Timebox Photo Journal

The free Timebox app for iPhones and iPads is a private journal of long-lasting daily photo stories automatically created from your 1000s of full-fidelity photos & videos in your Photo Library or Camera Roll.

NEW! Privately collaborate with family and friends via shared photo journals. 

From everyday adventures to big once in a lifetime adventures. From a trip to the city zoo, a day on the slopes, a weekend camping trip, to a safari on the Serengeti, all your adventures are worth remembering. 

Timebox Always Respects Your Privacy

Unlike many apps, none of the data in the Timebox app is ever retained by or visible to our company, Pepper Networks, LLC.

All of the data that's in the Timebox app is either on your own device (iPhone or iPad) or in your own personal iCloud account. In other words, it’s only ever visible to you or people that you invite to share your data (i.e., to a shared journal). 

If you delete the Timebox app from your device, you’ll delete the copy of the data that’s on your device. If you delete your personal iCloud account, you’ll also delete the copy that you have in iCloud

It literally takes only a few seconds to create and order a beautiful hardcover book of your favorite Timebox stories and you'll always get FREE shipping!

HOW DOES Timebox Work?

Take photos and videos as always. Add a few captions, a few details, a few notes, a few names. We add location names, maps and more. Timebox will put everything together along with your full-fidelity photos and videos so you can remember better.

How TIMebox works for you

  • Timebox automatically organizes all of your photos & videos, in your Photo Library or Camera Roll including Live Photos into daily photo stories.

  • Timebox also automatically finds entries in your Calendar and suggests titles for your daily stories, making it much easier to remember and find a trip or event.

  • Naturally Timebox adds GPS location names to stories, but it also divides stories into sub-sections by location to support busy travel days when you go to multiple places in one day.

  • And Timebox properly handles time zones so photos are put in the correct day’s story, even when you’re traveling across the globe.

Write your stories and customize your timebox

  • Add as many of your own words as you want to each story including captions, titles, locations, dates and tags.

  • Your text can go almost anywhere to make stories that interleave photos and text.

  • Customize any story by changing the order of the photos, hiding them (without deleting them), or adding photos from another story.

  • Make new stories by selecting photos & videos from any date, story or stories and combining them into a single story.



  • Rather than a big endless grid of photos, Timebox gives you a scrolling timeline of your stories including one key photo of your choosing per story, its title, date and location.

  • Tapping and viewing a Timebox story shows the photos and text elegantly arranged and formatted, instead of a boring grid of thumbnails.

  • By just tapping the Timebox timeline year and month chooser, you can immediately scroll to a specific year or month, much more efficiently than the Photos app.

  • You can of course instantly search for any title, text, tags or locations in your stories.

  • You can also search for all the stories from this date in any year, or during this week in any year or all of the new unread stories that Timebox automatically created for you from your photos and videos.

Collaborate and Share Your stories and MOVIES

  • Create private shared photo journals with other Timebox users to collect and edit stories from all of the people who went on a trip or participated in an event.

  • Share your photos and videos whenever you want via Mail (including MailDrop), Message, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr and most social networks.

  • Timebox also creates beautifully designed PDF ebooks so you can keep, share and print collections of your photo stories.

  • And, with one tap, you can make and share a stitched-together movie of your Timebox photo stories, including the all photos, videos and Live Photos, plus their titles, captions and locations - no editing necessary.
