Shoebox was launched back in late 2012, and for those who have been looking for the photo backup tool for your phone or computer but didn’t know this app, you will be glad you are reading this.
Despite all the cloud backup platforms we have today, most haven’t been able to wholesomely backup our photos and let us view them with ease over our across our devices. If you have use a lot of apps and software to back up your photos, you will know that most are either too complicated or missing some important functions.
Shoebox accomplishes a lot and at the same time keeping the interface clean and sane to use. It’s mobile app lets you sync your photos to your Shoebox account and also lets you view your backed up photos in Timeline mode (month and year). Deleting and sharing photos on your account is a breeze as well. Shoebox also comes with a powerful search feature that lets you search from a myriad of filters such as neighbourhoods, types of cameras, countries, seasons and periods.
Another great feature about Shoebox is that it works on your Mac and PC too, you can download the desktop program from their website and it will also sync photos and videos from folders you selected.
Best news of all, Shoebox offers unlimited photo backup but for the free version it only stores a photos in a maximum of 10.6 megapixel (3264 pixels on the longest side) and video backup up to 15 minutes which is reasonably good enough for web viewing and sharing. For less than US$50 a year on the Pro subscription, you get the same unlimited storage for photos in orginal resolutions and up to 10 hours of video backup.
