Timebox shared journals enable groups of people, whether family, friends, professionals, clients or traveling companions, to collaborate and co-edit their photos, videos and notes.
Here’s an example of how Timebox can be used as a portfolio and to share information on a home construction project.
My brother Steve’s construction company is building a new solar home in Durango, Colorado. Every few days, Steve takes some photos of the construction. Lately he's been using Timebox to add notes and details about the photos and the status of the project.
Steve has created a Timebox shared journal that he can use to keep the clients of his latest project up-to-date on the progress of their new home. He can invite his clients to view the shared journal via text message or any other messaging service. He can also set access for his clients so they can make changes to the journal so, for example, they can add photo stories of their own, including their ideas for landscaping, furnishings, paint colors, etc.
Unlike social networks like Facebook, Timebox shared journals are completely private: you own and keep all your full fidelity photos and text in your own secure iCloud storage. If any of the invited participants are not iOS users, there is a also a Timebox web app for them to view the shared journal.
When the construction is complete, Steve will formally turn over the house to his clients. For that occasion, Steve may give them a housewarming gift and Timebox makes it simple and afordable for him to create a beautiful hardcover book of all of the photo stories from the construction. In Timebox he can tap Print, choose the stories to be included in the book and, through our printing partner Kite.ly, his book will be delivered directly to the clients. For only $33 USD with free shipping!
The great thing is that this hardcover book will last for decades and can become a permanent part of the new house.
Steve’s Timebox can also include photo stories from his other construction projects which will make it easy for him to show his work to prospective clients.
Timebox is a perfect portfolio for tracking and presenting any project – construction, landscaping, theater or new product development.
