Deleted this app years ago, but...


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 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. 🤗



I am happy to have a place to store my photos! Thanks for this app. However, I’m not seeing the things others are on all of my devices, such as how to upload only a couple of pics at a time, and right now, I have multiple pics because it uploaded my old phone pics and new ones (many were the same). I am trying to delete them but nothing is happening on my iPhone X! Please keep updating the app so it works well with the newer versions of the various phones and tablets. 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 am getting a ton of emails telling me to “choose a plan” or it will stay on the free plan. I get tons of emails though I’ve changed my settings. It’s intrusive. Otherwise, I do like the app so far.
