== Guardians of young artists ==
Do your kids love to create? When your kids’ drawings, projects, and “crate” kits start piling up, Artbox lets you preserve the memory while you maintain a decluttered home.
Build the healthy habit of digitizing your kids' artistic creations so you can enjoy and celebrate their creativity with peace of mind.

== System Requirements ==
• Requires a device with iOS / iPadOS 14.0 or later (iOS 15 recommended)
• Mac Catalyst app requires macOS 11.0 or later (macOS 12 recommended)

== Our Story ==
Thanks for checking out Artbox! While spending more time at home in 2020, my wife and I became subject to our amazing kids generating mountains of arts and crafts.

We were so proud of our kids for finding new ways to explore their creativity, from homemade drawings, to lego castles, to educational crate-kits. However, we began to notice one unfortunate byproduct: these projects were piling up!

We thought about how we could minimize the clutter while still celebrating our children's creativity.

Artbox allows us to track and record our kids' artistic journey while simultaneously being able to ‘recycle’ the build-up. Goodbye clutter, hello efficiency! Our kids have even caught on to the idea, and get so excited to add their latest creation to their unique and colorful profile. It's a win-win!

We hope you enjoy using Artbox in your home as much as we do!

Nice app, but no easy Export/Backup All

I really like Artbox and am a Pro subscriber. One feature that I really wish Artbox had was an easy way to export ALL data—metadata and media. I know I can export all metadata by itself, and I know I can export it each project by itself. But what I really want is a way to do a full, complete backup of all media and metadata (for all projects) with one click and then pick the export location. Syncing to iCloud is great, but that isn’t a real backup. And I want a real backup I can export and save to a location of my choice. Is that something you could add? (It seems like it wouldn’t be too hard since you can already to it piecemeal.)

It would also be nice if my spouse and I could somehow sync/share Artbox with each other instead of having to use it separately.

Keep up the great work!

Update Apr 12 2023:
Hi Arandur, I thought you'd like to know that project media export, as well as artist profile sharing is now available in Artbox as of version 2.11!

Original developer response:
Thanks Arandur for the feedback! These items are on the roadmap and would be an excellent addition to the app. Thanks so much for being a Pro user!

Great app

The crop tool doesn’t work properly on my iOS. Also it would be cool if you could create a public portfolio instead of always sharing permissions with people. If you add please keep things private with the option to do so ,

It’s good…but

I actually use this app to store my own artwork and I really wish that I could have multiple photos in a project without having to pay, especially because I make a lot of 3D artwork and want to show multiple angles. I do understand why you need to pay because they have to make money somehow, but honestly I would prefer ads. Also, and this is more important honestly, I wish that you didn’t have to crop the images to be square. Most of my artworks are rectangular, or the photo of it is. Because there’s a set crop ratio I have to crop out parts of my art, or zoom out and include extra background. It’s very frustrating. Otherwise I like this app and I can at least use it decently free, some similar apps require membership :(
