    By Elenaofpueblo
    As someone who runs up memory and rarely handles all my photos with the care they deserve I am so grateful for this space in the digital world that holds the memories safe after phones crash and jump drives break.
  • Great thanks for this incredible app!!

    I am delighted with the application. It's just wonderful! Many thanks to the developers, they made an incredibly cool app. Works perfect! Can't stop enjoying Shoebox!!
  • Help!

    By nieto101
    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?

    I love shoe box with the exception that I thought it was saving my videos to only find out it was only save 30 seconds after I have deleted sentimental videos
  • Always syncs EVERYTHING

    By torries13
    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
  • Lost pictures

    By Pinktractorbabe
    Thanks to you, shoebox, I HAVE pictures that were gone forever on my new phone. The transferring of my photos from old phone to new phone was not a good thing as I had not backed them up recently. Not good!!! But thank you SHOEBOX. You saved my very important pictures.
  • Thank you

    By ribbired
    I have broken my phone several times and to know they are backed has made me so happy for all the special moments.
  • Great service

    By Dance away!
    So easy and reliable... a friend recommended it as I kept getting notices saying my memory was full!
  • READ THIS!!!!

    By Kehfjdj
    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
    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
    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
    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
    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
    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.

    By Reiko niooo
    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??

  • Sentimental Photos

    By Photomobi
    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
    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 what gives? One star cause what good is a photo cloud app if you can’t upload photos?
  • Sensational!

    By Zydecobum
    Shoebox, this app has always been a great part of my photo experience. Could it improve? Why of course. But in the present moment it’s great app!
  • Love

    By bjebje1993
    I love this app! I have all my pictures in one area so I don’t have to search in a million apps!
  • Great app

    By Snomet
    It does exactly what it supposed to do: back up photos easily and automatically Oh they’re accessible wherever you want them
  • The best

    By SandraD66
    I have recommended this app to so many people now! I love how many photos it saves and makes my life so much easier when I switch phones so I can save and load my photos
  • Simple and fantastic!

    By Emifemily
    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.
