Introducing Timebox Photo Galleries, the innovative new version 6.0 of the Timebox Photo Journal!
Timebox Photo Galleries is the only app that enables creative photo enthusiasts to design and personalize realistic 3D/AR spaces that their families and groups can use to PRIVATELY combine, organize, explore and enjoy all the photos and stories of the things they do together.
We listened to your comments and feedback, added our own ideas, design goals and vision to create a ground-breaking new version of Timebox. The team worked hard, completed the design requirements, performed thousands of tests, fixed bugs, conducted mini Beta tests and have finally decided it's ready for you to try.
About Timebox Photo Galleries
If you’re a current Timebox customer you’ll still see your photos, videos and Live Photos organized into daily Photo Stories but now you’ll see them through a new customizable, collaborative, photorealistic 3D/AR world of:
Gallery buildings and rooms
Grid and Map Timelines
Active Photo Frames
Two Galleries are included with Timebox and ready for you to design and decorate:
One private gallery called Photo Library Gallery.
One starter Group Gallery (if you are logged into iCloud).
Express yourself by designing and decorating your Galleries. Add additional rooms, windows, colors and hundreds of reusable 3D models. With just 2 buttons, Paintbrush and +, you can:
Change the exterior building style, roof color and wall color.
Add to the exterior:
Your own 3D (USDZ) models.
Change the interior wall color, floor material and lighting.
Add to the interior:
Active Photo Frames
Grid and Map Timelines
Your own 3D (USDZ) models
All 3D models will be free during the Beta test. When Timebox ships the 3D models will be available for free or as In-App Purchase.
Explore your Galleries by "walking around" the 3D scenes using the normal iOS gestures to pan and pinch zoom.
Privately share your own 3D Group Galleries as a unique new way to present your visual stories and collaborate with your family, friends, colleagues and clients. Create and personalize your Gallery. With the + add the Photo Stories from your Photo Library Gallery that everyone wants to see. Invite your friends to visit and see what happens next as everyone adds their Photo Stories to yours creating a long-lasting shared memory.
Group galleries are great for anything shared: trips, events, memorials, celebrations, sports, projects and more.
Further explore your Galleries in the interactive AR (Augmented Reality) mode by tapping the AR button, holding up your iPad or iPhone and walking around.
Be sure to try the fun new Active Photo Frames and play your favorite Photo Stories as slideshows anywhere in your Galleries. Choose from multiple frame shapes, finishes, colors and options.
Even though this version of our app is new, many things remain the same including:
The fact that your privacy is very important to us. None of the data in the Timebox app is ever retained by or visible to our company.
There are no extra signups, accounts, passwords, uploading or ads.
