded package, since this company is in no way greedy.
Love my shoebox
by Victoria VO on 2017/11/18 23:18
What’s so great? It automatically updates from your photos. You take the pics within 24 hrs they are in your shoebox. Need it faster. Open app and update. Delete from photos to get more room. Delete all your photos. No worry. They are still in your shoebox till YOU delete from there. Make sure you update shoebox to insure pics are there. Mistakes happen.
Thank you Shoebox!
by joyful user! on 2018/02/23 02:46
My phone was stolen and I was heartbroken to think I have lost all my pictures. So many memories, so many beautiful pictures of family , family, trips... However, my thoughtful daughter had created an account on ICloud for me, and what wasn’t my joy when I was to recover all my pictures. I could hardly believe my eyes! I’m so thankful for you.
SO THANKFUL FOR THIS APP
by Reiko niooo on 2018/10/24 05:39
Broke my screen and had to get it fixed when I got it back it was completely locked so I had to reset my phone which has not been backed up in months because 5gb ain’t shiii,, anyways I’ve had this app for that long and it backed up allllll of my photos in the background without ever really draining battery or straining the phone. Plus unlimited??
I love this app
by 710349957 on 2018/04/19 14:32
It’s so convenient and I’m able to delete the pictures from my camera roll and save storage while still having access to them through this app. It also makes it easier to get them on my computer. The only downside is the video storage is so small but for unlimited pictures I’m cool with it!
Don’t pay for pro in the Apple store
by Jcarlos95 on 2018/10/30 21:51
Love the app but as always Apple wants to be greedy. Just noticed that on the website you can upgrade your account for only $5 a month yet on Apple it charges $10.... Screw apples greedy antics. Literally charging you double simply because you pay through Apple store. As far as shoe box I give the app a 10/10
Saved my life!
by @tequilasunrlse on 2019/04/17 17:45
I have had this app for years but today it truly saved my sanity. Due to technical issues, my iPhone ended up getting reset to factory setting. So I lost everything because I don’t pay for the iCloud backup through apple. Then I remembered I had shoebox and thank god it saved over 8,000 of my photos. I’m so grateful for this app!!!!
Only one downside
by real.ed on 2018/05/15 23:38
I do like shoebox because all my photos download and I can access them from different devices, but the only downside so far, is that you have to pay for video storage after you run out of the video storage, which happened to me. Over all though I would recommend for someone that has a lot of photos but not much storage on their devices.
Good but not great...
by El RuLee on 2017/10/11 12:44
I’m not a really big app guy who has a gazillion apps on my phone so I am not sure if this applies to all photo storage apps, but my main annoyance with this app is the fact that you have to open the app in order for the app to store your photos, going under the tab of “ home “ will it get it done. I wish the app would just automatically store your photos without having to tell it.
Shoebox Cloud Storage-Great !
by Little Mr. on 2017/09/17 21:07
•••I have had the free version of this for almost 2 years and always a free system !! I did run short of Video storage~ so am right now going for the Pro version ! The pics/vids are stored at full resolution, to be printed, resaved to your PC-Android-iPhone Photo gallery // always ready for your use.. Great app ! BTW- I was never plagued w/ nag request to upgrade..Definitely a ++ !
A great way to save photos from multiple devices
by Waco Bob on 2018/01/01 17:24
Love this app! It has helped me save on storage space on my phone & tablet. I can easily access this app anytime and download good versions of my photos whenever I need to share them with family or to temporarily load them back on to my phone to make prints at a photo store.
Great App, Works Seamlessly, Awesome App Support
by Skullbro1980 on 2018/04/28 16:58
Was seamless to open and upload my pictures. Or so I thought, I have just over 160 pictures on my iPad. Shoebox after saying it was finished syncing only uploaded 59. I’m hoping this gets fixed. Edit - The App Support people helped me realize it was a settings problem with iCloud. It wasn’t the Apps fault, to keep Originals may annoy some people though. Still happy with Shoebox. 😊🤘🏻
Sentimental Photos
by Photomobi on 2018/10/20 10:25
I highly recommend Shoebox. This is absolutely one of my most favorite apps? Why? A few times changing phones or resetting my phone and losing pictures on my device was not a problem. I simply downloaded Shoebox again and logged in, and all of my photos are always there.
Love it!
by 8Adriana80 on 2019/02/04 16:47
I love that I can save all my pictures in one app and that every once in a while it sends reminders of what it was that I was doing that day yrs. before. I started using this app about 5yrs. So, I sure have lots of memories saved and can always log to my computer and see them all. I definitely recommend it.
Highly Satisfied, 5-Star Recommendation
by Jordan Leigh P. on 2018/07/25 05:45
This dependable product has proven to be a truly reliable software application as it has allowed me to effortlessly upload high-resolution photos/videos onto its functional platform. Needless to say, this product is effective and efficient. Shoebox has earned a 5/5 stars from this satisfied user!
Disappearing Timeline
by cast1lle on 2019/01/22 01:51
I deleted a few hundreds photos from my Shoebox, but now none of my photos are accessible. The timeline is blank. I can tap on Month and see the timeline, but if I tap on anything—or if I go back to Year—all the photos disappear. Under Settings it shows that I have 0 photos and 0 albums. I should have about 800 photos. I downloaded the Mac OS desktop app and it won’t load. It just gets stuck in Uploading Photos. Update: It happened again! This is the second time I’ve lost at least half my photos.
One thing
by silverjohtofire on 2017/11/15 06:28
Could you guys possibly add something to delete duplicate images..? I’ve had to delete the app multiple times for storage and downloaded it to store more images but it keeps saving the same ones I’ve uploaded before. It would be really useful. Still a great app though
Simply perfect
by Itsmeppl-239 on 2018/05/14 01:54
This app is so underrated. I am so grateful for this app. It freed up space on my iPhone and I didn't have to buy storage from Apple. It's simple to use. I put this app on my iPad and computer so I can access more than just 1,000 photos on all my devices. In fact I can access photos from any computer.
Shoebox is great for picture organizing, saving.
by AMG0519 on 2019/03/04 18:21
I love that this app not only saves photos for you, it organizes them too. It’s good to know my photos are kept safe and I enjoy seeing the “on this day” photo memory from each day. Highly recommend if you have thousands of photos that you need to store.
Shoebox
by tmbutle043 on 2017/10/17 10:56
I have had this app. About 3 years I love being able to save my pictures on this app. freeing up space my phone. Love it! It saves pictures with date it was taken and keeps them in order by dates and by year. Give it a try like I did. Pretty sure you will like it too !
Heidi, Totally Awesome!
by Workin for the $ on 2017/11/26 15:00
I have been using this app for years. I don’t usually rate anyone or anything. Your app is one of the best apps ever! No popups, it is free, no advertising! Everything is easy to find and you ask if I want to see an event or time period that I may want to look at again. Keep up the great work you are doing 🤗
Fun way to generate memories
by Soxhood on 2018/03/17 16:34
This is such a great app. The free photo storage might be the most valuable feature; but, if you opt in for the daily "what happened on this day in history" feature, you'll get a daily email with photos from the past. So much fun and always brings back memories.
