Good idea but not there yet

Got this to take photos off my space starved iphone6 without offloading them to a computer and then an external drive. It’s supposed to be able to transfer all my my photos to an external drive all at once. Not happening. I tried on my phone numerous times and it always quit before completing task. Ive had to do it manually. Very tedious. Saw many updates to app so I decided to try my wife’s phone, no go, it still will not do a complete offload of photos to a thumb drive. Have been in contact with developers and theyve been nothing but helpful. Im hoping that eventually the transfer all photos to kwilt shoebox will become a reality, when it does this rating will go straight to 5!

Need to Rewrite Search Routine

I have over 22,000 photos I want to download to the shoebox. Unfortunately I am on my fourth try. The download stops for no obvious reason and has to be restarted. On the good side, the app goes to where it left off, BUT! The BAD news is that to find its place, it starts at the beginning and looks at each and every file to see whether it has been already transferred. Their programmers should review binary search techniques to recover the programs current place. The present way is TEDIOUS!

Also when downloading many files be aware that it takes from 10 to 15 seconds per photo. That does not sound like a lot of time until you do the math. 3600 seconds per hour means that it only transfers at most 360 photos per hour. I have had my phone tied up for over 3 full days and still have 1500 to go. If the process is stopped, then the above search issue greatly extends the time. If the app had a quicker way to recover its place such as suggested above then it would be practical on startup to stop it during the day and do the transfer only at night making the initial startup less painful. ,


I absolutely love the Shoebox!!
Connected it to a 2TB external hard drive that I back up all my photos on and have a whole life of memories on my phone, via the Kwilt App, without having to use up my storage. AND I offload all the pictures from my phone (not a single problem there!) to the hard drive at home via the App as well to back them up on the go.
Literally the BEST!
