New Shoebox Mobile App Helps Scan Old Photos

1000memories, a service that enables users to collect and share memories online has come up with a remarkable smartphone app, called Shoebox, allows users to scan and archive old photos with their iPhone’s built-in camera.

Unlike many other apps, Shoebox is an advanced photo-sharing service. Whenever a user scans old photos with his/her smartphone, the app automatically detects edges and makes them right. The app enables users to crop, straighten or rotate photos after scanning. Furthermore, users can also add written annotations, such as captions, dates and tags to keep the old memories enjoyable.

The scanned images not only save on the user’s device, but these will also upload to 1000memories from where users can share them with other family members or close friends. The 1000memories’ partnership with Internet Archive makes it certain that your digitized material will remain stored on 1000memories forever and that too securely.

The idea behind developing this app is to celebrate the old hidden memories online. The team at 1000memories says:

“Our mission is to bring the albums, scrapbooks, and photo-filled “shoeboxes” of our lives out of the closet and into an online, shareable space where they can be remembered and celebrated, together in one place”.

You must be thinking about the quality of scanned image. You can clear your doubts by comparing an image scanned on devices with 8-megapixel cameras, such as iPhone 4S, to the images scanned on dedicated hardware scanners. You will find both results rather comparable. Interesting, isn’t it?

The good news is that you can have this amazing app absolutely free. The storage of image in 1000memories is also free of cost. The firm has already launched the Shoebox for iPhone a week ago, while the Shoebox for Android is in the pipeline.
