How TIMebox works for you

  • Timebox automatically organizes all of your photos & videos, in your Camera Roll and Photo Library 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.

Share Your stories and MAKE MOVIES

  • Share your stories and videos whenever you want via Mail (including MailDrop), Message, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr and most social networks.
  • Timebox also creates beautifully designed PDF books 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.
