The app to get if you know someone joining the military
If you have someone going to boot camp or basic training this is a must download. The app allows you to send letters to boot camp straight from your phone. No post office no envelopes no stationary needed. Although I did still write letters I ended up sending more Sandboxx letters as my at the time marine officer candidate requested me to use sandboxx because he was getting mail faster. Not only do you get to send letters but every week they send you what your recruit is doing that week during training along with letter topics and suggestions in case you don’t know what to write about.
Whenever I had an issue with the app the customer support team was extremely helpful and responsive. All my issues were taken care of and I could focus on supporting my loved one with letters. This is a great app to keep our loved ones motivated during the hardest time of their life. I would recommend again and again.

Worse app ever
Sandboxx is awful. I wish there was a numerical rating and I would give it a zero. In theory, the morale booster credits SHOULD be an awesome feature. You would be able to buy a package of credits and then share them with your family and friends. However, the first issue is that you have no control over who uses your credits. Since the app asks you to invite people to the morale booster, that would suggest that the credits that you put in there would ONLY be available to those that you share the link with. Well that is incorrect. Your credits can be used by ANYONE, absolutely ANYONE who logs in and pulls up a letter to send to your recruit. That is irregardless of whether you know the person or not.
Secondly, I've had issues with Sandboxx releasing the entire list of individuals who had EVER sent a letter to my recruit. While they did adjust this policy AFTER I reached out about that, they refuse to inform you of who used your morale booster credits. If you don't want individuals to ask who used their credits, then you need to offer the ability for the individual to assign their credits to specific people.
If you want to use Sandboxx, stay away from the morale booster. It's more headache than it is worth.
I am not happy with the experience I’ve had with this. First of all I bought some credits and wrote my first letter to send and I pressed the send button and sent me a message back saying message failed to send or something along those lines so I tried again and it sent. Great! Well it sent it twice! And it used two credits! It told me it didn’t send the first time or I wouldn’t have tried again. So I wasted a credit sending a letter a second time. Then it logged me out recently and I went to log back in and it says my email and password is wrong so I try to reset my password with my email, and it says email doesn’t exist! So I try to sign up with my email thinking it might let me in that way and it tells me my account with that email already exists But why won’t it let me in or reset my password? So I can’t get into my account and I’m not buying more credits with a new account because I already have them in my actual account that it won’t let me in to! Customer service has been of no help. And I’m upset because this has been nothing but a hassle and I wasted money just trying to send my husband letters! Better off just handwriting and using stamps! Not happy!!!!!!
